What Guests Said About Our Last Only Connect Christmas Event

"The event was burs/ng with interes/ng people to talk to and the co-hosts did a wonderful job in ensuring you were never alone. My conversa/ons ranged from physiotherapy to interns, via interior design! Interes/ng and useful both professionally and personally". Emma Sambrook,Director of Development and Alumni Rela9ons, University of the West of England "I bought some Grand Raffle /ckets as I was having an excellent /me networking and the Lord Mayor's Appeal is a very worthwhile cause. To then go onto win an iPad Air in the Raffle just put the cap on a great evening!" Peter Woodall, Director, DeloiAe UK "Only Connect - an event that makes you leave with new business rela/onships and friends. The only networking event in Bristol that has the right people to network. I have been aMending for three years and can honestly say each event has been fruiNul with business contacts but most importantly they have been enjoyable. Cannot wait for the next one!" Tyrone Jones, Events, Amika, London

"The evening was a great networking opportunity, refreshingly with the feel of an exclusive social event which made making introduc/ons and connec/ons effortlessly easy...”. Ian King, Commercial Director, John Carpenter, Aspire Consultancy

“I thoroughly enjoyed Only Connect last Thursday. I hadn’t aMended an event for a couple of years and it made me realise that it is a great way to meet new people and to catch up with lots of people I know in a relaxed and friendly environment. Only Connect is definitely one of the best networking events in Bristol.” Elaine Brown, Project Manager and organiser of Bristol Young Talent and the Bristol Bright Future conferences.

"Whilst I have ben to several Only Connects in the past, this is the first /me I brought my wife. She was unsure of what to expect, but came away impressed and had a great /me. I always enjoy the event and can only recall one /me that did not lead to business. On this occasion, I was shocked by so many nice follow-ups and replies. To top

it all, I have also received direct business already, from a new contact in less than 3 days aWer the event. I’ll have to bring my wife more oWen. I’m very much looking forward to the next one!" Nigel Peeck – Director, N3 Display Graphics Ltd

"Only Connect is like a tall cocktail - a base cordial of business networking with a splash of glamour, a twist of sparkle, and a fundraiser topper. This was my first experience at Only Connect and it was fun, produc/ve and a great opportunity to meet new people Caroline Oldland Associate Community Consultant

“As a first /me aMendee, I was doubNul about speed networking, could I get across all I needed to? I should not have had reserva/ons, mee/ng new people with whom business may be possible was relaxed, informa/ve and fun! The hosts were excellent in enabling contacts to be forged. For me personally, bumping into an old acquaintance I’d not seen for 30 years just added even more to the event." Tony Rees, Bristol Balloons (Marke9ng)

"This was my first Only Connect event and I threw myself into the speed networking as well as aMending the main event itself. I'm glad I did both. What a lovely, fun evening! It was all really well organised and I made heaps of great contacts. I will definitely be signing up for future events."

"Jamie Breese’s Only Connect Christmas event is the best networking event I have been to this year. The event had a great atmosphere with good networking opportuni/es and was professionally organised." James Poole – Director – Gordon Poole Agency Ltd. "Wonderful occasion, great atmosphere and great networking event. A pleasure to aMend and meet such great,

happy people" Roger Griffith

"Only Connect provides an opportunity to network with a wide range of professionals from different sectors. I am now delivering a large project to one of the companies I met at the event." Jill Maidment, Director, Natural Talent

"Many congratula/ons on another fabulous Only Connect success! The events are truly unique and its not surprising why they are so popular as they really do give everyone a great opportunity to make very useful contacts and enjoy a fun and glamorous occasion. I loved mee/ng old friends and acquaintances and making some new ones, as well as being able to make a couple of introduc/ons which I am sure are going to be very mutually useful to the people concerned."
