Over 80 business delegates boarded a specially commissioned c2c train that ran from Basildon to Shoeburyness last week for some networking with a difference. The ‘networking express’ which was organised by the Basildon office of the Essex Chambers of Commerce, in association with c2c, Holiday Inn Basildon, Radio Essex, and South Essex College, was a unique networking opportunity for Essex businesses to get better connected.
Managing Director for c2c, Julian Drury, joined the ‘networking express’ to share both the experience as well as update businesses on plans for development of the c2c service. A lovely ‘Paddington Bear’ style packed lunch and refreshments was kindly supplied by Holiday Inn Basildon. Paul Butler, Head of Employer Engagement from South Essex College and Denise Rossiter, Chief Executive of Essex Chambers of Commerce also presented on board the train.
Sharon Saunders, Basildon and Thurrock Office Manager for Essex Chambers of Commerce said, ‘The networking express was a great success and we have had some lovely feedback from businesses that attended. I would also like to thank our presenters, as it is not easy presenting on a moving train! It is great to work with c2c on this event and we hope to plan another one for 2018.”
