Business Networking on ‘The Pride of Hull’ went down a Storm!

The Business Culture Hull’s latest business networking event went down a storm on the P&O ferry The Pride of Hull with over 100 people attending.

Tim Hennah, the P&O events coordinated, had previously attended several business events put on by Tony Bowler, the owner of The Business Culture Hull, and was so impressed by the attendances, compared to other networking groups in Hull, that he then approached Tony to ask if he would consider hosting one of his events on their ferry.  Tony jumped at the chance!

Even though the ferry was moored up for the afternoon it still felt the effects of the recent hurricanes that had devastated America with the gangway having to be raised for safety reasons.  The guests at one time where going to have to use mini buses to access the ship but luckily the winds calmed down enough to allow them to walk on.

Guest speaker Sheila Granger, world renowned clinical hypnotherapist with over 2,500 practitioners across the globe, talked about time management and having the right mindset to carry out business tasks while at the same time recognising the importance of work life balance.Dave

Sheila’s talk resonated with everyone in the audience so much so that she had to setup a temporary office on the ship to talk to people wanting to know more.

Tony then presented the ‘most inspiring member of the month’ award to Melisa Money of Directive Training.  This monthly award is presented to the member who Tony thinks is making the most out of their membership and that’s not just for attending the monthly events but also by; using the website to connect with fellow members, self-publishing all their good news stories though the site and engaging with Tony on a regular basis.

Tony then invited Andy Steele from 360 Accountants, the main event sponsors to take to the stage (it was really a dance floor and unfortunately Andy did not show off his dancing skills) to say a few words about his practice and about the wonderful things that are happening in Hull at the moment.Nick

The event itself was filmed by a local videography company and fellow member, Feet First Studios.  We are all looking forward to seeing the final publication!

Once the talk and presentations where over, the buffet was served and everyone enjoyed the open and relaxed networking format.

Most of the attendees were hoping the ferry would then sail off into the distance but unfortunately the crew asked them to leave by 2:30pm so they could finish off preparing the ferry for its next voyage.

Tony would like to say a massive thank you to both Sheila Granger and 360 Accountants.
