L4N UK is a monthly Halifax based ladies networking group, who aim to encourage, support and generally help grow connections and business for female owners and executives in pleasant surroundings. We’re based in Croft Myl, a fantastic office space at the top of the town centre. The friendly and casual networking meetings will be held at the new time on the last Thursday of each month, from 12 pm–2 pm, with some lunch included too, and the best bit, it’s free to attend.

“Networking at L4N is easy! You can make so many contacts in this relaxed and friendly atmosphere”said Liz, from George Knows,the new owners of L4N.“I’ve enjoyed the networking sessions and have ended up working with some of the people I met and also made some new business friends. If you wish to, you can get advice and help from people in the room as many attendees are from diverse and different businesses and backgrounds.

At L4N we want to make it as welcoming as possible. It’s not a formal meeting at all, we want everyone to be at ease when they come to a meeting, with coffee and tea on tap, and a friendly atmosphere. Gone are the scary 60 second pitches you may have heard about, instead we have open conversations about how we can all work together and help each other succeed!”

If you’re new to networking, or not confident about it, here are our top three networking tips to really get the most out of your networking experiences!

  1. Practice what you are going to say! You will need to be able to talk about you and your business. So, practice a little introduction, and cover who you are, what your business is, and why you came to network today. It could be that you’ve never been to networking before, or you want to make new contacts. Make sure you say everything you want to say, you don’t want to miss something out!
  2. Get business cards printed! Business cards are an easy way to give out your business details quickly, and it’s a reminder to them of who you are. Remember to bring a few, (it’s better to have too many, than to run out) and make sure they look good
  3. Enjoy it! It shouldn’t be a chore to go to networking. After all, it will benefit your business, which will then in turn benefit you. It may be nerve-wracking at first, going to a room full of people you don’t know, but once the initial nerves settle, and you talk to people, you’ll relax and enjoy it.
