LOVELY FEEDBACK FROM OUR COMMUNITY
"ongoing business has provided me with a steady line of work"
Coming across Real Networking back in 2017 was by far the best thing that happened for both my business and as a business owner. The support and feedback you receive from Mette and Linda is genuine, honest and relatable. Not to mention the connections and ongoing business which has provided me with a steady line of work. I've been to many different styles of networking events and groups and Real Networking is definitely a standout - and then some! Give it a try, there are currently four venues to choose from!

"I have gotten business from each meeting I have attended"
If you are looking for an effective networking group that is friendly, supportive, and helpful then you need to be a member of Real Networking! Meetings are productive and informative; I have gotten business from each meeting I have attended. I would thoroughly recommend. Big thanks to Linda, Mette & Lesley and the rest of the RN team.

“a true community”
Real Networking has provided me the opportunity to meet other people who run their own businesses at venues that are convenient and hospitable. There are no yearly membership fees and members simply pay for the meetings they can attend. This is a dynamic, enthusiastic group who share their knowledge, expertise and friendship. It has been a wonderful experience for me to network and to grow my business. In addition, I have made many wonderful friends and have happily used the services of other members. I have belonged to other networking groups in the past but Real Networking excels at creating a true community that is welcoming, flexible and professional.
"I've met some great people, started developing new relationships which have already led to passing and receiving business referrals"
I LOVE networking with the Real Networking Gang! I've met some great people, started developing new relationships which have already led to passing and receiving business referrals. Very relaxed environment and run by a professional but fun team of ladies with Mette and Linda and now Lesley too! I would highly recommend booking onto a meeting and I look forward to meeting you then!

“the most striking thing I enjoy about Real Networking is the energy and enthusiasm”
When I first heard about Real Networking I was very pleased to find a local networking group that I could dip in and out of depending on business demands on my time. The meetings are packed with people offering many different services, some of which I have used over the last few months. The most striking thing I enjoy about Real Networking meetings is the energy and enthusiasm of those attending.

"you can really look forward to attending Real Networking meetings, and enjoy being part of a proactive and supportive community online too"
When I relocated to Surrey from Warwickshire in 2018, I was tasked with re-establishing my business in an area I didn't know. Finding Real Networking has been BRILLIANT for me. The group is welcoming, both professional and relaxed, and it's inspirational. Over the past two years the network has helped open many doors and I've built professional relationships as well as friendships too. Unlike many networking groups, you can really look forward to attending Real Networking meetings, and enjoy being part of a proactive and supportive community online too. Thank you Real Networking!

"it has always been good for business"
I have been going to Real Networking events for over 12 months now. It doesn't matter whether they have been in Camberley, Egham, Chertsey or Woking the experience is always similar. A very friendly and well run meeting. The format runs smoothly and the guest speakers have always been worth a listen. It has also been good for business as I have been lucky enough to get referrals from the group. On top of that I have used the services of other members, both for me personally, but more importantly for my clients. The group makes it easy to make proper connections with people very quickly, which can be very hard to do. So if you have a spare 2 hours come along, it will be well worth your time.

"genuinely one of the best network meetings I’ve attended"
I’ve been attending the Real Networking meetings for about a year now and they are genuinely one of the best network meetings I’ve attended. The group is so welcoming, friendly and supportive and the meetings are always well organised, informative and fun. Mette and Linda do a fab job and the guest speakers they arrange are always so useful and motivating. I’m so thankful that I was introduced to the Real Networking group and I thoroughly look forward to the meetings each month.

“discovering the power of word of mouth”
I very much enjoy going to Real Networking and meeting like minded people. We share experiences and we nurture each others’ businesses. It feels good helping entrepreneurs and startups in our local area and discovering the power of word of mouth. Over time I have also developed very good friends and acquaintances. Thank you Mette and Linda for being the facilitators of such a great network.

“a great balance of professional and personal networking”
I have regularly attended Real Networking meetings in Chertsey and Egham since they started in 2017. Linda and Mette have created a great balance of professional and personal networking, fostering connections that start at meetings and continue in follow up get togethers.
The group attracts employed and self employed people, from a variety of sectors, both enjoying successful results. I have also seen people join with an idea or dream, or those who come simply to be around like minded, positive people. Often those same people return at a later date to showcase their reality, having had the support and encouragement of the Real Networking community. Meetings run at a convenient time of day at relaxed venues, creating a really buzzy atmosphere. The Real Networking name represents the ethos of the group and I encourage anyone to come along and try it for themselves.

“fast growing and active Facebook group means you can access a huge amount of local people even if you can’t get to every meeting”
Real Networking meetings are informal, relaxed & friendly. Business owners can make new contacts, build relationships, form partnerships and make friends. I have been made very welcome at every meeting and have received great support for my charity, MidasPlus from a number of members - thank you. At most meetings there are 20-30 people but they also have a fast growing and active Facebook group (1,200+ as at 1st Jan 2020). This means that you can actually access a huge amount of local people even if you can’t get to every meeting. I look forward to seeing friendly faces and some new ones during 2020.
