Guinness World Record Attempt 2014
A massive thank you to each and very person who participated in the attempt. Also thank you to our hosts, sponsors, all the fab local firms involved and to the 16 Business Clubs from right across the East Midlands that we have been working with.
Whilst we didn't beat the world record, what we all managed to achieve together was just so much more and so much better for everyone who participated!
Not only did we all have a blast, we were able to throw away the strict and stringent Guniness rule book and provide an even better networking experience for absolutely everybody giving rise to more networking, more contacts and more opportunities.
Check out the fab video of the day from Will at Epix Video : epx.me.uk/1iBEU1c
We all achieved one of the biggest pure networking events ever in the East Midlands, we had 16 networking groups all working together which is unprecedented plus we are delighted to report a very happy room full of networkers from across 3 counties and more!
It’s the talk of the town with really positive comments and feedback plastered all over both Twitter and Facebook, we’ve had fantastic phone calls from people thanking and congratulating us all on our achievements. Brilliant teamwork!
And for the competition results that you have all been waiting for .......
* In joint third place was Lincoln Business Club and Business Integrity Group
* In second place was North Notts Business Connections (hooray!)
* and the winners in first place and crowned Champion Business Club was Newark Business Club. Many congratulations!
So in summary, happy networkers, happy sponsors, happy organisers, happy Macmillan Cancer Support!
Keep your eyes peeled, we’re already working with all the business clubs to bring you another fabulous event next year!
