Networking Evening at Metro Bank
Yesterday evening some of the WSM team headed to Kingston for a networking event located in the new Metro Bank store. The bank is a relatively new one to the British banking scene and this particular branch organises monthly networking events to encourage business networking in the local area. This particular event was organised in conjunction with the ICAEW with the aim to give business advice to SMEs and start-up businesses and in particular promote the Business Advice Service; a free opportunity to get advice from chartered accountants, including WSM.
The evening was hosted in the main section of the bank giving us an opportunity to see the differences of this new enterprise. Drinks and nibbles were provided and Andrea from ICAEW gave a brief talk about what they do. It was a relaxed affair and a perfect chance to talk to a variety of different people.
