Breakaway is a relaxed yet focused networking breakfast. It all kicks off around 7.15am. As people arrive they relax by grabbing a hot drink, chatting and greeting familiar faces and one or two new ones. From about 7.30 they sit down and each member does ‘one minuter’, Some people talk about their business and some about current trends relevant to their sector. Paul spoke about The Norfolk Developers Conference (NorDevCon) business track which this year is better for business than ever before. The majority of conference delegates are part of an SME so the opportunity for B2B networking is extensive. Nick Applin said some very kind words to the group based on his experience from NorDevCon in 2015 and we hope to see a few more faces from Breakaway this year.
Most people at Breakaway opt for a lovely full English breakfast with locally sourced home made sausages. If an English breakfast isn’t to your taste there is a choice of pastries, cereal, yoghurt, fruit, toast and jams.
At every Breakaway breakfast there is a ten minute slot given by one of the members. On this occasion Kirsty Favell told us about cats, cardigans and copywriting. It was a funny and informative talk with great content, everything you’d expect from a very talented copywriter. Kirsty taught us that all writing must start with a SFD and if you want to know what that is you’ll need to ask myself or Paul!
Breakaway finishes off with another round robin with everyone talking about the referrals and the successes they’ve had in the last week. We always get a warm welcome from Breakaway and really enjoy going. The fun and good humour is usually as free flowing as the coffee and we can’t wait to go along again.
