Professional Oldham Networking Group Launches in Oldham

  • Posted on

A NEW networking group is launching in Oldham, aimed at local business-owners, consultants and professionals.

The group is called Professional Oldham and has been launched by representatives of firms including Pearson Solicitors and Financial Advisers, which is sponsoring the first event in July.

The aim is to provide quality, enjoyable networking opportunities for businesses based in the area and the group is being partnered by Oldham Business Edge magazine, as well as the Oldham Chronicle.

The first event is a wine-tasting evening with Oldham wine writer Simon Woods, whose CV includes writing about wine for the Financial Times. The event will be held at the Naked Bean cafe, next to Oldham Library, Greaves Street, on Thursday, July 7, from 6pm to 8pm.

Professional Oldham has been launched by Robbie MacDonald of Oldham Business Edge and the Oldham Evening Chronicle, Suzanne Wright of Pearson Solicitors and Financial Advisers, Bridget Batty of Limetree Public Relations, Stephanie Doherty of Caremark Oldham and Angela Higham of Dr Kershaw's Hospice.

Suzanne said: "Professional Oldham is a new, quarterly networking group of like-minded, business owners and professionals, alongside growing and bigger businesses. The focus will be on informal networking and we hope guests will have the chance to talk about wider issues of interest to all with consistent networking as well as a great social atmosphere.

"We hope events are being held quarterly, so there will be no onerous commitments for anyone to attend weekly or monthly events and we're keen to hear what other people want from networking in Oldham."

In addition to writing for the Financial Times, Simon has edited the award-winning annual Which? Wine Guide and contributed to numerous magazines and also writes an online blog.

Despite his expertise he promotes an unpretentious attitude to wine, believing it should be enjoyed by everyone regardless of their knowledge of wine.

Tickets for the wine-tasting event are £15 per person. For details, email: Alternatively call Angela Higham on 0161 624 9984.
