It’s no secret that Cardiff has a talented community of finance industry professionals who are putting Wales on the map for its finance sector. and they were out in force on Friday, at the Cardiff Finance Professionals networking event.
According to its LinkedIn group, the quarterly event, organised by Steve White of Thornbury Collective Services, was intended for “Financial Directors, Accountants, Book-keepers, Factoring & Invoice Discounting companies.”
“The event was an amazing success and saw a great turnout from people in all areas of finance in Cardiff.” – Shaun Thomas, Head of Marketing, Simply Factoring
We sponsored March’s event, which was a great opportunity to network with possible referral sources and finance professionals who can complement our services, as well as catching up with some familiar faces. We were genuinely impressed by the number of useful new contacts and we look forward to finding out how we can help each other.
On a personal level, this was my first experience of a networking event and I received a warm welcome from everybody I spoke to. The attendees were eager to chat and offer advice whilst sharing their own stories, and, of course, swapping cards.
Along with Steve was his co-organiser, Mark Bennett from Ultimate Finance. The guests were a refreshing mix of seasoned regulars and new faces, including Nigel Adams, long time MD of Severnbay Corporate Solutions, Ross Mitchell who is establishing his company, Ross Mitchell Wealth Management, and Alyson Macnamara, who has vast experience at Barclays.
All in all, it was a great night that was enjoyable and productive in equal measures. The next one is on Friday 13th July and we can’t wait!
