In today’s age of professional social networks we’re at risk of hiding behind carefully crafted Linkedin profiles which offer little insight into someone’s abilities or personality.  This is the reasoning behind the launch of a new networking event to be held in Manchester at the newly refurbished Neighbourhood eatery and bar in Spinningfields later this month.

The Men’s Action Network (MAN) is a networking event promising to mix the very best of the new with real face time, including keynote speakers Scott Fletcher MBE, founder of ANS and one of Europe’s foremost IT companies and Social Chain Marketing CEO Steve Bartlett.

MAN is the brainchild of Neighbourhood Brand Director Ashley Williams and entrepreneur Mike Trott-Barn who believes there is a niche in the market for an unashamedly male centric networking luncheon for the modern businessman.

Mike said; “The reality is that networking is still an essential skill that should be fine-tuned and perfected.  Decision makers still value face-to-face contact. Your digital profile is still very much a ‘cold call’ and new ideas need a two-way dialogue.

“We’ve lined up two amazing speakers to inspire entrepreneurs to share their experiences and inspire future proof thinking.”

Taking place on Thursday 30th June 2016, the MAN event will see a coming together of like-minded professionals for an afternoon of knowledge share, great food, in great surroundings – all in the aid of a good cause with monies raised being donated to testicular cancer charity, Baggy Trousers UK.

Tickets (£45pp) include event attendance, welcome drink, 3 course meal with some wine. Sponsorship packages are still available. More information can be found at
