The MKFM Column, by Gillian Watson.
As a new member of MKFM’s commercial team I wanted a key focus to be on looking after new and existing clients.
It is an exciting time for MKFM with the up-coming launch of our sister station The Beat on DAB across Herts, Beds & Bucks, and we want to constantly keep people informed of our movements.
When I first started working in Milton Keynes I went to several networking events, mainly coffee mornings.
These were so beneficial in meeting influential people from in and around the city, which was a key aspect of my new role.
After speaking to my colleague Joanne (many may know her as Irish Jo) we came up with our own monthly networking event with a bit of a twist. And so The Meet of MK was born.
Mine and Jo’s background is in corporate events in London and we wanted to use this experience when creating The Meet of MK.
The evening runs from 5-7pm with a warm welcome from yours truly and the rest of the team.
You can then mingle away while sipping on a glass of Prosecco – always welcome after a long day at work.
During the evening, there is an inspirational talk from one of our Principle Partners about their business, an update on our community work and a prize draw to win some amazing prizes such as free advertising for a month.
So remember those business cards for the draw! There are also a few nibbles that come out once all of the formalities are finished which should keep you going until dinner.
We have been thrilled with the attendance and feedback of our first two events held at The Casino MK and are looking forward to our third.
Entrance is free for our existing clients and their guests and £10 for anyone else who would like attend.
The Meet of MK is held on the last Thursday of every month.
Please go to http://www.mkfm.com or listen on-air for the next location and how to register to attend. We hope to see many more of you there!
