As the world changed in March and we were not able to do our regular monthly networking in The Restaurant Bar and Grill, we decided to put on our first social networking on zoom. Who knew that 13 weeks later we would still be running them? Every Thursday at 11am our ever-expanding group of existing and new members, along with some new faces, have been coming together to catch up and chat about business and personal experiences of the week; how we are feeling and how we can support each other. We’ve had guest speakers imparting learnings of lockdown, financial tips to make sense of the support available, health and safety guidance to name but a few. As you would expect from a BITA event, we have learnt, shared and laughed; one week we even ended with a sing a long! We’ve been described as a lovely welcoming group of people and as we come to the end of lockdown, this regular networking event is planned to continue, a fact which myself and the Liverpool board are really proud of. We really are people that know people that help people, and being able to reach connections, support and provide a platform for people to come together is truly at the heart of what we do.
