Last September we trialled our first BCI Walk & Talk session in the Mendips, and it was a great opportunity for members to make some new connections within the industry whilst getting some much needed fresh air. As the world opened up once again, we were keen to offer our members more creative ways of networking, so we teamed up with Outside to organise these sessions with groups of 12 people (similar to our members’ lunches) who are keen to don their walking boots and explore the stunning countryside around Bristol and Bath.
Our members’ lunches have long been a firm fixture in the BCI events calendar – the perfect opportunity for a small group of members to connect and exchange information about their businesses. That said, these sessions are way more than just pitching; they offer a shared space for connecting with your peers to share successes and discuss challenges. These lunch sessions are continuing as normal every month throughout the year, but we’re currently getting more dates in the diary for the walking sessions too, starting from different locations around the area on a quarterly basis.
The location for this Walk & Talk will be the Woolmers and Cleeve Hill circular walk, which is roughly a 9km loop. We’ll meet in the car park along Cleeve Hill Road (BS49 4PH) ready to leave at 9.30am.
Over the course of a 3 hour circular walk, you’ll get to spend 10-15 minutes chatting to each of your fellow walkers. No agenda as such, just clear open space for thinking, connecting, sharing experiences and exploring possibilities. The BCI team will be joining the group too so it’s a great chance to chat to them about getting the most out of your BCI membership.
This event is exclusively for BCI members and registration is required in advance via the button below. For those who are also members of Outside, this event is free of charge. If you’re not a member of Outside, the cost will be £10+VAT.
Bristol Creative Industries is the membership network that supports the region's creative sector to learn, grow and connect, driven by the common belief that we can achieve more collectively than alone.
