Since July 2019 I have been organising a monthly Meetup for BD people in Bristol… it’s a great mix of in-house BD people, business owners responsible for BD, independent consultants, and suppliers of BD related services.
It all started as a solution to the problem of BD being quite a lonely profession, but has become a great resource for learning and collaborating too.
The format is a ’round table’ type discussion, where everyone can contribute, with a maximum number of 15 people attending any given event.
The subject matter is always BD related, and based on the format there is no ‘selling’ or ‘presenting’, just honest discussion and debate and sharing of knowledge.
The events are held online at 9am on the second Wednesday of the month (follow the Eventbrite link below to see more dates).Book your place
