met walking run a series of walking networking events around bristol and the south west. our events combine the essence of traditional networking with a casual outdoor walk. meet like-minded business professionals, escape the office walls and engage in some light exercise while taking in scenic bristol and picturesque countryside locations.
For a number of reasons I think traditional networking breakfasts and lunches are dead. It is yesterday's model. I’m always looking for new ways to connect with people and I love that Met Walking is so casual. I can come along in my gym gear and I don't have to present myself as something. And it’s exercise!
I think that when you are walking and talking it is less confrontational. It's very easy going, relaxed and generally a nice way to share information. Walking side by side really helps you connect.
I found out about Met Walking about a year ago. I quite like walking with my clients so the opportunity to walk and network really appealed to me. The biggest thing I like about this is what we think around authenticity. We’re not in a business environment, people just come along as themselves and however they feel comfortable. Everyone talks about what they happen to do. But at Met Walking they form real relationships with others.
Met Walking is a networking event series around Bristol and the South West that encourages business owners to get outdoors and do business away from the desk on a relaxed scenic walk. If you enjoy the great outdoors or want to add some light exercise to your working day, then Met Walking is the group for you. Each event lasts roughly 90 mins. Full details can be found on specific event pages
One of the perks of Met Walking networking events is we explore many different locations/walks in and around Bristol which keeps our meetings fresh and gives businesses the chance to get to a meeting that suits them. You can see our full list of upcoming events on the site, and please feel free to book yourself on to any that your fancy!
Many of our events centre around a breakfast, lunch or evening social event with the walking element taking place nearby. Please check out our event calendar for more information or get in touch for further information.
