July News

Thank you to those of you who attended GPN on Wednesday 15th July at the White Swan.  Your support is really appreciated and it was lovely to see you.
I am pleased to announced to you in preview that is now live and gives you more information about our Network, not too dissimilar to that contained here, but with the advantage of all being in one place continues as this is our hub where you are still able to contact each others directly. Let me have your feedback.
Some information about GPN:

The Gay Professional Network is your platform to promote your cause, your business, venue and yourself. It  helps your further your business or career and makes meaningful business and social contacts. You get connected, proactive and productive.

It is also a get together of like minded people who enjoy meeting other people. All very nice people in a relaxed atmosphere.

You may want to read a few facts, such as how far reaching we are,  about GPN, here. We are now several million in the world! Possibly the biggest network anywhere.

To be a fully fledged member of  GPN cost  £1 a day, £ 5 a week, £20 a month or £200 a year payable on a recurring basis which gives you FREE registration to all the networking events, including those in the City, Walthamstow and more to come.  If you are ready for this, proceed here.   This link gives you the LinkedIn and Facebook addresses. We connect you with people anywhere in the World.

Our newest full member is Martin Gilbert from the Direct Line Group.

There are many advantages to be a member such as free legal, financial, property or events consultation and free entries to many clubs, discount and other perks. (Registration/membership does not necessarily include drinks and canapes, we rely on the venues to sponsor this in exchange of considerable publicity to our Network worth several thousand of pounds, we try to support venues owned and managed by LGBT people) 

It was good to meet new and old friends.
I trust you made some useful contacts last night.

Thank you for Béatrice Colbrant for taking the pictures: they can be seen here, if you would like to learn French contact Béatrice directly, I heartily recommend her. Mazz also took some pictures, please send ;-)

The raffle for Positive East raised £53.04, thank you very much for your generosity. The winners of the raffles prizes are too numerous to list here and again thanks to the generosity of Beatrice Colbrant for donating most of the prizes, pictures of the winners are on Beatrice's Blog here.
