Networking the Twitter Way

@GreystonesOpen was started to get Greystones networking and socialising at tweetups on the last Thursday of every month. There are a huge number of tweeters living in and around Greystones and Delgany, most of whom have never met each other but possibly tweet each other quite regularly.

So what is a tweetup? It’s an informal get together with people who use twitter so we can all meet face to face making new contacts and friends in the local area. The first GreystonesOpen was held in Mrs Robinsons Bar last month and was a great success and we look forward to growing the numbers month on month.

Jill O’Herlihy started @greystonesOpen. This is what she said about it“I hope to get a different pub or restaurant to host each GreystonesOpen event so people attending get to check out all the local establishments. All we ask is that the host for each event provides a few nibbles for attendees and reserves a small area for us. There are so many businesses in Greystones and Wicklow on twitter and I would hope that GreystonesOpen will assist these businesses to grow their twitter followers and in return to grow their business.”

“Everyone is welcome to attend the next GreystonesOpen which takes place on Thursday 25th July. We are looking for a host for the July event so if you would like to put your name forward please tweet me at @greystonesopen

You can contact Jill on Twitter via @GreystonesOpen and @jilloherlihy or contact her via her website: http://about.me/Jilloherlihy

Business Network Community

sunzu business networkingEcademy, is an online business network relaunching in 2013 under the new name Sunzu.com

Chairman & CEO Lyndon Wood (author of ‘Diary of a Fortune Hunter’) is taking the business network to a new level with the official Launch of Sunzu planned for January 2013

The vision is a local global place to do business, learn and share to grow.

Focusing on ‘we’ rather than ‘me’  Lyndon explains his plans for the new platform.:

I acquired Ecademy on the 26th July 2012 and the one thing that has driven me is my belief in creating something special for the business community around the world, in fact I am extremely passionate about it and somewhat obsessed by achieving it.

The times here are very exciting and I am really looking forward to the future because I strongly feel that as a collaboration around the world we can change the economy for the better and be the proper business resource that is so much needed.

This is a brand new platform with some great functions and uniqueness not found anywhere else and that will really assist business.

The change that is happening will benefit business owners globally by providing guidance, help, offline gatherings, trading and the many SEO benefits we already receive and a lot more.

The members we have, and will be growing even further are start-ups, micro businesses with up to 15 employees and the more established business owner.

An exciting exhibition  will be held on Tuesday 13th November 2012 in Arus Lorcain Arklow.

  • Arts and Crafts – from drama groups to church choirs
  • Environmental Initiatives – from community gardens to protecting our heritage
