On Tuesday 8th March, we held the XXV edition of our Elevator Pitch networking event. This edition took place at Arbina Restaurant, member of the Spanish Chamber. The restaurant is located in the area of Fitzrovia and offers the traditional Mediterranean cuisine in the heart of London.
Everything was ready for the event at the private room downstairs, which fitted perfectly with the characteristics of this event, where Mr. Javier López de Arbina, welcomed everyone on behalf of Arbina.
The event was chaired by María Prieto, our Events & Communication Co-ordinator and Cristina Carmona, Head of Corporate Relations and Communication, who explained the dynamics of this activity to the participants, whose main purpose is to provide participants with the possibility to expand their network and to explore further avenues of collaboration with the rest of participants.
After the brief presentation, each attendee had 2 minutes to give a concise and concrete introduction about their company’s main line of activity and services they provided. Having done so, there was a second opportunity for each participant to ask questions to the rest of participants.
Should you be interested in participating in the next edition of this networking event, there are just a couple of things you need to know regarding this format: Usually there are up to 16 participant companies, and only one representative per company is allowed. However, it is possible to have up to two companies from the same business sector. Therefore, attendees are able to meet a wide variety of companies from different sectors and exchange their business cards.
On this occasion, there was a wide variety of sectors represented among the 11 companies that took part in this edition: Cooking your Spanish (Cookery and Spanish lessons), E-Lixir Consulting (Digital Communication), Harwood Hutton (Accounting and Auditing Services), Hispalis Group (Construction), Lloyds Bank (Banking and Financial Services), Melia White House (Hotel), Sargadelos Porcelain UK (Fine Porcelain), Scornik Gerstein (Legal Services), The Bentley London (Hotel), and The Client Academy (Business Consultancy Services).
After the round of questions, everyone had the opportunity to chat and continue networking over a delicious breakfast with some of the most iconic products of Spanish cuisine that the venue serves.
Thank you to all the professionals who have been part of the last edition of the Elevator Pitch and our gratitude to Arbina Restaurant for kindly hosting the event and welcoming us.
