ELEVATOR PITCH | XXVIII EDITION

On Thursday 1st December, we held the XXVIII edition of our Elevator Pitch networking event. On this occasion the event took place at the Mayfair premises of Lloyds Bank, Patron of the Spanish Chamber, who kindly hosted our guests.

Mr. Joe Street and Mr. Amit Varia, from Lloyd’s, kindly welcomed attendees upon arrival and made sure everything was ready for another edition of this successful format.

Attendees had the opportunity to network before the presentations round started.

The event was chaired by Jesús Agra, our Foreign Trade Manager and Cristina Carmona, Head of Corporate Relations and Communication of the Spanish Chamber of Commerce. After reminding attendees the dynamics of this format, the round of presentations kicked off, with our host Joe Street starting the proceedings.

After Joe’s presentation, each attendee had 2 minutes to give a concise introduction about their company’s main line of activity and services they provide. After this, there was a second round where everyone had the opportunity to ask questions to the rest of participants. After the round of questions was finished, everyone had the opportunity to chat and continue networking over breakfast without time constraints.

Representatives from the Spanish Chamber of Commerce and Lloyds Bank welcomed the attendees.

Should you be interested in joining the next edition of this networking event, there are just a couple of things you need to know: 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, a wide variety of sectors were represented among the 12 companies that were in attendance at this edition: De España a Londres (Relocation services), E-Lixir Consulting (Digital Communication), DLF Mobility (Transport of goods, Storage and Handling goods), EY (Business Consultancy Services), Lloyds Bank (Banking and Financial Services), Haymarket Risk Management (Business Consultancy Services), Kuorum (Online Database Services), Milingual (Language Services), My New London Property (Relocation Services), Norte by Bilbao Berria (Bar, Restaurant and Catering Services),  Paradox Partners (Education, Training and Learning) and Spanish in Nature (Language Services).

As always we would like to thank all the professionals who joined us on the last edition of the Elevator Pitch in 2016 and our gratitude to our Patron Lloyds Bank for kindly hosting the event and welcoming us.
