Keen walker and networker Brendan Johnstone combines these two loves by getting business people out on the streets talking to each other on the way.
Now you can join Brendan on the fourth Netwalking event of 2018 on 4 October and go exploring from George Street to Leith. This is downhill all the way, ensuring that even those of you who don’t do the daily 10,000 steps that he does, will be able to keep up with him.
Brendan Johnstone, walk leader and Chamber of Commerce Partner in Enterprise said: “NetWalking is a great way to make new business contacts and it’s a very relaxed atmosphere compared to many networking events. It’s not just about doing business. It’s about developing and growing your own business by talking to others about how they’ve developed theirs.”
The format allows for plenty of time to chat and the small group of up to 12 people means there is time to talk to in quite some depth.
We all know about the health benefits of walking, not only burning a few calories but it’s great for your mental health too.
The walks are now in their second year and cover most of Edinburgh. Netwalkers have strolled up to the Castle, across Holyrood Park, the Royal Mile and down to the New Town.
This month’s walk will process from George Street to Stockbridge before following the Water of Leith all the way to the Shore in Leith. There will then be time to chat some more over refreshments in the Malmaison Hotel.
There is a “Petwalking” event once a year with Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home.
The event will begin on 4 October 2018 at 17:30 at the Edinburgh Chamber office on George Street, before departing on our walk at 17:45. The event finishes at Malmaison around 19.30.
