This morning I had the opportunity to meet with fellow Northern Irish bloggers and influencers at the Permit Rooms Belfast for great good and even better company.
In Northern Ireland there has been a real void in terms of networking events for individuals like myself. We see on instagram daily bloggers across the UK mainland, in particularly London supporting each other and meeting up for social occasions, sharing stories and helping each other fulfil their goals and ambitions. I have regularly noticed this and felt envious of this support network, which we have lacked in NI – that was until today.
The lovely Cathy Martin (CMPR) had noticed this also and decided to use her influence to bring individuals together to network, learn from each other and hopefully build friendships. Cathy launched the NI Bloggers Brunch this morning to fill this void and bring together groups of individuals with similar goals and interests. Having never been to an event like this, I didn’t really know what to expect and to be honest I did feel pretty nervous. The nerves however, didn’t last long, as everyone was so welcoming and the atmosphere was so inviting that I felt I knew everyone simply at ‘hello’.
