Networking Masterclass with Mark Herring, Urbano's Founder & Connector-In-Chief.

Ahead of Urbano's Networking Evening for members, Mark will be hosting his quarterly Networking Masterclass. This event is open to Members & Non-Members and takes place in the afternoon before the Urbano Members Networking Evening at Bounce Farringdon. Non-Members get a place at the evening event too so you can put what you learn into practice.

The masterclass takes everyone - from nervous first-timer to experienced serial networkers -  through what he believes to be the best approach to modern networking, from opening conversations to making networking a productive part of your company's marketing strategy.

Then we get to network over drinks.

Maximum bookings per company is two people. Maximum for the event is 12.

Most companies look to networking to provide new business streams but don't offer themselves or their management and staff any advice on how to deliver,

Mark has organised over 2,000 networking events and connected  thousands of companies. His Masterclass uses this experience and years analysing the pathways of networking to turn your event encounters into tangible business results.

This three-hour Networking Masterclass is fast-paced, relaxed and interactive, interspersed with advice, tips, and discussions to find approaches that work, regardless of your role, experience, company or sector.

**Please note booking this event gives every attendee an automatic free place at the Urbano networking evening at Bounce Farringdon that follows the masterclass to put the theory into practice in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. **


Mark Herring, CEO & Founder of Urbano Network, has spent over 18 years at the forefront of event-based and online business networking in London, helping individuals and companies to make the most of the opportunities that networking offers. He is a specialist on how to help companies and organisations build business communities around their brand or in their areas and sectors.

His approach to networking blends branding, marketing, and his  experience and observations after hosting over 2,000 events. You will leave with a networking approach that any person can use from choosing events to finding lasting value in every contact you make.


"I'm a fairly hard taskmaster, so don't give out too many 'Excellents' lightly on surveys, but I took a lot from the session and enjoyed the relaxed nature of the presentation. It was the first time I had attended such an event feeling focussed and fully committed to networking becoming an increasingly bigger part of my role within the company. It has encouraged me to embrace the role with a bit less cynicism. A very worthwhile event."

"Networking is what I've done in every job I've worked in, but all those years of actively doing them have been useless. Finally, Mark has shown me how every person who wants to grow their business should all look at networking with far more importance and effort. Becoming members of Urbano was a fresh lease of life for us, its opened our eyes to enormous and what seems to be endless opportunities! Thank you Mark and team!"

"I have been using a few of the techniques from the class to hone my skills. I am more comfortable in approaching groups now, and I hope I now send relevant & specific follow up to contacts I have made. I have also slightly altered the way I introduce myself and the firm, initially leaning towards describing the jobs I enjoy being involved with and my skill set. I feel possibly in trying to encompass all that my company does in two sentences was not specific or memorable enough. Let’s just say the course got my brain thinking!"
