Ware To Do Business Quiz Night

 

Thanks to everyone who joined us on Wednesday May 27 for the Ware To Do Business Charity Quiz Night, held in memory of Dean Mason.

Five teams took part with people joining us from across the country. The event was held to celebrate the memory of one of our founders, Dean Mason, who sadly passed away recently after contracting the coronavirus.

Ware To Do Business is a not-for-profit, Hertfordshire based networking group and this year we are raising funds for Citizens’ Advice — a cause close to Dean’s heart.

We raised £135 on the night – well done everyone!

Hertfordshire networking

Ware To Do Business, the friendliest Hertfordshire business networking group, held its first virtual meeting on Wednesday April 8.

Despite a few last-minute apologies for absence, 11 attendees joined in from as far afield as Hampshire and Glasgow. The format on Zoom worked well and we discussed the current business climate and the challenges facing us all.

Regrettably, we heard the sad news that W2DB founder and friend Dean Mason had passed away the previous week after contracting the coronavirus. He was a lovely man and was taken far too soon.

Unless circumstances change, we will hold our next virtual meeting on Wednesday May 13, 9am-10am. In the meantime, stay safe and we hope to see you soon!

Ware To Do Business, the friendliest Hertfordshire business networking group, met on March 11 to learn about the ‘Secrets of Sleep’ from Abi Anson of Anson Cognitive Hypnotherapy.

From a good night’s rest to an afternoon nap, Abi gave an engaging and informative talk on all aspects of sleep, exploring the myths and scientific facts. As always, there was plenty of opportunity to chat and network over breakfast at The Feathers Inn, a charming village pub in Wadesmill, just outside Ware, Hertfordshire.
