Face To Face

14 June, 2024

I used to dread networking events when I was younger. Never say never, but the chance of seeing me at a prescribed ‘networking event’ even to this day is slim to none. But drinks and tapas at the lovely new Bar Lento in Winchestercourtesy of Arabella Turner of K J Smith Solicitors, and I’m on the train with Mark Dolby, even if the summer weather didn’t do the courtesy of RSVP’ing.

You simply can not beat chatting face to face with, dare I say it, a little bit of alcohol thrown in to loosen everyone up a bit. You get to have real chats with real people about real things, cutting through the crap of curated social media posts and working out if and how you can (and want to) work together.

You learn that Barristers face the same staff issues as companies across the board, despite your preconceptions. You start hearing people’s stories, learning stuff that could connect you on a level much deeper than work chats ever could alone.

You may even end up buying a book you would never have discovered otherwise. So rain, rain you can stay another day or two, I’m hibernating and delving into Slouching Toward Bethlehem.
