What people say
"Netwalking is a great way of networking without the usual excess of coffee. I find that I usually manage to have a good one-to-one with the other netwalkers, many of whom have now become friends. Gavin has managed to find plenty of interesting walks in the Edinburgh and West Lothian area, and usually arranges for the weather to be fine: plenty of fresh air without being too challenging for anyone. As this is an unusual form of networking it succeeds in attracting people from a range of other networking groups and has allowed me to meet people from outside my "usual patch". Overall: excellent.“
Computer Law Training
"Netwalking is fantastic for 3 things; getting fitter, getting to know business contacts better and getting a bit of space from a sometimes stressful business.
The walks are always enjoyable and interesting, just like the company."
“A perfect way to meet new people and develop business relationships in the peaceful surroundings of the countryside.
Gavin (our Netwalk host who prepares each walk meticulously) takes a real interest in providing interesting do-able walks which are suitable for everyone
I have been a regular attendee - come and join us, they are fun!”
“ I have been on several of the Netwalking Scotland events and every time have had the most enjoyable and exciting time. Scenery is always amazing, company is great and the exercise is usually demanding but manageable.
I would highly recommend this monthly event as a “must add” to calendar.”
“Netwalking is an innovative way to get out of the stuffy office / indoor environment. It allows you to clear out the cobwebs, get you some exercise whilst at the same time networking with potential clients and contacts. This is a great way to break up your day - so dinnae be shy, gie it a try!!”
Thomas Haywood Photography
“Fresh air, a bit of exercise and a great chance to meet new people. Netwalking is such a relaxing and informal way to network and it’s great fun too”
“I have been a member of Gavin's Netwalking group for a year and have found it to be one of the most holistic forms of Networking I've ever tried, combining the outdoors with friendly company, good exercise and the options of taking photographs in fantastic scenery. Netwalking has helped me to get to know my networking colleagues and improve business relationships too. I recommend it and will continue to support this group.”
Jinja Ninja Productions
“Taking part in the Netwalking group has given me the opportunity to network for business, but more importantly, to build relationships with people I would not otherwise have met in a non-business, fun situation.”
The Writing Factory
“Netwalking - what a great idea. Escape from work, enjoy some fresh air, get some exercise and meet some great people. I really enjoy the netwalks. For me, I find that it’s a great way to talk and really get to know my fellow netwalkers. Gavin knows some lovely walks and the chance for a welcome drink at the end makes netwalking a good start to the weekend”.
Massage Specialist & Reflexologist
“Netwalking is a great way to do business for three reasons. A few hours in the company of like minded business people is always time well spent. Doing it in the fresh air whilst building a bit of fitness just adds to the benefits of the concept.
Well done, Gavin, and thanks for continuing the Netwalking events. I'll be there over the coming months!”
“I like spending time with my owner in the countryside and on the walks around town. Fresh air, new smells and other humans, all with a common purpose are all terrific fun. They don't half talk a lot, mostly about business, and seem to get along famously. Perhaps its the interesting walks, the getting fit or maybe just the opportunity to build relationships.
I have a sneaking suspicion it might be the liquid refreshment that invariably waits at the end of their walk, though.”
“What a wonderful way to network, good company, interesting conversations and loads of fresh air. This is a fantastic way to get to know people and I am sure, in time, to do business with them also. A great idea and Gavin is the perfect host.”
“When Gavin started the “Netwalking” group in Edinburgh it immediately struck a chord with many business owners who wanted to combine a bit of gentle exercise on a Friday afternoon with some even more gentle networking. A fantastic and very popular idea and full credit to Gavin for his indefatigable energy in researching the walks in advance. The photographs are great – so have a look”
Activ Web Design
"Gavin’s Netwalking group is a great way to meet other business owners in a friendly and not-too-demanding walk on a Friday afternoon. I’ve seen parts of the countryside I know well and others I barely knew before taking up the opportunity to Netwalk. The atmosphere is friendly and I learn more about potential clients, suppliers and associates than I ever would in a formal business meeting. I recommend Netwalking to anyone thinking of getting out and about while doing business."
"A Netwalk is literally a breath of fresh air after a busy week at work. Gavin goes to great effort to ensure the walks are suitable for all levels of fitness. They're always fully planned out to ensure local interest as well as great walking and scenery as well as a very welcome local pub at the end. A brilliant way to meet and network with others in a fully relaxed setting, explore new places and make new friends and useful contacts."
EnergyWise Health & Fitness
"I absolutely love the concept of netwalking - it is quite literally a breath of fresh air in the field of networking! It's so much fun to get away from my computer and spend time in the beautiful countryside, while also meeting other local business owners who share the same interests. And, quite often, we're chatting so much that I don't even notice the miles adding up! Netwalking has not only been excellent for my physical health, but also for the health of my business too!"
"Netwalking is like playing golf, you get the time to have a proper conversation, but you also meet a lot more people, with diverse social and business interests, in a friendly environment with great scenery, and you don't have to look for lost golf balls!"
