Business networking events can be a fantastic addition to your marketing plan, but only if they work and align with your values. Wanado Networking is designed to offer the most value to members who are committed to attending on a weekly basis. Consistent attendance allows for regular engagement, establishing trust and fostering meaningful connections every week. If you are unable to commit to regular attendance, there may be other business networking opportunities that align better with your availability and requirements.

Your monthly membership fee covers the cost of unlimited teas and coffees every week, along with the necessary costs associated with the operations required to effectively promote your business on our website, business directory and social media channels. Funds also go towards your social events and activities, along with occasional prizes and charitable donations. We’re always transparent with these costs and keep you informed about any planned expenditure outside of our typical operations.
