Exclusively Thames Valley (ETV) hosted its first member’s meeting and networking event at Lillibrooke Manor, 10th November 2016. Conveniently located just off the A404 near Maidenhead between the M40 and M4 motorways, Lillibrooke Manor is just one of Exclusively Thames Valley’s hidden gems. Positively sparkling for the occasion, the venue offered a beautifully decorated barn for the networking event.
Attended by other Exclusively Thames Valley members, Cliveden House, CIM Moor Hall, Missenden Abbey, Copthorne Hotel Slough Windsor, Grovefield House, Fringilla Boat Services and The Olde Bell, members first met to discuss forthcoming collaborative events with ETV and then show-cased their venues and services to event buyers such as Ferring Pharmaceuticals, Forcepoint, Abbvie, Diabetes UK, Zogenix, Centrica, Boeringher-Ingleheim and Farmglade to name just a few.
Exclusively Thames Valley’s Director, presented its unique web resource and venue-sourcing capabilities to the audience, followed by an inspiring presentation on ‘Personal Presence” by Sylvia Baldock, Professional Speaker, Trainer and International Business & Personal Coach.
