Oct 3 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Want to expand your network and learn something useful? Bored of the same kind of networking events? Aged 18-40? Then you’re in the right place!

Link Up is a relaxed and fun networking event for people aged from 18 – 40. We know your time is precious, so there is a purpose to each event meaning you’re going to benefit from coming along. Our bi-monthly events will take different formats, include ‘My Story’ sessions where we hear from a local leader about their journey, our ‘Crash Course’ sessions where we impart key knowledge of a subject to you in half an hour, or our ‘Social Network’ sessions where the aim is to get to know each other better.

Each meeting with have food and drink supplied so you can come straight from the office.

This time, we have a ‘My Story’ session from Clair Gelder from Wool Couture.

Claire Gelder used her love and passion of working with wool to found her business Wool Couture in 2015, aiming to inspire others to take up the centuries-old pastimes of macrame, knitting, weaving and crochet by giving the hobbies a twenty-first-century makeover.

Using metre-long knitting needles and giant balls of yarn, Claire has built her successful business by helping others to master the crafts through her unique range of bespoke products and DIY kits ranging from sensational scarves to beautiful blankets, attracting a dedicated army of followers.

Following a successful appearance on Dragons Den, Claire and Wool Couture has gone from Strength to Strength. The business now sells in John Lewis stores around the UK, and exports to markets all over the world with new products and territories being added on a regular basis.

So book your tickets now to Link Up and we look forward to seeing you October 3rd at 17:30.

Link Up is a joint event being run by Enterprising Barnsley and JCI Barnsley.
