Sign-ups for Scotland’s newest business networking club have reached five times the number originally anticipated, with a host of speakers now signed up.

The First Tuesday Club is a curated virtual networking event launched by MHA Henderson Loggie after the firm identified a gap in networking opportunities for business leaders because of the Covid pandemic.

The firm’s managing partner David Smith said: “In one of MHA Henderson Loggie’s recent sector surveys, respondents told us that business development is being hampered by the lack of opportunity to build new relationships when working from home.

“Previously, we all relied on face-to-face meetings or events to make new contacts and build rapport, but now it seems we can’t get beyond the phone call or video conferences where discussion is focused on work related topics, rather than networking or socialising.

“We floated the idea, among a number of clients and contacts, of a club where we would have interesting speakers, no hard sell and the opportunity to get together and meet new people as you would at a face-to-face event and there was real enthusiasm for it.”

The inaugural event is due to be held tomorrow, 1 September, on the Zoom virtual networking platform with mental health expert Gin Lalli as the speaker.

More than 100 people have so far signed up for The First Tuesday Club which will take place on the first Tuesday of every month at 11am for 45 minutes. The club is for business owners and those in senior management positions.
