Moxie Mingle at The Colony

Last week, Moxie visited the incredible new Colony event and business space development, conveniently located on Altrincham Road, just on the outskirts of Wilmslow. The Colony is a sympathetic, yet contemporary, addition to the rolling Cheshire countryside and that setting makes it a perfect location for this unique combination of luxurious offices and professional business space.

Moxie mingled within the high-end HQ private business members club, located within this innovative development. The club delivers the best in technology and business facilities here in sophisticated surroundings, as well as discreet areas in which to work and welcome clients. Co-owner Adel Lababedi welcomed a record-breaking 59 Moxie Minglers, who, it’s fair to say, were blown away by both the ground-breaking space and the idyllic, pastoral location. We were also joined by Spencer Neal, whose talented team at Atelier Joinery are responsible for much of the impressive finish at the Colony.

Adel and team looked after us well, with some delicious canapes for brunch and, considering the sheer numbers present, Wendy’s introductions were as skilfully handled as ever. Really, we would all have loved to stay another hour or so to enjoy the experience of the Colony AND talk to more people…

I’d just like to thank you all for visiting The Colony on Wednesday, it was a real pleasure to host such a fantastic event; Wendy was amazing (I can’t remember my two daughters names most of the time, never mind all 50+ of you!).

Wendy’s event has already produced some very interesting connections and I look forward to meeting more “Minglers” to explore potential business ideas, associations etc. etc., so please do not hesitate to contact us at The Colony HQ Members Club which was designed and created to provide the perfect location and platform for business people and entrepreneurs to meet and (dare I use the word again)..…”Mingle”

It was a huge pleasure to meet you all at Moxi Mingle on Tuesday. A big well done to Wendy for securing a fantastic venue with so many varied and interesting people to network with, it was a refreshing change from others I have attended in the past.

Getting kissed first as the frog in the room wasn’t my finest hour, however, I thank you, Wendy, for turning me into a prince!

I would also like to echo the thoughts of everyone at Moxie on Wednesday.  It was my very first Moxie and I’m wondering why it took me so long to finally get around to it.  A fantastic bunch of warm and welcoming people in a relaxed and informal environment. Wendy, you certainly have created a great concept in networking. I can’t believe I didn’t know about how fabulous The Colony is and I haven’t stopped talking about the place since visiting on Wednesday.  I’ll be back!

Hope to meet you all again in the near future, I’m hooked.

Fortunately, there isn’t long to wait for the next Moxie and you’re in for another treat. Staying local in Bramhall this time, we’re off the Keller Kitchens for a Fizz Masterclass and a Moxie Mingle with added sparkle! You can expect delicious nibbles, great company and fantastic networking, Moxie style as always but with the added bonus of learning a little more about (and tasting) Cava, Prosecco and Champagne…

As always, events can be booked via Eventbrite or just drop me an email to confirm your attendance.
