Alea Nottingham has been a member of RSVIP for a number of years and it is by far, our favourite Networking organisation. Over the years we have made many friends and enjoyed many laughs as well as customers and we foresee our membership to continue for many years to come.

Justin Hevness
Firth & Scott
Managing Director

I am really pleased Firth & Scott Insurance Brokers joined RSViP as we have built a good group business friends who we see on a regular basis. There is always an excellent turnout making this one of the leading networking events in Nottingham. It is always nice to see a familiar faces as well as lots of new faces and new companies in the room all there with the purpose of networking and meeting people and introducing their business to you and vice versa. Fiona has a knack of picking great venues and partners to really enhance the whole evening.

Simon Rhodes
Yu Energy
Marketing Manager

We have been members of RSViP for the last year and always find their events to be relaxed, professional and welcoming. The venues they use are all of a really nice and the drinks and canapés always give an air of exclusivity to the events. We have made several new business contacts over the last year – as well as a few friends. I couldn’t recommend RSViP highly enough.

Linda Booth
Nottingham Health & Wellbeing Clinic

“I’ve been  a member of RSViP for approx 8 months now and whilst I’ve not been able to attend all meetings due to work commitments, those I do attend I really enjoy. I tell people that RSVIP is ‘high-end’ networking. I’m too long in the tooth to be messing around in the puddle. I want to be in the big pond with the bigger fish :)”

Colin Butler,
Stirland Paterson
Business Development Manager

“Can I just say that after being a member for a year now that Fiona and all of her staff make you feel at home at every meeting and put you at ease. RSVIP has been great for me meeting new people and businesses and making new friends. I look forward to the last Thursday of each month and by then, ready for a drink and a good chat!! Looking forward to 2015. Thanks to Fiona and her staff- see at the next meeting!!”

Stephen Goddard

“Being a member of RSVIP has put me in touch with so many people I would have otherwise not met. It’s great to meet the decision makers and the events are such a refreshing change from the usual networking meetings that take place.”

Paul Evans

 “I have really enjoyed meeting like minded business people and discussing various topics in lovely social surroundings, plus I have generated about £5000.00 since joining in less than a year!”

Paul Chapman
Marketing Jumpleads

“I have been to a lot of networking events and I can categorically say that RSViP is the best. Not only are the events fun, (which is important and not always the way for some other networking sessions!), but I do gain a significant amount of business that I can track back directly to the people I meet at RSViP’s events – People who it is unlikely I would have met otherwise.”

Richard Hammond
Rothera Dowson

“It is always an absolute pleasure to work with Fiona and her colleagues at RSViP; the networking events are second to none. The gatherings are always well organised at top venues, good fun and attended by people that are likely to turn out to be useful business contacts.”

April Fawcett

“As a Business member of RSViP for over three years, I have always found the events to be informative,well organised, as well as thoroughly enjoyable evenings.”

Holly Smith,

“RSViP organise and run a variety of great networking events and are very well connected in Nottingham’s business community. I have attended a number of RSViP’s events and have always found them to be well organised and well attended by an interesting and useful mix of contacts.”

Kevin Moody
Ryehill Wealth Management

“RSViP is without question in my mind the best networking event to meet new people and get to know the decision makers. The informal approach along with excellent venues allow you to have the right conversations without having to rush which happens at so many other networking events. I have just subscribed for another year’s membership and look forward to meeting more new people and enjoying  the excellent networking evenings Fiona and her team organise so well.”

Dee-Anne Slade

“Response Network Limited have been members of RSVIP for over two years now.  Fiona hosts great, monthly work socials that are always extremely busy and always full of new faces and other like minded business leaders.  We have built up some great relationships and have had some really good referrals building on those relationships.  The RSViP card is also an added bonus, which makes dining out even more pleasurable with the added benefit of the discounts that you get.”

Georgina Phillips
Nottingham Trent University

“Having only just joined as a member of RSViP, we are thrilled with the amount and the quality of contacts that we have made already. It is really nice to network in a relaxed environment and due to them taking place in a different location each time, getting to know more places in Nottingham to go out for food and drink. RSViP truly is the networking heaven for businesses based in and around Nottingham, as it covers a wide range of industries and sectors and with the addition of the Facebook page this allows us to connect with more companies throughout the month. I look forward to the last Thursday of every month!”

“I have very much enjoyed the membership – and I will continue to recommend RSVIP to people as my impression from all the events has always been very positive.”

Emmie Studencki
Nottingham Trent University Business School
Business Services Consultant

“It’s time for our membership to be renewed I believe, Georgina and myself have very much enjoyed the networking group.

We would like to go for a gold membership so we can sponsor another event this year.”

Ann Gott

“I was somewhat sceptical about networking events, and having attended several different ones I found Fiona’s approach both refreshing and different… No need to stand up and give a pitch, no high pressure tactics to join RSVIP.  The people who attend the events are from a diverse range of business backgrounds, but more importantly they are very genuine friendly people.  The relaxed informal atmosphere, coupled with beautiful venues, great canapés and drinks is the perfect environment to acquire both new business opportunities and new friends!  Add that to the benefits of a RSVIP discount card means becoming a member is really a no brainer. “

Rebecca Aldridge
Balance Wealth Planning
Managing Director

“I want to say that I think the events are really great, so well attended and in good venues. I’ve made some great connections and I’m sure I’ll be back sometime soon.”
