Photoshoot with John Steel Photography

Earlier this month the HD8 Network organised a photoshoot with the amazing John Steel Photography, inviting members and other organisations that are involved with the HD8 Network or who ‘Work’ in the HD8 area to come along and have their picture taken.

We used John Steel Photography in 2015 when we built our website, however recently, when designing a pop-up banner for the She Means Business Instagram Workshop that we hosted in June – delivered by Social Progress – we noticed that some of the images were out of date; One business has recently retired and closed their company, another has relocated to Sheffield and others had pursued different avenues in their careers.

So we realised that we needed new images that were representative of the people who currently Work, Rest or Play in the area.

To provide continuity from the previous photoshoot and existing catalogue of images, we asked our ‘models’ to bring props that illustrated their business.  For some this was incredibly easy – for example the Roofer and the Marquee Hire Company – however the services, particularly the online services, were much harder and required much more creative, out of the box thinking, but we got there.  Can you can guess correctly what they do …?

HD8 Network Photoshoot 2019 John Steel PhotographyWe also asked our models to bring their amazing smiles and told them this was a fun shoot, with lots of energy and not your typical ‘professional’ corporate headshot.

The morning was VERY busy, with some people just being able to pop in, squeezing it into their busy working day and others staying for longer and using the time to network and build relationships with the other people that came along.  Jo Cove from ‘Made in Clayton West‘, a local community organisation, said the atmosphere was buzzing and that there was a great bunch of people.

Member and regular attendee of our monthly Meetup networking events, Paul Campbell from the Effective Group, was kind enough to let us the use their new offices at Westleigh House in Denby Dale for our studio.  This was the perfect venue and we thank them enormously.

We are very grateful to everyone involved who came along and made the day super special and more importantly for creating such fantastic images.

However, of course we give all our thanks to the very talented John Steel, who used his own unique personality and banter to get the best out of the models and produce the most amazing photos.  Thank you.

We will be using these photos in our future promotions and literature, so keep a look out for this.  We had so much fun organising and arranging the day, and have a long list of people that would have loved to have been involved but weren’t able to, that we would like to do another soon.

The people and businesses featured, in no particular order, include –

#SheMeansBusiness Instagram Workshop

She Means Business Instagram training workshopThe HD8 Network were very honoured last month to host the #SheMeansBusiness Instagram training workshop, delivered by the amazing Esther Orridge from Social Progress.

SheMeansBusiness June 2019Local businesses, specifically startups and those adopting social media for the first time for business use were invited to attend and be shown the powers of Instagram and how it could be used for business purposes.

Esther delivered the presentation with her bubbly personality and extensive expertise and knowledge, and all the attendees agreed that it had been a very informative and useful event.

We were certainly inspired and found ourselves with renewed enthusiasm for this promotional publishing tool, prompting several images to be shared in the following days.  We hope to build on this and adopt it as a tool to engage with and find followers, furthering our communication channels.

The key takeaway point for us was that businesses should have a business profile as opposed to an individual account – which is very easy to do.

The training workshop was held at The Venue in Storthes Hall Park – where we hold our monthly Meetup networking events – and everyone agreed that it is the perfect venue for this and many other types of events – it’s even a great place to go for a coffee, something to eat or maybe something a bit stronger with family and friends.  Storthes Hall feels like a hidden gem, as if you are in the middle of nowhere, although you are no more than 15 minutes from Huddersfield Town Centre or the M1 (depending which way you drive).

6th Anniversary Meetup

This year we are celebrating 6 years of the HD8 Network.

Conceived and brought to life in the spring-summer 2013.

One of the first things we did was create a social media community and the response was they wanted to meet up.  So we created our Meetups.

Following this we brought you the website, business shows and membership packages and what we have been consistent with is our social communities and our physical meetups.

Earlier this year Jacqui Gedman – Chief Executive of Kirklees Council – kindly offered to be our speaker at one of our Meetups.

We jumped at the chance and thought it would be ideal to do this on our 6th Anniversary of HD8 Network Meetups this year in July.

 

Jacqui will be discussing “How the Council supports businesses”

Tickets will be on sale as usual.  Whilst we intend on holding our Speed Networking sessions this will depend on the number of attendees.  We also want to acknowledge and celebrate this 6 year milestone and so will try to measure the attendee interest and act accordingly.

 

Book your tickets now on Eventbrite – HD8networkMmmmm-July.Eventbrite.co.uk

 

Meet our Members

The HD8 Network is more than just our networking events, however ….

The HD8 Network Meetups are really wonderful and you should come along to see for yourself.

We have a laugh, but also have organised time for attendees to speak with at least half the people in the room.

But most of all, we provide a comfortable fun two hours aimed at helping your business in the HD8 area.

Building relationships with other business owners can provide a range of benefits; peer learning, creating accountability, sharpening your business acumen.  It’s not JUST about growing your business contacts – but that’s pretty great fun too.

 

HD8 Network Meetups

The HD8 Network is more than just our networking events.  (But these are really wonderful and you really should come)  

At our Meetups we have a laugh, but also have organised time for attendees to speak with at least half the people in the room in a speed networking style.

As many of the attendees come regularly, this is more of a monthly catch up than elevator pitch, but it is good practise to bring business cards or leaflets with contact details to act as a reminder for people who has met you.  Some people also bring demonstrations or other portfolios, however its about what suits you best.

We generally have a speaker, aimed at educating you on aspects of business, as well as providing heightened exposure to a member’s business, whilst not being a sales pitch.

Building relationships with other business owners brings so many benefits, including peer learning, creating accountability, sharpening your business acumen, as well as growing your business contacts.

You might be looking for services and trades for home or work life, or want to promote your organisation and sell stuff.

We have many charities who come along and can tell you how you can support the organisations that help to provide much needed services to the community and the exposure they can give you in return.

The HD8 Network Meetups has a range of B2B businesses, as well as B2C and MLM in attendance.  The majority of attendees are made up of sole traders or one-man-bands, however we also have employees, as well as business owners attending and our Meetups attract all ranges of businesses at varying times of the year. You just never know who is going to book on (or even turn up) – that’s the ‘fun’ of running and ‘planning’ events.

 

Will we see you next time?

Most of all the HD8 Network Meetups are a comfortable, fun two hours, aimed at helping your business and the HD8 area of Huddersfield.

Join us for our 6th Anniversary event with Jacqui Gedman from Kirklees Council

Sponsor a networking event

Over the years the HD8 Network has brought you a range of speakers; experts in their fields and local businesses, providing insights and overviews, inspiring and informing attendees to help them become better businesses.

In November we were honoured to have Revell Ward sponsor a lunch following our event.  We believe it was in gratitude for the event, as Jenifer has attended off and on over the years and supports our aim.

It was nice to see lots of new faces, and everyone seemed to have a jolly good time, we hope to see them again in the future.

 

We have introduced a ‘bring a guest and get a credit at your next event’ promotion, which is encouraging members to invite new faces and this is having a positive impact on the numbers of attendees and conversations had each month.

We have also introduced a Contribution Slip, for attendees to help us record the impact that we are making in the local area as a result of our events and network.

 

If your organisation would like to sponsor one of networking events and provide lunch following one of our mid morning mid month meetup networking events, then please get in touch.

our Top 5 things blog

If I had a top 5 top thing, to celebrate our 5th anniversary, I would have to pick my favourite surprise organisations …

Number one – Boom, it has to be Think Forensics.

Wow what a business.  What a concept.  What an amazing woman behind it.

Number two – The Pigs in the Woods.

I must confess I have never visited or made contact, however I LOVE driving past it.  Perhaps a bit dangerous trying to point out the pigs to the kid while driving …. But makes my heart sing a bit.

Number three – Shepley Spring Festival.

I have stolen the description “a mini Glastonbury”.  I mentioned above, an amazing woman, but this Festival is also a credit to the amazing team work that can pull off an international 3-day music festival year on year, despite council and other funding cuts and other obstacles – including the weather in some years!!

Number four – There are so many that I could choose from it is so hard to single out, but I would have to pick the community amenities –

  1. The community libraries seem to have been a great success and popular and have been an impressive response to “the cuts”.
  2. Emley Community Centre, Football Club and Wentworth rooms was a delight the other year and is an impressive community area with so much potential. However, there are also many other sports and recreation clubs across the HD8 area it seems so harsh to single any out.
  3. Cliffe House is an adventure I know will continue to grow for me. I love the history of it – my MiL (Mother in Law) has stayed here … sorry that’s misleading, she’s not that old – she went on here school trip …. My little one isn’t just old enough for the adventure play equipment, but I can’t wait to give it a try.  I did a stewarding session at Shepley Spring Festival the other year and the acoustics in the stables, I kept being told, where amazing!
  4. Scissett Baths – This has been my second office over the last year … not necessarily working, instead working out. It is great facility, but hard work to get to grips with timetables and the classes are so popular, it’s tricky to book.  You must be dedicated, but the facilities are amazing (not forgetting the history) – and it’s one of the longest pools in Kirklees …
  5. Now I am torn between the great facilities for kids or just plummeting for Springfield Mills; especially after Jelly Beans and the transformation she has made (along with support from the other units) …. Leapfrogs too has recently gone through an amazing transformation, as has Kirklees Light Railways – have you been to their outside park in Clayton West recently? And of course, there are the other amazingly run community playgroups, stay and plays, etc, without forgetting the little parks dotted everywhere … However, Spingfield Mills, essentially should be your retail dream … a perfect way to spend your time …. The variety of shops/units in there, the service that is provided (most of the time) the quality and variety that is available, however ….

Number five – I have run out of numbers! Can I lump together in one all the other amazing organisations in the area?

  1. The back-bedroom businesses
  2. The (wo)man with a van services that keep our house, gardens, family and all other sorts of elements in our lives and business in working order
  3. The shops, beauticians, restaurants and entertainment activities, as well as events
  4. The employers, the national and international companies, the manufacturers, fabricators, engineers, ecommerce …
  5. The non-profit organisations that organise our social lives

Wow, I never thought it was going to be so hard to leave out so much.  My mind is racing with the number of organisations and people that I haven’t mentioned, however I mean no offence when I do so.

Can you do better?  What are your top 5?

It doesn’t have to be so far reaching as mine #coverallangels #anglesaswell

Post on our social media, email your articles to info@HD8network.co.uk or just generally tell people what is great and what is happening in the area.

5th anniversary celebration event

This year to mark our 5th anniversary we are holding a celebration at the Dunkirk Inn on 18th July from 7pm.

We have been receiving donations for raffle prizes – so if you are a business and want to donate something in return for coverage and promotion please get in touch.

If you would like raffle tickets but cannot attend the event, please see –

  • the Eventbrite page and buy a ticket *link
  • me in person
  • or one of the volunteered contacts in your community … details coming soon –
    • if you want to be one of those – you could be a ‘mum’ at school or ‘dad’ at sports drop off (sorry to be gender specific) an organiser or participator of a community group, popular, prominent figure etc – and want to help out, please get in touch.

We’d love it if you would be able to attend and have a drink with us at the Dunkirk and have a summer socialable evening (weather permitting on their roof terrace).

It is to celebrate the area and hopefully raise a toast to the HD8 Network and our 5th anniversary.

We look forward to seeing you there.

We love The Venue

OMG it was amazing!

Wow wow wow! We fell in love with the Venue last year but couldn’t find mutually agreeable dates.  However …..

Our first meeting at The Venue yesterday was amazing!

All the attendees said how easy it was to get to, how much free parking was available and what a wonderful setting it was; both the leafy peaceful grounds that is just 10 minutes from Town or from the far reaches of HD8 area, as well as the multipurpose modern and clean facilities.

One of our regular and loyal attendees said, “That is was the MOST useful meeting I have been to in the past 4 years” (just to clarify, she wasn’t saying the others hadn’t been … she wouldn’t come almost every month if that was the case!).

So, what are you waiting for?  Put the future dates in your diary and get your tickets booked!

It’s the Venue for HD8 Network Mid Month Meetups

We have a new venue for our informal and friendly business networking events, which are focused on making and building relationships in the local area.

The next Mid Month Meetup event, on 13th March 2018 between 12 and 2pm, will be at The Venue within Storthes Hall Park, with our usual speed networking sessions and a welcome talk from The Venue.

Book your tickets now – www.HD8NetworkMMM-March.Eventbrite.co.uk

The Venue at Storthes Hall is the new venue for the HD8 Network Mid Month Meet Up

The Venue at Storthes Hall Park underwent a major refurbishment project 18 month back costing 3/4million pounds.

The Venue dominates a large standalone building over two floors, comprising of a bar, cinema, eGaming room, large function area and two smaller activity areas with table tennis and pool available, and that’s only downstairs!

Essentially a student café bar, the Venue provides areas upstairs where computers and meeting rooms can be used, for studies as well as being rented out to the business community.

The Venue is also used by many dog walkers and people exploring the vast area covered within the park.

The Venue at Storthes Hall is the new venue for the HD8 Network Mid Month Meet UpThere is plenty of parking and you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, however you are no more than 15 minutes out of town or from the other far reaching areas of the HD8 postcode. It is one of the many hidden jewels of the area which the HD8 Network strive to reveal.

The buildings that greet you as you drive into the park, before you reach the Venue, is the accommodation for the Huddersfield University students and along a long roadway opposite the Venue, lives Shelley Football fields and Stafflex Arena.

The Venue has also been used by the team at AD:VENTURE to deliver some of their business growth workshop sessions.

Discussions had taken place between the Venue and HD8 Network last year, however diaries were clashing, and a consistent pattern of dates could not be agreed. Around the same time the Coffee Loft became available and have perfectly suited the Meetup since. However, having the room to grow has become a key objective for the HD8 Network’s future. Merewyn says “The Coffee Loft have been so accommodating and the Christmas Tapas lunch we had was divine. It will be a shame not to have the excuse to visit regularly, however it will drive us to support them in a variety of different ways, enabling others to receive their warmth of greeting and service.”

The proven format will remain the same for the Mid Month Meetups

The Venue at Storthes Hall is the new venue for the HD8 Network Mid Month Meet Up

Businesses will be paired off for the Speed Networking sessions, each having 5-6 minutes to introduce their business and let others know about their advancements and offers. This structured approach brings energy to the room and helps you identify quickly whether you want to follow up the conversation at another time.

Everyone gets to have conversations with at least half of the people in the room – on occasion this can go into extra time, but the organiser refers to it as ‘Carnage’.

Pairs are managed by a timekeeper ringing a bell to indicate the halfway point – where most people swap talkers – and a whistle signally for the ‘mover’ to rotate to their next candidate.

This type of networking gets you engaged without having to stand up and perfect, or not, your public speaking skills.

The HD8 Network also bring interesting and useful speakers to the Mid Month Meetup networking event, which also allows members the opportunity to provide a ten-minute overview of their business. This month it seems fitting that the spotlight will be on Storthes Hall Park and the Venue.

Before the Mid Month Meetup delegates are invited to a peer to peer workshop, to help them discover the news stories they want to tell people about. Merewyn says, “Our workshops explaining the membership and ways people could use our offering were well received, showing a desire to learn more. And there seems to be a real buzz at the moment about peer to peer support with many success stories evolving from this experience. The HD8 Network are focused on creating a culture of collaboration and peer support. It’s about supporting the local economy and making where we work, rest and play a better place … even more than it is now, which is already amazing.”

“There are many people who live in the area and commute far for work, and many that live far away however commute here for work. One of the visions for the HD8 Network is to challenge that balance and reduce travel time and congestion, freeing up more time for rest and play, inviting more visitors to the area and supporting the wonderful leisure, retail and food organisations here”.

The HD8 Network online events calendar and social media communities, as well as the e-newsletter, news blogs and business directory make this all possible.

For most, it is free at the point of service, however for businesses wanting to reach more people and develop their profile there is a small charge to help cover running costs and develop the platform into something that delivers the service that makes your life more fun, easier and local.
