Walking the walk.
Talking the talk.

Until 2021 Chin Waggers will move on-line. Feel free to walk around your garden, office, bedroom etc for now!

Networking events as we know them have changed and the business landscape is shifting. There’s something about going for a walk that gets the brain working, the ideas sparking, and the conversation flowing on a whole new level.

Which is why we’ve created Chin Waggers. Socially distanced, carefully chosen walks where you can network safely with your pooch or without.

A relaxed atmosphere of like minded business people who are ready for their next challenge.

A new way to combine business with pleasure

Even though Chin Waggers has had to move on-line please still wear your coat and wellies or pyjamas if you feel like it and bring your dog (other pets are available). Stand in the garden if you want, be yourself…it’s business but not as we care to know it. We want our events to be ‘something different’ relaxed and enjoyable, a chat and a catch up with other Chin Waggers and if there’s business to be had…well that’s beautiful.

The focus of this unique networking event is a pleasant, stroll around some beautiful, carefully chosen locations. After our walk, we gather for a cuppa, breakfast or lunch (to which dogs are, of course, also warmly invited).

It’s a chance to chat and make new face to face connections

Network in a relaxed way, away from your desk

And best of all, you can bring the dog…or not!

Latest walk and talk

Every Chin Waggers event features a keynote speaker, plus plenty of time to continue your conversations. So put on your boots, call your dog (or borrow one) and join us at Chin Waggers – the networking event for people who don’t just talk the talk.
