Have you booked on to our excellent Beaujolais Day Event in Cardiff yet?

beaujolais high res

Come and join us for our Beaujolais Day Event in Cardiff for 2016!

We are inviting you to join us for one of Cardiff’s largest celebrations for Beaujolais Day! Held on Thursday, 17th November from 12pm, we will be back at the Madeira Restaurant, Cardiff. This will be our eighth celebration, so it’s going to be a great event!

About Beaujolais Day

Beaujolais Nouveau has always been celebrated, but only locally. The wine is a celebration of the first of the season. The wine is a fresh and fruity fermentation process that ends with a tasty, clean wine. Obviously, due to the speed of production, the wine isn’t the best quality but is celebrated all the same.

In the 1970’s, a fantastic marketing strategy was introduced where it became a race to see who could get the first bottles to Paris – this attracted massive media attention and so the popularity of Beaujolais Day grew to the 4 corners of the world. Today, it’s a race to get the first bottles to different markets around the globe.

By the time Beaujolais Day is drawing to a close, it is thought that over 65 million bottles of wine, nearly half of the region’s total annual production, will be distributed and drunk around the globe. That’s a lot of red wine!

Last year’s Beaujolais Day event was packed to the rafters and besides the obvious networking opportunities, it’s a terrific social event to be a part of! You wll enjoy a champagne reception, an authentic 2 course meal with half a bottle of Beaujolais wine, well it is a celebration after all! The party will then continue over at the Chapel 1877 Bar, Cardiff from 5pm.

Master Networking Book

Tracey – The Author

Introbiz’s own Tracey Smolinski has now become an author and her book is available to buy now.

About Tracey and her Master Networking Book

Tracey was born and raised in Cardiff, where she grew up in a local public house. Tracey Front Cover
She spent her childhood surrounded by people, which contributed greatly to her love of people and talking to them.

Moving away from the pub, Tracey found her forte in sales and worked at many local media organisations, selling advertising. One day, her superior at the time decided to send Tracey business networking to find more business. She didn’t really understand what networking was all about but went along anyway.

After three months of weekly networking, Tracey still hadn’t secured any sales and felt that it was a complete waste of time and effort. After asking for honest feedback and taking some very sound advice, Tracey decided to give networking another go, from a different angle. She went on to sell £100,000 worth of advertising space in the next six months.

The idea of Introbiz was born back in 2008 when Tracey realised that there was no distinguishable networking company in South Wales and so she decided to go it alone. In January 2009, Introbiz was born and with over 300 members from a wide range of industries and sectors, it’s Wales’ largest professional business network.

Demands for Tracey to share her knowledge and experience have grown significantly, which is why she decided to write a book to help anyone who’d like any advice when it comes to business networking. In her book Tracey also discusses the trials she’s faced as a business owner and how her own experiences have shaped the businesswoman that she is today. Master Networking: 10 Steps to Building Business Relationships for Profit and Success, explores her tried and tested methods for effective networking.

What are your networking challenges? What do you find difficult when attending networking events? sign up to the newsletter at the bottom of this page (on the Introbiz Website) and Tracey will be happy to help you.

How to order your copy of the Master Networking Book

You can order your copy of the Master Networking book by calling the Introbiz office on 02920 291002 , emailing or by visiting Amazon to order a paperback or a kindle version of Master Networking, online.

Master Networking Book Launch

Tracey will be launching her Master Networking Book on the 20th of September at the Pre Business Expo Event they are doing to help prepare members and exhibitors or to their business expo in November.
