Business Networking Events In Cardiff – Introbiz Highlights for 2018

Business Networking In South Wales

Review of the monthly Intelligent Millionaires Network business Networking Event in Cardiff, Wales…

Last week I attended the Intelligent Millionaires Network In Cardiff, run by John Stokoe.

This was a well attended and professional business networking event in Cardiff that had a lot to offer.

In addition to the standard freestyle networking that many business networking events offer, the Intelligent Millionaires Network also offers added value to its members by providing a number of speakers to learn from at their events.

First we learnt about Time Management and completing task and goals…

Then we learnt about thinking big, trading internationally and taking advantage of opportunities!

We then learnt about work life balance, the unlimited powers of self belief and mindfulness from John Christian from who was exceptional.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Networking Event and the continuation of the networking in the bar after the event officially closed. So much so that I met with John the following day and joined. I joined not just for the monthly Cardiff event but to also go networking in London at their London Event from January. There are also 24 other similar events around the world if I fancy any of them.

If anyone wants to join me at the next event in Cardiff on January 8th 2019 or an event in London in January, please let me know?

Top Entrepreneurs of Wales Celebrate winning awards at lavish Introbiz & Introbiz Expo Awards Ceremony…


Posted by Introbiz on 29 November 2018 

The Introbiz Expo 2018 was our biggest yet. Wales’ largest business Expo took another leap and is now the largest business Expo by FAR. This could not have been done without everyone who took part, exhibitors, keynote speakers, visitors, sponsors and volunteers alike. We are over the moon to hear how beneficial everyone found the day, with businesses already following up contacts made and making deals left right and centre! We felt it necessary to recognise those that particularly excelled. So, here’s a massive congratulations to all of our Introbiz Expo Award Winners!


After an incredibly difficult choice, we decided that Zenith Print and Packaging would be the winner of the Best Large Stand. With their all singing, all dancing funfair style stand, they attracted such a large amount of footfall and clearly made the most out of their Expo experience. Giving away free teddies just before Christmas was a stroke of genius, in our opinion.

The winner of Best Medium Stand was 123 Divorce. Their stand stood out because of their insistent use of anything pink, if it wasn’t pink, it wasn’t allowed on the stand! Their theory is, in a time of grey, they will be the colour in your life, helping you through the difficult times brought on by a divorce. This branding really makes them stand out and we believe this deserved an award. (WelshBiz owners MA Consultancy are very happy that our Clients won 👏)!

As a much-loved science discovery centre in Cardiff, it’s a task to demonstrate what Techniquest is all about at a business exhibition in the Motorpoint Arena. Yet they pulled it off with flying colours, by transporting an actual exhibit from their museum. Techniquest wooed visitors with something different, they were able to measure their reaction times by placing their hands onto the exhibit. Nothing like a bit of healthy competition! Therefore, they won Best Small Stand.

We chose Dreams & Wishes charity as our winners of Best Marketing. It was hard to miss them all over social media! This charity is such a worthy cause, granting ill children their dreams and wishes. Their marketing is ‘on point’ and deserves recognition, keep it up Dreams & Wishes!

123 Divorce didn’t just win Best Medium Stand, they also won 2nd Best Marketing! As aforementioned, their pink campaign is hard to miss. They stand out from the crowd and that is what good marketing is all about. Congratulations 123 Divorce!

Check above for their website details! (WelshBiz’s owners MA Consultancy are proud of this award as we have been doing all of their marketing for their launch 🚀 at the expo 😎💪).

In 3rd place for Best Marketing was PIXAFUSION Digital. They are a full-service digital marketing agency, and this really shows in their own marketing. Their advertising before and during the Expo was excellent and we loved it!

After much thought, we decided that Giovanni Malacrino was the worthy winner of Entrepreneur of the Year. He is the Welsh Italian that everyone wants to know and get involved with. His brain for business is impressive and this is evident in the work he has completed this year with Introbiz. We adore his restaurants Giovanni’s Park Place and Giovanni’s The Hayes, and our MDs Paul and Tracey Smolinski really enjoyed trying his Cookery School! His restaurants are very popular with celebrities and he often welcomes the likes of Cliff Richard, Katherine Jenkins, Shirley Bassey and Tom Jones. On top of this, Gio always wants to help people, he has no hidden agenda. He stands out with his charitable work. Keep it up Gio!

Prodec earned this award well and truly. They closed the biggest deal in the network this year. This took place at the end of a journey, which began with Rebecca knocking on our office door, trying to sell her services to us. We returned the favour by telling her what we do, resulting in her signing up to the Introbiz network. Through the network we connected her with the right people, and hence, the 1.5 million-pound deal was done. Congrats Prodec!

Cobalt HR earned the title of the Best Start-Up! We think their efforts deserved recognition as they have really grown throughout the year. Kerry has been so active this year, regularly hosting successful events in the city. Keep up the good work, we love watching your journey!

Mike Armstrong from MA Consultancy won Networker of the Year for good reason. Although every member of Introbiz deserves an award for networking, Mike raised the bar indeed! And now after listening to Grant Cardone’s speech at the Expo, Mike is truly 10X-ing his business and his life. What an inspiration! (WelshBiz’ Owners MA Consultancy run by Mike Armstrong) are very proud of this achievement and would like to publicly thank Introbiz for being awesome, having an awesome network and changing the shape of networking and business expo’s in Wales and around the UK. Keep up the great work 💪👊🔟❌🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿🇬🇧)!

Our competition, ‘The Pitch’, which takes place at the Expo each year, always attracts some incredible talent. Our judges chose The Disabled Reviewers as 2018’s winners. Their pitch is that they review Disability Aids, Cars, Hotels, Airports, Airlines, Hotels Abroad and much more for disabled people. We are so pleased to have them on board as part of our network.

Check out the rest of the gorgeous photographs here!

Everyone involved with the Expo deserves to win an award, it was a fantastic event and we are so grateful so many people found it beneficial. Bring on next year!
