The Authentic Spark



3-5 Saint Helen’s Square, York, YO1 8QW

York, England, GB, YO1 8QW

The Authentic Spark invites you to the third Connected! by The Authentic Spark event.

Connected! is a relaxed, welcoming social event where you can meet new and different people, discover talents and services you didn’t know you needed, and find connections that will inspire you professionally and personally. 

It sprang from The Authentic Spark’s first birthday party, which brought some of my connections together, along with some of their connections, to spend an evening enjoying good food, and great conversation.

What will we do?

There will be a buffet of wonderful food by Carluccio’s (all dietary requirements can be catered for if informed in advance). We’ll chat, share ideas. If you want to share business cards and network, that’s fine. There’s no structured ‘networking’, no elevator pitch or speeches required. Why not encourage one (or more) of your connections to come too? They might welcome the chance to make new connections too!

After my first birthday party, guests said:

I enjoyed celebrating with you and connecting with some more fantastic people… I left feeling like I’d had a very life affirming evening

What a wonderful, happy, supportive evening in a beautiful setting!

What could we create if we are ‘Connected by The Authentic Spark’? 


What is included in the ticket price?

Entrance fee, food, table water, service charge and VAT are all included in the ticket price. If you want something different to drink you can order from the bar. Please remember to settle up with the restaurant at the end!
