"Mark Reid is an outstanding guide, a genial host and clearly a first class networker. Netwalking is a superb opportunity to walk in amazing countryside while being able to share ideas with others, make new contacts and open the doors to new business. I urge anyone who wants to explore a friendly and invigorating mix of business with fresh air to get booked on to Mark’s Netwalking experience, it may well become the most profitable walk you’ll ever make."
- Rick Armstrong, Mentor-UK
NetWalking is a unique networking concept that provides uninterrupted ´talk time´ with like-minded business people whilst surrounded by inspirational landscapes.
There are so set agendas, no networking 'rules' - just a great walk in beautiful countryside that allows you time to think, reflect, chat, bounce ideas and develop business relationaships.
NetWalking allows you time to spend working ON your business, not IN your business.
WHY COMBINE NETWORKING AND HILL-WALKING?
The natural landscape is a very powerful business tool. The open hills engender a sense of space and freedom that has a unique power to soothe, inspire and refresh.
Hill-walking has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety, improve self-esteem and boost self-confidence. It is a multi-sensory and stimulating experience that clears your mind and allows escapism from the stresses of everyday life.
WHERE AND WHEN
Each NetWalk costs JUST £25 per person for an individual NetWalk.
Our NetWalks take place at various beautiful locations throughout Yorkshire, including the Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors, South Pennines and Yorkshire Wolds.
We walk on a weekday morning in Spring (March), Summer (June), Autumn (September) & Winter (December).
We meet at 9:30am at a great country pub for tea/coffee, set off in our walk at 10am and return to the pub for lunch at 1pm.

Mark Reid is a very experienced professional outdoor guide and has lots of experience dealing with all ages and abilities. He has taken out over 6,500 people walking in the countryside, and always makes sure that the walks are within everyone's capabilities. However, a basic level of fitness is required as the natural environment can be demanding at times.
MARK REID - YOUR NETWALKING GUIDE
Your NetWalking guide is Mark Reid, a fully qualified and insured Mountain Leader. Mark is a member of the British Mountaineering Council and Mountain Training Association.
Mark graduated from Lancaster University with a BA (Hons) in Geography in 1990 and then worked for various breweries as an Area Manager until the publication of his first book in 1997 (The Inn Way... to the Yorkshire Dales), an event that inspired him to give up his job to concentrate on writing his 'Inn Way' books. Mark has since written 17 successful walking guidebooks including 'The Inn Way' and 'Walking Weekends' series, three of which have been picked out as the 'Travel Book of the Week' in the Sunday Times, Guardian and Mail on Sunday.
Since 1997, Mark has walked over 16,500 miles of footpaths; since 2007 he has taken over 6,500 people walking in the countryside.
Mark is passionate about walking, country pubs and the British countryside, and he wants to share his passion with you!
Mark Reid held his first NetWalk in July 2008 in the Yorkshire Dales and, as far as he is aware, this was the first event to combine networking and hill walking.
