So why not start back with a slew of new contacts on your phone.
Wicklow-based Barbara Gordon, who founded business directory Whatswhat.ie, believes the train is the ideal way to meet potential business contacts.
With over 127,000 businesses already registered and 100 registering every week, the company will host a speed networking event on September 13 on a train from Dublin's Connolly Station to Wicklow, and back.
It's a great way to meet people," she said.
"The Price is €69, this includes your return train ticket, your 3 course meal, and a Tour of Wicklow’s Historic Gaol.
The train leaves Connolly Station at 11.40 and arrives back in Connolly Station at 17.30 and you can enjoy sea views as you network, she added.
She is also running a business fair on October 8 at the Red Cow Moran Hotel.
