Your opportunity to join #FSBConnect Networking and effectively develop and grow your business through our national network of events

Events are held bi-monthly on the third Tuesday of the month.

£8 including a light buffet supper inclusive VAT, payable on the door.

All welcome so why not get a business associate to book on.

Attendees gather around tables and each will be given two minutes to promote their business and hear others do the same. You will then move to a second table where you can repeat the exercise to a fresh audience of potential clients or suppliers, all in a supportive, unpressured environment.

The Keynote Speaker for this meeting will be David Thorpe of FSB showing how to access publicly funded business support and how to review your business in readiness for support. There has never been a better time for small businesses wanting support for business growth as the number of grants and schemes available is at an all-time high. But what the situation will be post March 2019, especially with regard to EU funding, is an unknown so now would be a good time to establish your business support needs.

In addition, FSB representatives will be on hand to talk to you about ensuring you get the most from your FSB membership and of course time to mingle and circulate with your promotional literature and those all-important business cards! Details on joining #FSBConnect will also be available at the event, which is completely free.

There will also be an opportunity to place a business card into a hat with the winner getting the opportunity to do a 5 minute talk to the whole room about their business at the next meeting.

The format will continue with both formal and informal B2B Networking after a buffet on arrival. The formal networking is followed by the usual brief presentation by a visiting speaker on an essential topic to help Members and Affiliates with running their businesses. So far there has been some excellent ‘Golden Moments’ where a group member gets the chance to do a ‘pitch’ to highlight their own products and services and enjoy a moment in the spotlight. The evenings are led by our Development Manager and the local Membership Adviser is also on hand to provide information and guidance. The event concludes soon after 8.00pm but most tend to linger a little longer to network informally or take the chance to have a chat with the FSB personnel or visiting speaker. #FSBConnect is not about ‘selling’ to the room but more about creating valuable business contacts and turning group colleagues into a sales force for your business. Plus, it is open to FSB Members and also Non Members with new faces attending each event.

This month's 'Golden Moment' will be Michael Shuster of 'One App' telling us about how his service provides quick and easy access to your data and business content.

We also run a similar format in the North of the Area in Caistor, Lincolnshire. Look out for the events advertised on Eventbrite - run bi-monthly, usually on the third Wednesday and on alternate months with Peterborough.

There is ample free parking available on site.
