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

All welcome, so why not bring a friend or colleague?

After informal networking over a buffet lunch, each attendee will have two minutes to describe their business to the group, followed by a quality speaker on a topic relevant to local businesses. As a follow on to last month's presentation, Trevor Lorkings is back "Being Digitally Creative" showing us how to think about the elements that go into creating marketing visuals and how to stand out and grab attention. It covers a guide to typography, image sourcing & usage and being creative with visual design

If you don't want to speak to the whole group - don't worry! All events are in a supportive, unpressured environment, connecting you with potential clients or suppliers. A table will be available for business cards and promotional literature.


12pm arrivals, networking and buffet lunch

12:30 FSB update and welcome, round the room introductions. You will have up to two minutes to introduce yourself and your business to everyone.
Share what you do and what you’re looking for- why not bring a product, prop or pictures to bring your business or idea to life! Don’t forget to bring lots of business cards.
