Event description

Description

A warm welcome to our bi-monthly meeting for small, medium, new, growing and still-not-quite-sure businesses in Swindon and north Wilts.

Our aim is to build a community and help develop supportive networks, enabling business and people to access the information and help they need.

Each meeting begins with a guest speaker - then it's time for networking.


For our Christmas special, we'll be putting you and your business stage-centre. What's the burning issues that's holding you and your business back? For the first 60 minutes of our gathering, we'll be working in teams of four - each person having 15 minutes to share an issue, discuss, get feedback and ideas.

The it's time for networking with a Christmas feel.

  • 10:30 Round Table Teamwork
  • 11:30 Networking
  • 12:00 The energised 'farewell'

Tea and coffee provided, of course. Bassett spring water to boot (springing from the tap). And your centre manager Jol will always be happy to give you a tour of the centre, the meeting rooms, hot-desk area and any available offices.

Please register free so we know how many to expect. Many thanks.

FAQs

This event sounds too good to be true - what's the catch?

Oh ye of little faith ...there is no catch here. This event - like Manor House Enterprise Centre where it's taking place - is provided by TEN - The Enterprise Network, a Wiltshire Council initiative to help and support small business in Swindon and Wiltshire. Please visit our website if you'd like to find out more: www.theenterprisenetwork.co.uk

I'd like to meet other business people to discuss things - but am a bit wary of 'networking'

The 'networking' part of our event is designed to help you meet as many possible allies in a short space of time. You're not going to have the time to solve the problems of the world, or even your marketing strategy, but we hope you'll swap contact details or business cards, and follow up the event with your own one-to-one meetings.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

There are regular buses from Swindon - 55/55A as well as the new R1 - stopping at Lime Kiln or High Street, Royal Wootton Bassett - both a short walk from Manor House Enterprise Centre. The trip takes about 25 minutes.

We have a small car park in front of the centre and there is plenty of unrestricted parking on the residential streets around the centre. (Although our address is High Street, you need to turn into Lime Kiln (right opposite the Esso petrol station) then take the first left into our car park.)

Someone mentioned office space, hot desks and meetings rooms to rent ...

We certainly did. Here at Manor House Enterprise Centre we've got it all for a small, start-up or growing business. Whether you just need an official business address (ask about our virtual office package) or a real spot to lay your laptop, connect your Blackbury, or network your printer ...we can offer anything from a half-day hot-desk to your very own office with full facilities and no hidden extras. Take a look at the website or get in touch with your questions and to arrange a viewing.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Please email Jol at manorhouse@theenterprisenetwork.co.uk You can also get him on 01793 230708 sometimes.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No you don't. And please do bring any friends or colleagues who will be interested - just email us beforehand to let us know (or ask them to register here on Eventbrite). manorhouse@theenterprisenetwork.co.uk

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

Sure.
