A big thank you to all who attended last month’s Friends of Braintree Town meeting.  We had nearly 70 guests join us for an excellent 2 hours of networking over a hot coffee and a bacon roll.  The feedback from our guests was excellent and it’s great to see the reputation of the event growing with each successful meeting.
We are really looking forward to the next meeting which is an evening event on Thursday 14 November.  We’d like to make it the biggest yet!
As always, it will be a great opportunity for businesses from Braintree and the surrounding areas to get together in a relaxed and informal environment to meet new contacts and strengthen existing relationships. There is no speed networking, you don’t have to give a speech and it won’t cost you a penny!
What do you need to know?
We get together once a month at Braintree Town FC (The Amlin Stadium, Clockhouse Way, Braintree, Essex, CM7 3RD).  The next meeting is Thursday 14 November from 4:30pm-6:30pm.  The meetings are free to attend – if you like us and you’d like to join up and support the club there is a great membership package which includes advertising space and a copy of the attendance list with contact details, but that’s up to you.  There’s plenty of free parking and food, tea and coffee is provided free of charge.  How’s that for great value?
The meetings are very informal – there are no bells or whistles and you don’t need to give a 60 second speech.  We expect a lot of bookings, so we can guarantee you will meet a real mix of businesses – large and small.  This is a great opportunity to make new contacts and catch up with old friends in a relaxed environment.
