Another packed networking event!  Thank you very much to everyone who attended the Friends of City breakfast on 20 September – despite the early hour we had 90 people join us to build new relationships and catch up with old friends over a hot coffee and a bacon roll.

The next meeting is the Business Expo on Thursday 31 October.  This is held three times a year and is one of Chelmsford’s busiest networking events with over 250 regular guests.  We are confident of a record attendance this time round as we already have 200 guests and 35 of the 40 available stands booked for the Expo.  If you are already a member make sure you book your free stand before the spaces run out!

What do you need to know?

We get together once a month at Chelmsford City FC (Melbourne Park, Salerno Way, Chelmsford, Essex, CM1 2EH), alternating between breakfast and lunchtime meetings.  The next event is the Business Expo on Thursday 31 October from 12:00pm – 3:00pm.

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, 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.  The meetings are very popular, 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.

If you’d like to come along

Either drop our Business Development Manager Aaron Desmond an email at:

Or give him a call on 01245 893404 or 07802 807197.

To keep things fair, we only allow up to 5 businesses from any trade or profession to attend (unlimited for the Expos), so please book early to avoid disappointment.  Aaron will add contact details of everyone who books in to the attendance list which is available to you if you become a member.

If you can’t attend this time

The dates for the next few meetings are as follows:
Friday 22 November from 7am – 9am
Thursday 19 December from 12pm – 2pm

If you contact Aaron now, he will make sure you get a reminder.

Last but not least, if you know someone you think might be interested then please feel free to forward them the event details – the bigger the group, the more new contacts we all make and everyone’s a winner.  Please also feel free to share the event to your Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+ and other networks.

We look forward to seeing you there!
