Another packed networking event!  Thank you very much to everyone who attended the Friends of City breakfast on 30 July – we had 110 people join us to build new relationships and catch up with old friends over a hot bacon roll and a coffee.  The feedback from the guests has been great and we know there is a lot of business being done – thank you all for your comments.
The next meeting is on Thursday 22 August.  Word is spreading far and wide about the great mix of businesses attending the meetings and new visitors are joining us each month from all around Essex, London and the South East.  If you haven’t made it along to a meeting yet then now is your chance to try us 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 a lunch on Thursday 22 August from 12:00pm – 2:00pm.  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.
