A big thank you to all who attended last week’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 tasty buffet.  The feedback from our guests was excellent and it’s great to hear of some large pieces of business taking place between companies who have met at Friends of Braintree Town.

After such a great turnout we have high hopes for the next meeting which is a breakfast on Thursday 10 October.  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 10 October from 7:00am – 9.00am.  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.  Minal Backhouse, our MD will give a short presentation on a current topic of interest, so you’ll have 5 minutes’ break to eat your food!
