Visit Chelmsford’s best attended networking group

What a great event!  Thank you very much to everyone who attended Friends of City on 21 August.  Over 70 people joined us to have some breakfast and meet new business contacts.

After 3 really popular meetings, the grapevine is doing it’s work and we’re getting enquiries from all over Essex and into London from new people keen to join us next time.  So, before you ask “when is the next one?” here are all the details.

So 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 at lunchtime on Wednesday 19 September from 12pm-2pm.  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.  We have already taken lots 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 breakfast!

If you’d like to come along 

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

[email protected]

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

To keep things fair, we only allow up to 3 businesses from any trade or profession to attend, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

If you can’t attend this time

The meeting after next will be on Thursday 25 October from 7am-9am.

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 let them know.  The bigger the group, the more new contacts we all make and everyone’s a winner.

We look forward to seeing you there!
