We hold our monthly networking meetings on the third Thursday of every month; this year we will be visiting 12 different venues across Bedfordshire.  We also hold some meetings, which are slightly more extravagant and also open to men, which includes our prestigious Bedfordshire BusinessWomen Awards (March 2017), to salute women who do well in business.

Monthly meetings are well attended (usually 25-40 attendees)and are great for building your professional profile and meeting new contacts. At a typical meeting we commence with networking and swapping of business cards, followed by the opportunity for you to talk about and showcase your business and create new business introductions. Throughout the year we will also have speakers, business development sessions, and workshops.

If you’re new to networking, come along and see – we all know exactly what it’s like to walk into a room of strangers, and try our very best to make it fun, friendly and enjoyable.

As we are not-for-profit and run by a Committee of members, we aren’t tied into any set format. If you have ideas about how we can do things better please do tell us – we welcome all feedback – the good, the bad and the ugly!
