looking for a local networking event to join this week?

July’s Networking Lunch is this
Thursday July 20th, at
The Grosvenor Arms, 12:30 – 2pm, £12

A reminder that this month’s Networking Lunch will be held for the first time at The Grosvenor Arms this coming Thursday.  Coming to a networking event, be it breakfast or lunch, is NOT about having to sell to others or having lots of people try to sell to you and even if you are not a Chamber member, you are welcome to come along to two meetings before deciding if you’d like to join.

Shaftesbury Chamber is now into the second half of its new sixth month programme of networking events to help local businesses get to know one another and support each other’s businesses. Becoming a member of the Chamber is only £40 per annum to gain access to all of the networking events held throughout the year. Amongst other benefits, membership also gives you the opportunity to apply to do a ten-minute presentation at one of the meetings on an aspect of your business that could be of interest to other local businesses. Think of networking as an opportunity to share with others why you love doing what you do.

All meetings take place on a Thursday, coinciding with market day and we alternate breakfasts and lunches.

Each meeting includes:

  • Opportunities for informal networking
  • Time to briefly introduce yourself and your business to everyone
  • A ten minute presentation of interest to businesses
  • Announcement slot for local events (for which you can submit items), relevant Chamber notices and testimonials to thank other members for referring business
  • A delicious breakfast or lunch at one of the Chamber’s catering establishments
  • The opportunity to distribute your business cards or other literature
To book your place at our next meeting please email networking@shaftesburychamber.co.uk by Tuesday 18th July or call Karen on 07941 031427.  Don’t forget to let us know any dietary requirements.

Future meetings
Breakfasts are from 7.45 to 9.00am and lunches are from 12.30 to 2.00pm unless otherwise stated. If you would like your venue to be considered for hosting a Chamber networking event or you would like the opportunity to speak at one of the events please get in touch.  We’re taking a break during August, so the next networking event after this week will be:

  • 28th September – Breakfast: £7 at Turnbulls
