Boost your Business

More than 60 local businesses have now been to a Balsall Business Club networking meeting.

Members range from sole traders working from home in the village to representatives of larger firms based in the area.

The next meeting will be on Friday 20 November at 7.30am. The guest speaker will be Jill Bowman of On Target Training. Ahead of December’s speed networking session, Jill will help us to create a perfect elevator pitch, ideal for explaining our businesses in one minute or less. Please, please sign up via this link so we can order enough breakfast.

The group usually meets on the third Friday of each month for breakfast at the British Legion. Each attendee gets to introduce themselves to the group and there is a guest speaker. Members offer discounts to other members and have really helped each other’s businesses grow and develop by providing advice, information, support, and referrals.

December’s meeting will follow a slightly different format. It will be an evening meeting, again at the British Legion, with speed networking and mince pies and mulled wine. It will be a great opportunity to meet other local business people.

Please arrive around 6.45pm. The speed networking session will start at 7.15pm, once it’s is underway latecomers won’t be able to join in, although you can still have your mince pie and mulled wine! The cost is £5 payable on the night, again please sign up if you’d like to come along.

If you’d like to know more about attending or joining please contact Claire Turner on 07999 696131 or email
