Business Festival Speed Networking
 Tuesday 23rd June at 6pm
The fastest and most cost-effective way to positively promote your business - and it’s really good fun!

Of all the many and varied events that the Chamber hosts my favourite has always been Speed Networking - delegates meet over 40 people in three hours who are not only upbeat about their business but who are also super excited about networking - a winning combination. Its noisy, frantic, action-packed and you come away with a fist full of business cards, some great connections, an introducer or two and if you're lucky, some new friends. Book your place today - limited to 49 spaces - you will not be disappointed. June Cory VP and speed networking host
