It is an unprecedented world at the moment and because of this, we are having to be ever evolving. We are trying to adapt so that we can continue to support the local area. One of the ways that we have been doing this, is by transferring our business networking events to Virtual Meetups – which are now FREE for Silver members, as well as Gold members.
Our virtual Meetups give local businesses the opportunity to introduce their products and services. However we have also found the Meetups are having a positive impact on attendees social life as well as mental health.
The Meetup sessions are held on Zoom on Thursday mornings starting at 10am
We had initially agreed to hold the events fortnightly – more regularly than our normal monthly events. However, it was not as easy to set this up on Eventbrite (how we process the ticket purchasing). So we have decided to hold these weekly.
Once a month these events will be supported by the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), whereby their members can attend our virtual Meetups for free.
These Virtual Meetups will cost
£10 to non members,
£5 for Bronze members and FSB members (if it is not the ‘Supported by FSB’ Meetup),
Free for Silver and Gold Members.
At our Virtual Meetup on Thursday 16th April, we were able to replicate our unique Speed Networking format, as seen at our physical Meetups over the past 7 years. All agreed that they liked the format and it had been productive for them.
Survey results showed that attendees thought these events were –
useful for their business, enjoyable and that they will attend further ones.
also beneficial to attendees social life and mental health.
