Business Bites

Taking place twice per month at locations around the county, our Business Bites Networking events offer the opportunity for relaxed after-work networking in a social setting over drinks and canapes. They are completely free to attend for both Chamber members and non-members to attend and have a strong reputation within the business community. But don’t take our word for it, here’s Natalie Barker of M&M Business Support:

“Business Bites is a great format and the venues are nice too. With high numbers attending each time, I’ve met lots of interesting people. Networking is about exchanging information, so learning about people’s businesses and what their roles are has been really interesting and hugely valuable. I’ve secured two clients from Business Bites networking events.” – Natalie Barker, M&M Business Support
