Immersive and interactive networking with 100s of visitors on an innovative platform
As a member of The Business Community, you get access to as many of the following workshops as you like. They are genuinely commercial workshops that if you weren't a member, you would be paying for. Do take advantage of these offers as all small business owners should be continually developing and learning new skills.
The people offering these workshops are not being paid to do so - it is part of their contribution to the community - it would be great if you could support them.
Each event is limited to 10 people, and will be 1-2 hours, held on the first or third Tuesday of the month at 2pm - check the calendar below to find out specific dates.

The Business Community is a vibrant networking group that successfully combines professional relationship building with business education. Paul’s engaging facilitation style enables people to bond quickly and learn from each other. The inputs provide up to date thinking to challenge the members of The Business Community to think and act differently so to improve business results.Paul Beesley - Beyond Theory
I enjoyed my first meeting at The Business Community. The atmosphere was friendly and welcoming. Anyone new to networking would feel comfortable from the outset. The agenda was enjoyable, but business-like and informative. It was interesting to learn about all the other businesses around the table, and they showed a genuine interest in my business. What stood out for me was when we broke for a 10 minute 121 with another individual. That was a chance to establish a real connection with someone else in the room.Robin Kirkley - Vizeo Media
I really enjoy the meetings, the format works well and the atmosphere is friendly, most importantly it is not too scary if you are new to networking. I have made some valuable business contacts over the last year that I would not have found had it not been for The Business Community.Andi Herrington - Wallis Payroll
The Business Community has been extremely helpful to my business. The meetings are well run - they have a well-defined structure, but have a good mix of formality and informality. I enjoy meeting other members, have made some good connections, got great business advice from Paul and the wider group and, last but not least, gained work whose value is several times the cost of membership.Mark Coster - Pixooma
