13 Dec Top UK Business Networking Groups
A Handy List of Business Networking Groups
My clients and I have all done a fair bit of networking in our time and here’s a round up of some of the clubs and groups we’ve come across. We haven’t personally experienced every one of them, but thought a list like this could save a lot of time and research. if you do have a comment on any of these, or a new one for us, please do email me via the contact page or leave a comment below. Thanks!
Do remember, that with networking it takes time. You can’t walk into a new club or event and expect great things straight away, as I mention in another post about finding your tribe here here . Give yourself a networking budget and play around to find the events and cross section of people that suit you, your business and your lifestyle. Forcing yourself to attend breakfast meetings when you know you’re never at your best is just crazy and yet so many people do it.
Above all, if it’s not fun and you’re not getting anything from it, move on. As you can see, there are plenty more groups and clubs out there!
