Networking in Peterborough & Bedford 
TEL: 01733 513003 
Operating in Peterborough & Bedford 

 Business Club Meetings  

First and foremost the events are there to stimulate thought, to educate and to assist you to progress and grow your business in the most effective and profitable way possible, but they are also designed to be enjoyable, so don’t think for a moment there’s any ‘stuffiness’. Good business is done, but fun is had as well. 
Along with business focused events with speakers who present subjects such as marketing – practical marketing, ideas you can take away and use tomorrow, selling – usable skills, ideas to help you sell more comfortably and efficiently and a host of other subjects ... we also have social events and party nights where you can let your hair down. 
Inevitably, at every event, networking naturally goes on, that’s what happens when anywhere between 25 and 55 business people get together in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. 
 
Now doesn’t that sound like a great way to meet and do business?

Referrals and Your Referability! 
Our speaker at this event is Mark Jarvis known as 'The Referral Builder' . . .
