Top Business Networking Events to Attend This Year in Northamptonshire

Avatar for administrator administrator 9th January 2018 0 Comments

We love a good networking event, and this long established method of spreading the word about your business still unlocks a bevy of benefits, even in this internet obsessed world. As well as generating referrals and increasing business in your respective marketplace, joining networking groups and attending local, regional and even national events delivers a great source of connections, some of which you may call on weeks, months or years down the line. Looking for a new career path? Networking events are the stomping grounds of would-be employers and great talent. In fact, 85% of vacancies are filled through networking.

Northamptonshire is a great place to do business, not that we’re bias, and with the ringing in of a new year comes a whole new calendar of events. Whether you’re the owner or representative of an established company or an entrepreneur looking to raise your profile in a sector you’ve just started business in, networking events supply the opportunities, connections and advice you need to cement your status.

The following events are on our radar, perhaps we’ll see you there…

The Business Club Northants – Sunley

The Business Club Northants is a firm favourite with over 100 local businesses. Hosting regular networking events across Sunley, Kettering and Milton Keynes, their upcoming business club on Thursday 25th January is an event where fresh ideas come to life. With the tagline “expanding your horizons”, the event isn’t your typical corporate gathering. Its relaxed atmosphere is perfect for those new to networking whilst its 6pm start time means your regular working day won’t be affected.

Attendance is free for Business Club Northants members, but don’t be deterred from coming along if you’re not a part of the club. Guests pay just £15 for the evening, a ticket price that includes dinner, presentations and networking, and is payable on the door.

Connect Networking – Connect Kettering

With more than 160 members, 28% of which boast turnovers of over £100K, Connect Networking is one of the top business networking communities in the region. Formerly NN coNNect, Connect Networking runs a variety of networking events across a selection of locations providing attendees with the perfect mix of open forum discussions, information exchange, networking and one-to-one business support.

Events, like their upcoming meeting at Kettering Rugby Club on Wednesday 7th February are charged at £16. Their Kettering event runs from 7.30am until 9.30am meaning post-meeting it’s business as usual.

Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce – Networking Lunch

From early morning to lunch, networking events are more than just a chance to skive off from your day job. Networking lunches hosted by Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce are favourites amongst local businesses, and get booked up rather quickly. There are still spaces available for their recently announced Networking Lunch at The Kettering Ritz on Thursday 15th February. Chamber members can book online with tickets priced at £25.00 plus VAT.
