May Networking Meeting

May Networking Meeting

There was a chance for members and visitors at Bingham Business Club’s latest meeting to do some networking before breakfast.

The club is a support, social network and forum for businesses in and around the Bingham area. It offer members and other attendees the chance to meet and constructively work together to generate revenue and help address the issues that face local businesses.

Whether you are a new business starting out or a long-established part of the landscape, the club welcomes your input and looks forward to seeing you at one of its future meetings.

The Bingham Business Club meets monthly at Yeung Sing on the corner of Market Street and Long Acre, Bingham, at 8am, except for the summer barbecue and Christmas lunch.

Meetings usually take the form of introductions, followed by a speaker, and then a cooked breakfast. But the May meeting was a networking session, giving existing and new members the opportunity to meet one another and learn about their businesses.

Meetings also regularly include 30-second slots, in which members or visitors can tell the meeting about services, events or news that may be of interest.

At the latest meeting, chairman Jonathan Hammond introduced Ian Hallett of of Magnet Insurance Services Ltd, who spoke about the company’s support of Beaumond House Community Hospice; Tanya Cornford of Water at Work, which marks 20 years in business this year; Tim O’Brien, who specialises in aviation art, but spoke about his other work, including locally-sold cards; Fiona Farmer of Toot Hill School, who encouraged members to help at the school’s speed networking event for pupils; and Nigel Regan, manager of the Yeung Sing and Bingham Townhouse Hotel, who welcomed the business club members to the venue.

The club’s next meeting is on Tuesday, June 27.
