Businesses in Leicester are being invited to join one of the Midlands’ premier business support and networking organisations which is launching a new group in the city next month.
FaB Networking has chosen Leicester as the ideal location for its newest group and is inviting businesses to find out more at a special launch event on September 24th.
FaB Networking Leicester will be the sixth group to join the FaB family, which has almost 140 members across the Midlands.
As well as making useful connections, building relationships and discovering new opportunities in their local area, members are also able to network across the successful existing groups in Tamworth, Nuneaton, Hinckley, Coventry and Rugby.
The new Leicester group will be hosted at The Innovation Centre, Oxford Street, Leicester, LE1 5XY – located on the De Montfort University Campus.
FaB Leicester will Launch with an event on Tuesday, September 24, from 6pm to 8pm, and will be followed by monthly meetings on the last Tuesday of every month, at the same time and place.
FaB Networking operates a one seat policy per industry at its individual groups to maximise opportunities for each member, but all businesses interested in joining are invited to the launch to find out more.
To celebrate, any businesses signing up during the launch event will not have to pay the one-off £99 joining fee. Membership is just £25 per month, including attendance and refreshments at the monthly networking events.
The FaB ethos is all about providing the opportunity and a welcoming environment for local businesses to connect and grow – with no scary rules and a positive atmosphere.
It is run by mother and daughter team Amanda Bourne and Gemma Worthington. They said: “We are really excited to be launching FaB Networking Leicester and invite local businesses to come along and find out more about what we do and how we work. All of our meetings are relaxed and friendly, and all visitors receive a warm welcome. Our format works really well and the organisation is going from strength to strength.
“Our members have become an extended sales team for each other and will always turn to the wider FaB community first when they are looking to share or refer business.
“Some of our businesses now get a majority of their work through FaB Networking. If anyone would like to find out more, we’d love to see them at the launch event.”
Launching In Leicester is particularly special to Gemma as it was her University town and home for 4 years.
Meetings generally follow the format of a welcome and business news discussion, 60-second introduction round, guest speaker, an educational slot, smart-teams, open networking and refreshments.
The formation of the new Leicester group is part of wider expansion plans to grow FaB Networking across the region in the coming years.
