A new business networking group is being launched in Lynn next week with the intention of setting up similar groups in future around West Norfolk.
Nikki Butlin, who runs her own business consultancy Athena Business Services from her home in Walpole St Andrew, is behind the initiative.
She is setting up a group which is part of the www.4networking.biz group which works on a flexible basis where people can become members and attend any other 4N meetings around the country or local area.
Said Nikki: “I’m looking for business owners in the local area to come along for the first meeting to see how it works and if it’s for them. The meetings are then fortnightly afterwards.
“They will all have the opportunity to give a 40-second pitch about themselves and their business, and then have three 1-2-1 ten-minute chats with other people in the room. There’s no trade lock out, you don’t have to attend every week if you don’t want to and you can attend other groups as well.
“It’s a great way to meet local business people in the area, make friends and find support networks too. I’ve already got a few other 4N members who live further afield booked in to come to the Lynn event. Once it’s up and running, it will attract other existing members into the area, too, which is a great thing.”
“I’m looking to create more groups in Norfolk so that they will all link together. I’ve got great support from the 4N head office team and the regional leader who is helping me to set up.”
The event will be held on Thursday, March 13, at 8am, at The Quality Hotel, Beveridge Way, and the cost for breakfast is £12. To book a place contact Nikki on 01553 650182 or 07917 703508. Her business website address is www.athenabusinessservices.co.uk
