Leanne Castle, hosts Coffee Means Business and commented, “Over 20 business people attend our monthly events which are relaxed and informal. The format is simple, delegates stand and chat over coffee and biscuits, this gives them the opportunity to make new business contacts during the session. There is always the opportunity to win a bottle of wine in the free business card raffle and pick up some useful business tips and information. The venue is fantastic with plenty of free parking.”
The serviced office accommodation at Holkham Studios, Holkham Hall provide an affordable, flexible working environment, ideal for small businesses who may have outgrown their present unit or home office.
“Holkham Studios is perfect as a base for our new business start-up,” said David Bailey, CEO of Aitrak. “The location is idyllic and we’re able to work seamlessly with clients and partners around the world, most of whom think that we’re actually in London or San Francisco!”
Coffee Means Business is held from 9.30am until 11.30am, there are no membership or joining fees, just £5 per person, payable on arrival. Booking isn’t essential.
North Norfolk District Council commissioned GENIX in 2016 to organise and host Coffee Means Business in the North Norfolk area. They could see a need for a regular networking opportunity for businesses which didn’t involve expensive membership fees.
