Successful launch of free networking event to help SMEs
Basepoint Business centres in Tewkesbury and Evesham recently launched ‘The Networking Hub’ – an event which aims to give local businesses the chance to network and learn valuable business tips – all for free.
Approximately 30 business individuals attended the event and benefited from listening to informative presentations by Abid Naser, from Smartline International, who spoke about the importance of search engine optimization (SEO), followed by Arif Khlafe, Head of Litigation at DF Legal, who advised on managing cash flows. Lastly, Jan Bowen-Nielson and Jon Harris, from Quiver Management, discussed business coaching strategies as well as giving tips on how to develop leadership skills.
Claire Vagges, centre manager at Basepoint Tewkesbury, comments: “Our first Networking Hub was a great success and all three speakers discussed topics which were very beneficial to all of our attendees. As a result, both DF Legal and Quiver Management will be holding free clinics for Basepoint licensees – an example of how the local business community comes together and supports each other.”
Ian Fenney, centre manager at Basepoint Evesham, adds: “The Networking Hub was a hive of activity and it was fanatastic to see people finding it beneficial - it’s events like this that can assist small businesses at no extra cost.”
