Business Buzz is a new approach to business networking and is a great way to catch up with the local business community in West Oxfordshire. Business Buzz meets on the first Tuesday of the month between 10am-12pm at The Part & Parcel in Witney. There is no membership, no pre-booking required, just £8 payable by app in advance, or at the event. Please see Business Buzz.
Juice Witney is a networking group of local businesses that meets every Tuesday morning from 7am to 8.30am at UE Coffee Roasters, Witney OX29 7HA. The members of the group help each other with business leads and referrals, business support and practical business advice. Please visit Juice Witney.
Netwalking is an active alternative to traditional indoor business networking. Joining one of the ‘netwalks’ will get you out in the open air, away from your office and give you the opportunity to meet like-minded business contacts. No need to eat a big breakfast and worry about delivering your one-minute introduction. Instead, you will find yourself having relaxed natural chats about your business and theirs, whilst walking in the countryside. Members and non-members welcome. Please see Netwalking.
Networking Women is a collaborative organisation offering networking opportunities for women running small businesses in the Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire area. The West Oxfordshire branch meets on the fourth Friday of each month at The Evenlode in Eynsham. Attendees range from new start-up businesses looking for support and guidance to well established businesses. Please visit Networking Women.
