The Net is different. From this website to the way we run our networking meetings, we have
challenged the accepted form of business networking and turned it into something more appropriate,
accessible and cost-effective for the average small to medium sized business in Tunbridge Wells and
the surrounding areas.
The whole ethos of the Net is to make business networking easier and simpler - with a focus
on connecting people and businesses in a friendly non-formal environment.
Business networking for business - simple
The Net's focus is on providing a forum for businesses to network with each other. Whilst
we have some structure, we have tried to keep the Net as simple as possible to allow our members
to use our meetings to network with one another and build strong long lasting business relationships.
To become a member, all you have to do is setup a standing order - to cover the cost of our meetings.
That's it, there's no registration fee, no form filling, nothing else.
Business networking - our meetings:
A typical business networking meeting of the Net will generally follow this structure:
- 06.45 - coffee and networking. Members use the time before breakfast to catch up with each other and network amongst the group
- 07:30 - breakfast and introductions. Over breakfast, each member takes it in turn to speak to the group for a minute. This is their time, and they can speak about anything they want, from what leads / referrals they're after, about their business, or their latest news
- 08:00 – 10 minute speaker slot. One member from the group has the opportunity to talk more about themselves and/or their business
- 08:15 – referrals and recommendations.
It's as simple as that.
Whilst we encourage members to provide referrals to each other (we even provide referral slips), there
is no pressure to do so.
