Meet other business owners at our monthly networking event hosted by The Plaza in Braintree.

Meet with like-minded entrepreneurs, self-employed people and small business owners in the modern setting of The Plaza in Braintree.

Network, collaborate, promote your services and support each other at our  monthly small business networking, which is open to FSB members and non-members.

We'll be joined each month by a guest speaker from a local small business who will give the group some practical take-away points to implement in their own business.

Member tickets for this event are £5 and non-member tickets are £7. The price includes tea, coffee and biscuits.

After the networking from 09.30am – 11.30am, we are delighted that David Hewitt from East Saxon training, will be teaching us lifesaving skills for adults and children in just one hour. The optional free session will cover:

  • How to perform Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and use an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED)
  • How to put someone in the recovery position
  • How to provide first aid to someone who is bleeding
  • How to provide first aid to someone who is choking
  • How to provide first aid to the most common medical emergencies

There is free parking available on site and the venue is fully accessible. Please enter your registration number into the computer at reception, to claim free parking for the duration of the event.

Up to 2 tickets per email address can be purchased for our events.
