Local online networking designed to benefit entrepreneurs, the self-employed and small businesses in the area. This month we will be joined by guest speaker Daniya Stewart, who founded PHOMO (a food company) during lockdown.

Event details

This area networking event aims to bring together businesses, and provide the opportunity to stay connected, supported and updated in these changing and challenging times.  

These regular monthly events are on the third Wednesday each month and hosted by FSB Member and local business owner Justin Charlton-Jones, a business coach, experienced business leader and public speaker. 

At a glance

Meetings are friendly and informal, and each business will have the chance to introduce themselves and also to freely network with other attendees in break out rooms. Each session includes a short presentation, or sharing session on a topic of interest to small businesses. 

All small businesses are welcome to attend and to strengthen their business across the region. 

We also welcome non-FSB members, this is a great opportunity to bring a friend, colleague or business associate to accompany you, so they too can benefit.

The speaker

This month we will be joined by guest speaker Daniya Stewart. Daniya founded Phomo, an artisan Vietnamese finish at home meal kits, at the beginning of Lockdown #1 when she missed the Pho soups she ate for lunch in the City and was bored of the usual calorie laden takeaways.

Join Daniya as she discusses the highs and lows of starting a new food business during lockdown and emerging  into new markets and customer expectations in life after the restrictions.
