Meet like-minded, local businesses to make new contacts

Join us for networking over a light lunch

#FSBConnect Rutland Networking

Across the UK there are thousands of businesses just like you looking to make new connections. To help local businesses, we host regular FSB Connect networking events #FSBConnect. These are high quality, face to face networking events that provide great opportunities, new contacts and business information in an enjoyable and relaxed format.

Join fellow business owners and entrepreneurs in a friendly, informal environment over lunch kindly hosted by FSB member, Kristy Carey at her Wisteria Hotel. 

Our speaker for March is Jon Britain from Upskill Group who'll present on What's your personal impact? Grow your confidence and increase your influence.

Jon specialises in helping people have a happier and more productive day at work by developing their knowledge, skill and behaviours.

Location & Parking

The hotel's free, private on site car park has 19 spaces and carparking is allocated on a first come first serve basis. Should the carpark be at capacity on your arrival, you can find additional parking in the Museum carpark next door to the hotel, the Catmos carpark across the road from the hotel or the Brooke Road carpark 50m from the hotel. Please note that these carparks do have a nominal charge for parking, which can be paid by cash at the machine in the carpark or by mobile phone, from 8am to 6pm Monday to Saturday. 

The 'private driveway' entrance to the hotel carpark is reached from South Street at the back of the Hotel. It is opposite the Fire Station between the Museum car park wooden fence and the large green hedge on the border with Cavell's store.
