Work in hospitality ? Then join our sector specific networking group and grow your contacts

Do you work in or supply the hospitality sector? If so then why not join us for our new networking group just for you.

This group will meet quarterly and discuss the topics important to you and your business. You will have the opportunity to share your thoughts and ideas and your views will then be fed back to FSB's Policy Team to help inform our national and local work to represent you. This will also be a great opportunity to make and cement relationships with other business owners in your sector.

Jennie Riding, owner of Artlegarth Country Lodges in Cumbria and FSB's Policy Representative for hospitality, will be chairing this session.

She will bring to bear both her own business experience and the intelligence she receives through her voluntary role at FSB.

This month we will be discussing the pressures of running a seasonal business in unseasonable times. Many hospitality businesses are often at their busiest when childcare is at its most challenging and at its quietest when energy costs reach their peak. Come along and discuss how you manage the modern-day pressures of rising costs, lack of childcare, especially for older children and all the associated challenges of running a seasonal small business.

Whether you are new to networking or looking for something more related to your work, both FSB members and non-members are welcome.

We look forward to you joining us!

Due to the very specific nature of this group we ask business owners from other sectors to join our more general networking events instead.

To enable FSB to deliver a high level of customer service at our events, and to tailor the content where appropriate, we will share your full name and business name with the host of the event you have registered to attend. The event hosts are representatives of FSB who irretrievably delete your details following the event.  Should you not consent to your full name and business name being shared with the event host, please contact [email protected] within three working days of the event taking place, with details of the event.
