Business Networking in Colchester, Essex
What We’re About
We are a group of local business owners in Colchester, Essex who meet once a week. As a collective, we are well-connected, ambitious and keen to meet other business owners.
At BNI, we strive to support one another’s businesses on the principle of givers gain – the idea that ‘if I refer someone to you, you will do the same for me.’ This is an incredibly successful strategy; many of our members attain the majority of their business from BNI.
How to Join
Visitors are welcome at our weekly networking events. If your business isn’t already represented, come along and see us in action!
During the event, you can speak to various members and scope out whether BNI membership is for you.
We meet at the Marks Tey Hotel in Colchester at 6.30am every Tuesday morning. Our attendance fee is £15 per meeting, which includes breakfast.
