Be part of the Community and come along to one of our Community Networking events
Link4Growth events are informal and relaxed drop-in sessions organized to provide a regular opportunity to connect with others in your local community. At a Link4Growth community networking event, you will find yourself in a friendly environment where you are able to tap into the connections and experience of others. The events can be at any time of the day, some are breakfast or coffee events in the morning, some are evening drinks events. We even have some afternoon teas and Sunday lunch events too!
Link4Growth community networking events exist to rebuild communities and are not ‘business networking’ events, however the events are open to anyone who wishes to come along and meet, talk, listen, learn and connect in others in their local community.
To enable anyone in the community to participate, we have removed what is often the biggest barrier to attending networking events and that is cost (attendees just pay for their own refreshments). The events are all organized and hosted by Link4Growth volunteers who have stepped up to help rebuild their local town, and because anyone is welcome to come along, we get to connect with a diverse cross-section of people.
Some of the questions we are often asked about our events
Q. How often do the events run and how many are there now?
We have nearly 100 events running across the country and they are all monthly or 4 weekly.
Q. How many people attend these events?
It varies, however most regular attendees would agree that it doesn’t matter how many are at the event as Link4Growth are all about conversations and really getting to know people. We achieve this by having good conversations.
Q. What if there is someone else doing what I do?
That is great, because often people collaborate and work together in Link4Growth. It’s about everyone helping each other. There are more than enough opportunities for everyone to be successful.
Q. How long do meetings last, and what is the structure?
Most meetings last for 90 minutes however people often enjoy themselves so much they stay around much longer. There is no structure to Link4Growth events, they are open networking, drop in sessions, come for as little or as long as you like. There are no elevated sales pitches, no 60 second slots, no requirement to be a business owner.
Q. Is there a catch? Will I be asked to become a member?
There is no obligation at all for people attending our events to become Link4Growth members however a lot of people all contributing just a small amount allows us to expand into other areas. Link4Growth membership costs just £3 per month. You can find out more on our Join L4G page.
