Breakfast Networking Groups

How the Breakfast Networking groups operate
Only one business from each sector can join the group to make sure all members have the
opportunity to win new business through recommendations.
Members pay for their cooked breakfast and there is an annual membership fee of £240
which each group can use part of to promote their businesses to residents and other local
Meetings run for around an hour and a half to two hours and each member business has the
opportunity to introduce themselves and explain what kind of new business leads and
introductions they are looking for.
No membership fees and free events
Thanks to financial support and management of the Partnership by Arun District Council’s Economic Development Unit, and the support of member companies, membership is free and so are regular networking and training events.
Keeping funds in the local economy
One of Arun Business Partnership’s key objectives is to encourage local companies to do business with each other to keep vital funds within the local economy. Every year, the friendships and partnerships struck through the ABP generate significant income for the whole Arun area.
Benefits of ABP Membership
As well as opportunities to meet and do business with member companies, the ABP provides grants, training and free business support. Our quarterly meetings are informal, enjoyable and relaxed – there is no pressure to make referrals or provide leads – this happens organically.
Join the Partnership and come along to our next ABP meeting to see how we work and how your business could benefit.
