Joint business breakfast networking meeting in February.

Here at Bonallack and Bishop we are happy to confirm that yet again we are holding a joint breakfast networking meeting in the New Year with Salisbury’s Ambassadors Business Breakfast Club. We have been holding these joint breakfasts twice a year for four or five years now, and the events are always really well attended – with up to 60 local business people happily networking away and making new relationships..

This joint breakfast club meeting will be held at the Grasmere House Hotel in Salisbury on Tuesday, February 10.

If you have not yet been along to one of the meetings of our Salisbury Breakfast Club, which has been running now since 2008, we love to see you there. The breakfast starts at 8 AM and run through to about 9.15am and they are open to all. There is no formality, and no requirement to get up and make a presentation – just the chance for a great British breakfast and the chance to network with dozens of local businesses.

There no need for a subscription or joining fee – just £10 for a hearty cooked breakfast. But do make sure that you pay for your breakfast in advance by 12 noon on Monday, February 9 please.

Are you interested in joining us for breakfast? Simply email marketing assistant Tina Shaw at Bonallack and Bishop on tina.shaw@bishopslaw.com or call Tina’s direct dial 01722 424483 to book your place.

Stonehenge Chamber of Trade Business 2 Business Showcase – see you there

Of the three local business Expos we have taken part in over the years, this one is probably our favourite. It’s now in its eighth year, and we are proud to have supported it since the outset in 2006.

It’s not a big fancy Showcase – it doesn’t try to be overambitious, but it really works. While, for example, the Salisbury Expo was hugely flashy, it was clear too expensive and the whole thing collapsed. In contrast, the Stonehenge Business 2 Business Showcase seems to improve year-on-year.

It’s very friendly and needless to say, we’ve already booked our stand there.

When does it take place? It’s on Thursday, 18th September 2014 and takes place at Antrobus House in Amesbury.

This year the Business to Business showcase will be opened by Councillor Jane Scott, Leader of Wiltshire Council.

There may still be a couple of very reasonably priced stands left if you hurry – but if not, it still worth coming along to meet a whole host of local Amesbury, Salisbury, and Wiltshire-based businesses – because admission to visit the event is FREE!

Not only is entry free – but refreshments are kindly provided by the Chamber of Trade’s supporters free of charge – based on previous years, there are some pretty yummy things – this year, apparently you can enjoy sweet treats thanks from Dazzle and Bake, canapés courtesy of The Antrobus Arms Hotel, and afternoon tea courtesy from the Holiday Inn.

Free food and drink – free networking and a friendly welcome – what more could you want. See you there.

Tim Bishop, Bonallack and Bishop
