    Speed Networking with our Neighbours

    Make new contacts quickly, expand your business, have fun!

    Please note:  Due to the current situation we are regularly reviewing this event.

    Every year Worthing and Adur Chamber co-host a Speed Networking event with neighbour Chambers; Brighton Chamber, Chichester Chamber and Sussex Chamber.

    This seated 3 way innovative format is fast and furious, but can be hugely effective.  It’s very different to a relaxed, informal networking event but definitely worth a try. Groups of 3 people will sit together, each having 1 minute to ‘pitch’. After each minute you switch to the next person. After 3 minutes, two of the group will move in different directions to the next groups. (Those seasoned speed networkers will know which is the best chair to sit in. One person doesn’t move but we won’t share the secret of which one!!)

    Date: Wednesday 5th August
    Time: 12:00pm - 2:30pm 
    Venue: The Hilton Avisford Park Hotel, Yapton, Arundel BN18 0LS
    Cost : Members: £24 + VAT | Non-members: £30 + VAT includes a buffet lunch 

    This event is held in partnership with Brighton Chamber, Chichester Chamber and Sussex Chamber and Worthing & Adur Chamber. 


         

    Cancellation Policy: Due to the current situation the cancellation policy will be reviewed nearer the time

    Please note there will be photography at this event
