Faringdon Business Breakfast Club

About

Faringdon Business Breakfast Club is run by a group of volunteers for the benefit of the club. ¬†There are no membership fees, no need to bring referrals and no compulsion to turn up every month – though clearly networking works better if you are a regular member. ūüôā

We want to facilitate an environment to allow the group to understand the services that each member provides to allow members to refer business to each other on an informal basis.  Many of our members are also happy to informally support each other as they build their businesses by offering advice and guidance.

Speakers

Speakers are a regular feature of Faringdon Business Breakfast Club. ¬†We find speakers from inside the group but also invite interesting speakers we have met in other groups. ¬†All speakers should remember that this is not a ‘sales pitch’ but is an opportunity to highlight your brand while offering the group something educational, interesting or informative.

As a regular attendee, I like the informal atmosphere and the opportunity to meet local people who I can put in touch with each other.

Accountant, Rees Russell

I attend the FBBC  regularly, as I enjoy meeting and building relationships with other local business owners.  There is a friendly and professional atmosphere and I make valuable and trustworthy connections. The fact that we meet regularly and get to know and understand how our individual businesses operate contributes to the success of the Club

I have dipped in and out of Faringdon Business Breakfast Club over the last 7 years due to work and other commitments.  I like the informal nature of the club and the opportunity to meet both clients and suppliers.
