NBN Meetings

Our Natural Business Network NBN meetings offer physical and online meetings. Online ones are currently held every Thursday morning via Zoom. And our Physical ones are just starting to appear with a variety of times, places and formats so that there we be something for everyone wanting to network. And always a relaxed and informal element as the main part of our events.

See registration via the Eventbrite links below for ALL NBN meetings.

Zoom meetings are still on offer alongside our new physical ones this year as suiting members and guests very nicely! The reduction on travel CO2 emissions, the additional inclusivity it allows, with savings on time, costs and the convenience means that Virtual events will stay in place for significant part of our networking activities.

An exciting event for us will be our NBN Christmas Meeting and Lunch on Sunday 11th December 2022 at Esseborne Manor Hotel.  We are really looking forward to that. The hotel is always beautifully decorated, log fires will be roaring, the food there is exceptional. It will be a moment in time to review all the successes of our wonderful NBN members and associates, and consider some of the things we will be doing next year. I can’t wait to be there doing just that – as I know there is so much for us to celebrate!

Joint Networking with other groups and organisations still is, and has been explored and included where they are beneficial to our NBN members and anyone jointly networking with us, to the benefit of all. The Andover Business Week initiated by Hampshire Chamber of Commerce and NatWest via Andover Chamber Business Strategy Group is likely to be running again this year after being so successful in 2021 – This is likely to be held in September – possibly the week of the 16th? When we know for sure we will share details.

I feel that generally everything for Business and also Community Networking is on the up for Andover and Test Valley. And with the efforts of the Andover BID and TVBC our Andover Town Centre is improving by leaps and bounds.

I do hope you all keep safe and well and that you will network with us soon. If you need help with ‘ZOOM’ pop along for a look at their website where simple instructions are all available – https://zoom.us/ I know that tech is now an old friend to some of you who are expert in it, but bearing in mind our many fledgling businesses please always feel welcome to ask for help in any way. We are in this together and there is a rich resource of expertise to be shared amongst our members, associates and visitors.

Best wishes
