Business For You

Business For You is an informal (not for profit) networking group set up by us, for you.

We want networking to be both worthwhile and enjoyable, we keep things light-hearted and relaxed.

We meet on a monthly basis, usually on the first Friday of each month which makes it simple to get the dates in your diary!




  Join us to meet new contacts, introduce your services with your 60 seconds on what you do and build relationships in the relaxed and comfortable setting of your home office! 


Yes, thanks to our good friend Covid-19 we are in lock down mode so the next meeting of our new improved Business for You meeting will be via Zoom on Friday 7th August, 9.30am-11am 


hosted by Melanie Smith-Rawlings and Martin Scholes 


Unlimited tea and coffee provided by yourselves and as many cakes and biscuits as you feel like bringing along! 


Our events are open to all businesses situated in the East Midlands, and it’ll only cost you £Nil  to cover the cost of the drinks and meeting room!!!  


Last month we had an update from Martin Scholes of Scholes Wealth Management who explained the impact on both the investment markets and what that meant for our savings and long term planning.  This month one of our committee, Elliot Harris of Strategy and Governance will talk to us about business planning as we come out of lockdown and it’s impact on our cash flow. 


We will also be sharing some good news stories from our friends. 


If you would like to attend, please email to: 


and we will send you the Zoom link the day before.  


We look forward to seeing old friends and new on Friday 3rd July 2020 at 9.30am to 11am
