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!    

 We continue in lock down mode for now so the next meeting of our  Business for You Network will be via Zoom on

Friday 6th July 2021,  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 we continue to be FREE OF CHARGE whilst we cannot meet physically   

At our July event, Ladey Adey gave us some tips on how to refresh your marketing approach including in your 1 minute pitches at networking events.

In August, the Value Added Talk is a co-operation between Ana San Segundo, VA with Satsuma Virtual and Isi Dixon, Productivity Coach. Together they’ll be sharing tips and advice how you can save time, reduce distractions and set yourself up for getting more done during your workday. During Ana’s section you will discover tips and shortcuts to get the best out of Canva as well as valuable admin hacks. Isi will then reveal her top tips to set yourself up for success to reduce distractions and improve your ability to focus.

We will of course also continue to share 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 6th August 2021 at 9.30am to 11am
