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 our refurbished venue    

 Having trialled a return to physical meeting it was deemed such a success that the next meeting of our  Business for You Network and all forthcoming meetings until further notice will be at our newly refurbished location of

The Kegworth Hotel and Conference Centre

Packington Hill, Kegworth DE74 2DFd  


Friday 1st October 2021,  9.30am-11am

hosted by Melanie Smith-Rawlings 

Unlimited tea and coffee provided by the hotel in a safe environment

Our events are open to all businesses and charities situated in the East Midlands, at a cost of £10 payable in advance to cover all room hire and refreshments. Any surplus goes to supplement our Christmas charity event at which we aim to support two local charities nominated by our members. Last year we raised just over £600 and we hope to do better this year so the more you support our next 3 meetings the better our chances of doing so

At our September event, Hayley Mason of Captcha Photography as well as sharing her journey with us gave us us some guidance in how best to use photos in social media. 

In October, the Value Added Talk will be given by Keith Salway of Handytech who, by popular request, will reprise his presentation of how he uses lasers to make his incredible range of products that can be used for marketing purposes.

We will of course also continue to share good news stories from our friends and enjoy our return to the one to one chats we have all missed so much.   

If you would like to attend, please email to:  and we will send you  details on how to pay in advance.     

We look forward to seeing old friends and new on

Friday 1st October 2021 at 9.30am to 11am
