About talk Business UK

A little about us...


Networking with a difference! It is all about YOU and your business, not us!

Our history: Stratford Business Forum was set up 13 years ago to support the businesses and charities in the Stratford upon Avon region. The Forum grew from there and set up business networking events in Leamington, Cheltenham and Gloucester.

After 10 years the Forum format has grown tired and we felt it was time for a refresh and a re-brand! A new fresher logo and a new direction for the groups, while still keeping the same ethos.

We have over 200 members across the different regions, that we host events in, and the drive for the new Talk Business UK is to encourage people to move between these groups and meet and network with more businesses and organisations, hence we have dropped the regional group names. If you are a member of the old Stratford Business Forum group, you are now a member of ALL the Talk Business UK groups and able to attend all of the open events we host! 

We will continue to support the local charities, as we have been doing for the last 12 years, and the TALK CHARITY events will still be taking place, as will the very popular TALK PROPERTY get togethers. 

NEW Talk Business UNO launched in March 2022: Single Seat Networking across the region! We saw that people wanted to meet up again, but in smaller groups and really get to know each other. So UNO was launched as a way of people networking together twice a month with just ONE simple 'rule'... be there! Networking only works if you put in the time and effort and really build those relationships.

Last year we set up after work events for the young people starting out in business and have been amazed at the positive energy that has come from those events. 

We hope to relaunch the annual afternoon tea networking event in London, in the Members’ Dining room at the Houses of Parliament, and we still have a close connection with the MP’s in the local area and facilitate business lunches for our members with the these MP’s. 

All our social media channels have been amalgamated and simplified into ONE with our FaceBook Page, Twitter account and new Instagram account all being found under the @TalkBusinessUK name. Please make sure you refollow our NEW Twitter account where we post event information and updates.

If you are not sure which membership package would suit your business, then please contact us to discuss your options.
