ABOUT TALK BUSINESS UKWith the current Covid-19 situation, we are obviously not holding our face-to-face networking meetings, but we are still there to support our members and have set up a diverse cross section of virtual meetings.
Stratford Business Forum was set up 10 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 have our first twice monthly Talk Business LOCAL, single seat NETWORKING group up and running very successfully in Warwick. We will continue to support the local charities, as we have been doing for the last 10 years, and the TALK CHARITY events will still be taking place, as will the very popular TALK PROPERTY get togethers.
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 still hold the annual afternoon tea networking event in London, in the Members’ Dining room at the Houses of Parliament, and 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.
