Networking is about creating associations and that is just what FSB Cornwall and networking group Cornish Partnerships are doing. By inviting their respective members to all of their events and opportunities to meet new clients, suppliers and sources of help and support, the two organisations are broadening horizons for local businesses.
Edward Chapman, Area Lead for FSB Cornwall said: “The idea is very simple and one we are very excited about. Once a month one of Cornish Partnerships [CP] events will be held specifically as “in Association” with FSB where we will support that event.
"We will also actively tell our members about this and all other CP events in our own event calendar that consists of a regular roving Connect networking event (2nd Thursday of each month), a new static event (1st Thursday of each month) at Heartlands and some special events on business skills and GDPR. CP will reciprocate.”
David Brock (or Brock as most will know him) of Cornish partnerships said: “I am delighted to be joining with FSB Cornwall in providing more networking opportunities for their members and some new opportunities for my own group.
"It’s a simple case of two great organisations working together to provide a service that anysmall business can easily join in with and not worry about it being too high brow. Just ordinary business folk getting together to see what they can do for each other and what they can learn. And you don’t have to wear a suit!”
The new association starts in June with a Cornish Partnerships open house event on 21st at the Victoria Inn, Roche. All other events can be found at listings on https://www.fsb.org.uk/regions/south-west and at https://www.cornishpartnerships.co.uk/events/ Allare welcome, just simply book online.
