Business Biscotti - Networking Group

 
Wed 27 Jul 2011

Business Biscotti is a straightforward and effective way to network both online and in person and it’s free with no huge membership fees or costs. Open to all types of businesses Business Biscotti was set up by business owner Sue Reeves who saw a niche for networking accessible to all. 

“Through Business Biscotti you can find potential clients, business partners and business opportunities and expand your business network both online and at any Biscotti venue. There is also the opportunity to contribute and share content, create and join other business groups,” explains Reeves. 

Since its launch Business Biscotti has opened 51 groups in 15 counties with 25 due to open soon. A huge community based website has been created at www.businessbiscotti.co.uk and within the space of less than a year has grown to over 1300 members, with over 1.5 million hits per month. 

According to Sue Reeves, Business Biscotti is unlike any other networking group. Monthly meetings are held at venues that support the Business Biscotti philosophy of giving something back to the local community. These include coffee shops, hotels and garden centres. 

No booking is needed and no speeches made.  Businesses and entrepreneurs in the local area are invited to just drop in and network – FREE with no cost other than a £3 contribution towards free flowing tea and coffee. There is no obligation to attend and networkers can turn up and leave when they like – helping to make effective use of time for everyone!  Each group has two ambassadors who act as hosts and make all the necessary arrangements and act as facilitators for visitors, a service so far appreciated at current sessions. 

The Milton Keynes Business Biscotti Ambassador is Yvonne Gurney, “This area has a diverse and exciting business feel with a dynamic entrepreneurial spirit. There are of course many networking groups in Milton Keynes; however Business Biscotti offers a straightforward and relaxed environment facilitated to harbour effective networking for all types of professions. Whether you are a seasoned networker or a first timer, this group which will take place every month at different venues at The Hub, will welcome you and help you make the most of your time.” 

Carolyn Jardine, Jardine Michelson Public Relations adds: “The Hub is delighted to be hosting The Milton Keynes Business Biscotti and visitors can be assured of a warm welcome. Set in the heart of the business district, The Hub’s diverse range of venues will offer visitors an opportunity to enjoy networking in a different environment each month.”
