LOCAL business owners are being invited to broaden their networks and seek out potential new clients and suppliers at a series of networking events in Barry.
The fortnightly events, named Vale Business Breakfast, aim to facilitate effective and friendly business networking for businesses in and around the Vale of Glamorgan.
Vale Business Breakfast was established by Orbits IT who recognised a need for effective and productive networking outside of the city centre.
Jim Lewington from Orbits IT says: "We strongly believe in working with local companies and having attended many networking events in Swansea, Cardiff and further afield we struggled to meet like-minded businesses from the Vale. From there the Vale Business Breakfast was born and has seen Vale based companies work together, share ideas and develop their businesses."
Local freelancer Sarah Jones, owner of Smart Desk Business Services, says the events have helped her to establish her new business, she commented: "I've found the Vale Business Breakfast to be an ideal way to meet a diverse range of businesses from the local area all in one place. Its put me in touch with contacts I wouldn't have otherwise met. Its really helped get my business off the ground.
Vale Business Breakfast is held every fortnight on Tuesday mornings at The Brewers Fayre, Barry Waterfront from 8.30-10am. Entry is £10 per person and includes breakfast, tea and coffee. Free parking is available.
