Local businesses collaborate to offer events for Harborough professionals

Local businesses collaborate to offer events for Harborough professionalsA local accountancy practice is teaming up with a Harborough based business coach to lead a new series of events for the Market Harborough business community.

Elsby & Co is joining forces with Brian Wrigley of MP Growth to launch the events this month (February) which will take the form of a monthly business lunch and regular performance workshops. They are being run to complement the existing business advice services that both companies offer.

Clare Elsby, marketing director of Elsby & Co explains “We are excited to bring these events to Market Harborough and to give local business professionals an opportunity to work together to optimise the performance of their companies. There is so much that we in the business community can learn from each other and we wanted to provide a forum for learning and support that will be of real value to companies in the area.”

The first event is a business networking lunch which will be held at the Timo restaurant on St Mary’s Road in Market Harborough on Wednesday the 13th February. The event will run from 12.20pm to 2pm and will include a two course lunch and a drink on arrival, as well as the opportunity to meet local business people.

Brian Wrigley, who already runs two successful business lunch events in Northampton and Wellingborough says “It would be great to see local business people from Market Harborough there on the day.  It will be a traditional networking event in a relaxed and informal environment, with no commitment to join a networking group or present a 30 second sales pitch to the room!”

The cost to attend the event is £15 payable on the day and attendees are asked to book a place in advance via the Eventbrite webpage.

Elsby & Co and MP Growth are also launching a Growth Club at the Innovation Centre, which is the company’s Harborough base. The first meeting is on Thursday 21st February, from 9.30am to 10am. The first performance workshop is free and is open to anyone who wishes to attend, although numbers are limited to ten people to ensure that individuals gain maximum benefit from the group.

Having worked with businesses across the region for over seven years, we feel that the Growth Club will be the ideal forum for busy individuals, giving them the space and encouragement to work on growing their business alongside like-minded people,” comments Clare. “The element of group accountability should ensure that attendees are more likely to achieve their goals, both business and personal. Delegates will also have the chance to build strong bonds with the other members of the group.”

Anyone who is interested in attending either events or who would like more information should contact Clare Elsby of Elsby & Co on 01858 41 42 55 or email clare@elsbyandco.co.uk. To book a place for the business networking lunch event visit the Eventbrite page at http://timofeb13.eventbrite.co.uk.
