The launch event for a new monthly networking event in Market Harborough companies has proved an unexpected success with 48 attending as well as the host companies. The first ‘Business Lunch at Timo’ took place on St Mary’s Road, Market Harborough and was hosted by Brian Wrigley of MP Growth and Clare Elsby of Elsby & Co, Chartered Accountants and Specialist Business Advisors.

The aim of the event was to bring together local business organisers at an old fashioned networking event which offered a chance to meet and get to know new people over a two course lunch.

“I was delighted with the high attendance – it was great to see so many business people in Market Harborough support this new monthly event. The restaurant did a great job at catering for us all and there was a real buzz in the room. We are already looking forward to the next one taking place there on 13th March,” says Clare of Elsby & Co.

One of the attendees, Danny Kamarin commented “I haven’t been to many networking events in recent years but after feeling a little apprehensive initially, I thoroughly enjoyed meeting new people as well as the food.  I even won a bottle of wine.”

Brian Wrigley of MP Growth has been running similar lunchtime networking events in Northampton for several years. However, this is the first one to take place in Market Harborough and he has joined forces with local business Elsby & Co to host it.
