Coffee Means Business Networking – North Walsham


40 business people are expected to attend North Walsham’s business networking event, Coffee Means Business on Friday 27th January. Genix, the business engagement specialists in Norfolk were commissioned by North Norfolk District Council in 2016 to hold regular business events and this will be the fourth Coffee Means Business Genix has hosted.

The event will be held at Scarborough Hill Country Inn, North Walsham from 9.30am until 11.30am. The aim is to give business owners the opportunity to chat over coffee, make new contacts and gain information to help them grow their enterprise.

“I’d encourage both new and established business people to come to Coffee Means Business.” Said Gary Parker who hosts the events, “It doesn’t matter if you’ve never been to anything like it before or you’re a start-up business.  The connections you’ll make will be highly beneficial to business growth.  The feedback has been extremely positive, the informality and friendliness of the format and there being no membership fees has been appreciated.

“We’re the affordable face of business networking charging just £2 per person, payable on arrival.”

North Norfolk District Council has appointed Genix to organise and host Coffee Means Business in the North Norfolk area as they could see there was a need for a regular networking opportunity for businesses which didn’t involve expensive membership fees.

In Norfolk Genix provides, free business advice sessions for established businesses and start-ups, subsidised business skills courses and events for ambitious small businesses and self-employed people.

Cllr Nigel Dixon, Cabinet Member for Business and Economic Development said: “I’m looking forward to this next event and would encourage businesses, whatever their size to come along on the 27th January.”

Alex Till, Chief Executive of Genix said, “ We’re very grateful for the support of North Norfolk District Council who understand the importance of helping businesses to grow ensuring future employment and apprenticeship opportunities for the area and increasing the prosperity of the county.
