Hampshire Business Networking Group Meets At Army Flying Museum

MORE than 30 business and charity professionals from across Hampshire came together at the Army Flying Museum to network. The event, held on Friday, December 8, was Hampshire Business Networking’s highly anticipated Christmas meet-up.

A tasty and nutritious breakfast (and fabulous mince pies) provided by local CIC, Munch, fuelled the conversation between guests, with discussion points led by host Andy McKee. His choice of air horn to signal it was time to circulate around the group certainly kept everyone on their toes.

Guests were then treated to a festive quiz hosted by Roger Walker, chief experience officer at Experience Hampshire. The winning team enjoyed a game of ‘Heads or Tails’ to decide on an overall winner. Gemma Warren, of Beautiful Client Comms, said: “It was a great way to round up a year of connection and collaboration between members and welcome new visitors.

“The dynamic and thriving community of entrepreneurs, professionals, and business owners meet monthly across Basingstoke, Winchester and Southampton.

“They also host monthly netwalking and coworking opportunities.” Started by Keith Douglas of Country Douglas Law at Hockley Golf Club in September 2019, the group regularly attracts 20 to 40 guests at each meeting.

The values of the group centre on conversations that build meaningful relationships whilst supporting local worthy causes. Run as a Not for Profit, Unincorporated Social Enterprise, any trading surplus goes to charity partners.

To date, Hampshire Business Networking has raised over £5,000 for charity partner, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance, and contributed over £3,000 to other local charities.

Gemma said: “Whether you’re a seasoned business leader or a budding entrepreneur, you’ll receive a warm and friendly welcome at any Hampshire Business Networking event.”
