Alton business networking

April 20 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Welcome to our Alton business networking meeting taking place in person at the fabulous Chawton House.

A typical Alton agenda includes…

  • Informal networking
  • A netwinning tip
  • One minute introductions
  • A speaker who this month is Nick Keith sharing some lessons from a number of authors
  • A business development session

Your meeting fee includes tea or coffee and some of Jill’s delicious homemade cake.

This is a warm and friendly meeting in a really supportive atmosphere. If you are at all worried about walking into a room of strangers, then please contact Jill and she will make it as easy as possible for you.

Meet your Group Leader Jill Aburrow

Jill is an HR Consultant and owner of Heartfelt HR. It will therefore come as no surprise that she has a passion for people. Kindness and compassion are her watch words. They are evident in everything she does.

Jill’s meetings are therefore always warm and friendly but they’re fun too. Her meetings are perfect for the inexperienced networker who may need a little encouragement to gain full benefit from the session. But they also work for the seasoned business owner. Why not join Jill today and spread the word about your business?

Meet your Speaker, Nick Keith

Nick is an editor, writer and businessman, for three years he was Sports Editor of the Times. Now he runs Best Business English helping words work harder for your business. His first book was Feel it like a Man, and he has recently published two Guru’s Guides… Winning at Copywriting and Winning at Novel Writing. He is currently co-authoring a murder mystery.

Our venue: Chawton House

As an inspiring venue for a business meeting Chawton House is hard to beat. Once the home of Jane Austen’s brother, Jane was a frequent visitor. It’s easy to transport yourself back into the world of Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park et al as you walk through the house.

Chawton House is now a centre for research and understanding of early women writers and stages a number of events. The house and gardens are open to visitors from 10-3.30 Wednesday to Sunday. At present booking is required. There is also a tearoom for light lunches or cake. Why not take a bit of time away from your day job to give yourself space to think and be inspired?

Chawton House is over 400 years old so disabled access is not straight forward. The room allocated to us is up a flight and a half of stairs. If this causes you a problem, please get in touch and we will try to negotiate a more accessible space.
