Your Business Community St Albans Breakfast Networking

Frustrated with the way existing business groups, federations and chambers were performing, in 2014 Ted Wigzell and Paul Kelly, both seasoned and experienced entrepreneurs and business owners,  decided to bring business support into the 21st century.  The creation of Your Business Community brings the best of what these other groups have to offer, but in a modern, contemporary format, with a focus on protecting and supporting members whilst endeavouring to help them grow and flourish.

When you start a business or have been running one for a while, you are probably very good at what you do, but what about everything else?  At Your Business Community, our goal is to let you focus on running your business whilst we focus on protecting and supporting you.

Join us at this new and exciting breakfast networking group every second Friday and enjoy the opportunity to start your day meeting new and exciting fellow entrepreneurs all of whom could be your next client, supplier, partner or friend!

Ticket prices start from £6 per person for each event, with all profits going to local homeless shelters in St Albans. Working in the property industry, we get paid to deal with property.
