Join us on the first Thursday of each month for informal networking (with refreshments!) and an inspiring guest speaker.

About this event

Our monthly networking series is back for 2022!

October's session: Financial advice for business owners and entrepreneurs

With Manchester Met's James Crawley and Atherton & Associates Wealth Management Ltd.

About the event

A financial plan helps forecast your ideas and then keeps you on track as your business matures. Learn how to form a good financial plan as we come together with Atherton & Associates Wealth Management, an agency that delivers comprehensive holistic advice to clients, looking at financial planning as a whole rather than just giving advice in one area!

In this session, you'll:

• learn some techniques to prepare a sustainable financial plan

• get a clear understanding through live benchmarking and valuation

• explore support available to help your business' finances

This will be a practical session exploring real and specific actions you can take to develop your business financial plan, help you map your future and to secure funding and investment.

You'll need to bring with you...

• a notebook

• an open mind

• and a sense of relentless determination!

Why Big Networking for Small Businesses?

We know that the best way to stay motivated as a business owner is to have a support structure around you.

After a few years of online meetings, we wanted to get back in the room and see some old friends and make some new ones, and build those key relationships.

Our sessions are a chance to have real conversations, build links and, most importantly, have fun.

What to expect...

At each session, you'll find a relaxed room full of old and new friends catching up over cups of tea and snacks!

Each month, you'll hear from a guest speaker who has launched their own business. You'll have time to meet your peers before and after the guest speaker. And you'll be able to find out about the fully funded business support on offer to help you grow your business, too.
