WELCOME TO REAL NETWORKING

Real Networking is a friendly and supportive group of self-employed people.

We meet regularly to connect, collaborate, inspire, learn and laugh.
The Real Networking community is extremely diverse with over 2200 members and we have held over 160 meetings since establishing in 2018.

We have returned to our "in person" meetings with meetings taking place in Thorpe, Bracknell and Woking. Please click the booking link below to find out more and get in touch if you have any questions!

At Real Networking we believe the best way to grow your business is through real connections, real conversations, face to face. We meet regularly for business networking without the overhead of expensive memberships.

Until the recent Covid-19 restrictions we held face to face events monthly in Egham, Chertsey, Woking and Bracknell. While travel and social restrictions are in place we are continuing to offer effective and friendly networking at our Real Networking Online meetings.

Our meetings offer:

Please do invite a friend along so we can grow together.  We have a special ticket offer to bring a new guest!
