Chertsey Real Networking September 2021 (IN PERSON)


The Golden Grove

Ruxbury Road, Chertsey, KT16 9EN

Chertsey, Surrey, GB, KT16 9EN

Real Networking is a supportive group of self-employed people & small business owners. We connect, collaborate, learn and have fun together.

Real Networking meet regularly to connect, collaborate, inspire, learn and laugh. Our meetings are friendly, welcoming and fun. Many people who claim they “hate networking” love our meetings and have become part of the Real Networking family!

We believe the best way to grow our businesses is through real connections, real conversations, face to face; we know that together we can achieve more. Real Networking is business networking that works, without the overhead of expensive memberships. We offer:

  • An opportunity to meet and connect with like minded business people.
  • An environment that supports collaboration and referrals.
  • Regular talks and presentations from guest speakers on a wide variety of subjects.
  • A safe space for you to develop and practise your speaking skills, if you would like to.
  • Our Facebook group where you can connect and communicate outside of the meetings, and promote your business in regular posts to the group of 1,900+.

Our amazing Chertsey venue The Golden Grove offers great food so why not stay on for a lunch meeting?

There is parking in the pub car park at the front plus parking space along St Ann’s Road, just before the mini roundabout before the pub.

A few notes for on the day:

  1. We ask for a £2 per head contribution on the day direct to the venue to cover refreshments at our face to face meetings.
  2. We plan to hold the meeting outside so please dress accordingly, the seating area is covered and has heaters and we will work with the venue on the day if we need to make alternative arrangements in the event of extreme weather!
  3. Face to face meetings are subject to change in line with any changes to government guidelines relating to COVID restrictions, or in the event of any other forces outside of our control.

GUEST SPEAKER – Joanne McGowan of Get Ahead Surrey

This talk will practically explore how we can stop putting ourselves in the way of our business growth, reconnect with the why of our business and feel energised for the rest of the year. We’ll go through an exercise that can give you real clarity about what you should be spending your time on in your business and what you definitely shouldn’t be!
