    Hi I've just rejoined again as a full member. Why? Well because we are expanding our business and need to get much more into business networking, and we feel that UKBusinessForums is one of the best places to meet potential new customers and suppliers.

    Our core business hasn't changed, we still offer high quality commercial software development and business system integration services, but our specialisation is still in business process workflow, data capture and document management systems.

    What are looking for at the moment are the best b2b networking groups in the East Anglia area, so any recommendations are much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Thanks Adam and Martin,

    No I won't be leaving again! We are on a mission now to really get our name out there as a high quality business that provides excellent solutions to businesses.

    It is quite amazing with the internet being so vast, that there are only really a few quality places for businesses to interact. It's sometimes like wanting to watch TV with 1000 channels, and nothing good is on! I hope this time around, UKBusinessForums will help us, of course we have to engage with others, and that is the main reason why I am back :)

    Hi, welcome back!!

    I'm from Maldon, Essex

    There are quite a few networking groups around the Essex area. There is the Federation of Small Businesses (they also offer free networking events and workshops etc), Essex Business Network, BNI... Can always do a search on google. Here is a good site: http://www.findnetworkingevents.com/in/essex/

    Hope this helps.

    Take care

    Julie

    Hi Marc,

    I'm also based in Colchester!

    There is also this magazine that offers local businesses the chance to connect with each other, as well as meetings that take place from time to time :)

    Thanks,

    We are based in Langham, just North of Colchester proper. Our Managing Director, Steve Austin heads up the 4Networking group which meets in Copdock if you don't mind a quick trip up the A12...

    Some people like 4networking some people hate it I would not suggest that it is worthwhile spending 2 hours of your day travelling to it though. There are loads of networking groups in Colchester without going to Ipswich.

    Try The Crown at Ardleigh 4.30pm on 7th Jan for free networking where you will meet lots of locals who will be able to tell you about other opportunities.

    Brilliant - thanks for that. Do you know who runs the one at The Crown, I'm busy on the 7th but could make another.

    Also, 4Networking is in Colchester now as well, they have their next meeting on 14th Jan at Frankie and Benny's at 8:00 am. I haven't been yet, but am considering it.

    Hi,
    I've been to 4Networking, i like it. I've also been to The Crown in Ardleigh and love it, being free of charge helps! Theres another free one at The Circle in town at 12.30, if you put it in google it comes up.
    I like The business womens network by Mandie Holgate and theres a breakfast cafe at The Barn Brassiere at Great Tey.
    Colchester connected is ok but is really busy with over 200 people attending!
    Hope you have enough to try out now, anymore then just email me.
    Kind regards
