    I hope this is the right place to post this - Oxford is down as central southern England which puts me in a bit of a pickle when trying to choose the right regional forum!

    Anyway, I've moved down here from way up North in Scotland - and I wondered if anyone knew of any good networking events I could go to around here?

    Working from home as a content marketer can get a bit quiet (as you may well know, laptops aren't the best company) so would love to meet some knew faces :)

    Thanks for any tips.

    Witney has the Witney big breakfast, Witney is <15 mins from Oxford

    4Networking have a big presence in Oxfordshire with meetings in Witney, Oxford and a Bicester to name a few. BNI also have a big ish presence too.

    4Networking have meetings across the UK so should have something near you, if you google "town name business networking" it will give you a good idea of what is around your area plus also look into stuff such as the chamber of commerce who will do networking events.

    What did Oxford do wrong? :eek:

    Thanks for the tips though @Faevilangel - I'll definitely check out the Witney breakfast!

    There used to be an oxford meeting as I went along once, unfortunately it seems numbers dropped and wasn't viable to keep going or they struggled for venues (as 4N has a very strict pricing policy, they rely on "cheap" places to hire for their meetings.

    I haven't been in 4N for a while now but seems that Oxfordshire has really struggled recently.

    Yep, it certainly looks that way - my guess is it's also super hard to find anywhere cheap to hire in Oxford!

    Thanks again for the tips though, much appreciated.
