Welcome to The Riverside Business Club
Business networking in Cheddar, Somerset
We have been established nine years and are one of the most successful business clubs in the South West.
We have based our format on the best ideas from a number of different breakfast clubs, but with a difference. Our relaxed atmosphere has attracted a wide range of business people who would never have previously considered joining a business club. There is no “hard sell” and there are no rules about being required to make referrals or bring in new members.
As a result our members now find themselves discussing business opportunities and links with other companies and individuals they have got to know and trust, both from Cheddar and surrounding towns and villages.
Our breakfast club meets fortnightly and our meetings start at 6.45am in the conservatory restaurant of the Riverside Inn, Cheddar.
We have a coffee and chat on arrival with breakfast starting at 7.15am. After breakfast, members have the chance to introduce themselves and can ask for a specific type of referral or explain a specific element of the work they undertake. A business card box circulates with members’ business cards.
There is then a short comfort break to recharge the coffee cups & arrange meetings before a final 10 minute presentation by a member on a specific area of their expertise.
Membership is open to local companies or individuals, one per category. We aim to provide an informal but effective structure that allows you to meet and discuss your business. Annual membership is £50 with breakfast costing £10 per meeting £1 of which goes to our adopted charity each year. For 2014 we are supporting Weston Hospicecare.
New members can come along as a guest for two meetings before deciding whether to join.
