Heathrow Business Biscotti

15th July 2016

parkinn1Heathrow Biscotti meet on the 3rd Friday of each month at the Park Inn Heathrow, London, Bath Road, UB7 0DU – providing easy access from all directions.

Parking: please ensure that you enter your car registration details at the main hotel reception before attending the meeting.  Failure to do so, could result in a hefty parking fine.

You are invited to the next Heathrow Business Biscotti business networking event starting at 10.00am until 12.00pm.

The Event: Business Biscotti is what networking is all about – meeting and forming business relationships with like-minded people. We like to think we provide an antidote to formal networking.

At Biscotti you’ll find:
* It’s business networking for all!
* You can come and go when you like

There are no limits on who can attend:
* All professions and any number of the same
* Men & women welcome

We feel that open networking allows you to forge the relationships you need to do business with each other.  You make the contacts, we provide the environment.

Arrive at any time between 10.00am until 12.00pm and leave at your leisure. Because there is no formal start, finish or set agenda you can make it work for you.

It’s all about relationships and trust – building both takes time and effort but the rewards are limitless.  At Business Biscotti we are passionate about true networking.  Not just making lots of contacts and filling up your business card box, anyone can do that.  It’s about communication, trust and building relationships that lead to lasting and mutually rewarding business.

So put the date in your diary – come along and bring anyone you think will benefit. Just dip in and out between 10.00am until 12.00pm as you please.  The meeting and the philosophy are simple;   if you want to network, make contacts and forge business relationships in an informal environment try Business Biscotti.

Spelthorne Business Forum and Hounslow Chamber of Commerce EU Referendum Debate

16th June 2016

EU debate banner v2With the EU referendum campaign in full swing, so too is the scaremongering from both sides.

We are hosting a EU debate chaired by Stephen Fry, Chief Exec of Hounslow Chamber of Commerce, taking a reasoned look at the arguments for both ‘Leave’ and ‘Remain’. So far, many of the arguments for ‘Leave’ and ‘Remain’ have been underwhelming, cliched and accompanied  by dubious statistics. So, what are the best arguments that can be made by both campaigns?

SBF & HCC will bring together two leading local MP’s from both Labour & Conservative to bring you their best case for each side.

Seema Malhotra MP for Feltham & Heston will present the case for ‘Remain’, while Kwasi Kwarteng MP for Spelthorne, will outline the arguments for ‘Leave.’

SBF & HCC are taking a neutral stance in the referendum campaign. This debate will not promote an outcome in the referendum but we invite you to hear the best arguments on each side and make up your own mind.

There will be an opportunity to network with drinks & canapes at the end.

Please Register for the FREE event here
