A NEW CORNISH PARTNERSHIP WITH THE FSB
As many of us small business owners know, Cornwall is a great hub when you’re running your own company. The SME community is vibrant and friendly and there are plenty of people on hand if you need advice or people who can refer your services on. Perhaps most importantly, you’ll build relationships with great people who end up sharing your journey as you go through the highs – and lows – of running your own business.
That helpful and friendly community has been the foundation of a new partnership between Cornish Partnerships and the Federation of Small Business (FSB). Once a month, Cornish Partnership events will be held in Association with the FSB – meaning the two organisations can broaden their links and help businesses build new relationships with companies that otherwise they may not have come into contact with.
The idea is beautifully simple but effective. We recognise that people coming to our events are busy people. By encouraging the two networks to come together we’re able to keep things fresh and engaging – making the most out of everybody’s time. If you’re not already an FSB member you’ll also benefit from some special events on business skills, which are open to anyone who is interested.
The new partnership starts in June with a Cornish Partnerships open house event on 21st at the Victoria Inn, Roche. It will involve a regular ‘Roving Connect’ networking event that takes place on the 2nd Thursday of every month and a new static event on the 1st Thursday of each month.
The main thing is that this is a relaxed network where all are welcome. You can leave the suit at home if you want to – this isn’t a stuffy networking experience – it’s simply about opening doors to anyone who wants to come along, meet new folk and chat about their business.
