Our meetings are a mix of online events (free to attend) and face to face networking (where a small charge is usually applied to cover costs.)

We are a welcoming, informal networking group for senior executives, business owners, entrepreneurs, non-executive directors, interim managers, consultants, coaches and self-employed professionals. We keep up to date through our monthly speakers and exchange information, expertise and opportunities through our members’ broadcast system.  We also have a number of Special Interest Groups where you can exchange information and discuss in small groups.
