Do you run a local business in Eastleigh?

Whether you have a hyper local business or are a local representative of a larger business you will be welcome.  To book please click the Yes I’m Attending button below.

What happens at an Eastleigh Fabulous Business Networking meeting?

The agenda allows for a mix of informal and structured networking. We start with 20 minutes to half an hour of informal networking, so you get chance to meet everyone in the room. The timing allows you to drop the kids at school, deal with those urgent emails or even have a one to one meeting before you come along. If you’re not there spot on at 10.00a.m. it’s not a problem and you won’t be faced with walking in on a formal meeting at that point.

Attendees take their seats for the structured part of the meeting after about half an hour. The agenda typically includes

  • a netwinning tip (we believe that networking works hence the netwinning);
  • a business card and marketing material shuffle, remember to bring your cards and fliers so we get to know more about you
  • one-minute introductions from all attendees, do think what you would like us to understand about your business and what action you would like us to take
  • a speaker
  • a business development slot which might be a mini coaching session, business hot seat or one to ones. Jacqui often has a surprise up her sleeve to keep the meetings fresh and uplifting.

Introducing Eastleigh Fabulous Business Network’s Group Leader Jacqui McGinn.

Jacqui is a hypnotherapist, energy healer and coach. She’s also a qualified teacher, fluent in Japanese and plays the bag pipes! She’s currently writing her first book.

She draws on her many and wide-ranging interests to add variety and energy to the meetings. Why not visit one of her Eastleigh Business Networking meetings on held on the fourth Wednesday of each month (but please double check in December as the date will probably change because of Christmas)?

The Queen’s Head Eastleigh

Our lovely venue overlooks the Fishers Pond lake and is located on the B5334 Portsmouth Road. It serves food all day and has plenty of outside space as well as cosy interiors so is perfect for those one to one meetings that make business networking really effective.


Making Business Networking Events effective. This month’s business networking tip.

Remember that people rarely attend a business network meeting to buy but they are looking for people to do business with. Your ideal client may not be in the room at the networking event, but they may be known by the people who are. Focus on building relationships, help people to understand what you do, who makes an ideal client and what a good sale looks like for you. And get the same information from the people you meet. As the relationships build so will the leads.
