SUFFOLK enterprise agency Menta has announced it will continue its monthly business networking event, Coffee Means Business into 2017, due to the sponsorship by Menta Patron Box-it East, the local document storage company.
Held at Frankie & Benny’s in Haverhill on the last Thursday of each month the event was established in May 2016 and attracts businesses who network informally over coffee.
The next Coffee Means Business in the town will take place on Thursday 26th January from 9.30am until 11.30am and Tracy Faulkner of Haverhill-based Preview Property Services will give her top tips to being a landlord in the private rental market.
Victoria Raffell, who manages Menta’s serviced offices in Haverhill and hosts Coffee Means Business said: “I’m extremely pleased Coffee Means Business is proving to be such a success in our town. I’ve seen these events grow and local businesses make useful new contacts. It’s the New Year when every company takes a long hard look at how they’ll increase their customer base and profits during the coming 12 months and networking is a proven way of doing this.
“I’d encourage all business owners, however long they’ve been in business to come along. There are no membership fees, it costs just £2 on arrival and there is no need to book”
Clare Brooks, managing director of Box-it East said the company didn’t need convincing to get involved. She said, “Coffee Means Business is informal and friendly and agreeing to continue to sponsor was an easy decision.
“It’s a good way of meeting new people and building business relationships.”
MENTA is a not-for-profit organisation which has been supporting Suffolk businesses for over 33 years with business advice, courses and events.
