In times when business can be hard to find for some sectors in Grimsby, some are using local networking opportunities such as the one held at the The Europarc Innovation Centre.
Business Generation Group Grimsby or ‘BGG’ is a weekly breakfast meet held every Friday morning from 7:30am till 9:00am at The Europarc Innovation Centre in Grimsby.
On their website they describe themselves to be a great way to make friends, contacts and introduce business.. They go on to say unlike many other networking groups the Business Generation Group is not like an army drill or to be high pressured.
“We do not demand that members bring a piece of business every week. We are far more interested in high quality, qualified referrals that have a high probability of generating business for the recipient.”
