North-east business people are being urged to start the New Year with a bang by attending a special networking event designed to support companies’ growth.
More than 50 people are expected to attend the Visitors Day, organised by BNI Focus, on Wednesday, February 1.
Firms ranging from web developers and painters to architects and lawyers meet every Wednesday at the Village Hotel, Prime Four Business Park in Kingswells, between 6:30am and 9am.
Launched in June 2016, the group is keen to welcome additional companies and entrepreneurs from across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire.
Katie Watters, secretary treasurer at BNI Focus and community and events fundraiser at Befriend A Child, said: “We’re excited to welcome a large number of diverse businesses to our Visitors Day and look forward to the chance to share some of the successes we have achieved as a group over the past few months.
“Since our launch last year the group has brought about terrific opportunities for greater collaboration amongst the members: building relationships, driving growth and helping local businesses achieve their goals.”
Places for the event are available at £10 per person, while tea, coffee and breakfast rolls will be served.
Anyone interested in attending should contact Katie Watters at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01224 210060 / 07813 402264.
