Our next Double Whammy Networking event is sponsored by Jardine Motors and will be held at their Lancaster Toyota dealership, Arterial Road Rayleigh on 6th July. This is another evening event, so do come and join us for great networking, refreshments (buffet, hot and cold drinks) - and the chance to drive a brand new Toyota for a weekend!  

This is a business networking event and your opportunity to meet 50 - 60 local businesses. A list of delegates will be sent out the day before the event to help you maximise your networking. Do make sure you bring plenty of business cards and a name badge.

They'll be a few short presentations but mostly it will be relaxed free flow networking. Tickets are only £10 each and as the event is being sponsored by Jardine Motors £8 of each ticket sale goes to our charity pot. If you really can't make it, you can still make a donation via the booking link. 100% of all donations will go to the charity pot to support, on this occasion, Whizz Kidz and Little Havens.

Book Now to enjoy great networking that also supports these wonderful charities.

What a pleasant way to spend the evening:

  • networking to help grow your business;
  • plenty to eat and drink;
  • All this - and supporting the local community at the same time just by booking a ticket! There will be an optional '5 for 5' card draw which includes the chance to drive a new Toyota for a weekend, but no auctions or raffles on the day.
