Breakfasts start at 7am and finish by 9am (although you are always welcome to stay and network as long as you like afterwards). Each breakfast starts with networking on arrival, followed by a sit down breakfast, announcements, our cameo speaker and finally our guest speaker presentation.
Occasionally we have a special evening workshop or seminar, but generally we are a breakfast club.
We hold breakfasts each month from February to August, October and November, a special luncheon in September and a Christmas party in December. We do not have an event in January.
