A NETWORKING group has been launched to help firms mine a rich seam of new contacts.
The Business Network has been launched to cover Kirklees – following the success of a similar venture in Leeds – and is holding its first meeting on Thursday at the National Coal Mining Museum, near Grange Moor.
Organiser Caroline Coward said: “Despite the economic climate, there are a lot of good companies looking to make contacts to help them grow.
“The success of our Leeds group is partly down to the community we’ve developed there. Our members are well-connected, help each other out, offer advice and benefit from the connections they make.
“We are offering the same benefits to the vibrant business communities of Kirklees, Calderdale, Wakefield and Bradford and I’ve received strong interest from companies in the area.”
The first event will feature a business workshop on “Twitter For Business” by GREEN Communications followed by a networking lunch.
Richard Saward, commercial director at the museum, said: “I source a number of my suppliers from networking events, finding the best Yorkshires firms and making real business relationships. I’m looking forward to meeting the 80 or so businesses who will be experiencing our first class conference facilities so that I can establish some new contacts.”
