Businesses came together on Wednesday last week
Businesses from around Beckenham benefitted from a day of advice and networking last week.
The second Beckenham Business Day, held at The Bridge Bar on Wednesday, saw guest speakers discuss fundamental topics including generating clients, online marketing and website optimisation.
As well as business heads, Jane Beedle, finalist in last year’s Great British Bake Off, was at the event talking about her journey from busy mum to successful garden designer to the town’s very own baking celebrity.
Jackie Groundsell, from networking group 1230 ran networking sessions while Kat Webb, who runs the weekly guided tour In Ziggy’s Footsteps - The Walking Tour of David Bowie’s Beckenham, was MC for the day.
Organised by the Beckenham Business Association, the event managed to raise £106 for MindCare Dementia Support, providing care across Bromley and Lewisham.
The next event on the town’s business calendar is a breakfast meeting on September 21.
Beckenham Business Association events are free for members and first-time visitors, or £10 each for returning non-members. Annual membership costs just £25.
