Beckenham Business Association chairman - 'businesses can showcase the work they do'
Local start-up and small and medium businesses are invited to the first ever Beckhemham Business Day on Wednesday, September 7.
The new networking event is organised by the Beckhenham Business Association, a voluntary organisation run by local retailers and businesses who aim to boost trade in the town.
A speed networking event to encourage businsses to share their knowledge and expertise will kick off the day at 9am, where the Mayor of Bromley, Cllr Ian Payne, will also appear for a Q&A session.
Beckenham Business Association chair, Jackie Grounsell, said: “There are lots of great local businesses in the town who can finally showcase the great work that they do. Hopefully the event will raise awareness of what opportunities are around as well as providing support through networking and talks.
“The day is open for businesses in Beckenham and beyond, as well as anyone who feels the event is relevant to them.”
The event will cost £25 to attend, while Beckenham Business Association Members can enjoy the day for free.
A charity raffle will also be held with all proceeds raised going to Food+Bromley, a charity that redistributes surplus food and goods from the borough’s businesses to those in need.
