What to expect from your first Thrive Connect
If you are new to Norfolk networking, or you’re looking for a fresh way to connect with other local businesses, come along to Thrive Connect.
We’re about to launch a brand new Thrive Connect meeting in the centre of Norwich, at the Britannia Café in the city’s Guildhall. It’s your chance to experience the Thrive community before you join, and discover how our members use trusted connections to grow their businesses. We know that arriving at a new place with people you haven’t met before can feel daunting. So, in a bid to ease any anxiety, we want to give you a glimpse of what to expect when you come to your first Connect. Fear not, this is Norfolk networking at its finest.
A warm welcome
The Thrive team pride themselves on making newcomers feel at ease from the off. You’ll be greeted by Lorna or Kay, and they’ll be on hand to answer any questions and guide you in the direction of refreshments. Feel free to let them know if there’s anyone in the room you’d like to be introduced to. You’ll find plenty of exciting and inspiring Norwich businesses there, and we’re happy to ensure you get the chance to meet the people you’d most like to connect with.
Quiz the Thrive community
Thrive Connect is an informal networking opportunity so there won’t be any public speaking to do. Instead, you’ll move around the room and speak to other guests and Thrive members. Do ask our members why they are in Thrive and how they use our trusted connection networking to grow. The Connect meetings are a great chance for members from all our groups to network together – and it’s one of our membership benefits that each Thriver can attend for free, and bring a guest. The good news for non-members is that they can also come twice for free, before having to pay the Thrive Connect meeting rate.
You have probably heard that Thrive is Norfolk networking done differently. We believe in developing genuine connections between our members and helping each other to grow. Thrive Connect will give you a flavour of the calibre of professionals in our network, and a taste of the opportunities connecting with them could bring you. We’ve worked hard to create a vibrant, inspiring membership of quality professionals. Be a part of this great Norfolk business community.
Where to connect
Every month you have the choice of two Thrive Connect meetings.
