130917_09Networking Chandler’s Ford is a business networking group based in the Chandler’s Ford and Eastleigh area. We meet fortnightly for breakfast to generate business referrals, share experiences, and maybe even to socialise a bit.

We meet at Fleming Park Leisure Centre, SO50 9NL. If you are looking for a friendly, effective and inexpensive business networking group around Chandler’s Ford, Eastleigh, Southampton or adjacent parts of south Hampshire our networking group could be just what you want.

Networking Chandler’s Ford launched four years ago with a core group of local business people who had been meeting at other networking groups.  We’re always looking to recruit more businesses who believe that there is an opportunity for a group which is more friendly and less costly than some of the well known ‘formula’ networking groups, whilst being more focussed on referrals than some of the less structured groups.

We offer exclusivity to our members, i.e. there is only one member for each type of business. In return members are expected to be committed to the group by turning up on a regular basis, by bringing prospective new members as visitors, and by actively seeking referrals for other members. Where we differ from other referral networks is that we do not apply pressure for every member to bring referrals every time we meet. In our experience of other more pressurized groups this just leads to poor quality referrals which simply waste everyones time.

Unlike other groups, we operate on a not for profit basis with minimal overheads and low joining fees.

If you’d like to get more business, meet new people and have a bit of fun, then come and take a look. You can read more about the practicalities of how we operate on our About Us page, you can find a list of our current members on the Members page, and if you would like to visit us to find out more about the kind of people we are, then please contact us.
