Events for businesses

TWO business events organised by the Henley Partnership will take place next week.

TWO business events organised by the Henley Partnership will take place next week.

On Monday, any local business involved in the house and home sector is invited to Hotel du Vin in New Street for “fizz and canapés” from 5.30pm to 7pm.

Julie Perigo, who chairs the partnership, says: “Anyone from architects and real estate to interior designers, decorators, landscape gardeners and conveyancers is invited.

“We’ve set it up so that businesses in that field can broaden their own networks and, far from worrying about competition, can concentrate on new connections to build business and even look at joint marketing opportunities.

“These affinity group sessions are very popular and successful in other market towns, so we felt it was time that Henley had one.”

On Tuesday, the partnership’s latest quarterly evening event will take place at Henley Hockey Club from 6pm to 8pm. It is open to all businesses and other organisations.

The partnerhip is also revamping its monthly “third Thursday” networking events.

Ms Perigo said: “We’ll be announcing a new venue for July onwards and focusing on the ‘partnering with Henley’ aspect. Henley already has some great business networking events, so we want our monthly lunchtimes to complement them.

“We always get a fascinating cross-section coming along — business people, sports people, councillors, arts, charities etc. That sort of camaraderie and information-sharing is very important to a town in recessionary times like these.”
