UPDATE 27th March 2020
I have decided to CANCEL our planned networking meetings until further notice due to the threat of the Coronavirus and the updated government advice on the matter.
Richard Peckham (Chair of Business Builders)
Like many other local organisations, we thought we should offer some guidance in relation to the ongoing spread of the Coronavirus as part of our duty of care to all our Business Builders associates.
We fully support current Government advice. Public Health England (PHE) recommends that the following general cold and flu precautions are taken to help prevent people from catching and spreading COVID-19:
- cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze. Catch it, Bin it, Kill it!
- put used tissues in the bin straight away
- wash your hands with soap and water often – use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
- try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell
- clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
- do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
If you are worried about symptoms, please call NHS 111. Do not go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment.
Face masks for the general public are not recommended to protect from infection, as there is no evidence of benefit from their use outside healthcare environments.
Please assess your own health prior to visiting our Business Builders meetings. We kindly ask that you do not attend if you are experiencing any symptoms of the virus.
For more information and the Government’s action plan go here.
More information for businesses is available on the Gov.uk website here.
Business Networking in Fareham and Langstone
Business Builders welcomes all business owners to structured, yet informal, breakfast meetings held regularly at Fareham and Langstone. Our purpose is to share ideas and expertise from a wide variety of markets and put those ideas into practice helping us to reach our business goals. We also have some fun along the way!
Business Builders was founded in 2011 by Malcolm Archibald. An ardent networker, he was often left disappointed by the structure and forced antics of myriad networks he attended over a number of years. Business Builders was formed with a core of like minded business owners who were keen to network in a friendly, straightforward, no-strings-attached way, being allowed to form business alliances with people they met, liked, knew and trusted.
Now chaired by Richard Peckham, there are over 700 businesses on our Business Builders LinkedIn Group and more than 500 on the Business Builders Facebook Group with typically over 30 attending every meeting. It makes for a truly dynamic meeting with an opportunity for everyone to pitch their businesses, enjoy open networking over a hearty meal and regular relevant presentations from our guest speakers.
Details of all our meetings are included in our Events section.
Carry on networking…
Remember that you can use our Facebook and LinkedIn groups to continue your networking with the other Business Builders Associates all through the week between meetings. Take a look now and see what is happening, just click on the buttons.
