Frequently Asked Questions
Joining a new group can be a little daunting. We’re proud of our friendly and inviting group and we urge you to give us a try. We have compiled a list of FAQ’s to help you. If you still have questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
How much does it cost?
There is a one-off £50 joining fee. Following that we charge a monthly subscription of £21.
This includes your breakfast rolls, tea and coffee at meetings and also incorporates a £1 a month donation to the Chair's charity.
Is my business suitable?
We welcome all businesses. In our club you'll find accountants, solicitors, linguists, photographers, graphic designers, tradespeople and more.
How often do you meet?
We meet fortnightly at 7.50am in the business centre at Hawkstone Park Hotel.
Am I expected to bring referrals?
Whilst it is always great to see referred business, we do not have an enforced referrals policy. We only want to see real business passed at our network club and would much rather you attended with no referrals, than didn't attend at all.
Who runs INC?
Our network club is a not for profit organisation run by the members, for the members. Each year at our AGM we elect a new Chair and committee to oversee the running of our club.
What is the format?
Every member is given 60 seconds to introduce their business or tell us their latest news. At each meeting one member is given the opportunity for a ten minute presentation which allows them to go in to more depth about their business, themselves, or a subject of their choosing.
At each meeting tea and coffee, a selection of fruit and breakfast rolls are available. We also pass referrals slips for any business transacted in the group - and one will win a bottle of wine!
I joined INC when I started my business in 2011. The club has meant introductions to many businesses I would otherwise have never met. A fantastic way to grow your business.
Having moved to the area, I joined INC to introduce my business to other Shropshire organisations. I find the group friendly, informative and varied and the charity fundraising is an excellent bonus.
As a founding member of the club it is a pleasure to see the varied businesses frequenting our networking group. INC really does feel like a group of friends and I couldn’t recommend it more!
