All meetings are held at the Hawkstone Park Hotel, Weston-under-Redcastle – just off the A49 between Shrewsbury and Whitchurch in the Business Centre of the Golf Centre. Find Hawkstone Park Hotel location here. Meetings start at 8.00 am, with coffee and tea available from 7.50am
At each meeting all those attending have the opportunity to speak for 1 minute (guests on their first meeting have 2 minutes). In addition, one member will provide a 10 minute presentation allowing them time to introduce themselves and explain more about their business. And there is plenty of time for networking! Occasional special events are detailed below.
Guests are very welcome and can attend up to two meetings before making a decision as to whether or not to join INC. The cost of guest attendance is £12.50 which includes a breakfast of a bacon or veggie bap, plus tea and coffee. Our current membership fee is very reasonable at only £21 per month, which includes breakfast, plus a one-off joining fee of £50. To visit please contact the secretary to let us know and you will be assured of a warm welcome.
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!
