What is First Friday Network?

The First Friday Network is a monthly free business networking event held on various Fridays with meetings across the country, including: East Sussex, West Sussex, Surrey, Kent and Hampshire. To find out when a meeting is happening in your area click the links (below). All the networks are linked but are run by local business people. Serving the business community by way of offering a venue to network, promote and exchange ideas.

Why should you network?

The value of networking is now widely accepted. Most businesses realise that word-of-mouth recommendation is by far the best way to gain new business. If you are looking for new customers, new suppliers or merely want to meet and chat with other business people to share experiences, talk about your recent successes or discuss mutual problems, then bring some business cards, come along and network at a relaxed and friendly event.

What they say about First Friday

“As someone who recognised the value of business networking, I was looking for a group in my home town which didn’t involve large fees, sit down meals or heavy commitments. When I came across the First Friday Network, I felt it was a model that could work well in Lewes.”
Robin Houghton, EggBox Marketing
