We are pleased to be collaborating with Islington Chamber of Commerce on a speed networking event to connect local businesses and voluntary organisations.

Many smaller local businesses are keen to get involved in supporting their local community. This event is an opportunity for local businesses and local community organisations to introduce themselves using speed matching and to form relationships that can make a difference for Islington’s residents.

This event will be held at Voluntary Action Islington on Thursday morning 3rd March 10.30am to 12.30pm.

Islington Chamber of Commerce and Voluntary Action Islington are coming together for this event, inviting smaller businesses and voluntary organisations, to introduce themselves to each other and explore opportunities for making a difference for Islington’s residents by developing connections and working together. It is specifically aimed at smaller businesses and community organisations, who are often not in a position to be involved in larger corporate social responsibility initiatives.

The event will consist of an introduction, ‘speed networking’ and some general networking and discussion time.

Places for this event are limited to 12 from voluntary organisations and 12 from businesses. To get the most out of the event some preparation will be necessary and all participants will be asked to complete a short questionnaire before attending. Organisations might be offering opportunities to get involved with the activities of particular community groups, funds to support local initiatives, skilled volunteers, potential Board members, meeting or office spaces, publicity opportunities and more.

BOOK YOUR PLACE NOW: To apply for a place please email the name of your organisation or business, name and role of the person who would be interested in attending and email contact details to by Friday 12th February. We will then contact you to confirm your place and provide a short registration questionnaire to complete before the event.
