Business networking groups, Shout Network and Central Lancashire Business Club (CLBC), have joined forces to launch an evening networking event.

Already well established with 17 networking groups across Lancashire, Shout Network have taken the reins of Central Lancashire Business Club and established their first evening group for networkers across the region.

Known as Shout Central Lancashire Business club, the meetings will be monthly, open to all, and fees will be on a “pay per meet” basis. Unlike the regular Shout Network meetings, Shout CLBC won’t be single sector only and membership is not required to attend.

The format of the meetings is structured, but relaxed. Delegates sit at a table in a horseshoe or boardroom configuration and start by sharing good news and thanks for business referrals. Each delegate then promotes their business with a 60 second “shout out”. After a break, one member gives a 10 minute presentation about their business. The rest of the time is spent networking. The meeting is chaired by a member of the group with a member of the Shout team always in attendance.

The CLBC was established originally as the Chorley Business Club in 1984 to promote local trading, good business practices and collaboration with other business groups.

Please Note: This event is not part of the SHOUT Network membership, a £10 fee is payable per event attended. Booking in advance is essential.
