In this afternoon’s Twickenham Business Club Online Meetups, we were given vital advice for any small business, 24/7 help for those with mortgage related enquiries, a 25% discount at Bolney Wine Estate for NHS workers, why setting up and regularly updating Google My Business is key, and much more!

The session provided each attendee – on a one-by-one basis – the opportunity to talk about their businesses, share who their ideal clients are, an insightful industry insight, personal tips or company news, and give us a fun fact about themselves.

Following a successful launch with Network My Club members, bookings for upcoming meetups are now open to both members and non-members.
