CLS Network Group is a free networking opportunity for businesses in Chester-le-Street and surrounding areas. The purpose of the group is to work together, support each other and make referrals. There is only one member per business sector and regular attendance of meetings is required.
We meet in a relaxed atmosphere, every other Wednesday lunch time, from 12.00 to 2pm. The meeting begins with individuals circulating freely and informal conversations.
We then take seats around the table and each member talks for 2 minutes to help others learn about their business and explain what type of individuals or companies they would welcome introductions to.
We also inform each other of news, events, and opportunities. Many of the members have embraced social media as a tool to keep up to date with each other’s activities and spread news rapidly to a wide audience.
Future plans include a website which will outline the purpose of the group and the guidelines for membership and attendance, for the benefit of potential new members. There will be a page dedicated to each member including information about services offered and featuring links to their website and social media platforms.
