Networking hub creates £1m of leads in five years

Members of a networking group in Market Harborough are celebrating the group’s fifth anniversary.

The Working Breakfast group, which meets weekly at The Angel Hotel in High Street, in town, has passed on leads generating more than £1million during its time together, the group said.

The hub of 20 Harborough area businesses has now passed more than 10,000 leads for each other and are also the instigators behind the successful Business Agenda meetings which run each month at The Harborough Innovation Centre and feature a host of interesting speakers.

Graham Sayles, from Omniprint, of Nithsdale Avenue, Market Harborough, and who has been an active member of then group since its launch, said: “Working Breakfast plays an important part of my working week.

“It’s a great opportunity not just to develop new leads but to find out how other local businesses are doing.

“It’s reassuring to know that you are not alone in tackling issues.”

The group meet at The Angel Hotel from 7am until 8.30pm every Wednesday morning. It is a non-profit-making networking group based around new business generation, advice, support and friendship.

Recently-appointed chairman Steve Compton, from Harborough-based oven cleaning company The Clean Team, has been a member of Working Breakfast for the past three years.

He said: “Working Breakfast is a great group for local companies or business owners like myself who are looking for new business and advice from other business owners.”

New members are welcome and the first two visits are free, which includes a cooked English breakfast.
