When Do The Very Early Lunch Club Meetings Take Place?
Breakfast meetings usually take place on the first Friday of the month at Anglesey Abbey, Lode, between Newmarket and Cambridge. The meetings occasionally move to avoid key holiday periods, etc. Please email The Very Early Lunch Club at Cambridge@thebestof.co.uk to reserve your seat.
Who attends the meetings?
Attendees are likely to be business owners or directors, business development or marketing managers and other key decision makers from a broad cross section of industries, based in the Cambridge and Newmarket area. We do not limit the number of representatives from one industry because we believe that each business is unique.
How will the group develop over time?
We want the group to grow The Very Early Lunch Club to be the premier business support and networking club in the Cambridge and Newmarket areas. This is to include business people from all sectors desiring to grow their businesses, including professionals, large and small business owners, sales people, executives, managers and non-profit representatives.
Please remember to invite guests to attend because increasing the size of the group will ultimately mean that each member of the group should be able to find suppliers, clients and business allies amongst the group.
What is different about the VELC?
• We don't charge a membership fee
• There is no requirement to attend every meeting
• If you can't make a meeting you don't have to send a substitute
• You can bring guests along at any time
• There is no obligatory referral scheme - referrals are willingly offered
Don't get stuck in a rut...
Unlike some business support and networking organisations, The Very Early Lunch Clubs loves table hopping...
You move tables three times in order to meet more people over breakfast...
Who will hold the key to that million pound referral?

"...I would certainly recommend it to people who are interested in learning and expanding their own business."

"The Very Early Lunch Club succeeds in combining a well organised, professional meeting without being too formal."
Philippa Hull - Hot Desk
"I'm just writing a quick note to say thank you for putting on such a good event today. I've been to quite a few networking meetings recently and was starting to feel a little jaded. The Very Early Lunch Club was a refreshing change and the mixture of people was excellent. The venue was also of a high quality. I'm looking forward to the breakfast barbeque!"
