Business 1st - an independent business support and networking group in Lichfield that can help your business grow. Started fourteen years ago by nine local Lichfield businesses and still growing!

Business 1st

Are you setting up in the Lichfield area and looking for business support and networking opportunities?

Are you an established business who wants to grow your trade and your contacts in the Lichfield area?

At 6.45am every Thursday a network of local business people gather over breakfast. They chat, share stories and most importantly create business referrals for one another. The group is called Business 1st and has been meeting for 14 years.

They are a thriving independent business support and networking group, with over forty members attending every week and business referrals flying at such a rate that on average our members make £15 for each £1 that business membership costs them.

Our philosophy is that word of mouth is the best form of marketing. At our meetings we learn about each others' businesses, trade together and recommend each other to our own network of business and personal contacts.

New members are warmly welcomed, so what would make you get up at sunrise?

  • The chance to make, on average £15 for every £1 invested?
  • Like minded people to encourage, support and celebrate success with you?
  • Access to a network of local business opportunities?
  • Access to a network of trustworthy suppliers?
  • A self-managed networking group without cost or interference from a central body?
  • …Or maybe just the bacon and egg rolls?
