A Year of Breakfasts… and Proof they work

Friday, 13th November 2015 proved to be an auspicious date. That was when Chiltern Chamber started up its breakfast meetings.

Well, we’re very happy to report that the breakfasts have thrived. A happy band of regular breakfast networkers meet twice a month, with others coming periodically, and new faces appearing regularly as word gets around. We average 20 or more per meeting nowadays, with breakfast on the second Friday of the month held in Chesham, and on the fourth Friday in Amersham.

Do they work? Yes they do!

Plenty of productive and profitable introductions have been made across the year. So for the breakfast closest to our anniversary, it was appropriate that we invited Ralph Hilsdon of Web-Clubs to present on behalf of Chiltern Silicon Valley.

Chiltern Silicon Valley represents the joining together of three local digital businesses into a marketing alliance.

Ralph explained that the genesis of the idea came as a result of the three partners (Managing Directors Anthony O’Sullivan, John Onion and Robert Hyde pictured right) bumping into each other at networking meetings such as Chiltern Chamber’s (are there any other??), and realising that their primary businesses are extraordinarily complementary:

  • Web-Clubs – Email Marketing
  • upriseUP – Search Marketing
  • IO42 – Website design and IT support

Putting these skills together, clients can benefit from a broad expertise to advise on the most effective form of marketing campaign, and the specialised experience to deliver it.
