ebn has a ball for local charities.

Businesses from across the county came together on November 24th, when one of the county's top business networking organisations held their first charity ball. The event was held at the Ivy Hill Hotel in Chelmsford and was attended by over 100 ebn (Effective Business Network) members and their guests.

The event was set up to support 5 local charities; Farleigh Hospice, Havens Hospice, SNAP, Age UK Essex, and Dancing Giraffe.

The evening started with welcome drinks and a greeting from ebn's Managing Director Glenys Chatterley and Heart Essex presenter Su Harrison. Guests were then treated to a lovely 3 course meal before the fund raising really began.

The fund raising started with a chance to win a barrow of booze, yes an actual wheel barrow full of booze! The room went silent as Su announced the winner, followed by lots of cheers and groans.

This was followed by a raffle and an auction, which included a Jaguar for the weekend, and a spa day, to name just a couple.

This is when the party really started, the DJ had everyone up and dancing, and there was even a spontaneous Zumba lesson at one point, because what ball isn't complete without a bit of Zumba?

Glenys Chatterley said; "The event proved extremely successful, and we were well looked after by the staff. We managed to raise over £4000 pounds for the charities, and have a fabulous night too.

"Everyone made such a great effort, and I'm so grateful to everyone that sponsored and supported this event, including my networking members. Each of our ebn networking groups support a local charity; the members represent businesses based in the local community, so they want to support that community."

ebn has 17 Groups across Essex, Herts, and Kent, and more information is available at www.ebn.uk.com.

ebn Charity Ball

Hello
We're throwing a party! Would you like to join us?
Every now and then you need an occasion to dress up and enjoy a really good meal with like-minded people. That's what we're doing on 24th November at the Ivy Hill Hotel (Chelmsford) and if you and your partner, best friend or business colleague, would like to come all you have to do is drop me an email or give me a call.

There's a three-course meal and there'll be dancing ...

...

If dancing's not your thing, what about posing for the paparazzi? There'll be a photobooth where you can get your snap with friends and only you decide how crazy the picture will be - there'll be props, I'm saying no more!

The best part of it is that it's affordable - just £55 per person - and we'll be supporting local charities: Farleigh Hospice, Havens Hospice, Dancing Giraffe, SNAP and Age UK Essex.

Go on, get your best kit out and join the party.

Call me on 07780 666726 to book your tickets, or email me at Glenys@ebn.uk.com to let me know how many tickets you would like

Networking business scores hole in one at networking golf day

09-10-2017

Networking businesses were quick off the tee when one of the county's top business networking groups held its third annual Charity Golf Day at The Burstead Golf Club in Little Burstead.

The Managing Director of ebn (Effective Business Network), Glenys Chatterley, said: "At ebn, we believe that business networking is about more than just generating leads for other businesses in each Group; there needs to be a proper relationship between business owners if they are to make a good, personal recommendation to their own network.

"Each of our 17 ebn Groups in Essex, Herts, and Kent has a chosen charity which members support in different ways, and the idea of a Charity Golf Day came from a number of Groups.

"Our third such event took place at The Burstead Golf Club and both ebn members and non-members attended.

"The event proved extremely successful, and we were well looked after by the golf club staff, which is why we have decided to make this an annual event.

"The winner of the trophy was John Holliday of Pocknells LLP, but the real winners were all those taking part, as they cemented good business relations with the other golfers and the charity The Farleigh Hospice, which benefitted from money raised at the event."

Additional information about our Groups, and ebn events, is available at www.ebn.uk.com.

20-06-2017

Release Date: 20.06.17

Businesses from across the local counties came together this week, when one of the top Essex business networking organisations held its third corporate cricket day. The event was held at Essex County Cricket Club and was attended by over 80 ebn (Effective Business Network) members and their guests.

The Managing Director of ebn, Glenys Chatterley, said: "The event proved extremely successful, and we were well looked after by the staff. Members enjoyed lovely surroundings and front row seats to the cricket.


"This event brought together ebn members and their guests from all 15 of our Groups.

"At ebn, we believe that business networking is about more than just generating leads for other businesses in each Group, as there needs to be a proper relationship between business owners if they are to make good, personal recommendations to their own networks."

Sara Barnes, of E J Coombs Solicitors in Danbury and ebn's Group Director of the Baddow Group, said: "This event was really useful for networking – not only did we get to make contact with ebn members from other Groups and in other counties, but we met their personal contacts, too.

"Each Group is made up of representatives of local businesses and we meet every two weeks to support each other, share business knowledge and help generate business for each other, and this type of event allows an even wider collaboration between members.
