Chester business networking group still going strong 10 years on

CHESTER networking group Novus Young Professionals has started the New Year by announcing their next meeting on February 9 and expanding horizons nationally.

Novus turns 10 years old during 2012 and co-founder Jane Harrad-Roberts has seen many networking organisations come and go in the city in that time.

She said: “They all meet different needs in terms of their focus, venues, timing, formality and costs.

“Novus is a success because it doesn’t meet too regularly, varies the venues and timings and has great speakers to add a business benefit.

“We were conceived from the remains of Chester Young Professionals and now it’s our turn to be reborn.”

The next event is on Thursday, February 9, at the Ring O’Bells in Christleton, 5.30 for 6pm.

The theme is Meet the Press and attendees will include representatives from Cheshire Life, EN Magazine, Trinity Mirror and NWN Media.

Places are £20 bookable on the Mussel Club website at www.themusselclub.com. This includes a glass of wine, canapés and a donation to Children Today and the NSPCC through the NSPCC Chester Business Board, of which Jane is a member.
