Handy Croissant is an independent business networking group that combines a friendly, good-humoured approach with an ethos of providing mutual support and collaboration as well as quality referrals. As a result, Handy Croissant is more than just a standard “networking group”.
1. Support is a critical component of the Handy Croissant offer. Our meeting presentation slots are not just glorified ads for the presenters; speakers are encouraged to deliver useful education and training in response to members’ needs.
2. Collaboration is also key and lots of business gets done by groups of complementary businesses.
3. Referrals are of course very important. However, we understand that you may not have a genuine referral every week. We won’t pressurise you; quality is more important than quantity in Handy Croissant.
Longevity - The fact that many of the founding members are still members today, more than 15 years on, is a real testament to the success of the group. Numerous long-standing collaboration partnerships have been formed and a great deal of business regularly takes place behind the scenes.
We currently use Zoom to meet weekly on Fridays at 08:00 and meetings finish at 09:00 or just after and are planning to return to informal face-to-face meetings at local venues in the High Wycombe area every second week.
Prior to COVID-19 we met at the Holiday Inn, Handy Cross, Junction 4 of the M40.
If you’d like to join one of our meetings please confirm by booking your place on our Eventbrite page below. The topic and agenda for the up and coming meeting are also provided on this link.
We really hope you’ll be able to attend and look forward to seeing you there. Remember to bring your breakfast!
