Join us for business over lunch


First Friday Petersfield is pleased to be at its regular venue, the Folly Upstairs

First Friday networking – 31 March 2023, 12-2pm, at the Folly Upstairs

Join us on the last Friday of March when to offer you, once again, good company, good food and the opportunity to network with local businesses. .

We continue with a bi-monthly format but are bringing the meeting forward by a week to miss the bank holiday, hence we meet on 31 March.

A light–hearted look at how ’we’ the great British public ‘work’

After lunch this month we be hearing from Management Consultant and Business Coach Neil Hawkins who will be exploring the British Psyche and taking a light-hearted look at how ‘we’, the British public, like to be spoken to (or not!) and react.

You can expect him to present a number of real world scenarios demonstrating some of our classic British traits and how to manage these in our working lives.

The First Friday format

First Friday gives you time to catch up with people you know, time to make introductions, and to start meaningful conversations. We can even send invitations on your behalf if there’s someone you specifically wish to meet.

When we sit for lunch the conversations you’ve started develop as we enjoy the wonderful food at the Folly (yes, they cater for vegan, GF and other needs!).

The meeting closes at 14:00.

The price remains £22.50 per person, including lunch and coffee.

We look forward to meeting you!
