The smarter way to network
Running a small business is always busy, but it can be lonely at times too. Sometimes it would be great to feel part of a bigger team.
But joining a network can be difficult. They can demand a lot of your time, and the pressure to refer business can add to your workload.
At The Oxfordshire Project, we network differently.
We focus on support and education, as well as business growth.
We’re not about short term sales, we’re about building long term connections, because this is the route to sustainable success.
With our 8 different monthly meetings around Oxfordshire, we provide flexibility to suit your busy lives,
variety to suit your enquiring minds,
and a community of smart, like-minded people, to help you and your business grow.
We host over 90 open networking meetings each year, in 8 different locations around Oxfordshire, and you are welcome to join whichever meeting works for you, in any given month. Meetings are informal, enjoyable gatherings in which you’ll have time to catch up with other attendees, talk to the group about your business, and listen to an expert talk on a subject of interest.
Our aim is to provide a positive, supportive and inspiring platform, for small business owners to learn, collaborate, and of course grow their business for the long term. We also provide a range of benefits to our members, designed to give them access to the expertise their business needs.
We have a range of membership packages, all of which include Member Benefits at no extra cost. These are designed to help you take your business forward and overcome challenges that you face, and they include IT support, financial guidance, business and personal coaching, strategic marketing advice and much much more.
You can get even more from our inspiring community through the Networking Focus events. These fortnightly evening meetings provide a confidential space in which members can benefit from the advice of other experts, access business support, share knowledge and create more opportunity for collaboration.
Our Scholarship Programme
Business has an important role to play in social change. Through our Scholarship Programme we support charities who are doing crucial work locally and internationally. Our network supports their efforts in making a difference by providing opportunities for our charities to develop business connections, opening new opportunities, helping to raise their profile.
