A Biig Hello
Business In Ilminster Group (BiiG) is a friendly weekly networking meeting that brings together a wide range of businesses in and around the Ilminster area in Somerset.
We’re committed to providing BiiG opportunities for our members, keeping our eyes and ears open for possible business leads, generating referrals, supporting their organisation and sharing experience.
Whether you’re an experienced networker or just starting up your business we’d be delighted to welcome you along to visit us and see what a BiiG opportunity awaits you.
We mean BiiG Business – here’s how it works
BiiG meet every Friday at The Shrubbery Hotel & Restaurant, Ilminster, just off the A303. We start at 7am giving members a chance to catch up, grab a coffee and welcome in any visitors before breakfast is served. The meeting itself is made up of 3 main sections following a welcome from the group Chair.
This is a key part of the meeting, a chance for everyone to introduce their business, let us know what they have been up to in the last week and ask for contacts or introductions that they are looking for.
Each week, one member of the group is given a BiiG showcase, a chance to present their business to the rest of the room, going into more detail about their services, qualifications and experience. It helps us all to understand what they do and in doing so gives us the knowledge to help generate business leads for them as we go about our day to day business.
We’re all here to grow our businesses and this part of the meeting allows members to pass referrals, share news of work generated as a result of the referrals or confirm the 1-2-1 meetings we have had with fellow members since the last meeting.
The main part of the meeting usually ends at 8:30am followed by informal networking until 9am.
