Community Focus: Last Friday Club


The Last Friday Club is a FREE business networking meetup on the last Friday of each month, based at a variety of independent venues within Chichester.
Started in 2016 by Debbie Ford, owner of The Chichester Social, and Emily Perry, a local HR Consultant and founder of South Coast HR, there are now over 300 members of the Last Friday Club.

WHO IS IT AIMED AT?

Chichester-based:
     Freelancers: professional or personal services, including digital, creatives, writers, tech etc.
     Independent business owners or solo entrepreneurs: retailers and pop-up shops from Chichester and the surrounding areas, or individuals running their businesses from home (including CRJ Lettings!)

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The Last Friday Club is a little more informal than many other business networking clubs. It is Debbie and Emily’s aim that their members come away from each meetup with a renewed vigour and purpose for their business, having benefitted from the experience and the different perspective of other members.
There are typically over 40 attendees at each meeting, so you’ll be sure to fit in and find someone, or something, of interest. As well as informal networking (and coffee and pastries!) there is typically a speaker too, sharing their business experiences and knowledge.
This has led to many collaborations between members in the past three years. With an eclectic mix of people, you never know where your next opportunity could come from.
So, if you’re a freelancer or business owner in Chichester and would like to meet others who face the same challenges as you, come along to one of the free meetings on the last Friday of each month.
