Once a month (usually the second Tuesday), SENTA (Sheffield ENTerprise Agency) holds a business networking breakfast. Entrepreneurs and wannabe entrepreneurs gather to talk about business and to engage in the kind of juggling that usually goes on when people try to stand, talk, eat and drink, all at the same time.
I contacted SENTA at the recommendation of someone who had set up a consultancy a few years back and had found them to be helpful. They were. The course that Neelam and I attended offered similar material to Business Link's, but it was less formal and there was more opportunity to engage with the tutors, and the other people attending.
Best of all though (from my point of view) were the bacon butties at the networking breakfasts. Neelam (being vegetarian) is less keen. Somehow croissants and Danish don't have the same appeal.
