Business, over Breakfast

Southend Peers is an established Southend-on-Sea business networking and referral group that meets each Thursday morning.

Our meetings are both fun and fruitful, we welcome business owners, and would-be business owners alike, to get together to build valuable professional relationships; relationships that support, enhance and positively build business.

Joining Southend Peers will open new doors and help grow your business through a collective group of like-minded entrepreneurs.

Our Meetings

What to expect

Our meetings follow a familiar format, but with a ‘Peers’ twist.

Each week, members have the opportunity to deliver a 60-second message to the group, followed by a nominated member presenting a 10-minute introduction to themselves and their business.

Occasionally we also split into breakout groups to discuss business challenges and opportunities and how they affect our respective businesses.
