What we're about

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. When we get together, 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 in various locations 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.

The Oxfordshire Project Central Oxford Meeting

Cinnamon Kitchen Oxford

£20.00

Join us for a morning of Business Networking, a light breakfast and a round table discussion where we will be asking our guests and members these business questions for open discussion: How do you best separate home from work, particularly if you work from home – what boundaries do you put in place? What aspects of networking work best for you? How do you gather feedback from your clients and at what stage do you do this? If there’s one piece of advice you could have given yourself when you started out in business, what would it be? We also invite you to bring along any questions you would like to hear discussed. As always, before and after the 20 minute talk, there'll be plenty of time to catch up with other attendees, talk about your business and enjoy a delicious breakfast. So come along and don't forget to bring your business cards!

As business owners and entrepreneurs, we have to battle with, and overcome many hurdles on the journey to success and this means embracing change; whether that be changes in the timings, the people, the location, the approach. the project or the goals. When you understand change and when you understand which stage of change you are in, then you can really make it work to build your confidence, your consistency, your habits and ultimately, your results. My talk will help you understand change and help you master your habits. As always there'll be plenty of opportunity to chat to fellow members, talk about your business and enjoy a delicious breakfast. So come along and don't forget to bring your business cards!
