Local businesses mix coffee and networking at BP Rolls

Date: 27th March 2019

BP Rolls Automotive MOT & Service centre opened their doors today to a community of local businesses as they hosted the Coffee and Networking Group in partnership with Emily Wilkinson.

The Coffee and Networking Group was established in 2018 by Digital Marketing Expert Emily Wilkinson as a way of bringing together entrepreneurs, freelancers and local business people to share knowledge and ideas.

The inaugural meeting was held with just 8 people at Coffee #1 in Andover last year and over the past 12 months, it has grown to over 50 people at the last physical meeting, and over 150 members in the Facebook Group. There is an incredible diversity among the members, with everything from virtual assistants, social media specialists and office supplies, to pet food distributors, accountants and solicitors. Conversation is interesting and engaging as the meetings build networks between businesses in the town and encourage mutually beneficial collaborations.

Since opening our new MOT & Service Centre in November 2018, BP Rolls has been looking for an opportunity to invite local businesses to come and see our facilities so the chance to host the Coffee and Networking morning with Emily came at just the right time.

“These networking groups are so important to the local business community, sharing knowledge, ideas and making new connections ultimately benefit us all in the long run.

It was great to get people through the door and show them how BP Rolls differ from the other garages in Andover this morning and we look forward to hosting another event in a few months.”
