Co-working every Friday morning 9.30am – 12 noon at Smokey Joe’s café, Bennington Street GL50 4ED
Laptop Friday is an opportunity to meet local business people and work, swap ideas or network in a friendly atmosphere over a coffee. If you work from home and spend a lot of time on your own it's a chance to get out and about while still keeping an eye on those important emails and tweets. There are new people almost every week and everyone is welcome. Just come along between 9.30am and 12 noon and introduce yourself to our organisers Nigel Knowlman and Louise Jenner. For more information visit the Laptop Friday Facebook page or contact Nigel Knowlman.
The second Tuesday evening every month (except August) 7.30pm – 9.30pm at the Beehive, Montpellier Villas GL50 2XE
Skillspace Networking aims to support small businesses in Cheltenham with a talk every month on a topic of interest, from cyber security to social media. There is plenty of time for networking before and after the talk and '15 seconds of fame' to introduce yourself and your business to other attendees.
