We run networking events and seminars throughout the year, and details are regularly updated on this page.

Pint After Work Stourbridge

We really hoped to be able to restart our Pint After Work events in July, but it now looks like we'll need to wait a little longer.  Provided there are no more blips along the road to freedom, we're now planning for our first PAW networking event to be on 7th September at Sadlers Distillery in Lye.  Look out for the invitation!


Stourbridge Breakfast Club

Our Breakfast Club events at Hagley Hall will restart on Friday 1st October 2021, legislation permitting - make a note in your diary and look out for the invitation.
