Welcome to a unique networking experience

Swindon Business Village

Every Thursday Morning 7.30 – 9.00
At the Campanile Hotel, Delta Business Park, Swindon


With great reluctance, we have decided to mothball Business Village from October 2020.

Attendance has been disappointing in recent weeks, particularly since September when we introduced the small £5 booking fee – a move we had to make, to ensure BV covers its costs.

If there seems to be enough genuine interest, we will consider reviving Business Village in the New Year. So if you’d like to see BV resurrected, please let us know, and subscribe to our newsletter to receive updates.

Over and out for now.

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail

Many businesses people, especially those in the early years of their business, will act first and think later. Many entrepreneurs will argue that doing something, learning by the experience and failing fast if you are going to fail is the right approach.

Stuart Ball, of Swindon-based Absolute Management and Marketing, spends time talking about the alternative approach; that is thinking about what we are going to do and why, validating that it will deliver the right results, then executing the plan.

His presentation helps business people work out where the business is heading, before jumping in.
