Business Boost Event

A Summary of the Business Boost Event which ran on Tuesday 8th November 22 - so you don't miss out!

All feedback is much appreciated, so do email us at and let us know if you have any comments – it really does help us to make sure the events and support we offer is of value to you and your business.
Meanwhile, here’s a “little” summary, as promised, of the event and how we can all work together to help and support you to boost your business now and into 2023. It’s a long email, but well worth reading – especially to the end with the “what’s next” steps!
We know that everything can seem a bit overwhelming at times – as there are soooooooo many opportunities available to us and it feels like we have to be everywhere all of the time.
We want you to know that we are here to help and support you and that you do not need to take on everything yourself.
By coming to the free jelly meet ups, meeting people, getting help and support – everyone is very generous with their experiences and expertise – this will enable you to make new connections and learn lots from other business owners as well as share your own expertise.
And if nothing else, being part of the St Albans News Round Up means that we will promote your business in all the places you’d like to be seen – facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, instagram – so even if you don’t do any marketing at all – you can take comfort in knowing that your business is reaching approx. 14,000 local people each month! 
Which gives you breathing space to decide or plan the additional marketing that you may want to do as a business. Simple!
Everything else is opportunities you can take or leave for your business – you don’t have to do everything, nor at once! Nice to know your options and what’s available to you.
Facebook Groups
We talked about the two business facebook groups that we run – St Albans Businesses facebook group which is open to everyone to use – and also the TBC Members Only group, that’s for TBC members – this is great place to test things out, ask for opinions and work with other members
With the St Albans Businesses group – you can post anything at anytime, but we do also have themed days of the week to help you to get more involved – you can check these all out here
Co-working jellies and online meet ups
We run two meet ups per month
One online – which is usually the first Friday of the month – it’s at 10-11am and is a relaxed and informal way to meet other businesses, ask questions, share info and learn loads – the next one is Friday 2nd December
The other is offline and is usually the middle Thursday of the month – the next one is Thursday 17th November from 9.30am at Rothamsted Conference Centre in Harpenden
Do share the link with other businesses you feel would benefit from coming along.
