Networking  in Hertfordshire

If you’re serious about business growth, then networking amongst local business people can make a valuable contribution to your success. At HB Accountants we organise and host networking events, as well as attending local groups. Networking events are designed to help local businesses make connections. At HB we set up and host a Quarterly Ladies Networking Lunch, which we run to enable local business women to meet and do business. We are proud to assist Love Hoddesdon with their monthly Networking Breakfast too. We also participate in networking groups which we attend such as Hertfordshire Professionals, Bishops Stortford Business Buzz, Ware To Do Business to name a few.

Ambition Conference, Hoddesdon

Attendees for The Spotlight’s 2019 Ambition Conference hit the 130+ mark. The event was initiated to inspire local businesses to grow & excel. The result, a fantastic day! MC for the event, Jeremy Nicholas took to the stage and introduced 6 fantastic speakers. Each year the Ambition conference in Hoddesdon shares sales and marketing expertise amongst hundreds of local businesses. The team at HB Accountants is actively involved in making this event happen. We’ve provided vital administration, managed finances as Treasurer and led the event team as Chair again this year. It’s a forward-thinking event we’re proud to support since it’s designed to help local businesses to thrive.

An amazing £10,000 was raised this year which was shared between HB’s nominated Charity, Teens Unite Fighting Cancer & The Herts & Essex (Ware) Samaritans.

Business collaboration

We believe businesses can help each other to succeed. That’s why we were part of a group who were involved in establishing the Business Improvement District for Hoddesdon. This has led to the creation of the ‘Love Hoddesdon’ initiative which we support which implements improvements for the town. We also sponsor the ‘Your Town’ initiative which includes a popular road race series.
