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 and Ware To Do Business to name a few.

Ambition Conference, Hoddesdon

Attendees for The Spotlight’s Ambition Conference (back in 2019) 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 that year. It’s a forward-thinking event we’re proud to support since it’s in our DNA and is designed to help local businesses to thrive.

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