The ‘You’re not alone’ Breakfast
The last year has been a lonely one for so many people, but with the end of lockdown in sight, families are set to be reunited. That won’t be the end of the loneliness though – far from it. Many thousands of people feel isolated even in “normal” times.
Jo Crease is CEO of Together Co, an award-winning loneliness and isolation charity which creates connections between people in Brighton and beyond. For the last 20 years, the charity has been supporting people through its befriending, social prescribing and volunteering services.
At our April breakfast, Jo will discuss her two decades working in or with charities, which includes everything from promoting adult education to helping community groups fundraise for sewing machines. There was also a stint at a Melbourne hospital and a period in government at Westminster. And she will reveal how her charity reacted to Covid-19, with a digital transformation in the way it provides support.
See you there – virtually for now – though we’re hoping we’ll be Together in person soon.
The Chamber’s monthly breakfast is very popular, so you’ll need to book early. 40 to 60 business people from Brighton and the surrounding areas come together to meet and network virtually on the fourth Friday of each month.
There are a wide range of people who attend from all sectors and all sizes. From sole traders and start-ups, to some of the biggest businesses in the city.
What to expect:
- Three virtual, networking sessions
- A talk from a brilliant, local business owner
- And, a chance to chat with familiar faces and new
Each month there is a guest speaker, who talk about their own experiences of running a business and their own personal journey.
If it is your first breakfast or you haven’t attended in a while the Chamber team are always on hand to make introductions. You will receive an attendee list in your confirmation email.
