Connects Network is celebrating a decade of local connections in Staffordshire by launching new meetings

Connects Network, a community-driven initiative led by local business owners, proudly marks more than ten years of fostering lasting connections within Staffordshire. With a focus on highlighting the many positive aspects of our community, Connects Network is helping to reshape the narrative of business in the local area.

On April 4, 2024, Connects Network unveiled its second monthly meeting, supported in part by the Stoke-on-Trent City Centre Business Improvement District. Held at The Regent Theatre in Hanley, this exciting event offers businesses and organizations an additional opportunity to network, access resources, and discover untapped possibilities.

Predominantly based in Newcastle-under-Lyme, a second monthly Connects Network meeting in Stoke will act as a bridge between the centre, fostering a robust support network for local businesses.

To highlight these positive aspects, each month, Connects Network meetings feature guest speakers with ‘good news’ stories and/or important information for attendees. Over the past decade, Connects has hosted over 100 speakers and toured nearly 20 venues since the end of the 2021 lockdown.

Pete Herbert Co-Founder said: “It’s been an amazing experience running this meeting with a brilliant team of local business leaders, seeing connections made, supporting each other in their business ventures. The guest speaker section is a favourite with most, highlighting positive initiatives in our community."
