Colony Networking offers PAYG, non-membership networking and training events to male and female business owners based or trading in the Liverpool-Warrington-Manchester corridor.

Colony Networking runs two types of small business event. NETWORKING drop-in sessions are informal group events that offer open networking followed by different themes, presentations and activities.
