Colony Networking is a mixed monthly networking group based in Warrington and set up in 2010. It offers Pay-as-you-go as well as membership based mixed networking, speaker and workshop events that support growing small businesses.

All Colony networking events include both open and structured networking which is friendly and welcoming to both new and experienced networkers. In addition, networking events also include either a talk from a business speaker on a generic business topic, a business panel or a structured business activity such as speed networking, a workshop or group discussion.

Whether you’re an experienced networker or new to the networking arena, Colony events offer a professional yet friendly format. Events provide great content, fresh themes and maximum connection opportunities both during and afterwards as we continue to support and champion your business and can broker great business connections and introductions for you.

To provide maximum flexibility, Colony networking events run on a pre-bookable and drop-in basis or can form part of an annual membership and are competitively-priced.

Colony provides a friendly and informal environment in which to meet fellow business owners. Colony is open to male and female-led businesses and there is no limitation on the number of companies per sector/business type.

Colony enables businesses of all sizes and structures based or trading in Cheshire, Manchester, Lancashire and Merseyside to network and receive support in a friendly and relaxed environment and to provide information, support, and contacts that can facilitate growth and promote success.

Registration and informal networking takes place for the first 15-30 minutess, followed by a set format or theme at each event to facilitate introductions. Attendees can turn-up as and when they can but early arrival allows you to benefit from additional networking time, introductions and activities. Meetings usually end with open networking and the chance to stay on for 1-on-1 meetings and benefit from venue dining special offers.
