Join us for this informal networking evening and start making connections with G.
We’re looking for dynamic leaders of small businesses
G by Grant Thornton creates new, exciting and fresh opportunities to learn, connect and share with other small businesses, thought leaders and networks; people who are just as serious about business growth as you are.
Hosted at Avenue HQ in Liverpool, G Meets is a place where interesting people gather, an informal space for dynamic small businesses to connect. The theme of this evening will be ‘Women in Business’ to mark the 100th anniversary of the Representation of the People Act 1918, which enabled some women over the age of 30 to vote for the first time. We will be welcoming female entrepreneurs to showcase their business and share their growth story. You are welcome to come along for the full evening, or pop in for a drink; the evening is flexible to suit your schedule.
Our mission is to build a community of business growth enthusiasts; a place where new connections are made and business is done; that challenges traditional thinking about business growth and has a positive impact on our business community.
