4Networking – 4N – runs 250 networking groups across the UK. If you’re looking for new business and contacts in the South Essex area, we’d love to welcome you to one of our friendly events.

Each meeting provides plenty of opportunities to meet other local business owners and employees. They all follow the same format, but we try to keep them as relaxed as possible. 4N is 50% Business, 50% Social – and it works!

Breakfast meetings run 8-10am, and Lunch meetings 12-2pm, every fortnight. You don’t need to attend every time, but the more often you are in the room, the more it will work for you. Meet, Like, Know, Trust.

Every event follows the same format – our unique blend of:

  • open networking over a drink;
  • 40-second introduction round;
  • an informative speaker “4sight”;
  • three 10-minute 1-2-1 ‘appointments’;
  • tea or coffee, and fantastic food;
  • details of other attendees after;
  • an active, national 4N Community.

Lakeside Lunch

Lakeside Lunch – the only meeting on a boat – meets alternate Wednesdays, on the upper deck of the Miller & Carter.

Billericay Breakfast

Billericay Breakfast on alternate Wednesdays, the opposite week to Lakeside, at The Burstead Golf Club.

The UK’s only joined-up Business Network


‘Passport’ Members can attend any of the 250 groups across the country, but don’t worry if you’re not a member (yet) –  you can still attend a couple of meetings and decide if it’s right for you.

Get in touch if you want to be booked into an upcoming meeting.
You’ll hear from one of the Team a few days before the meeting, just to make sure you know where the meeting is and to confirm your meal choice.

If you do come to a meeting, bring business cards, a banner if you have one, any promotional ‘bumf’, £15 cash… and a smile.

You won’t regret it, and it may transform your life and business too!

I’m not gonna lie, to say I was nervous when I first went to 4Networking would be an understatement, and Breakfast meetings weren’t the easiest to get to.

When Lakeside Lunch launched in Feb ’17 I decided to make a commitment to be there every two weeks, and to make the most of the opportunity. The best way to force myself to do that was as part of the Team – no hiding in the corner!

Before long I found myself promoting Billericay as well as organising the Lakeside meetings, and the consistent effort brought about improvements both to me and my business.

Now, as Area Leader for South Essex, managing Billericay Breakfast and Lakeside Lunch, I’m expecting new challenges and opportunities, and look forward to helping other local businesses and individuals develop and thrive!

Hopefully see you at a meeting soon
– make sure to grab me for a 1-2-1!
