Market Harborough’s newest morning networking event launched with a bang on Thursday 28th January.

The Business Introductions & Referrals Network (BIRN for short) welcomed over 60 businessmen and women during its first free networking event, which is a joint venture between Bray & Bray Solicitors, Raymond James Investment Services Market Harborough Branch and Insomnia Coffee & Wine Bar.  The event, which is held at Insomnia (in the Symington building, Adam and Eve Street, Market Harborough), will continue to run as a free event on the last Thursday of each month.

Speaking about the feedback received from attendees, Market Harborough resident and Associate solicitor at Bray & Bray, Andrew Hitchon comments:

“It’s amazing how cheerful people are first thing in the morning, especially for January!  The atmosphere at BIRN was buzzing and there was a fantastic, diverse mix of people enjoying making new connections.  It was great to hear so many people saying that the event was excellent, and people seemed impressed by its informal nature and the fact that it was open to everyone to attend.  There isn’t really anything like BIRN in Market Harborough at the minute, so we hope the news that everyone is welcome spreads!  The people are great, it’s free to attend and there’s free (top-notch) tea and coffee – what’s not to like?”The next BIRN event will take place between 7.30am and 9am at Insomnia on Thursday 25th February. There is no need to register and no strict arrival time, so people can arrive and leave whenever they like.
