  • Can I just turn up on a Friday to attend a CBG meeting as a visitor?

    Our meetings are very well attended, however we allow a maximum of two visitors per meeting.
    If you would like to attend as a visitor, please email with details of preferred date and your category.

    Please note if the category is already filled it will not be possible to attend a meeting.

    All correspondence and visitor requests should be sent to: enquiries@chigwellbusiness.co.uk

    We will then send a confirmation if there is availability on your requested date or with the next available slot.

  • How often do we meet?

    Every week on a Friday morning at 7.15 for 7.30 am.
  • How much does it cost?

    We don’t charge anyone for their first visit but subsequent visits will cost you £10 as we need to pay for the venue and the catering. We’re happy for visitors to come back two or three times to get a good feel for whether the group will suit them (and vice versa) and then we’d ask whether you’d like to join.
  • So how much does it cost to become a member?

    A one-off fee of £90 to show commitment and to help with the admin. There are NO annual fees. Once you’re a member, we ask for £55 per month by standing order to cover the costs of the venue and breakfast plus general running costs.
  • What happens if I can't make it one Friday?

    This happens, of course. We expect, where and when possible, for you to arrange for a substitute who can read out your “sixty seconds” for you so that you don’t miss out on your sales message being heard. We also expect the courtesy of an email/text/call to the Chairman or other member to pass on your apologies for absence.
  • What is my ``sixty seconds``?

    Every person attending has the opportunity to talk for one minute about their business and to state what type of business they’re looking for to help the other members learn what referrals to look out for you.
  • And the 10 minutes?

    The members in turn (one per week) get the chance to give a more detailed explanation about their business to help teach the other members what they do and what to look out for.
