Suffolk enterprise agency Menta is about to celebrate two years of hosting its monthly business networking event, Coffee Means Business, in Bury St Edmunds.

The event, held at The Apex on the second Thursday of the month, was established in September 2014 and now regularly attracts people from more than 40 businesses who network informally over coffee.

Leanne Castle, events co-ordinator at Menta, said: “Thanks to Menta patron Ensors Chartered Accountants’ continued financial support, we’re extremely pleased to be celebrating two years of Coffee Means Business in Bury.”

She added: “We recently asked for feedback from attendees and the comments were extremely positive, saying how much they appreciate the informality, friendliness and low cost which we’ve maintained at just £2 per person, with no membership or joining fees.”

Neil Meekings of Ensors Chartered Accountants added: “We’re pleased to continue our support. Coffee Means Business is a great way of meeting new business people, building professional relationships and expanding our client base”.

The next Coffee Means Business in Bury will take place on Thursday, September 8 on the first floor of The Apex, from 9.30am to 11.30am, when the speakers will include Emma Finn of Pathfinder East and Michelle Pollard of Spider Recruitment Services.

Menta is a not-for-profit organisation which has been supporting Suffolk businesses for more than 32 years with advice, training courses and events.
