Does it cost me anything to visit? No. Visiting is completely free. Business Hive pays for your first breakfast. That way you can come and relax and see the potential for your business to grow.
Are there joining fees? There is an annual fee of £100, plus a monthly cost to cover your breakfast. Your first meeting is free.
What happens at a Friday breakfast? Everyone arrives at 6.45am and chats informally over tea and coffee. The fresh buffet breakfast starts at 7am. There's loads of choice - cooked food and continental options. At about 7.15am, we start a formal meeting where each person has a chance to talk about their business. This is a really great way for people to get to know you and for you to show your skills, knowledge and experience. We usually finish about 8.30am.
Can I visit one week? Yes, we 'd love to see you. You can just turn up, but if you can let us know in advance, please do. Not only can we keep an eye out for you, it helps us give the hotel accurate numbers for catering.
Who are the other people in the room? There are a range of business people from Portland, Weymouth, Dorchester and surrounding areas. Businesses include a builder, carpet fitter, banking, HR, marketing, window cleaning and IT. Come along and meet everyone. They all have business waiting for you.
