Made in Grimsby Coffee and Chat

Next Coffee and Chat:
Tuesday 5th December (10am - 12pm)

What is Coffee and Chat?

Coffee and Chat is a monthly, casual meet-up where small business owners like you, can come to enjoy some time away from your workplace, and enjoy some lighthearted chat with other small business owners.

There’s no awkward icebreakers. No sales pitches. No suits. 

Why? Because this isn’t networking.

This is meeting up with people who understand the loneliness that comes hand-in-hand with running a business, and making new friends.

When do we meet?

We meet on the first Tuesday of every month.

Where do we meet?

We meet at the Black Gull on Grimsby Docks (inside the Great Escape building).

Why did we choose the Black Gull?

We chose the Black Gull for a number of reasons:

  1. We love everything that they stand for, and everything that they have achieved over the past 5 years
  2. The Black Gull has a really chilled out, friendly atmosphere that fits the vibe we were looking for

I don't like networking...

Guess what? Me neither. In fact, I hate it. And that is why this ISN’T networking. 

There is absolutely no pressure to sell yourself, or listen to anyone else try and sell you something. That’s not what Coffee and Chat is all about. 

I'm really anxious about coming...

I completely understand how you feel. It is always scary going to something new, and meeting people you don’t know. But honestly, this is a safe space. We’re all in the same boat, and if there is anything I can do to help make coming easier for you, just let me know.

  • I can meet you at the door, so you don’t have to walk in alone.
  • I can meet you a little before everyone else arrives, so you can get to know me and where everything is.
  • I can make sure you know where all the facilities are, such as toilets (and escape routes)
  • I can even make sure you get a drink, if you’re too nervous to ask

How much is it?

It is free to come. The only thing you’ll need to pay for is drinks and any snacks you fancy.
