(M) In-Person Neurodivergent-Friendly Networking in Brighton

Tuesday, May 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

This is a Member Event and is not being ran by the Better Business Network themselves. 

Get to know fellow neurodivergent business owners and leaders in a low-pressure, non-salesy environment that facilitates meaningful connections and provides genuinely helpful support for your business.
What Makes This Networking Event Different?

🌟 Structured (Yet Flexible!) Facilitated Networking: Say goodbye to awkward small talk! We’ve created a friendly, facilitated networking format to help you focus on the conversations that interest you and feel relevant to your business.

💬 Communication Made Easier: We understand that the pressure to engage in conversation at networking can sometimes be too much, which is why we provide colour-coded lanyards to indicate your preferred approach to communication. Choose from Green (“Chat to me!”), Orange (“I might not be up for chatting”) or Red (“If I want to talk, I’ll let you know”) and engage with conversations on your terms, or just listen in.

🤫 Quiet Space Available: Sometimes, we all need a breather. Our events will have a dedicated quiet space for anyone who feels like things are getting a bit much, so you can take however long you need to regulate and recharge.

🎯 Choose From Four Different Table Activities + Discussions: Join one of our four themed tables to take part in the conversations that interest you, with an activity to focus on while you talk
This event is an opportunity to connect with your neurodivergent tribe, learn from one another, support each other and explore new opportunities.
