Frequently asked questions

When do you meet?
Depending on your area, we meet once a month at 9.30am. However, some groups meet twice a month. All timings are posted on your group’s page, with venues and parking restrictions.

Where do you meet?
Chelsfield Lakes Golf Centre, Court Road, Orpington BR6 9BX (see the map below). Again, this depends on the group and availability of venue. Please check your area for updates.

What happens at a meeting?
Our meetings are very informal. New, potential and existing members introduce themselves to the group. We have occasional speakers to talk on a variety of topics. After the meeting, members are welcome to stop for coffee and mingle with others to share ideas and seek advice.

If you want to speak about something for longer than the normal introductory time, then you can arrange this in advance with Michelle or Gary.

Do I have to introduce other businesses to the group?
Absolutely not! We are an informal, friendly group and there is no pressure or commitment from you to introduce new members.

How much does it cost to join?
There is an initial one-off joining fee of £40 and thereafter a monthly subscription of £10, payable on the 1st of every month.

Do I have to attend all meetings?
There is no obligation to attend all meetings but we do encourage our members to attend as many as possible and to support the PiB network wherever possible. What you put in, you get out!

Will I be in competition with members who are in the same business as mine?
No – we have a one seat per business policy. There will be other businesses who may complement your own, but you will not be in direct competition.
