We have put together the most Frequently Asked Questions of the Norwich Kitty Networking Group for you below. If there is a question you have that is not on the list then please send us your question using the form opposite.
The Norwich Kitty Networking Group is held every Thursday at licensed venues around Norwich City. Your host Paul Rudd will introduce your business to the room with your submitted ‘30 words’. Now everyone in the room knows who everyone is, removing any initial awkwardness experienced when you first attend a networking group. Our networking group is relaxed, friendly and non-pushy. In fact, our focus is on natural networking, all over a beverage after a busy working day.
No, we do not restrict our membership to just one business per sector. In fact, we have many businesses from the same sector as members of the Norwich Kitty Networking Group. We believe businesses go with who they have rapport, trust and feel comfortable with, rather than a business they are being forced to use. Also, we find that if there are more businesses represented in a sector, as a small business you can collaborate together whilst building a trust with each other.
No, the Norwich Kitty Networking Group offers a relaxed atmosphere where networking happens naturally. At the Norwich Kitty Networking Group, we actively promote the business to a database of thousands of businesses around Norfolk & Suffolk to build up our memberships. However, it is always in the members own interest to bring other businesses into the group. If you know of a business you want to make contact with, ask us invite them. Alternatively, you can invite them yourself at the ‘Invite a Business’ page of this site.
It isn’t the business, it is the individual. If you’re focused and serious about pushing your business forward, it can be anything. While you may think your business would be of no interest to members, remember networking doesn’t just stop with the members in the room. Every member will have a network of business they work with. Therefore, they can promote you at a later date should any of their contacts show a requirement.

We prefer every member attending the meeting to submit their ‘30 words’ via the website. This means we can get an idea of how many are coming to the event, while also making the ‘30 words’ section run smoother. However, we understand that some members may forget, or may not be able to supply their ‘30 words’ via the site. If this is the case, please let us know that you are coming by phone or email. You can then write your ‘30 words’ on a piece of paper on the night.
So you’ve signed up as a FREE member to the site and want to try a Norwich Kitty Networking Group taster session for FREE. You will notice that submitting your ‘30 words‘ is blanked out for FREE members. Should you wish to attend your FREE taster session then simply let us know either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or via the contact page of this site. You can either provide your words about your business that you want your host to read out for you via email or you can then write your ‘30 words’ on a piece of paper on the night. Should you wish to then upgrade your Norwich Kitty Networking Group membership to a paid one, the ‘30 words‘ functionality will then be available to you for submission each week.
