Sea-ing Is Believing

“Living by the sea” might be one of the stock replies when people ask about the benefits of living in Brighton. But answer us this: how often do you actually go swimming in our grainy English Channel?

Open water swimming is challenging and often intimidating, especially if you’re not the most confident swimmer. Plus, let’s be honest, it’s bloody cold. But there are incredible health benefits. Swimming is the best sport for all-round health, and doing it in the sea can help build confidence and self-esteem. And let’s not forget the fact that sea bathing was widely prescribed by Victorian doctors for every ailment from fever to hysteria.

So please come to our PLATF9RM Sea-ing Is Believing swim, led by coach Andy White from Sea Lanes. After an introduction, Andy will lead a brief fitness and training session before giving us some coaching tips. Then, of course, we’ll head out into the ocean and put everything he’s said into practice.

See you down the beach! Armbands not allowed.

The Importance of Beeing

The Importance of Beeing

We welcome Stewart Graham to PLATF9RM for The Importance of Beeing.

A swarm of bees fell from the sky into Stuart's little garden and he was hooked. Since that day in May 2008 he has caught dozens more swarms, bottles hundreds of jars of delicious honey and fermented very many litres of mead which can only be described as rank. Each colony inspection is a sweet blend of fear and fascination of these weird alien insects whose genes determine it is worthy to sting and die for their sisters for the greater good. And all this whilst the bees, as a consequence of their ceaseless labour, ensure fruit for our tables and and cotton for our backs. Join Stuart to see his bees and hear why beekeeping is the ultimate extreme hobby.

There will be lots of beekeeping kit to get your hands on in this interactive session, and it will be fun and informative regardless of whether you like honey on your toast. Book your ticket here. Bee there or bee square.

Open to members and non-members.

Brighton Business Club: B2B Speed Networking

Brighton Business Club are hosting a Speed Networking event.

We've all been there, we attend networking events where we:

  1. we find it awkward to approach people and groups and
  2. get stuck talking to 1 or 2 people.

Everyone "hates" networking.

But what if there was a solution? What if there was a stress free way to meet everyone in the room and then leave them and talk to the next person without being rude? Well now there is...

Brighton Business Club brings you Speed Networking for Business. A networking event where you talk to everyone in the room individually about your business. It's a chance to make business connections, generate leads and hone your pitch too.

Come along and join us at this unique event and tell more people about what you do!

Who is this event for? Businesses who want to pitch to other businesses and/or businesses who are looking for services.

What do you need? Business cards and a 4 minute pitch. If you have more marketing material such has samples or leaflets, then you may bring those along too.

How does it work?

  • There are 20 spots available for this event.
  • The group will be divided into pairs and each will be given 4 minutes to talk about what they do.
  • A bell will ring to alert the second member of the pair that it is now their turn
  • Once both have pitched, it's time to move on and meet the next business.
  • Arrival is between 18:00-18:30. Speed networking begins at 18:30 sharp and finishes at 19:50. Businesses will then be given the chance to group network until 20:30

Refreshments will be provided.
