The power of 2020

Mansfield 2020, a long-standing business networking organisation in the town, holds its next breakfast meeting on Thursday 29th September at Mansfield Civic Centre.

Mansfield 2020 is a powerful partnership comprising local businesses, district council and honorary members - such as the Chamber of Trade & Commerce, Mansfield Police and various business and community support organisations.

The organisation boasts over 160 members and has a regular attendance of over 130 at the informative and influential monthly breakfast meeting.

Businesses who havn’t previously attended are invited to the next networking event as a guest of 2020 - and businesses attending for the first time will get free admission, breakfast and one month’s free membership upon joining.

Membership benefits include the opportunity to showcase a member’s own business, networking events, access to a members’ database, entry in the new virtual directory and use of a new voucher scheme.

Many companies have built their business through Mansfield 2020, either working in partnership or through member recommendation. One such success story is Paul Hopewell, managing director at The Health Insurance Group in Mansfield who recently partnered with another 2020 member, R A Cowen & Partners (Financial Services) Ltd, to enable clients access to better deals on their respective services.

Paul said: “This successful partnership would not have happened without Mansfield 2020 and the long term relationships and trust built through attendance at the monthly breakfast networking meetings.

“I would recommend the benefits of being a member of 2020 to anyone in business to help raise their profile and promote their products and services”.
