Gloucestershire Forwards

Gloucester Rugby, The Association of Gloucestershire Business Groups (AGBG) and Gloucestershire County Cricket Club are excited to announce a new collaborative business networking group; Gloucestershire Forwards.

Gloucestershire Forwards aims to use the power of sport to bring businesses and the community together. The core objective is to develop a business network that provides opportunities for businesses and community initiatives across Gloucestershire to connect and work with each other.

Gloucestershire Forwards has been founded to help support businesses of all sizes across Gloucestershire. Through offering business networking with a twist, and holding exciting events across the calendar at various locations across the county.

One of the goals of Gloucestershire Forwards is to create an inclusive forum for all Gloucestershire businesses to work together, finding solutions for present day issues experienced, whilst supporting community and charitable work across the county.

This will be recognised through direct fundraising for charities, and at each event offering a charitable or community representative the opportunity to promote their work and projects. A charitable donation will be made from the proceeds of ticket sales and beyond the first event, from membership costs. This will go to different charities and projects across Gloucestershire;

The first event will be held at Kingsholm Stadium, on the 3rd of October. This shall be a business breakfast with a twist, and will be the first in a calendar of networking events.

The event includes an insight into" Building a Winning Team" from Johan Ackermann, Head Coach at Gloucester Rugby and also our first speakers with a charitable focus highlighting their work in the community will be Cheltenham Festivals.

Tickets can be booked via Gloucester Rugby before 5pm on Thursday 25th September online or call 0871 871 8781 - Option 2*.

Commercial Director of Gloucester Rugby, Mike Turner commented:

"We are delighted to be one of the founding partners of Gloucestershire Forwards and the intention of this new organisation is to develop an inclusive forum to connect businesses across Gloucestershire alongside community projects and charitable partners. We look forward to welcoming people to Kingsholm for our first event on 3rd October."

Claire Thayer from the Association of Gloucestershire Business Groups (AGBG) stated that:

"The association is passionate about our towns and our micro businesses right across the county, this partnership will enable us to promote the benefits of collaboration - together we are stronger. "

Going forward from this we will invite businesses to become members of Gloucestershire Forwards, from which they will receive great benefits.
