Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

In-Person Networking is back in the East Midlands!

In-Person Networking is back in the East Midlands!

The multi-award winning KuKu Connect re-started their in-person networking business ‘Connect Receptions’ this week and business is once again booming at KuKu’s brilliant networking events.


Re-starting in Derbyshire the KuKu Connect Receptions are hosted by different businesses or venues, with the first hosted by florist to the stars, Jilly Mattley at Essentially Floral and the Cutting Garden Café.  Set in rolling countryside in Appleby Magna this little-known spot was showcased to businesses from across Derbyshire. Business guests enjoyed Pimms, and al-fresco selection of meats, cheeses, pastries and homemade cakes, whilst KuKu’s relaxed and informal style of networking took place to great effect.


KuKu Connect led the way during the pandemic with their online support services, which included their online KuKu Cocktail Hour and daily Carry-On-KuKu videos for over a year, all for free, helping thousands of businesses all over the East Midlands and wider UK.  Stephen Goddard and Philip Brooks-Stephenson, the Co-Founders of KuKu Connect have been amazing in their support to businesses, venues, charities and the NHS Charity Appeal, helping to raise funds and keeping people connected for business.  The support given by KuKu has been commercially valued at over £15 million worth of services, which makes KuKu a real COVID hero.


KuKu offers great value services and more than just networking, helping your business or organisations connect with thousands of other businesses all over the region.  


To support businesses coming out of the pandemic, you can save £200 off KuKu membership, but only until Monday 9th August.  For more information on KuKu Connect Membership click here
