Business Development Group

The EMIG Business Development Group is a networking meeting for those members focussed on building their business by M&A, licensing, partnering and novel in market strategies.

The Group meets quarterly at the Manor, Weston on the Green, Oxfordshire. Every meeting starts with a networking lunch followed by an afternoon of interesting content which might typically include:

  • a member company showcasing their business and strategy
  • case histories of deals completed
  • contemporary topics affecting the marketplace
  • professional advice & services from member companies.

The meeting is followed by a networking dinner.

The Group was established in 2010 and has become a firm fixture on the UK business development calendar.

We are always looking for EMIG members to showcase their business at this event, so please do not hesitate to contact Andrew if you would like to participate.
