BUSINESS networking group Business for Breakfast is to launch a group in Huntingdon in September.

The group is being set up by Kathryn Fletcher, who already runs successful groups in Cambridge and Newmarket. She believes that Huntingdon and Ely, where she is setting up another group, will benefit from the Business for Breakfast style of networking.

"Nothing is as effective as a personal introduction or a recommendation, and nothing is as effective at bringing these about than networking groups," she said.

"What makes Business for Breakfast different is that we have a clear objective to generate profitable referred business for our members, but we also believe in building relationships between members gradually."

Simon Laskey, of Haines Watts Chartered Accountants in Huntingdon, is a member of the Cambridge Business for Breakfast group. He believes that the group's philosophy of 'Know, Like, Trust' is can bring positive results for businesses.

"You have to network for the long term," said Mr Laskey.
