April’s members’ lunch will be online via Zoom. It’s the perfect opportunity to get to know some of your fellow members and the BCI team. There’ll be plenty of opportunities to catch up with old friends and meet some new faces too. Everyone will have a 3 min slot to introduce themselves and tell the others a little about who they are and what they do and share any news and/or challenges. You don’t need to fill the three minutes but Chris is a rigorous timekeeper! We usually find some common themes emerge which we can discuss over the course of the session.
Our members’ lunches are much more than just pitching; they offer a shared space for connecting with your peers to discuss challenges and opportunities: post-pandemic issues, maintaining company culture when working remotely, tackling recruitment challenges….the time flies by.
We see businesses of all shapes and sizes during the session. From the managing director of an established 50+ person agency to founders of innovative startups, each month we encourage a variety of members to attend. You’re more likely to meet potential partners or referrers than competitors.
If you’d like to attend email BCI’s membership manager Alli Nicholas at [email protected]. The members’ lunches tend to fill up quickly so if you miss out on this one, you’ll be top of the list for the next!
Going forward, our members’ lunches will be a mix of in person and online events so keep an eye on the calendar for details of future dates.

Bristol Creative Industries is the membership network that supports the region's creative sector to learn, grow and connect, driven by the common belief that we can achieve more collectively than alone.
