Cirencester Growth Hub

Well, what another busy month it’s been here at The Cirencester Growth Hub!

As ‘alternative’ methods to office-bound employees continues apace, memberships are reaching capacity and there are days when there’s not a desk left to be had! Our offices continue to be full and meeting rooms have also proved to be a very popular way of ‘bringing together’ remote workers from disparate teams.

This has contributed to an ever-burgeoning exciting business community where we’re meeting new people every day.

Throw into the mix our own Growth Hub hybrid model of online and in-house events and you quickly realise that no 2 days are the same. It’s all about the connections and here at Cirencester, through co-workers, day members, 121’s, workshops and their respective Delivery Partners, we’re helping businesses grow and connecting more and more SME’s, Sole Traders, Business Owners, MD’s, CEO’s and Entrepreneurs every week.

Upcoming events

ONLINE WORKSHOP: Brand Strategy - a road map to move your business forward 10/11/2021 bookable at

ONLINE ONE-TO-ONE: How to master your business operations - profits, sales and people 17/11/21 bookable at
