Business Networking

Join the BRACE Business Network - more than just partnerships, but a collective of like-minded organisations who can support each other in CSR and beyond, with a little help from the team at BRACE

It might surprise you that a charity would run a networking event, but that’s exactly what we do!

Meet a unique mix of professionals from a wide range of businesses, small to large firms, freelancers and charities. By inviting people individually from across our network, we can offer you a unique mix of people, many of whom you are unlikely to have met before. 

We also want you to feel supported by BRACE in strengthening your mental wellbeing and occupational health policies, products or services at your company. We have the expertise to share with you in return for your partnership with BRACE, providing regular networking events and webinars.

September 20th 2022 - Mark Moore - "Staying safe in a digital world"

9am-10.30am, Tuesday 20th September 2022

Join us online for a business networking event with a difference!

Meet a unique mix of professionals from a wide range of businesses, small to large firms, freelancers and charities. By inviting people individually from across our network, we can offer you a unique mix of people, many of whom you are unlikely to have met before.

The event will start with a presentation by our guest speaker, Mark Moore:

“Staying Safe in a Digital World”: An introduction to simple cyber security for charities and small business, from a police-led centre set up to provide free support across the South West region.

Speaker Bio: Mark Moore is a serving police officer within the Devon and Cornwall force, and after many years of experience, from custody and detective roles, to major incident and firearms management, he has now been running the South West region’s cyber resilience centre as a day job for almost two years. He runs the centre as a small not-for-profit business, and has had to set it up and grow it in a digitally-secure way. Mark’s goal is supporting other small businesses and charities, helping them stay safer and reducing their cyber risk.

After the talk there will be two breakout sessions in small groups – this is when the networking will really start and you will have the chance to meet a wide range of people.

After the event you will receive the names and emails of all participants to assist you in follow up with your new connections. Please let us know in advance if you do not want your name and email included in the circulated list.

The ticket price is £10. All proceeds go to dementia research, and the event itself is pure business networking.
