If you’re looking to expand your business contacts across Sussex, joining the Cobb Lunch Club is a brilliant first step.

Whilst the lunch club isn’t exclusive, we do pride ourselves on the seniority of our members. We want to ensure that everyone you meet is a valuable new business connection, which is why we stick to the following criteria.

Are you eligible?

Our members are directors of companies with a turnover of at least £1 million per annum, or who employ 10 people or more. Ideally, they will be based in the Brighton & Hove area or have business interests in this region.

Members of the professional services sector are encouraged, but we are limiting numbers to ensure there are enough places for mainstream business people.

Membership is for the individual, not the company, and substitutions are allowed, but not encouraged.

Membership costs

Membership runs for 12 months and costs £250 + VAT. You can join at any time during the year and we guarantee to deliver at least 10 meetings during the year.

In addition to the annual membership fee, lunch and drinks will cost £35 + VAT per person per event, which is billed separately.

What’s included?

Membership of the Cobb Lunch Club secures you the following benefits:

  • Opportunities for safe and secure networking
  • Inspiration from quality speakers on a range of subjects
  • Access to some of the top entrepreneurs in the area
  • Opportunities to meet MPs and senior figures from local authorities
  • Verbal introductions at meetings to other members
  • A chance to sit next to specific individuals
  • Privacy — your contact details will not be shared with other organisations

Bring a guest!

If you’re already a member, please do bring along a guest if you think they fit the bill. They can attend the first meeting as a guest, can attend a second meeting and pay for their lunch before deciding upon becoming a member. Requests to bring a guest should be made through Cobb PR by contacting Janet Kemp and guests are expected to pay for the cost of their lunch (£35+VAT).
