Networking In Coventry Has Never Been So Simple!

On Thursday 22nd March we held the fourth #Covhourlive event at The CET Building in Coventry city centre. Attendees were given the opportunity to hear from speakers about developments within the city.

First up we heard from Paul Muller from Enjoy Coventry a new website launched that very same day which is focuses on promoting events within Coventry. Be sure that you take a look at everything there is to enjoy in Coventry.

Next we heard from Jen Marscheider who is part of the winning team that secured the UK City of Culture 2021 title for Coventry. She shared all of the exciting plans for the coming year and dished out lots of freebies to help promote the City of Culture 2021.

Then we heard from Annabel from The Wheelhouse. A new venture here in Coventry who will offer small businesses the opportunity to rent office space within the council house building. To take a look around email

Finally we heard from Coventry Business Improvement District (#CovBID) Manager, Trish Willetts who has just been successfully voted in for another 5 years. Such exciting times ahead for Coventry and we are proud to be part of it.

The evening concluded with the opportunity to take a look around the old Coventry Evening Telegraph and of course some networking and #covhour tweeting.

A big thank you to all of the sponsors and the Covhourlive Team.

#Covhour was started on 22nd August 2013 and was the first online networking hour for Coventry.  It was set up with the aim to help local businesses to connect, to share information and to support each other.  Now with a community of more than 10,500 followers in less than four years, we can safely say that this has been achieved!   


The unique thing about this online networking group is that it was started by a local Coventry woman Joanne Brooks and unlike most other groups she does not run her own business she is employed by a business in the City.  When asked about the reason she started #Covhour Joanne replied "I enjoy connecting people and I am so proud of the city having lived here all my life, that I wanted to do my bit and to give something back.  I have met so many wonderful people through #Covhour and although it is a big commitment running the networking hour every week, I just love it!"  

Joanne continues to host #Covhour every Thursday between 8 pm and 9 pm and so why not join in this Thursday?
