Looking back - CovHour 2018

As we near the end on 2018 we look back on another fantastic year for #covhour and our wonderful city.

We've sent thousands of tweets and now have in excess of 12k followers and we’ve hosted 3 fantastic #Covhourlive events.

Our first event back in March was held at the CET building, which we were lucky to view before it was closed for refurbishment.

Our second event in October was held at the Old Grammar School, home to Coventry BID.

Finally our third event took place at the start of the December at Smiths Nurseries & Garden Centre in Baginton.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped us in 2018.

Firstly our speakers for 2018…

Then to all of our wonderful sponsors who make it possible for us to organise these fabulous free networking events…

Last but by no means least, the wonderful #covhourlive team…

It has been another great year for the city which is only going to continue in the run up to City of Culture 2021.

We look forward to tweeting with you in 2019 why not introduce a friend to the wonderful #covhour community.

Happy New Year everyone,

Jo & 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?
