Virtual Networking Coffee Morning Wednesday 29th April 10am



You may already have found that is a great way for your business to keep in touch during lockdown. The Executive committee of the Chamber has its first virtual Committee meeting just last week.

The Felixstowe Chamber is  looking to recreate its networking events online.  We will be using as a way of keeping in touch virtually with our members and our first event will be a free virtual Coffee Meeting on Zoom at 10 am on Wednesday 29th April,

Make yourself a coffee and take the opportunity to check in with other members of the Chamber. Share with others how the current situation is affecting your business and hear what they are currently doing.
We are delighted that Helen Greengrass will be joining us and will talk about grants available and will answer questions.

Zoom is a video conferencing service that everyone’s now using, but which was first designed to give companies and universities remote communication. You can use Zoom to take part in or host video meetings on your computer or mobile device, and is similar to for example Skype or Google Hangout

It is easy to use (we have been practicing)

You will be sent a link via email, and when the meeting is due to start the host will begin the session and you click the link to join.

However it’s worth having your own (free) Zoom account, which gives an extra level of security: just go to

It’s also a good idea to test the microphone and camera on the computer, or the mobile, you plan to use before you enter the meeting.  Zoom lets you do that.  It also lets you choose whether to use audio only or audio and video.

Once in the meeting, on a computer if you move your cursor to the bottom of the screen, you’ll see a toolbar that lets you mute or unmute your microphone. We suggest that you set your mic to mute when others are talking. This will make sure we don’t pick up any miscellaneous noise around you.  When we open the meeting we will set some ground rules to establish good ‘etiquette’. However, we do plan to create our usual informal networking atmosphere… even virtually.

The meeting will commence at 10 am, but you can drop in anytime between 10am & 11am
Please book online or email, so that I can send the link to the Zoom meeting
