Networking & General Events

Connecting with others is a skill that once learnt can be instrumental in opening up new opportunities, helping individuals and organisations to develop and grow.

At Devon Business & Education Centre, we want to provide opportunities for new and experienced business people and educators to expand their networks and make new contacts.  In the inspiring location of DBEC, networking is informal, engaging and value driven.

One of our Partners is the 373 Group a business networking group that was founded by Tom Hope and Chris Lorimer with a view to help local businesses become successful through "friendship, collaboration and knowledge".

The art of storytelling
14th May @ 7:00pm
30 Tickets Remaining!

This 373 Group event is for those of us who sometimes feel that we’re not getting your message across. We want to stand out to get our audience's attention but we're not always sure of the most effective way to do it.

Storytelling is our most powerful communication tool, yet there is a "knowing doing" gap. Despite our innate storytelling skills, we're quick to revert back to the corporate slide deck, favouring facts and figures, and opportunities for powerful and impactful communications are lost.  Whether you’re posting on social media, writing an email or speaking in front of an audience, if you want to communicate effectively the same storytelling principles apply.  

Join Lucy Gower at this 373 Group event for loads of insights, ideas and networking with the friendliest group in the South West.

All welcome!

Boston Tea Party - a manifesto for better business
25th June @ 7:00pm
30 Tickets Remaining!

In this 373 Group event, Kate Ashmore of Rebel HR tells her story of how she supported Boston Tea Party in its  development of a manifesto that bucked the corporate norms, helping the business create a people led culture.  The manifesto celebrates difference and individuality, and encourages an empowered workforce, constantly seeking ways to do things better.  It's probably no surprise that the organisation has led the way in closing the gender pay gap.  Kate will reflect on her career in HR, and how people management is rapidly evolving. 

The 373 Group is open to all and is widely regarded as one of the friendliest networking groups in the South West.
