WELCOME TO CROSS REFERENCE
A UNIQUE NETWORKING GROUP HERE IN GERRARDS CROSS
WE are still meeting as usual but on Zoom from 8am – if you would like to attend as a visitor, first visit FREE, just get in touch!
REBOOT JOINING OFFER
- No “one off” joining fee (normally £100)
- No monthly fees (until end of 2021)
- Just £50 fixed fee until the end of 2021 – nothing more to pay in 2021 UNLESS we move back to an in person basis.
- 1st meeting free
- Monthly fees from Jan 2022:
£5 (if meetings held virtually)
£25 (if meetings held in person. This covers the meeting and breakfast). If after July 2021 we start meeting in person the monthly fees of £25 will apply.
In the days pre-lockdown, we used to meet every 1st & 3rd Friday of the month at the Bull Inn, Gerrards Cross, for networking and a buffet breakfast.
Since lockdown, we’ve continued to meet online via Zoom − albeit without the full English or Continental − but with the same blend of humour, expertise, and all-important business referrals.
A No-eating Meeting
We’re currently meeting online, so there’s no travelling time, no first-time nerves, no need to eat!
We think our networking group is quite unique in how we work, but don’t just take our word for it – come see for yourself!
To attend and receive the Zoom invite to our next meeting email Ash Taylor:

All networking groups claim to be ‘unique’ don’t they? But are they … do they all genuinely represent a realistic return on investment in both time and money?
In truth, it’s a difficult balance to get right. At the one end of the spectrum are the ‘hard’ networking groups, where you are expected to bring in a number of referrals each month, whilst at the other end are the ‘soft’ networking groups, which over time have come to exist more as a social forum for its members.
Cross Reference would like to think of itself as somewhere in the middle – friendly but focused.
