New ‘good business collective’ to be launched in East Midlands

Meet for Good, a new business collective for the region will be launched on the 24th January, at a breakfast event at the brand new Inchcape Jaguar Land Rover dealership in Derby.

Meet for Good is to offer business networking and development opportunities in a unique format, creating a platform where business meets sport and charity. Developed by All for Good Ltd, a Derbyshire based sport sponsorship and events consultancy, Meet for Good will deliver a number of events across the year featuring personalities and leaders from elite sport, all sharing their experience and insights which have real relevance to the business community.

The launch event will feature former professional footballer & Chair of the Professional Footballer’s Association, Clarke Carlisle, sharing his candid experience of mental health in the workplace. With mental health and wellbeing of employees and colleagues being of such importance to every business, Clarke’s talk is expected to be thought provoking.

Meet for Good will work alongside Partners and members to make a lasting difference in the local community and will work closely with the Loughborough based Move Charity, to raise awareness and funds for the cause. Meet for Good will make regular donations to Move, and some events will have direct fundraising opportunities for the charity.

“The MOVE charity is proud to be working with Meet for Good. As a charity we support people living with and beyond cancer through the power of movement, exercise and sport, and so we couldn’t think of a better suited partnership.  We are looking forward to the future and working with the Meet for Good team,” said Gemma Hillier-Moses, Founder & Director, MOVE.

Jaguar Land Rover Derby and 2bm Ltd, have signed up as Founding Partners.

Marcus Jones, Head of Business, Jaguar Land Rover Derby, said: “I am absolutely delighted that as a team, Jaguar Land Rover Derby will work with such groups as Meet for Good within the community of the East Midlands, realising one of my priorities, supporting Initiatives that help our business communities.

“Meet for Good, is a programme that helps bringing local businesses together to discuss such topics as wellbeing and mental health within the work place along with many other areas that affect everyone today. Having been involved within the business region for many years, I believe getting together with link minded individuals and discussing changing times with topics that get to the heart of what we do can only be a positive support and connection to businesses within the East Midlands.”

Mark King, Managing Director, 2bm Ltd, said: “As a founding partner and member of ‘Meet for Good’, 2bm sees this as an exciting alternative in terms of collaboration – where business meets sport and charity. Business and sport dovetail in so many ways, now we get to meet not only like-minded people but also our corporate social responsibilities to our customers, our people, our suppliers, our local communities and our environment.”
