Local ambassador launches the Entrepreneurs Circle in Colchester

Ann Cope Entrepreneurs Circle

A new Colchester networking event is being held here at the Innovation Centre from July. The Entrepreneurs Circle is part of a nationwide roll-out of events across the UK designed to give the UK economy a major boost as we exit the pandemic. Ann Cope is the local Ambassador making it happen.

Ann Cope, who owns Ann Cope Interior Design which is based at Firs Chase West Mersea will be the local ambassador of Entrepreneurs Circle, which has thousands of members across the UK.

Entrepreneurs Circle (EC) is led by Nigel Botterill, a Sunday Times best-selling author and serial entrepreneur. It exists to deliver support, advice and inspiration to business owners across the UK.

Now, with the help of us here at the Innovation Centre Knowledge Gateway (ICKG) that message will be delivered on a local level through regular meetings, exploring the very best methods of modern marketing and how to run a profitable business, or as the “EC” simply calls it, ” getting and keeping customers”.

Ann explains;

‘I am so excited to be a part of this roll-out because we (there are over 100 local ambassadors) are on a mission to make a difference and to share advice, ideas and the odd bit of inspiration. All the local ambassadors are business owners, and we will be discussing tried and trusted methods that we know work.

‘I am proud to be part of this movement and am hugely looking forward to running our events and meeting business owners like me who want to make a difference and play their part in kick starting the economy on both the local and national level.’

Entrepreneurs Circle founder and CEO Nigel Botterill, who has created 9 different million-pound businesses comments;

‘The take-up of our local meeting scheme has been nothing short of sensational and just goes to show that there is an energy out there amongst the UK’s entrepreneurs to stand up and make a difference.

‘This network will deliver support, advice and inspiration to local business owners from local business owners who are passionate about leading the UK out of the pandemic to bigger and brighter futures. There’s nothing else like it and we’re very proud of them all.

‘We’ve been planning this for a long time, but of course wider events had curtailed our launch. However, as lockdown lifts, now is the time to get out there, to shake things up a bit and get people excited about running a business again.

‘We’ve all been through incredible challenges in the last 18 months but we’re nearing the end of the tunnel now. The energy and enthusiasm of the local ambassadors has been incredible, and I am hugely excited to be working with Ann Cope as she rolls out our events in Colchester.

The first event run by Ann Cope will be held at Innovation Centre, Knowledge Gateway, Boundary Rd, Colchester CO4 3ZQ on 13th July, from 6.00pm until 8.30pm

Attendance is free for current Entrepreneurs Circle members and non-members can apply for a trial membership by visiting https://eclocal.co.uk/Colchester/join/

We look forward to welcoming everyone to the Centre and excited to see all the local Entrepreneurs in attendance.
