The Young Business Group is a non-profit organisation providing networking opportunities for members through monthly events and business and community projects.

YBG has members from every background covering many business sectors, including the retail, hospitality, media, advertising, commercial, IT, legal and finance sectors. It meets on the first Thursday of every month, holding a lunch or dinner club which provides members with an opportunity to chat informally over a meal, make new business connections and friends and enjoy a talk by a topical speaker.

YBG is a dynamic group which always has something going on! If you want to be part of this group or find out more please contact myself, our Membership Secretary or download the membership forms here on the website.

What we do

The main focus of YBG’s regular activity is the monthly events which gives our members a chance for informal discussion. In addition, the YBG organise a number of events including our annual Summer Party, a quiz and our signature event, the Summer Ball where we also award the Bill Green Award for Entrepreneurial Spirit.  YBG Members also get the chance to get involved with the Christmas Light Parade in December.

Guiding all these activities is a council of volunteers from with the members.  If you are interested in joining, would like to become a member of the YBG Council or simply want to find out more about the group, its members and its activities, please get in contact with our Membership Secretary Louise via e-mail to
