What is the Last Friday Club?

FREE business networking meetup on the last Friday of each month. Started in 2016 by, Debbie Ford of The Chichester Social, and Emily Perry of South Coast HR.



  • Freelancers – professional or personal services, digital, creatives, writers, tech etc
  • Independent business owners or sole traders – pop-up shops, retail here in town or surrounding area

Anyone who could benefit from meeting others like themselves to share their ideas, skills and experience to help others grow and develop their business.


We want to offer something a little more informal than perhaps other local business meetings you’ve attended in the past. We want you to come away from each meetup with renewed vigour and purpose for your business by benefitting from the experience of others or just having a second pair of eyes on what you’re currently working on; a different perspective.

Over the past couple of years we’ve seen so many of our members collaborate, there’s even been some unusual pairings with a singing tutor and a brand strategist – it just works!

We typically have 25-30 attendees at each meeting, from varying backgrounds, so you’ll be sure to fit in or find someone/something of interest.

Join the conversation via Facebook and Twitter
