Network Meetings in Hove

Toast Networking was founded in 2017.

Its founders, business owners Angela Parker and Licia Snow, wanted to create something different. They wanted to network in a more relaxed environment and also be more supportive of business owners.

They felt there was a gap in the market. Time for some professional, yet informal network meetings in Hove and Brighton. They asked Su Gregory to organise the branding and just like that TOAST® was born!

After much venue searching, sausage sampling and, of course, tea and coffee assessment, Toast Networking was founded.

And, it’s gone from strength to strength. Many members only refer business within the group. Several powerful joint partnerships have been established.

In a nutshell, great networking is all about great relationships.

Welcome to Toast Networking, a twice monthly breakfast networking event, and Toast Lunchbox, a monthly lunchtime event.

To help you grow your business, we operate on a single profession per group basis. That is, a membership gives exclusivity in the room.


Membership is £150 per year, plus:

£15 per breakfast (for the Tuesday morning meetings at The Modelo Lounge, Hove)

£20 per lunch (for the monthly lunchtime meetings at the Harbour Hotel, Brighton)

Trying us out? You’re very welcome indeed. Non-members pay £20 per breakfast, and £25 per lunch. You can come to two meetings as a guest before we ask you to consider joining us.

As a member, Toast asks that you attend at least TWO of the THREE meetings held during the month. Of course, we’d love it if you came to all of them.

Tickets for all our events are sold on Eventbrite. You can book in advance to secure your place.

What to Expect

Our events include open networking, meeting, greeting chatting, getting to know everyone in the room.

We meet in interesting venues in Brighton and in Hove and both serving some excellent food and drink in venues that have been carefully selected!

The minute you arrive we will help to make you feel relaxed. Last minute nerves?  we will do all we can to put you at ease and make you feel very welcome!


Who are you?

What do you do?

What are you looking for?

This is your chance to shine, to introduce yourself and your business and tell people what you are looking for – you got 60 seconds to do it in and we do love a tag line!


From time to time we invite external speakers and presenters to come along and motivate, guide and assist everyone with the day to day running of a small business.  You may even learn something new!

All members are invited to present their business and give us a good insight into what they do and what they are looking for. It really helps with referrals.

With both groups, Toast encourages meet-ups afterwards. We call them “Elevenses”, so don’t forget your diary.

Things to Bring:

  • Your business cards or any other promotional material you may have.
  • A great attitude. Who would YOU like to meet?
  • A smile. What can we say? We’re super-friendly and we hope you are, too.
