Circle 2 Success, the business network with a focus on building connections, is to embark on a partnership with Andoversford Races to draw the attention of Gloucestershire businesses to this eclectic annual racing event.
The 600 members of the network will be offered an exclusive hospitality package at Andoversford to celebrate the annual running of the Robert Hitchins Group Andoversford Grand Annual Chase. The eponymous commercial property developer is already a member of the network, alongside several other company members, like Brewin Dolphin and Smith & Williamson. Alongside the hospitality will run a unique team building exercise.
Circle 2 Success is no stranger to sport in the county. A previous attempt at racing was aborted with the cancellation of Countryside Day at Cheltenham in the autumn, but the network includes Forest Green Rovers among the members already,as well as Worcester Racecourse.
"Building relationships with local business is critical to our continued growth beyond those that enjoy the best of class racing we provide," remarked Peter McNeile for Andoversford. "However, unlike our sister professional racecourses, the Point-to-Point experience is altogether more family-oriented and more eclectic. We think it has a unique appeal that feeds spectators into mainstream racing and introduces them to the sociable nature of horseracing in the mkst informal way. We look forward to seeing plenty of C2S members here and hope they enjoy the team-building too."
It sounds like more fixtures could build bridges with business in this way and illustrate the positive and often intangible benefits of a great day out at the races for staff, clients or families.
And so say all of us.
