The Laughton & Co Business Support Group


The Laughton & Co Business Support Group is a select group of up to a dozen
non-competing business CEOs, Directors and Entrepreneurs who meet on a
monthly basis for mutual support, learning and social engagement. The group is
managed and facilitated by Chairman Neil Laughton and the members benefit
from each other’s expertise, knowledge and experiences whilst providing a confidential, inspiring and supportive environment in which to learn and grow, both
personally and professionally.

Monthly meetings commence with a relaxed buffet lunch at Laughton & Co HQ
in the South Downs National Park, followed by a briefing from a specialist guest
speaker. Then members will discuss the issues, challenges and opportunities within
their own businesses, receiving confidential advice, ideas and feedback from the
Chairman and other members of the group.
