Professional Networking Events in Oxford

Central Oxford was where it all began, back in January 2011, when we launched our first Opendoorz group.

Central Oxford was where it all began, back in January 2011, when we launched our first Opendoorz group.

The Jury’s Inn has just had a fabulous refurbishment and sits just on the Oxford ring road, close to Summertown. Business owners are welcome to join us for one of our networking guest events which are held the third Tuesday of every month.

Our meetings are held on the first and third Tuesday of the month – the first meeting is exclusively reserved for executive members in order that confidential discussions and sensitive issues can be explored in a trusted environment. The third meeting of the month, which guests are personally invited to is primarily to expand business networks, make new connections and develop strong relationships.

We are selective when choosing our locations and look for venues that are sophisticated, elegant and conducive to not only business networking but are a great environment to mix business with pleasure. This makes the Jury’s Inn the perfect setting in Oxford for professional business networking – done the Opendoorz way!

Before the event our members can inevitably be found in the Marco Pierre White’s restaurant or the funky new cosmopolitan bar discussing new business opportunities and identifying ways in which they may be able to work together. What better way to network in Oxford!

After the meeting guests are invited to join us for further networking over a cool beer or a chilled glass of wine – it just gets better!

In the words of our Oxford members…

“Opendoorz as this has proven to be far more superior and focused than other business networking groups. It has enabled me to build strong, long term relationships where both parties feel confident and comfortable about referring one and other” Sam Farmer- Director White Oak Finance

“At Opendoorz I am making quality connections with businesses who are bringing me genuine business opportunities”. Maria Morris – Director NGI Finance

“Joining Opendoorz has unquestionably helped me to take my business to the next level”. Nikki Poole MD Hedges Law
