Our first Trading Places Dinner to be held in Basildon!

Join Essex Chambers of Commerce for a unique networking and dining experience that is Trading Places, at the Holiday Inn Basildon in March 2017. During a delicious 3 course meal with wine, you will have the opportunity to change places and trade business cards with each course at a new table, increasing your opportunity to network..
We are also delighted to welcome
two very special guests for this event. Scott Hann, coach of double Olympic champion Max Whitlock and Director of Coaching at the South Essex Gymnastics Club in Basildon and also World Silver Medallist and Olympic Finalist, Southend-born gymnast Brinn Bevan. As one of the UK's most successful gymnastic coaches ever, Scott he will explain how his drive and enthusiasm is passed on and how you can use these skills to motivate yourself or employees for business for greater success, whilst Brinn will give an inspirational talk on how adversity introduces a man to himself.

Scott is an English gymnastics coach, currently serving as the Director of Coaching for the South Essex Gymnastics Club in Basildon, Essex. Most notably, he has coached 2012 Olympian, 2016 double Olympic Champion and World Champion Max Whitlock, and World Medallist and Olympic team member Brinn Bevan, Jamaican team member Reiss Beckford and elite gymnast Jay Thompson. You can read more about the South Essex Gymnastics Club's history here.
Brinn was one of Britain’s top junior gymnasts and was part of the GB team that took gold at the 2012 Junior European Championships. Moving up to senior level, at the 2015 European Games Brinn won pommel horse bronze before being part of the British team that won silver at the 2015 World Championships, going on to be part of the team that represented GB at the Rio Olympics in 2016.

The format of the event is a seated three course dinner. Each course starts with round-the-table introductions, followed by networking across the table.  After each course the diners change tables, therefore maximising networking opportunities. Each table is hosted by an Essex Chambers member of staff who will help to make introductions to your table companions. This promises to be a motivating evening full of business opportunity. We hope you can join us.
