Business Success - Flourishing Communities

Ely Cathedral Business Group believes that there is a strong correlation between the health of the business sector, and the well being of the communities in which those businesses operate. The purpose of ECBG is to explore this relationship and to strengthen the correlation: to help businesses succeed and thereby make our communities stronger


Second Monday

Monday 12 October

Jane Galvin. Managing Director, Barclays Corporate Banking, Eastern Region
"Cybercrime: the importance of Corporate Governance in today’s business world"

Small, informal evening discussion sessions, initially focussed on businesses which are part of the ECBG network, and led by a representative of the company.

Our motivation for these gatherings includes the following:

  • to encourage networking amongst ECBG members - building relationships
  • to learn about each other's businesses and professional lives
  • to share experiences, challenges and insights, and to inspire one another
  • to pursue the ECBG theme and purpose: the success of business as a driver of wellbeing in our community

These events are open to all, free of charge. No need to book, just turn up.


The Royal Standard Pub, Fore Hill, Ely, CB7 4AF (parking in Broad Street car park).


6.30pm on the second Monday of each month, during spring season February to June, and autumn season September to November.
