Business networking groups exist in many different forms but they all aim to do one thing, generate connections and leads.
One such group is Network Luton, which holds its meetings from 7am on Wednesday mornings at The Discovery Centre, in Stockwood Park.
Web designers, publishers, human resources specialists, people who have just started out in business and even holistic therapists get themselves up and out to know each other over breakfast.
Network Luton has what organiser Steve Whiting calls The Discovery Pitch, where people stand up and say what their business does.
I decided to head out of bed early with my videophone and give you an insight into what goes on at these events.
