Social, Business & Balti

Chutney and Chat Business Networking

Welcome to Chutney and Chat!

Our events are about social, business, and of course, the Balti, with a delicious 3-course meal served throughout the evening.

A ‘no pressure’ and relaxed environment with networking engagement and conversation between friends.  On the other hand, you may just want to listen to the speakers; we carefully select our keynote speakers to ensure we deliver value every time.

We are an event for non-traditional networkers as well as seasoned event-goers.

Join us, be part of the family Chutney and Chat – Award-winning Business Networking at its Best!

See you there – Abid Khan.
