An introduction from John

John Harvey

Welcome to The Samphire Club. We’re a private members' club that promotes a better way of networking throughout the South West.

We offer business owners and professionals valuable networking opportunities through a programme of events, introductions and strategic business development support. Over the last few years we've built a thriving community of like-minded business people throughout the South West - from Bristol and Bath through to Exeter, Plymouth, Truro and beyond. This is where you can meet the decision-makers, learn from, and share your knowledge with others, and enjoy outstanding hospitality at some of the region's finest food and drink venues.

We offer a selection of membership options and although membership is by invitation only, we look forward to hearing from you if you'd like to register your interest, find out more about us or join us as a guest at one of our events.

And it isn't just about what we can do for each other. At The Samphire Club we believe in going further - doing good for the communities we live and work in.

A taste of things to come



My first Samphire Club event introduced me to a new and refreshing style of networking. John has an unbelievable knack of pulling together genuinely compatible (and nice!) people and I have no doubt the Samphire Club will continue to help build successful relationships between businesses.

John has a personal gift for business-to-business development… his ability to help people grasp the power of their own communication is superb.

John’s always got an eye out for recognising common ground, enabling businesses to collaborate and prosper.

Getting to know John on the networking circuit is like travelling in the fast lane of the M5 in a sports car with the stereo blasting out your favourite song…The Samphire Club will be nothing short of amazing and brilliant news for Cornish businesses.
