I’ve just come back from the second Friends Of The Orient meeting. Friends of the Orient is set up to enable businesses connected with Leyton Orient Football Club to network, swap contacts and generate leads, and ultimately to drive revenue into the club through being associated with successful businesses.
The meeting consists of a breakfast approximately every two months which is sponsored by one of the member companies followed by a short presentation by that company. Membership is £300 a year to join, or for the first year is free to gallery members and club advertisers. The first two meetings have been quite successful and have generated some useful leads already. They’re held in the new West Stand at the Orient ground on Brisbane Road.
Members of the club are also listed in the Friends of the Orient directory.
