<h1>Generation Next</h1>

We believe in building futures. Helping you thrive.

Generation Next is a network for young business professionals by East Midlands Chamber. It is a place for young people, to make connections, build new skills and advance their careers. 

We know how important it is to develop your skills – so through events, seminars, blogs and resources, we work with people committed to helping you succeed. 

Our mission is to develop and retain the skills of a thriving region, producing better business, better ideas and better minds. Because the East Midlands can thrive if its people can. 

Here is an introductory video from Lucy Robinson, Director of Resources at East Midlands Chamber.


Right now, it is a difficult time for all business, particularly for those just getting started including new workers, graduates, students, budding entrepreneurs and start-ups. We want to be there to support you.

We have been busy arranging a series of free online events, working with our connections to produce blogs and hunting down the resources to help you through this. 


Over the next few months, we are running online free taster events before we launch the full range of benefits which will come with membership. Our online sessions are always topical, and an excellent chance for you to experience professional networking. From a business journey to a workshop, each event is designed for you to gain new skills beneficial in helping you progress in business. Click on an event to book.
