'Network on the Move' - The Return Journey with Virgin Trains

On Wednesday 31st August 2016 members of The Business Network London Central group had the opportunity to travel to Manchester, in a private first class carriage with Virgin Trains, to meet members of the long established Business Network Manchester.

The event marked the 'return journey' of one made in 2013 when a Manchester group travelled to the newly established London network. Helen Bennett, Owner and Director of The Business Network said, "the first trip was such a success, and now the London group has grown to over 100 members, it seemed a great opportunity to run the return journey".

"The idea of 'Networking on the Move' has always appealed to me", said Helen, "and we are in a unique position whereby we can broker introductions between the two business communities".

As well as the private first class carriage on Virgin Trains, executive transfers were provided in Manchester by Professional Chauffeur Services (PCS), who took the London group on to the Networking Event at The Lowry Hotel.

The Rugby World Cup Comes To The Business Network

The May event of The Business Network London Central was the chosen occasion for Rugby, Travel and Hospitality to release their latest research findings on the effectiveness of Corporate Hospitality based around the forthcoming 2105 Rugby World Cup.

The details were presented to the audience of senior business decision-makers by Rob Wingrove and demonstrated the value of the Rugby World Cup as an effective Corporate Hospitality format.

Webb Ellis Members and visitors were given the opportunity to be photographed with the trophy prior to its scheduled tour before the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

London Launch A Great Success

The Business Network's introduction to the London business community was generously received following the recent launch event at the DoubleTree by Hilton West End.

Managing Director and Founder Helen Bennett said, "I am delighted to have been made to feel so welcome and the event to have been so well received. Although we know our format works having operated in Manchester for over 17 years, it is always nice to be so readily accepted in a new area where you are not yet known."

With the event being described by some of the 100 senior decision-makers who attended as "inspiring", "outstanding", "a real eye-opener" and a "master class of organisation" The Business Network London Central looks set to match the success of the long-running Manchester group.
