Business networking events for directors and business owners

Effective Business Networking

Whether providing face-to-face lunchtime networking events, as we have been since 1993, or hosting our more recent and equally successful online events, our purpose remains the same. We aim to provide business owners and directors with an effective and focussed environment to do business.

Currently, the opportunity to make new contacts, to collaborate and share knowledge, and the ability to build a support network, is perhaps even more important than before. That is why we continue acting as ‘connectors’ for our members and finding new ways to make their expertise more visible.

“I’ve been a member of the Business Network for over 4 years now and I know of no other network that works so hard for its members.” Roger Porthouse – Latent Capability Ltd

What our members and visitors say...



15 May 2019 To Tracy & Hayley This is a testimonial that I write to thank you both for all you have given to me and to your chapter from my personal experience of your fabulous networking group. My personal life took a dramatic hit in April 2017 when I was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer, following surgery I had intensive chemotherapy and had major side effects from this which caused me to have not one but two T.I.A’s (Mini strokes). After a spell in hospital and a considerable amount of investigations I slowly started to recover and was released home, where the new life challenges began. During my recovery I was diagnosed with Anxiety & Depression which made me re-evaluate different aspects of my life and I decided to change my life for the better and make as many changes as possible. So after many cocktails, wine & desperados, my good friend and next door neighbour Robin and I decided to go into business together and buy the franchise Monopoly Buy Sell Rent Chester. We launched in January 2018 and I knew that for us to succeed we needed to network and find new contacts within Chester & surrounding area, I searched around for quite some time and didn’t really get any feedback from other groups. I connected with Tracey via Facebook Messenger which was great and I was invited to attend my first meeting in Feb 2018. I really enjoyed this experience and found Tracey and Hayley to be both welcoming and supportive. Once I had committed to attending the network meeting I became very nervous and started worrying about my ability to connect with a group of people and represent my business in the best possible way. Tracey & Hayley assured me that it was a very relaxed environment and that all I needed to do was be myself and make myself present within the meetings. Because of the strong and positive advice I was given during my first meeting, I have taken that into every Business Networking Event and more importantly I have utilised it within other aspects of my business. Since joining the networking group I have become a lot more confident with myself and how I communicate with other people and I have Tracey & Hayley to thank for that for making me feel welcome and helping me along my way. Thank you both, please give yourself a pat on the back. Kind regards Gavin Belton-Rose Director
