What our members say

""If you've been going to networking events as long as I have you will have done them all. Ones where it's just you and a woman who does aromatherapy for cats and that one where half an hour in you start to wonder if you've accidentally joined some sort of cult. You know the one where people are deliberately breaking their own toilets just so they have got a referral to give to the plumber. Anyway 10 years ago we went to our first Business Network and we haven't bothered with anything else since. Above all its enjoyable and you meet great people. Out of that business relationships and even friendships grow. The culture is very much "how can I help" rather than "what's in it for me". So all the right ingredients are in place for you to grow your network of contacts and grow your business. And it works""

South Humberside Business Network Member

"Joining The Business Network was one of the best moves I ever made. Through The Business Network, I have found a number of trusted suppliers and some very good customers. Not only that but the complimentary morning seminars are a valuable source of information on business trends and ideas."

Ian Smith, Winning Tenders Ltd

Exeter Business Network Member

"What I would say? Do it! You do have to work it.. not just lunch once a month but 1 to 1's, being open to opportunities, and a givers mindset. If you want to grow your business - simply do it!"

Heather Hobden, Aircool Diesel Services Ltd

Chester Business Network Member

"It is personal touches like this which set the Network aside from other business networks and which make it a constant pleasure to attend."

Stephen Singer, Infralogics Limited

Manchester Business Network Member

"Joining the Business Network South Herts has been a revelation to me as my previous experiences of other Networking Groups was a real turn off. The Business Network format has a working lunch feel to it that allows even the least experienced networker to shine . . . and enjoy"

London Central Business Network Member

"I?ve come across plenty of business networks in my years running professional football clubs and in consultancy; most are good, but this one is exceptional. The level of professional organisation and engagement of The Business Network makes me want to contribute my own experience and contacts. In turn, I expect to learn what's going on in the region and pick up new ways of doing things - supporting each other in this way benefits everyone."

Barrie Pierpoint, BP Management & Marketing Services

Peterborough Business Network Member

"The Business Network South Manchester has undoubtedly facilitated steady growth in my business during the last year whilst increasing the number of invaluable contacts within my networking circle and I'm confident this will continue through into 2012. Your meetings are always well structured, productive and uplifting - what more could you ask of networking? I would not hesitate to recommend The Business Network South Manchester to all my associates and wish you continued, and much deserved, success in the coming year."
