What our members say...

I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for arranging the introduction to Sue Brocklehurst of the University of Chester Academies Trust at the last Business Network lunch. Sue was genuinely surprised during the initial introductions to learn of all the services, the members on her table could offer to the Trust. Sue did comment that having received a personal invitation from you inviting her to lunch, she could simply not refuse! I have subsequently emailed Sue and I am hoping that your initial introduction will turn into some real business. Thank as always for your continuing support and assistance.

  • I hate doing proposals ? they take so much time and you never get feedback?
  • I?m tired of losing out on work to ?cheaper? quotes.

Seminar: Sponsoring migrant workers in the UK
Presenter - Bee Rudki - Founder and Partner - The Nathanson Partnership

"A sponsor licence can help your business combat labour shortages by enabling you to access a wider pool of workers from overseas. We will guide you through the process of securing a sponsorship licence and the subsequent recruitment of migrant staff under the Skilled Worker route.

If your business wishes to hire an EU or non-EU worker in the United Kingdom following the end of free movement, then you will need to secure a Sponsor Licence from the Home Office?s UK Visas & Immigration Section (UKV&I). Consider this a contract between your company and the government to guarantee that you will adhere to the compliance duties associated with sponsoring migrant workers.

We will provide you with a whistle-stop tour of this process."

Presenter - Marc McLoughlin

Electric vehicles are on the rise with the government even banning the sale of ICE (petrol/diesel vehicles) in a little over 8 years? time in 2030.

But what does this mean for you and your business? Will electric work for you? What will it cost you to own, lease and run these vehicles? How far will they travel and how and where do you charge them? How many are there to choose from? Are they really more environmentally friendly that diesel and petrol? Marc will present an informative and thorough case for electrification and try and dispel some myths whilst educating us on how to avoid the pitfalls and common mistakes.

The EVolution is here ? are you ready?

  • Why is this happening?
  • The market
  • Taxation
  • Running costs/whole life costs
  • Charging/power
  • Fleet management
  • The future / your plan
