What our members and visitors say...

3 years! Its seems like only yesterday that I was fighting my way through the Cheshire lanes to the launch of a brand new networking group. These days, new networking groups seem to spring up like weeds, but this one WAS different. It ticked all my boxes and I decided to join at that launch meeting. And I'm still there after three years, because it did deliver on those initial expectations, and continues to do so!! Why do I continue to like The Business Network? Three Simple Reasons: 1 - Its a pleasurable experience. Great lunches in nice locations each month. A structured meeting format, but not rigid. Great educational seminars. Meeting decision makers not salesmen as fellow members. Importantly , you feel you are among friends, all willing to help you. 2 - It helps my business. As a digital marketing consultancy, the majority of our clients come through referrals. I have been introduced to a number of new clients by fellow members and met great companies to partner with through the network. 3 - You don't know when you will meet your next client! As host, Karen works hard to attract new people to every meeting. As well as growing the membership, these visitors help to keep the meeetings fresh and dynamic. And hopefully some may need our Internet Marketing services! Happy 3rd Anniversary!

Seminar: Why Your Photos are worth their weight in Gold - And how to make them look
Presenter - Martin Hambleton

I?ll make you realise how important photos are in both our personal and business lives, and give you a few practical activities to improve your own shooting skills

  • A look at the emotional impact photos have on us and why they matter
  • The importance of creating a photo archive in both your personal and business life
  • Practical tips and activities to improve your photography skills

I wanted to be a photographer from the age of 14. I finally made it in my 30s, and haven?t looked back since! I?ve photographed all sorts of things in all kinds of places (twice while suspended in mid-air). I love the access that being a photographer gives you - you get to meet fascinating people and venture into places that most people don?t get the chance to.
