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.
