Thoughtful event planning that tailors to the needs of every Member

If you are visiting this site for the first time, please take a few moments to read some of the kind comments provided by members. They offer an insight into why we have such loyal members throughout our Business Network groups.

A Host’s role goes beyond simply organising professional and efficient events. To be successful they need to act as ‘business connectors’ for their members, actively brokering links when the opportunities arise. To do this they need to research a member’s business and understand its position in the marketplace. Only then can the table plans of our live events, or the breakout room configurations of our online events, work most effectively.

So when you find yourself attending one of our business networking events you will appreciate that the group of business owners and directors you meet at your table, or in your breakout room, is not down to fate, but is the result of careful and considered planning on the part of your Business Network Host.

The Benefits of Membership

The Business Network Host

A key benefit of membership is your dedicated Business Network Host, playing a connecting role by working to get you in front of the business owners and directors you want to meet, not only at events but also during the working periods in between.

Seminars

The seminars are an important part of our events. Drawn from the membership, the presenters offer topical and relevant seminars, allowing you to share expert insight to ensure your knowledge remains current. At our live events, the seminars also provide a further opportunity to network with a group of like-minded business professionals.

Making your expertise more visible

Membership offers opportunities to shed a spotlight on your expertise. You can choose to present a seminar yourself and you can also submit articles for publication on the news pages. Dependent on the level of membership you select, this can be done through your regional website, or the national and regional website together.

National Members Database

Membership allows a personalised entry on the National Members Database, making you and your business visible to the national membership.

Member Offers

Membership also allows you to promote offers. Dependent on the level of membership you select, this can be done through your regional website, or the national and a regional website together. These offers can be taken up by both members and non-members.

What our
members and
visitors say...

I can't believe it's been a year already! I have nothing but praise for the Chester Network and the hard work Tracy and Hayley put into it - it shows and I am happy to renew my membership - NOW INTO MY 10TH YEAR ! Having been a member for over 10 years says it all, the network works! It is there to create genuine connections and long term business relationships amongst the members. Not only has the network brought in new business for me, it has also been there as a support in times of change and to work out through any dilemmas. I would strongly recommend becoming a member.

Great Bear Distribution have been members of The Business Network Forum for almost 12 months and in that time I have met many interesting Owner Directors and Senior Managers of business. The Chester Business Forum meets monthly for a couple of hours at various prestigous Chester Hotels. Not only is there an opportunity to network with key decision makers in the region, it is also possible to present your organisation to a wider audience, on a one to one and if the opportunity allows as a formal seminar. My Company will in time I am sure be doing business with one or two of the key people we have met - this is a gradual process of confidence building ,and sharing of ideas and experiences. Equally many of the smaller companies and individuals can provide a higher degree of personalised service, something which has been lost and perhaps missed in a quest for business growth. I highly recommend any business to put a toe in the water and meet two highly motivated organisers and many like minded business networkers at a future meeting.... Go on try it - nothing ventured nothing gained.!
