"The Ikon Partnership has joined The Business Network Chester. When Ikon was looking to strengthen their presence in Cheshire, this friendly proactive group was a natural choice as a significant tool in Ikon's marketing strategy."

John Cooper

"The Business Network Chester is by far and away the best business networking group I have ever been part of and it's entirely down to the energy that Tracy and Hayley put into it. It�s a pleasure to come to every event; I always come away with either a lead or a useful piece of information and think you do a superb job of running the show.Congratulations to you both!"
