What our
members say...

The Business Network is a fantastic group of business owners and directors, who are more like a family than network of business associates. Tracy and Hayley are fantastic leaders and facilitators for the Network, with a wealth of knowledge for connecting excellent professionals and business owners. As a business owner, I couldn't recommend this group more highly.

I cannot recommend this network highly enough. Tracy ensures that every event is informative and effective and I am also sat with a great group of handpicked people from Chester and Cheshire and The Wirral. Tracy genuinely cares about your business and is an absolute master at matching people and creating opportunities. Throughout the recent lockdown Tracy stepped up and added more value (not less) and provided much needed support and advice to members. Most importantly we have fun!
