What our
members say...

This network is the best I have ever attended. The combination of Hayley and Tracy brings a certain magic to the group. Tracy is a fabulous connector and Hayley a fabulous organiser. During Covid-19 the network has, dare I say it, got even better! There are online networking events, seminars, updates, 121's, netwalking and more. I know the members of the network better than before 2020 and although I can't wait to get back to lunch at The Chester Grosvenor, I hope we can continue with many of the other ways of connecting.

This truly is the most amazing network I have ever been a part of, the hosts Tracy & Hayley run the events so very well and ensure they are always enjoyable. It’s a fabulous network of people from Chester and across Cheshire and North Wales who have really pulled together throughout lockdown driven by Tracy keeping things going to support everyone. I can highly recommend this special Network group if you are considering joining one and the online meetings work fabulously on Zoom as a temporary measure until we can all get back in the room!
