What members and guests say

"Why consider Business Network? Well Tracy and Hayley are great. They go out of their way to know everyone and to help them. The total focus is on helping to introduce you to the right people in a very informal manner. There are no pressures, just simply getting to know like minded people in a nice environment and the outcome is that you make friends with people you can help or they can help you. I love it !! "

"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.! "
