"15 May 2019 To Tracy & Hayley This is a testimonial that I write to thank you both for all you have given to me and to your chapter from my personal experience of your fabulous networking group. My personal life took a dramatic hit in April 2017 when I was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer, following surgery I had intensive chemotherapy and had major side effects from this which caused me to have not one but two T.I.A?s (Mini strokes). After a spell in hospital and a considerable amount of investigations I slowly started to recover and was released home, where the new life challenges began. During my recovery I was diagnosed with Anxiety & Depression which made me re-evaluate different aspects of my life and I decided to change my life for the better and make as many changes as possible. So after many cocktails, wine & desperados, my good friend and next door neighbour Robin and I decided to go into business together and buy the franchise Monopoly Buy Sell Rent Chester. We launched in January 2018 and I knew that for us to succeed we needed to network and find new contacts within Chester & surrounding area, I searched around for quite some time and didn?t really get any feedback from other groups. I connected with Tracey via Facebook Messenger which was great and I was invited to attend my first meeting in Feb 2018. I really enjoyed this experience and found Tracey and Hayley to be both welcoming and supportive. Once I had committed to attending the network meeting I became very nervous and started worrying about my ability to connect with a group of people and represent my business in the best possible way. Tracey & Hayley assured me that it was a very relaxed environment and that all I needed to do was be myself and make myself present within the meetings. Because of the strong and positive advice I was given during my first meeting, I have taken that into every Business Networking Event and more importantly I have utilised it within other aspects of my business. Since joining the networking group I have become a lot more confident with myself and how I communicate with other people and I have Tracey & Hayley to thank for that for making me feel welcome and helping me along my way. Thank you both, please give yourself a pat on the back. Kind regards Gavin Belton-Rose Director "
