What our members say


"3 years! Its seems like only yesterday that I was fighting my way through the Cheshire lanes to the launch of a brand new networking group.These days, new networking groups seem to spring up like weeds, but this one WAS different. It ticked all my boxes and I decided to join at that launch meeting.And I'm still there after three years, because it did deliver on those initial expectations, and continues to do so!!Why do I continue to like The Business Network?Three Simple Reasons:1 - Its a pleasurable experience. Great lunches in nice locations each month. A structured meeting format, but not rigid. Great educational seminars. Meeting decision makers not salesmen as fellow members. Importantly , you feel you are among friends, all willing to help you.2 - It helps my business. As a digital marketing consultancy, the majority of our clients come through referrals. I have been introduced to a number of new clients by fellow members and met great companies to partner with through the network.3 - You don't know when you will meet your next client! As host, Karen works hard to attract new people to every meeting. As well as growing the membership, these visitors help to keep the meeetings fresh and dynamic. And hopefully some may need our Internet Marketing services!Happy 3rd Anniversary!"

"Not only does Business Network make sense financially, it's a huge asset to business owner/managers and the 'lonely at the top' syndrome. There's a huge wealth of knowledge and regional business information within the South Manchester branch, high quality businesses and a tangible community feel about the whole group. If I need a contact or expert advice, or if I'm struggling with something, there’s always someone I can call and get a result.When you're running your own business, being able to access that support and 'business intelligence' is invaluable. So for me, South Manchester Business Network isn't just a professional networking group; it's a natural extension of my own business."
