What our members and visitors say...

I happily renewed my membership with The Business Network South Manchester yesterday hosted by Simon & Win. Why? It's structured, director level networking which works for me and the kind of businesses I want to be introduced to. Plus there's an amazing extended network I have access to... With a couple of contacts i have met in the group we're working on developing what will be the biggest production project of my career so far. Renewing was a bit of a no-brainer....

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.
