Using our format to develop business relationships with other local companies based on our “Know like trust” philosophy – means that over time you will build up a referral network. This means that over time you will receive genuine referrals and be able to make them also to fellow members – without the pressure or demands to do so.
Monthly Meetings with key Decision Makers
The Business Network restricts attendees at lunches to a senior level in order to influence the amount of decisions actually made over the lunch period. Attendees can influence the buying & selling process of their organizations and are encouraged to “buy & sell within The Network” wherever possible.
Proactive hosts brokering the introductions you would like to make.
We love networking! Our aim is to facilitate the right connections for you so you can grow your business. So if there is a door that you need opening, set us the challenge and by tapping into our extensive national network we will find a way to craft introductions for you.
Free Use of this Members Blog where you can access great information from members, and post information to help promote your Business.
Introductions to New Businesses
There are always new companies in attendance at the monthly lunches, and every month’s table plan means you are always meeting new people – or reconnecting with members interested in what you can do to help them.
Host an Educational Seminars
There is a wealth of knowledge and experience within The Membership that is freely available to you. Try and ensure that you attend the Free Pre-Lunch Seminars offered by fellow Members on a wide variety of topics, and if you wish to increase the profile of your company further why not offer to host a seminar yourself? It’s a perfect way to share your knowledge and expertise.
Host the after-lunch speaker slot
Our after-lunch speaker slot is a great way to update members, seek help, and promote successes in your business.
Access to the Members directory – for Chester and the groups across the UK.
With a listing on the national Business Network website, http://www.business-network.co.uk/ , where you can add photos, information about your company – and request to meet members through your host.
Bring your pop up banner to Events
Promote your Business visually by bringing a pop up banner to our monthly lunches and give both members and visitors an even greater insight into what your company can provide.
Special Corporate Events and Product Launches
Within the format of the monthly events, The Business Network provides an excellent opportunity to cost effectively entertain corporate clients. Inviting a guest or taking a Corporate Table is a great way for your customers/suppliers to get to know you and your company, and for you to get to know them. And if you are launching a new product or service, The Business Network event provides an effective environment to “inform”.
Special Member only events
Through the year we will also have gatherings in a relaxed format – an afternoon at the races, members evenings, Wine tastings and through supporting our member charities.
