When you think of attending a Business Networking event – which of these best describes you?
- It would not happen – I hate the thought of attending business networking events?
- How on earth can you network when you have to be socially distanced and venues are closed?
- It’s only ever about Hard sell – why would I do that – online business networking or face to face?
- I’ve given up on face to face business networking events because I never meet REAL decision makers that have authority to buy
- The referrals are meaningless – they are just fake to tick a box – online business networking or face to face.
- Actually I’m a seasoned WEEKLY business networker – but I’m thinking it’s time to take the next step and join a Business Networking Group that provides access to bigger, better quality Businesses – even if that’s online.
- I want to grow my business but need to meet genuine honest trustworthy and encouraging people to share ideas, problems, solutions how do I do that now?
- I need some quality local reliable suppliers and fast – where can I find them?
- I’ve just left a Corporate role to get back some autonomy and freedom in my life. So I’m trying to establish my own Business- and want to connect with others that have trodden that same path- how can I find them?
- I’ve been made redundant due to COVID- so now is the time to set up my own Business – where do I start?
Then maybe our Chester business networking group is right for you?
Our Unique Philosophy for
Chester Business Networking
Now in our 10th year in operation, the Business Network Chester holds a guiding philosophy for our Chester Business Networking group.
When relationships are built on a principle of “Know, Like, Trust” those business relationships are more sustainable, equitable ethical and productive for all. Our Chester Business Networking members have a unique perspective for success; they join us to learn, collaborate, innovate and help each other – together to gain successful outcomes for all their clients and customers.
Through these testing times we have gone above and beyond to service and support our members. This Chester business networking group is no side hustle for us – it’s what we do day in day out.
We are here for our members AND for you – the new to networking, the businesses that need to network in a positive bigger more proactive group, and those of you that think – now is the time to take my network to the next level.
The very best way to understand how The Business Network Chester can help you and the Business community in Chester and Cheshire and across the North West is to attend one of our Business Networking events – CURRENTLY OPEN TO VISITORS ONLINE . MEMBER ONLY EVENTS ARE SMALL GROUP FACE TO FACE
What makes The Chester Business Networking group different?
We know that 98% of people hate attending Business networking events. And yet through the recent times- our members have adapted to online business networking and some actually prefer it! No travel, no sweaty palms – the screen has become our friend.
That aside – we take the same care and attention in building every single business networking event and leave nothing to chance for our members that like to do their Business Networking with other businesses in Cheshire and beyond.
Every Chester Business Networking event guarantees a warm welcome and quality business connections. We spend 3-4 days planning the business networking tables/breakout rooms ahead of every Chester business networking event. Our sophisticated seating planning software mixed with the time we spend getting to know members AND you as a visitor is what makes us unique and ensures that YOU are meeting the best connections for YOU at our business networking events.
Although we have around 80 members in our Chester Business Network group here in Chester, we are attracting Businesses from all over Cheshire, North Wales, The Wirral and Wrexham and beyond through these extraordinary times.
We also operate a strict 5% maximum for any category – which means our business networking group is diverse and membership of our group highly sought after, with wait lists in many categories. To accommodate and maximise the opportunity to grow networks we are offering a unique “Online” membership over the coming months that may have to option to switch to full Chester Business networking group membership in the future.
We also guarantee that competitors will never sit on the same table at our Chester Business Networking events and seating requests from members, along with our member insights, and network magic are woven into the business network event seating plan.
We ensure each attending Company can meet the companies and types of Business they want to meet at our Chester Business Network events – be it to buy as well as “sell” – but many of our most successful members don’t “sell” – they solve problems for friends, contacts and business acquaintances that have built up a strong relationship through attending our business networking events based on “Know like trust”. These relationships have taken on a whole new level since the recent challenging time.
That’s where our guiding philosophy has repaid us in buckets through these times. It’s exactly because we “know, like, trust” the people in our network – we have stepped up and supported, listened, shared and learnt and adapted – to create Businesses that are more sustainable, more ethical and importantly doing good.
Imagine – a Business networking group of around 80-100 trusted diverse Businesses to meet with once a month – that’s at least 50.000 connections waiting to be made – ONCE you have built trust and rapport with our fellow members.
So, are our Chester Business Networking events any good ?
Well, we’re always going to answer “YES”. You are going to have to refer to a more impartial source; our members. Over 50% of our members have been with us since 2010 launch in Chester.
