Love it or hate it – our Business Networking events could be just what you need!
- So – business networking events are like marmite – you hate them or love them – which is you?
- I’m scared/worried/put off! I hate the thought of attending business networking events?
- I’m really disappointed/frustrated/fed up with business networking events because I never meet REAL decision makers that have authority to buy. On top of that referrals are meaningless, and I’m bored of seeing the same faces week after week.
- I’m a bit lost/panicked/overwhelmed – I want to grow my business but need to find quality suppliers who I can trust, and meet genuine honest trustworthy and encouraging people to share ideas, problems, solutions but don’t know where to start?
- I’m excited – and nervous – I’ve been made redundant- so now is the time to set up my own Business – where do I start?
- I’m an old hand – just want a new tribe to connect with and help.
Then maybe our Chester business networking group is right for you?
Our Unique Philosophy for
Chester Business Networking
Now in our 11th 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.
So if when you think of business networking you feel
- Frustrated you never meet the right people?
- Worried how you will grow your business in 2021?
- Disappointed with ROI for your networking efforts?
- Put off by hard sell and weekly meetings?
- Bored seeing the same faces?
Then time to join our diverse, proactive and supportive group!
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.
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.
