Business Networking events in Cheshire
About our Founder
Tracy has lead the Business Networking group in Chester since June 2010, supporting Business networking in Cheshire throughout that time.
As a past senior leader in organisations such as Adidas, Reebok, Rockport and Speedo, Tracy has always combined a good head for Business with a passion for connecting people to get better Business results.
As her 2 daughters approached the age where school holidays would be a key challenge to juggle, she took the bold decision to break away from corporate life, and set up her own Business – to work flexibly, whilst keep intertwined within the Business Community.
Importantly for Tracy -she wanted to stay connected with changes in the Business landscape, keep her brain active, and broaden her horizons away from her Sports and Textiles background.
Upon leaving Tracy had that dawning realisation “ARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH” I need to go and network!
After testing the water with “those” weekly groups, free networking events, Chamber meetings and a variety of others, Tracy focused her attention on fully immersing and committing to helping others in the Business Network.
Tracy had spent 3 years as a member herself in The Business Network Manchester groups, BEFORE launching The Business Network Chester. She researched what other business networking events and groups supported Cheshire Business leaders – and saw a gap for a high quality group.
Those 3 years as a member in business networking groups in Manchester gave her a unique perspective into what it takes to build a Business from the ground up – and how important being a part of a business networking group is: through the help you receive, the help you can give others – as well as this approach allowing you to use your time effectively, and meet quality connections with a shared ethos for business networking.
The launch of a Business Networking group for Cheshire Businesses
As a result she honed a positive, relationship based, quality network – and saw an opportunity to launch a business networking group for Cheshire businesses. She based the monthly business networking events in the City of Chester, serving the Cheshire and North Wales and Wirral Business communities.
Over 60% of the founder members are still in this business networking group of around 100 strong Businesses from Cheshire, and the business networking events continue to welcome new people, collaborate, innovate and connect successful Business leaders and decision makers in Chester and Cheshire.
