FREE NETWORKING EVENTS
.

The excellent networking opportunities we provide is the main reason businesses join and remain members. Regular attendees report that the business networking we provide is as beneficial, or more cost-effective, than any other form of business communication they undertake.  Our most successful networkers tell us that they get the best from networking events by being prepared to buy as well as sell, attending regularly, referring business to other members and working the room effectively.

When we were first approached to join we were a little sceptical as to how useful the networking would actually be.  However we have found all the sessions really well organised and a genuine opportunity for us to develop contacts and practice our skills.  It is particularly beneficial that the membership is for the whole company not just an individual, as this has allowed all of our management team to attend sessions of particular relevance/interest for them. - Liz Love Z-Card Ltd
