OUR NEXT EVENT

What members and guests say

"Sharon runs a thoroughly professional outfit at The Business Network - but I don't mean professional as in stuffy, austere and pressured. Rather, it has been from the first an extremely welcoming environment where everyone's knowledge and expertise is respected and the emphasis is on quality relationships. As the meetings occur regularly (accompanied by some fine food and in some beautiful locations) we get to, in Sharon's words "know, like and trust" each other - surely a prerequisite for any sort of friendship or business relationship to blossom. I particularly like the way Sharon manages to make everyone feel included - always with half an eye on the room to make sure of this. If Carlsberg did hostesses......It's lovely to talk business in such a convivial environment and we have already formed some valuable connections which will drive our business forward - almost all of these would not have occurred in the normal course of events so it's a definite win-win situation. Follow-up from Sharon is also excellent - it's clear she takes great pride in the service she provides. Thank you."
