The Business Network is a structured lunchtime networking group with a national reputation for excellence. This is your opportunity to experience business to business networking at its best. It will only cost you the price of a lunch plus a couple of hours of your time.

At each business network event we have a seating plan which ensures a good selection of businesses at each table. Membership is corporate and by invitation. We allow 4 to 5 members in each business category.

The Business Network has a unique and very effective format and has been helping businesses grow since 1994. These events attract business owners, directors and senior level staff i.e. the decision makers.

The Business Network events in North & West Yorkshire take place in York, Leeds & Wakefield.

Business networking is a fantastic way to build and grow your business. We support the decision makers from a wide range of businesses who wish to promote their business and expand their network of service providers.

Be your Brand Ambassador in 2020 and beyond!

You already know how important it is to position your brand in front of the right audience – and the BEST person to cheerlead your business is YOU!

My workshop will be an introduction to the art of self-promotion for business. Using the magic of good PR and planning, along with the power of social media, online content and the Press and media, you can reap the rewards and gain some fantastic exposure for your business!

BUT – whilst self-promotion can be highly effective and give you great results, there are pitfalls to beware of and a few simple ground rules to follow…….
