Caroline Coward - Director

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.

Alpha’s v Boomers – has technology changed that much?

I’m going to take a stroll through technology from Baby Boomers through to Generation Alpha with what I’ve seen through my working life and how I’ve seen it change what we do in business. 

Yes – I might refer to a few things to do with telecoms; but rather than being a workshop on changing your life, hopefully it’ll bring back some memories for us dinosaurs…. and bring a few laughs for the people who are midway through the timescales mentioned, and perhaps make the late Generation Z’s realise how lucky they are to have been born when they were.
