Testimonials

Watch and listen to what some #BusComm members do and hear about what they think about being in The Business Community.

<p>This is a small enough networking group to feel like a community but big enough to have a <strong>good variety of different business types and sizes</strong>. Love the meeting structure (with a difference) which gives the chance to discuss as a whole group and <strong>share ideas</strong> rather than just speaking to the people sitting next to you. Can't recommend it more highly to anyone running their own business.</p>

A great local networking community. Excellent membership benefits alongside the traditional networking meetings with access to all members, workshops and just great support. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed my first meeting at The Business Community. The atmosphere was friendly and welcoming. Anyone new to networking would feel comfortable from the outset. The agenda was enjoyable, but business-like and informative. It was interesting to learn about all the other businesses around the table, and they showed a genuine interest in my business. What stood out for me was when we broke for a 10 minute 121 with another individual. That was a chance to establish a real connection with someone else in the room.

Geraint Williams - Fourwinds Photography Services Back to top

Since starting my business 18 months or so ago, I have gone from a networking novice to being a solid contributor through meeting and getting to know the wealth of business skills, knowledge and experience of Paul Green and the members of The Business Community. I mainly attend the Wellingborough session, but have plans to spread myself further afield in Northamptonshire during the rest of this year as membership allows this, unlike others.

The format of the meetings is fun, but has meaning ... and you can always be assured a friendly welcome (as I got recently when attending the Daventry session for the first time). I have made loads of good business contacts that I would have only made through The Business Community ... if you are starting or have recently started a business, book yourself on a session and find out for yourself ... breakfast is good too!

Andy Sarson - APS Marketing Consulting Services Back to top

The Business Community is bringing me ever-increasing levels of business; as well as invaluable business support.

Stephen Church - Copywriter Pro Back to top

In the short time I’ve been a member, The Business Community has transformed my business and I’ve met some fantastic contacts along the way. Paul Green and Stephen Church are excellent hosts and bring great charm and personality into the meeting. Highly recommended to any business - whether starting out or established.

Sam Sayer - DeType Limited Back to top

The Business Community is a vibrant networking group that successfully combines professional relationship building with business education. Paul’s engaging facilitation style enables people to bond quickly and learn from each other. The inputs provide up to date thinking to challenge the members of The Business Community to think and act differently so to improve business results.

Paul Beesley - Beyond Theory Back to top

The Business Community has been extremely helpful to my business. The meetings are well run - they have a well-defined structure, but have a good mix of formality and informality. I enjoy meeting other members, have made some good connections, got great business advice from Paul and the wider group and, last but not least, gained work whose value is several times the cost of membership.

Mark Coster - Pixooma Back to top

I really enjoy the meetings, the format works well and the atmosphere is friendly, most importantly it is not too scary if you are new to networking.  I have made some valuable business contacts over the last year that I would not have found had it not been for The Business Community.

Andi Herrington - Wallis Payroll Back to top

I really enjoy the BusComm meetings, the format works quite well and the atmosphere is very friendly, most importantly it is not too scary even when you are new to networking. I have got enough support from BusComm members, number of clients and valuable business contacts.

Ashish Kumar - Web Alliance Back to top

We can only state the quality of service and professionalism we have experienced throughout our association with The Business Community has been exemplary, and far beyond our expectations.

Bharat Panchal - C4 Secure Back to top

Thank you Paul for allowing me to be part of BusComm, I always look forward to the meetings, they are very friendly and helpful and there always seems to be a really good supply of support and advice if we need it! I have been a member now for several months and find it an excellent networking group for referrals and future business!

Caroline Haylor - Red Pepper Catering Back to top

A truly supportive group of people. We network to make friends and generate business, BusComm has done both for me. I look forward to many more years of membership and recommend this group to anyone looking to develop meaningful and profitable business relationships.

Damien O'Dwyer - Business Growth Midlands Back to top

Excellent networking group where I've met some really nice people. It has directly helped me grow my gym and I have numerous clients who go there. The group has the right balance between being friendly and actually help you grow your sales/business. I'd highly recommend going.

Darren Pyefinch - Vibrant Fit Back to top

BusComm is a business networking group like no other. It's fun, friendly and focused. The support and advice available through the group is second to none.

I've gained business as a direct result of being a member. It has enabled me to find suppliers and contacts who have been able to help my clients.

I would highly recommend the group to anyone.

Eleanor Lester - Shrewd PR Back to top

1 year ago I made the decision that I needed to start Business Networking. Scary stuff! Or so I thought. Walking into the meeting room for my first meeting was quite frankly, terrifying. I really shouldn’t have worried. I was immediately taken under the wing of one of the more experienced networkers. I can count a number of BusComm members as clients, and even more who have passed work my way. It’s important to note that there is absolutely no pressure to refer – so you truly know it’s on merit. It’s a fabulous community.

Hayley White - VirtuHR Back to top

I’ve been a member of the Business Community for many years now. I’ve got to know & develop relationships with a wide range of business people in that time. Networking is not a quick fix but it is supportive, encouraging and mutually beneficial. If you’re looking for somewhere to grow, not only your business, but yourself then I highly recommend you come along to these groups. They are exceptional value for money too.

Heather Petty - UW Back to top

Paul's Business Community combines all the best in networking. It's my number one place to keep up to date in business and gives me the personal support so necessary for the small business owner. Networking is also my chosen method of acquiring new clients and over 80% of my work comes from the wonderful people I've met across the different groups with the Community.

Jacky Sherman - The Consultants' Consultant Back to top

A great local networking community. Excellent membership benefits alongside the traditional networking meetings with access to all members, workshops and just great support. Highly recommended.

James Blacklaws - JB Commercial Finance Back to top

This is the only business network I've stuck with for the duration of my 9 years of self-employment. Developmental, supportive and friendly, I would recommend this group to anyone looking to get business, give business and learn and develop whilst doing so.

James Tarry - Cheyne Walk Club Back to top

The Business Community is what is says on the tin - a real community of businesses from a whole range of sectors. The support the group offer each other is second to none and the networking groups are always fun and a joy to attend.

Jamie Cochrane - PBC Business Recovery Back to top

We have been members for several years and find each meeting informative, friendly yet professional. There are lots of different meetings you can visit within Northamptonshire and beyond so great value for money. Well worth a visit. Would definitely recommend The Business Community.

Janet Braunston - Braunston Print Back to top

The Business Community is so much more than just a networking group, while the networking meetings are energising and fun, you get genuine community and support that I haven't experienced anywhere else. It's also brilliant value for money, reasonably price with extras that are very generous. I'd highly recommend.

Jessica Shailes - The Ideal Marketing Company Back to top

Been a member now for several years and really value the wide range of member benefits including the free training. There is great variety in the membership profiles, the meetings are informative, collaborative and importantly fun and now having an online meeting offer means you can get even more from your membership

Jo Thurman - Personal Career Management Back to top

It is the best networking group I have ever been part of. The other members have given me such a warm welcome into the community and they are all supportive towards your business. The way Paul Green has structured the business community is fantastic and very well thought through. There is a whole host of opportunities to give your business exposure.

Joseph Mogale - Strategic Web Success Back to top

I have been a member of The Business Community for several years. I love Paul’s groups, they have the right balance of social and business focus as well as providing opportunities to develop your skills. In addition, they play a major role in revenue generation for my business and I will remain a member for many years to come!

Julie Futcher - The Sales Ace Back to top

Buscomm comes highly recommended as a networking group. The members are incredibly supportive and Paul is always open to new ideas and developing the service to meet the members' changing needs, ensuring an exemplary customer experience. Also, the free workshops available to members and consistent access to the collective brain network of other supportive businesses makes joining a no-brainer.

Kirti Patel - Career Inspiration Back to top

This is a small enough networking group to feel like a community but big enough to have a good variety of different business types and sizes. Love the meeting structure (with a difference) which gives the chance to discuss as a whole group and share ideas rather than just speaking to the people sitting next to you. Can't recommend it more highly to anyone running their own business.

Margot Clarke - Margot Clarke Consultancy Back to top

Friendly atmosphere - people don't take themselves too seriously, there are laughs and jokes mixed in with a genuine sense that everybody is looking out for each other. Good structure to the meetings - they are not too formal or overly casual and a great place to pick up tips (not always business-related). Free courses for members - I have been on several courses put on by other members and always come away having learnt something useful.

Martin Beckley - The Creative Astronaut Back to top

I have been a member of The Business Community for a number of years now. The unique mix of friendly banter with professional format and resources has been invaluable for my own business growth. I have made friendships, referred people and grown my client base thanks to The Business Community. I like there is no lockout, the meetings are a manageable size and no yearly contract.

Marie-Louise O'Neill - Lovely Evolution Back to top

From starting my own business just over 12 months ago, the support of this network group has been amazing. It is great value for money and there are free workshops to help you build your business. I would highly recommend The Business Community.

Nicky Buckley - East Midlands HR Back to top

The networking sessions are always very lively and enjoyable, and I have found many of the additional training sessions invaluable. By far the biggest benefit for me however, is the feeling of community. I really enjoy coming together with others in similar situations and having the opportunity to broaden my business network. Most importantly, no matter how much life gets in the way of me being able to attend meetings, I’ve always been warmly welcomed back into the fold and almost forgotten I was ever away!

Nicola Hawkins - My Aide Back to top

This networking group is brilliant and has really helped me and my business. I would recommend this group to anyone and it is great value for money. The group is very friendly and helpful so I'd highly recommend going.

Nishi Patel - N-Accounting Back to top

I'm a long-term member of a national networking group. I've now also joined BusComm and I'm finding it a breath of fresh air. A very welcoming and supportive atmosphere where the focus seems to be about helping each other instead of sell, sell, sell. BusComm meetings don't take themselves too seriously but are still professional and informative.

Paul Drake - WhiteStar Back to top

I have done lots of networking over the years, and I love The Business Community. It hits just the right mix of being structured and organised while still being a friendly and relaxed place to be. The business world would be a lonelier place without it.

Paul Marks - Michael Paul Accountants Back to top

A great group of people. Meetings are well structured and the format is helpful to meeting a number of people. The additional features of being a member with having access to all members and lots of other features too numerous to mention.

Paul Simpson - TaxAssist Market Harborough Back to top

Buscomm and the surrounding support and structure is an extremely valuable resource and method of finding new business. The various meetings are well structured and allow people to effectively network and meet new business contacts. I would definitely recommend BusComm to any small or medium sized businesses looking to find more work.

Phil Barnett - PJB Photography Back to top

The Business Community offers a wide range of professions many of whom I have got to know and trust over the years. The meetings are relaxed yet informative, enabling you to 'tap into' the knowledge and experience of fellow members. I would certainly recommend The Business Community; I would say that it is probably the best network group that I have ever attended.

Roger Marlow - Obsidian Financial Back to top

I've been part of this business networking group since first stepping out into business on my own in 2016. It has been a fabulous group to be part of not just because of the referrals I've had but also because of the fantastic support you get from the other members. Highly recommended.

Russell Parker - QRB Management Consulants Back to top

Paul's BusComm networking events are very friendly and welcoming. There are a great opportunity to meet with other businesses. The support and training that is offered along with the membership is incredible and great value for money.

Samantha Cameron - Samantha Cameron Social Back to top

The Business Community is a top class networking group. The meetings are great, with a relaxed but professional feel. The members are all very supportive and Paul does a great job of keeping the meetings interesting as well as providing more than just a meeting. I would highly recommend them to anyone that is looking for networking opportunities.

Sean Clegg - Tiny Jungle Back to top

Networking is my primary route to market for my business. The Business Community provides a valuable part of my networking strategy and has a great welcoming and interesting forum for like-minded business professionals.

Simon Evans - WPA Back to top

BusComm is a great group of friendly business people offering a chance to expand your networking across different counties. You also benefit from a wealth of business knowledge which you can call upon to help with any issues you may need to overcome. Paul promotes your company as well as you as an individual within the group and externally. It's all automated and a no pressure approach.

Simon Philp - TEC Fire & Security Back to top

One of my favourite networking events. Good people, fun but structured meetings with useful connections being made, 1-2-1s, and a member presentation. No pressure and no scoresheets, but of course you get out what you put in and it’s all about relationship building. The additional member benefits over and above the networking itself is where the gold is.

Steven Mather - Nexa Law Back to top

I started my own HR business about 5 years ago and have been a member of The Business Community for almost the same length of time. Not only have I gained business from networking with the group but I've also found like-minded and supportive business owners who are always willing to listen and offer their advice. It is great value for money and I'd highly recommend giving it a go.

Sue Pardy - face2faceHR Back to top

Business Community networking meetings are great fun - and good for business too! The members are all genuinely lovely people, the banter is enjoyable, and everyone is out to help each other. I really like the format of the meetings, and Paul is constantly working to provide ways for the network to benefit each other. It's great to be a part of it.

Tim Freed - Book That In Back to top

BusComm offers structured yet relaxed and friendly networking, but it's so much more than that; the support of fellow businesses is fantastic, through good times they are there to cheer you on and during the more difficult times they are there to offer invaluable practical support. This fantastic community of business owners is second to none. I cannot recommend Paul Green and the Business Community highly enough.
