<p>Business Community networking meetings are <strong>great fun</strong> - and <strong>good for business</strong> too! The members are all <strong>genuinely lovely people</strong>, the <strong>banter is enjoyable</strong>, and <strong>everyone is out to help each other</strong>. 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.</p>

<p>One of my <strong>favourite networking events</strong>. <strong>Good people, fun but structured meetings</strong> 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.</p>
