What members and guests say

"Imagine a networking group that runs like clockwork, with no scary moments, no feeling of wasting your time and no dread when it's time for the next one! I tried a number of different networking groups in the early days of my business and the Preston Business-Network was the only one I have kept on. It is run superbly well by experienced businesswomen Karen Tems supported by warm, friendly helpers. They only allow professionals, senior staff and decision-makers to join, which ensures that contacts made are top-quality. Just the number of strategic business partnerships I have made makes it worth my membership fee, but I have also made sales and had referrals. The free seminars are also excellent and have included some top speakers - including Ian Brodie and Will Kintish. Come along as a guest one month, we will all make you very welcome."

"Having been involved in many business networking over the years, I have found Preston Business Network to be one of the best organised and most enjoyable meetings I have attended. Every meeting is very well planned / hosted, the agenda is relaxed, always kept to time and held the best venues available in the area. Business Network provides a valuable opportunity for our business to network locally and will remain a vital component of our face to face marketing for many years to come."
