What our members say

"After attending networking events over the last 20 years, I just wanted to say you are undoubtedly one of the best networking hosts I?ve met. Keep up the good work. Genuinely - The Business Network Central & East Lancashire is one big happy family."

Nasir Kothia, eBusiness UK Ltd

"Eden Marketing has been a member of the Business Network for the past five years. The morning seminars are engaging and you leave with lots of food for thought and actions you can apply immediately. The members are experts in their field, generous with their time and conversations around the table are interesting, giving you quality time to get to know both guests and members. The Business Network is beneficial to Eden Marketing and also to myself as a Director. I have developed a strong network of trusted specialists who I can call upon for both Eden Marketing and our Clients. The business has grown through referrals and direct business and I can't speak highly enough of Karen Tems and the fantastic members who make up the Business Network."

Jean Atkinson, Jean Atkinson Consulting

"When I first joined the Business Network I was a litle apprehensive. I had attended various networking groups in the past but hadn't particularly enjoyed or benfited from the experience. Karen Tems spent time coaching me on how to get the most from being a member of the group and the many opportunities which were available that would help me successfully market my business. The welcome I received from the outset, both from the members and organisers was warm, friendly and professional and has enabled me to develop fruitful business relationships. I would personally recommend the Business Network to anyone seeking to expand their professional network and develop their business."

Jane Ayrton, MJN Training & Hypnotherapy

"If you are unsure about what Karen Tem's The Business Network Central and East Lancashire can do for you and your business read on. I joined Karen Tem's Central and East Lancashire group well over a year ago and have to say this is the best networking group I have been to. Why? Everyone at the monthly meetings is open minded and there's always a positive vibe in the air. Each month you are surrounded by 90+ senior decision makers and business owners/directors and get to spend quality time before, during and after each meeting starting and developing relationships. This is besides the time you get with those on your table, over lunch. You are actively encouraged to continue developing those relationships outside of the meeting. What about Karen? Karen, to me, is the most amazing and perfect person to be running a network. I will never forget the first time I met Karen, as I walked up to meet her she welcomed me with my business nickname ... we had never even met before. She was so welcoming and ensured I wasn't left on my own. When I sat down at the table, I was sat with decision makers from my target market (Karen had obviously done research on me and seen who my target market was) and that just blew me away. Karen takes time to get to know you and I have had the pleasure of 1-2-1s on 2 occasions and through those Karen has continued to build on the huge respect I have for her. She is genuinely interested in seeing you grow and not just on a business level. This continues at every monthly meeting. You know Karen is looking to help you be with the people that are your target audience (this is not even about the people you are sat with, it is about the people they know). Karen has the most engaging personality and is genuinely looking to help everyone in her network. It is an absolute pleasure to be in a room with her. On a side note, she also runs great training sessions, full of fun whilst you learn. I have taken a lot from the session I attended last week and will make even more from my membership. If you've never been before, make time for you and your business, you won?t regret it. It was the best decision I have made for my business. Thank you Karen for EVERYTHING. "

Anne Williamson, Customer Love Ltd

"Your event was first class for any business owner looking to meet other Key Decision Makers, building long-term relationships and generating quality referrals, all within an informal, organised and professional environment."

Mubarak Chati, 1 Events Media Ltd

"I'm well into my 4th year with The Business Network and I haven't looked back. It's the only group with the perfect balance of people, location and purpose. I have stopped all breakfast networking and recognise that this group is all about building lasting, meaningful business relationships. The financial returns have been excellent. This meeting is the first thing in my diary each month, and I look forward to meeting new members and learning more, every time."

Matt Chandler, Chandler Digital Ltd

"The professionalism and fun that Karen brings to each event is impressive. Over the years I have attended many networks and The Business Network is by far and away the best! The clients we have gained through this group have been quality clients who have remained with us."

Suzanne Waring, The Helping Hands Group

"The Business Network: exceptionally organised, beautifully delivered, a wonderful platform which offers the opportunity to create long lasting links and develop meaningful business relationships."
