The Business Network Peterborough - July 2016 Event

On a glorious summer's day almost 30 senior contacts continued to build those key business relationships at the Holiday Inn Peterborough West.

The event began with a thought provoking, informative and inter-active seminar by Allison Purkiss from Anchor - Clayburn Court. The subject was "Understanding Dementia - Is Your Business Dementia Friendly" and the small but enthusiastic group of attendees gained a real insight into the effects of this horrendous disease of the brain.  At the end of the seminar we were all presented with our Dementia Friends badge to wear with pride.

The lunch as always was vibrant and conversations flowed around the room with many important connections being made among our members and 8 guest companies.  Our hosts at the Holiday Inn Peterborough West provided an excellent lunch with superb service.

Our lunch speaker, Gill Searl from Linguagloss, gave a short inspirational presentation about her forthcoming charitable efforts to raise money for Bowel Cancer by taking part in a mini-triathlon.

The Holiday Inn Peterborough West hosted more than 40 members and guests at our June event.

There was a superb buzz in the room as senior decision makers from 11 guest companies joined 30 members for our latest event this week.  The event began with a fabulous seminar entitled "How To Sell As A Trusted Adviser" presented by Caroline Robinson which was greatly received by those who attended.  This was, as always, followed by a period of general networking where many connections and interesting conversations were had.

Network on the Move

The Business Network, in association with Virgin Rail and Regionplus, is helping build closer links between Manchester and the recently launched London group.

Using a private First Class coach from Manchester Piccadilly to London Euston, Manchester members were able to Network on the Move and then meet members and guests at the DoubleTree by Hilton West End for the Business Network London networking event.

"We feel we are in a unique position to help broker stronger links between the Manchester and London business communities" said Business Network owner Helen Bennett, who also personally hosts the monthly events in both centres.

"I’ve come across plenty of business networks in my years running professional football clubs and in consultancy; most are good, but this one is exceptional. The level of professional organisation and engagement of The Business Network makes me want to contribute my own experience and contacts. In turn, I expect to learn what's going on in the region and pick up new ways of doing things - supporting each other in this way benefits everyone."
