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.
