We do network – based on Know, Like Trust – and celebrate our successes and give Thanks!

Then join us for our August 10th event at The Double Tree – and also learn how to create a Killer pitch to win those tenders – keeping the Customer at the heart of what you do!

Members come together for RHS Tatton

We are delighted to announce that we will be at RHS Tatton on July 19th and 20th as we are involved with 2 of the fabulous gardens – one of which being our very own Jane Bingham of The Cheshire Garden.

Jane and her lovely team asked us to be involved with their ‘Remember Me’ garden, raising awareness and funds for the Altzeimers and Dementia charities through the making and auctioning off of a beautiful hexagonal shaped bench for the garden that our lovely Dan has made. We hope it raises oodles of cash for this fantastic cause!

We are also involved with the Crohns and Colitis garden for which Simon has made an epically emotive piece – see pics. So, please come along and support RHS Tatton this year and all the fab charities involved.

Lego, outsourcing and Giving

Not 3 words you might expect to see as a headline ever – but when did we ever do anything people expect?

The Network that keeps on giving and learning – saw a fabulous seminar lead by our fabulous resident outsource experts – Maja from The Admin Office and Phil of Sollertia.

Then lots and lots of great connections to learn about – where people gave information, shared their contacts and knowledge and just simply got to know how they can help each other.

Finally – the lego! Abbey Gate college brought an amazing lego set – built to help launch their fundraising for a new all weather pitch.

So – want to find out what 3 things will be in the mix next month? Come along and join us Thursday 6th July at the newly refurbished Double Tree! 

Positive, proactive People deliver positive proactive results!

We welcomed almost 90 to our event this month – and the thing that sets them apart – their approach to people!

Kirsty Craig and the team shared their vast experience and knowledge in the art of securing and retaining talent through positive proactive people processes.

Then as usual – a blend of open and strategic networking – with each table perfectly planned to make new contacts, deepen relationships, and satisfy the members requests of who they want to meet.

For an added bonus – around 40 members then hot footed it to Chester races to mingle, network and enjoy this early summer sun!

So – join us on 8th June at The Chester Grosvenor and check what you have been missing!

April answers all our questions!

Yet another amazing event in April awaits! We are looking forward to welcoming over 80 businesses to our event- all of them excited and willing to listen, learn and help each other.

Morris and Co will kick us off by hosting a post Budget and accountancy surgery – answering all your questions post the recent budget.

Then – delighted to say we have a host of Thank yous and testimonials to share – it will be a pleasure to announce them all – from fantastic charity fundraising, to real appreciation for real, high quality meaningful referrals.

Good to note that when referrals happen in our network – its based on a real need – rather than manufactured – they are genuine, no pressure referrals – and as a result yield massive benefits for our members.

So – ready to network authentically, with no pressure – other than a desire to help others?

Lovely words from a returning member….

We are delighted that Julia Worthington of Amber Consulting has returned to the fold.

Here are her reasons why….

“Even after I left, you personally recommended Amber Consulting to Abbey Gate College, what I do is so specialist that there may not be many organisations in the network that can use my services, however you remembered me and what I do, which has led to a partnership that is proving successful for Abbey Gate, and for me, and has lasted well over 12 months, so far. 

Last year I was invited as a guest of Abbey Gate, and to stand in for the lovely Olivia, both of these visits reminded me what a great group this is.


I love the energy in the room when we all get together, I have been to many networking groups and this is unique


When I was in the wilderness, not a member, I regularly recommend this group to the not for profits I worked with as a great place to start business networking.”

Thanks Julia-great to see you back!
