Member Benefits

One of our key priorities is to give as much back to our Members as possible whether that is ongoing support or additional benefits, exclusive to The Business Network Central & East Lancashire.

We are always reviewing and exploring additional partnerships that add value to your Membership and in the meantime, you are always guaranteed to be able to:

  • Attend Monthly Events and Drop In’s
  • Promote your business through the Website, Welcome Pack and Member Database.  Share your news and offers, share your thank you’s, share your testimonials!  It all helps fellow Members to get to know you better.
  • Embrace the opportunity to take a Seminar or Speaker slot to share your expertise with group.  A great opportunity to give people more of an insight into what you really do, we can guarantee it will lead to more 121’s and we all know that leads to referrals and connections!
  • Make Seating Requests.  If you have seen a Member and/or Business Sector that you would like to know better or know you could refer business to, simply let Karen know and you will meet them at the next event either in your Breakout Room or on your Table. 
  • Be proactive. Karen is always happy to offer advice, support and to broker introductions for you.

Making Sure That You Get The Most From Your Investment

With a number of business networking options available, choosing the right one for you and your business is vital.  Of course, there is a financial implication so really consider which is going to give you the best return on your investment.    Ask yourself these questions:

  • Which group is proactive in generating leads, strategic partnerships and active referrals?
  • Which group of like-minded individuals really gets under the skin of you and your business to make the right introductions?
  • Which group regularly attracts new guests and members to widen your potential base of connections?
  • Which group allows you to increase your brand awareness and stay visible during these socially distanced times?
  • Which group is about more than just networking and offers a continuous learning experience and opportunity as well to boost your own personal development?

We believe The Business Network achieves all of this and more! By utilising our interactive workshops, seminar and speaking opportunities as well as getting to meet and know our members, we firmly believe we can make a positive difference to you and your business.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Business Network Central & East Lancashire soon and to start building business relationships.
