It’s all about local businesses getting to know each other, build trust and help each other learn and grow.

We also share news on other networking events in Burton on Trent and the surrounding areas.

Our members regularly share helpful advice and give presentations that will support your business.

If you are a local business with good integrity and customer focussed service then you will find the members are committed to supporting you with advice, tips and referrals.

The statistics show that if you get a warm introduction to a business from someone that already has a relationship with them then there is a greater than 80% chance you will get the work!

We are committed to making that process work for you.

You will always get a warm, friendly welcome from our members. It can be nerve-wracking going to a networking event for the first time, meeting new people and doing new things.

We know that as we were there too at the start of our journey.

You can rest tassured that you will be welcomed and put at ease, and valued.

There will be no pressure to join as we highly value guests attending the networking meets either just to get to know other businesses or to see if we are right for each other.

If you are just starting up a business and need to meet professionals with high integrity to support your new venture then simply attending as a guest could be your best first move. We promise!

This is probably the most important part of our success as a local networking group for Burton on Trent, South Derbyshire and East Staffordshire.

We are truly independant, run by the members, for the members and setting our own policies and guidelines.

  • Every member works ethically and with high levels of service.
  • We meet weekly to really get to know each other and each others businesses
  • Members regularly have seperate 1 to 1s to get to know each other even better.
