BFB First Anniversary
Business Focus Burton was formed a year ago with around ten members. One year later our non-profit making, friendly, engaging, informative and supportive group has almost doubled it’s membership.
Relatively new member Scott Durband comments, “It has changed my working life, I can now speak confidently. My work is valued and acknowledged, and I know how to take my business forward. ”The one seat policy means we have had to turn down a few interested new members.”
This year we have welcomed a new baby, had an exclusive trip to Epsom Races, by invitation to a private enclosure, apart from our regular Christmas Lunch and invitations to more quality networking and social events than we can manage. We have also had a celebratory BBQ to mark BFB’s first anniversary and NVC Ltd’s 20th Anniversary. We are visiting a vineyard, distillery, and fishery in August.
The difference seems to be authenticity in a world crying out for integrity and real human interaction. Guests and new members all comment that they feel comfortable and welcome.
A considerable amount of work has been exchanged and referred between members, now that trust and understanding has been established.
Membership of the group provides access to a wealth expertise, advice & services. We have a Master Locksmith, with up to date access to security, locks and fire doors, web design and SEO, design and advertising, marketing, PR and content rich writing, social media, a lot of us have sorted out our pensions and finances, T’s and C’s. Some of us now have our accounts professionally rectified by our accountancy firm who has saved some members £1,000’s in tax, our computers are now professionally backed up by NVC (in the UK – affects insurance) with access to hardware, comms and systems, proof reading and copy editing, photography, professional electrical works, mortgages and equity release by someone we trust, the launch of a new magazine in Swadlincote. We receive special travel and bespoke holiday offers, wills and probate with a difference, GDPR and privacy pages, training, CCTV and photobooths to name but a few.
Guests always welcome.
Happy Birthday first birthday BFB!
