I, and I think the other regular members of the group would also agree, really look forward to attending the Business Builders (Fareham Solent) networking group every two weeks at the Holiday Inn in Fareham.
I have been networking since I started my business back in 2009 and have found it very useful, having over this time visited many different groups. I am a great believer in working together with other small businesses and helping each other out and finding opportunities to build relationships with clients and other business people.
If you are a local business person and do any networking, you will know that there are many networking events occurring regularly in the area but quite a few of these seem to struggle these days with numbers, perhaps because there are so many.
Not a problem it seems for Business Builders and our always enthusiastic and entertaining chairperson Malcolm Archibald. Since I joined more than a year ago, it has gone from strength to strength and it has become very popular with numbers constantly growing. We have a core of regular “members” (although there is actually no formal membership or annual fee – perhaps one of the attractions) as well as a fairly constant flow of new attendees and visitors.
As you can see in the video above, we had a room full again this week (more than 40 local business people) who networked, presented their businesses and then engaged in a very interesting interactive presentation about testimonials from Russell Streeter.
I guess this post follows on from Russell’s very interesting presentation and is my testimonial for Business Builders. If you are a local business person and haven’t been along to one of our meetings yet, I can highly recommend it.
