The Benefits of Membership
Your Network Host - A valuable and committed support as they will work tirelessly on your behalf, getting you in front of the people you want to meet.
Free Educational Seminars - There is a wealth of knowledge and experience within The Membership that is freely available to you. Try and ensure that you attend the Free Pre-lunch Seminars offered by Members on a wide variety of topics; and if you wish to increase the profile of your company further why not offer to present a seminar yourself. We undertake to do the promoting of the seminar for you.
Free Speaker slots - If running a seminar is not for you then why not take one of our after lunch speaker slots? A great way to promote your Business to up to 80 people per lunch.
Free Stand At The Events - Take a Free Stand at the monthly events a give members and visitors an even greater insight into what your company can provide.
Monthly Meetings With Senior Decision Makers - We restrict attendees at events to a senior level, people who can influence the 'buying and selling' within their organisation.
Members only evening events - Cannot make the lunch time event? Then there is a great chance to cath up with friends and newer members at our popular members only events in the early evening.
Free Access To The National List Of Members - with 24 groups spread across the UK there are over 2000 busines contacts you can potentially connect with.
5% cap on any specific category - Unlike BNI we belive there is always room for choice in our group. At the same time we know our members enjoy the diversity of the people they can connect with at every meeting. It also means that we operate a strict 5% policy on member growth - which means in a 100 member group you will never see more than 5 members per category. Diversity rules!
New visitors each month - We work hard in the background to encourage the contacts you want to meet to come and join us for lunch. Our sophisticated table seating planning software then makes the introductions happen - like magic.
Promote your Business and events through the blog - dedicated to the Chester area our blog is a valuable resource for members to promote their Business, share their knowledge and tell the world about their successes.
Linked in group - with online networking playing a bigger part in all our lives we also provide a members only group for Chester members.

What members and guests say
"I just wanted to say thank you for organising another great lunch today. I cannot believe it is a year since I started coming to the Business Network Chester events. I really enjoy coming to the events and it is a testament to your enthusiasm and great organisational skills that they are such a success month on month.I tried a lot of different networking events before coming to the Business Network and never really felt that I got that much out of them, despite my efforts, but your philosophy of building trust and getting to know people is a good fit with my own thoughts on business networking and definitely seems to work.I have recently started to really feel the benefit of being in the Network and am very much looking forward to continuing to meet and get to know the other members over the next 12 months."
