What members and guests say

"The Business Network lunches attract high quality attendees and the organisers put a great deal of effort into understanding the kind of contacts that each member is looking to make. The result is that more often than not you find yourself sitting with other members with whom there is genuine scope for you to do business with, making the experience both enjoyable and very worthwhile."

"I have been a member of The Business Network Chester from the start and always come away from the seminars and lunches with great new connections, leads and a feeling that I am getting to know the business community in Chester more and more with every visit. At Clatterbridge Cancer Research our approach is very much long term and that suits the ethos of BNC, it’s not about hard sell and more about long term relationships and building up connections. This year Tracy has gone above and beyond and took part in our major fundraising event Come Dancing, as you would expect she gave it 110% and is our reigning champion! Huge thank you to Tracy and Hayley for really making us welcome every month and bringing a real benefit to the team at CCR"
