The Business Connection is an independent business networking club for owners, directors and senior business executives throughout the Tees Valley area. The club focusses on assisting members in growing their businesses through referrals. Each of our members has their own circle of business and personal contacts. When one of our members sees an opportunity for another member to do business within their contacts, they make the introduction. A simple, friendly and cost effective way of doing business.
The Business Connection is based in Middlesbrough but has members from across the Tees Valley and further afield.
Thousands of pounds of business passed
Members refer the other members to their contacts, resulting in £1000s of new business and access to work they may never have known about. We record the business passed between the group members so we can see how effective business networking with The Business Connection has been for them.
Membership is restricted to one person from each profession so you won’t meet three accountants, two printers and four web designers at our meetings – you won’t have to compete for business. There may an overlap between the professions of two or more members so each member has a primary business category.
No hard selling – just business networking
At The Business Connection there is no pressure to pass referrals to members. We want all referrals to be a real chance of doing business, so we don’t pass a “maybe” or a “perhaps” across the table. All we ask is that you to look out for genuine referrals. If you have a lead for another member, that’s fine – we’ll list it as a lead. If that lead becomes business, we’ll add it to the total.
Membership is just £50 per year and is open to business owners, directors and decision makers. A meeting fee of £10 is payable every fortnight.
