“It’s Marketing”, Jim, “but not as we know it” – or is it?

May 17, 2016


Bristol Business Network Next event 22nd June 2016 at The Bristol Hotel will take you on a journey to the final frontiers – social media, networking and lunch – a combination that will surely enhance your business through a plethora of opportunities – all a very logical part of ensuring that your business lives long and prospers

You’ll experience what Bristol’s longest running lunch time networking group can bring to your business. Business Network SW has been operating successfully for over 23 years (beginning star date 12 5 1993) , and because we target senior decision-makers it is all about establishing meaningful business relationships – not a ‘hard sell’ (no phasers required!)

Research has long supported the view that networking is a key factor in the success of fast growth companies. It allows the business person to build new business relationships, ‘knowledge share’ and generate business opportunities at the same time. Many business people prefer face-to-face networking opportunities because they prefer actually knowing and meeting who they intend to do business with.

But don’t just take my word for it – come (even teleport) and chat to our members and let then tell you why they find our format so effective.
