Business Network SW has been operating successfully for over 23 years, and because we target senior decision-makers it is all about establishing meaningful business relationships – not a ‘hard sell’.

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. Don’t just take my word for it – come and chat to our members and let then tell you why they find our format so effective.

Business Seminar before lunch hosted by Jonathan O’Shea – The Alternative Board

The Timeless Principles of Exceptional Businesses 

Jonathan’s presentation will be covering a few of those timeless principles that, will get you thinking differently about their business, how they run them and leave the meeting with some fresh ideas about how they run their businesses.  What a great way to start 2017!

There will be copies of the book TAB produced book to mark its 25th anniversary entitled The Timeless Principles of Exceptional Businesses available for everybody that attends as well as a special “test drive The Alternative Board offer” – more details on the day…

Jonathan brings together business owners from noncompeting sectors in a group setting – similar to a board of directors. Those business owners help each other to identify opportunities and solve the challenges that we each face in our own companies – it could be said TAB provides 7 Non Executive Directors for less than the price of one! 

Coffee and networking from 10.00am – seminar starts at 10.30am and runs until 11.45am. (optional, always rewarding, included in the price and a great networking opportunity)

Followed by THE Networking Lunch

Drinks and informal, free range networking from 11.45am.  Sit down at 12.30pm for 2 course networking lunch with coffee.  Finishing at 2pm.
