Connect Networking™ is the networking group that stands out for me – it’s the perfect mix of business networking at different time slots, the chance to meet a really wide range of new and established businesses, excellent member training opportunities, no lock outs, no forced referrals, and a hefty dose of humour.

A friendly networking group with a great structure to facilitate people getting to know and trust each other.

Professional environment and extremely friendly. We have plenty of recommendations and customers from Connect Networking™ hence the reason to go further with this group. Various locations to choose from and on top of this there’s always a warm welcome from Paul.

This is definitely one of the best networking groups around. It’s partly the very amusing and good-natured leadership by Paul and partly the really good mix of people who attend. There’s a genuine desire to help each other with business needs of all sorts and it’s stimulating company.

I have really enjoyed the meetings in Bedford. Becoming a member after the second meeting was very easy and the right thing to do for the company. The locations and the timings are good (as well as a breakfast that is made for you!)

The Connect meetings I find to be structured, timed well and great for getting to know the wider business community – not just the ‘under 5 employees’ or ‘just creatives’. A great balance of experience and company sizes attend.

I have always felt welcome- from the first meeting ! I have even been brave enough to do a talk about Maps and Gaps! I am looking forward to going up to Northampton and across to Milton Keynes!!
Highly recommend if you are starting out in the area!!
