This afternoon I took part in the BforB Open Day, designed to give Manchester business men and women a taster of what BforB networking is all about. I am fortunate to be a member of the BforB Ladies Group and have been a member since the group launched in August. We meet every other Tuesday 10:30 until 12 noon at The Ainscow Hotel, Salford.
What is BforB networking?
BforB networking helps you expand your support network, raises your business profile and increases your sales by making strong relationships with like-minded business professionals. It's a relaxed, yet structured meeting designed to encourage quality referrals. Members are encouraged to have one-to-one meetings outside of the group to develop a better understanding of member businesses and the types of referrals they're looking for. At the Ainscow Ladies, we are actively referring business to each other and a number of people have benefited already from new business generated from a BforB referral.
You can read a little more about my experience with BforB on the BforB website here. If you're looking for a Manchester networking group, it's certainly worth popping along to one of our meetings as a guest to see what it's all about.
There are three BforB groups in Manchester:
- BforB Ladies Manchester Ainscow Hotel: Meet every other Tuesday, 10:30
- Manchester The Ainscow Hotel: Meet every other Wednesday, 07:30
- Holiday Inn Manchester West: Meet every other Thursday, 06:45
It was a great turnout at the Open Day today and we hope to welcome new faces to the groups over the coming weeks.
