Testimonials from our members – the ones who make The Business Network what it is

You have always run the most professional network of all the ones I have ever been to.

This Network is as good as it gets. Hosted by the wonderful Helen Bennett it offers all kinds of businesses excellent network opportunities as well as support from Helen. The network lunches are always a positive experience and for me personally they have provided me with many new clients - and indeed friends.

Over the years I have been to many types of business networks including sector targeted events, however I now choose to only go to one - The Business Network Manchester. This is a coherent, friendly and excellent way to network and offers long lasting relationships. I find its an efficient use of my time and I always look forward to monthly event. Helen is always a great inspiration and ready to offer a helping hand and introductions. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the network.

I use business networking extensively to build new business and so I come across all types of Networking Companies. To say that Helen Bennett's Business Network stands head and shoulders above the rest is only telling it how it is. The format is excellent and relaxing which get the best out of everyone and the added bonus is Helen's personality and attention to detail. I can heartily recommend Business Network.

Thank you for the wonderful May online event that I attended. This was a very well run, engaging, and supportive event and made me proud to be part of The Business Network. Congratulations Helen to you and the team!

Thank you for allowing me to come to the event today. I will be joining the network. I was so impressed by your personal approach and your professionalism in running the event and your husband did a great job as well.

I have been a Business Network Member for many years, probably over 10 years now. When I first joined the Network it was unique. It was a relaxed and yet structured environment in which to meet like minded business people who were keen to build long standing relationships rather than score a quick sale. A huge contribution to the success of the network is owner Helen Bennett, and her handpicked franchisees who run the satellite events in other towns and cities. Helen never forgets a face, a name, a connection, and she is constantly on the lookout not only for referrals to the members but also new members to keep network fresh and relevant. I have obtained significant referrals from Network members, and have purchased services from members with great success. Even if there is not a member in your branch that can help, Helen will know someone who can. Quite simply, the original and best! We are delighted to be part of this wonderful network!

I have been attending The Business Network meetings in Manchester for 10+ years and its the monthly meeting I always look forward too. The Host Helen is always very welcoming and ensures that the people in the room are senior and relevant. If I could only attend one event, this would be the one I would pick.

It is personal touches like this which set the Network aside from other business networks and which make it a constant pleasure to attend.

After nearly 30 years in business, this is The Best Business Network we have ever been to! The success of this network is down to the enthusiasm and genuine love of the members from Helen and Russel Bennett who are the founders and organisers and this culture runs throughout the network with a genuine desire to help one another without any pressure. Well organised, friendly, welcoming and now a mature network with some fabulous businesses and people who wants to help. Long may this network continue.........

Nothing but positives for Helen & Russell since we became involved with The Business Network Manchester 2 years ago. Extremely professional and skilled and making useful connections. I look forward very much to the return to their face-to-face networking events sometime soon.

Thank you very much for a really enjoyable afternoon yesterday. I appreciate how much of your time you gave to helping me feel welcome and to get most from the event. I have now made a number of great contacts and it is thanks to you.

Great friendly atmosphere with a servant leadership culture. I attended my first meeting in November and already had 4 follow up sessions in the following week. Well worth joining.

Yesterday was a super session – was it a record turnout? It was very good and the Breakout Room was super and very well controlled by our room host with whom I was very impressed. I just thought I would let you know over the last few months I have been doing business as a result of attending your Network meetings, all over the Country! The fact that you are including your London and Exeter group with the Manchester one has enabled me to link with people in Totnes and Kingsbridge, for example and I have done business as a result, so I just thought I would tell you that and say keep up the good work! Thanks very much, Ian

Helen and Russell Bennett are fantastic! The Business Network Manchester is a brilliant group of like-minded business people who come together each month to network, offer referrals and to generally help each other. I have been a member of over 20 years and it has very much helped me to grow my business as a result! If you are based in Manchester, you should pay a visit.
