'Network on the Move' - The Return Journey with Virgin Trains

Marking the latest benefit for all Business Network members.

To coincide with the introduction of the new 20% discount on Virgin Advanced Rail Fares for Business Network Members, on Thursday 27th August 2015 members of The Business Network London Central group had the opportunity to travel to Manchester, in a private first class carriage with Virgin Trains, to meet members of the long established Business Network Manchester.

The event also marked the 'return journey' of one made in 2013 when a Manchester group travelled to the newly established London network. Helen Bennett, Owner and Director of The Business Network said, "the first trip was such a success, and now the London group has grown to over 100 members, it seemed a great opportunity to run the return journey".

"The idea of 'Networking on the Move' has always appealed to me", said Helen, "and we are in a unique position where we can broker introductions between the two business communities".

As well as the private first class carriage on Virgin Trains, executive transfers were provided in Manchester by Professional Chauffeur Services (PCS), who took the London group on to the Networking Event at The Lowry Hotel.

What members and guests say

"Thanks for the opportunity yesterday – it improved my day and here’s why:I’d had a stinker of a morning compounded by some unwelcome news on email as I arrived for the lunch, and was in a ‘why do I bother’ frame of mind. So it was an opportunity to take time out, chat with good people and have a nice lunch.But better than that, I sat next to Heather Hobden of IBS who, during the course of lunch gave me a fantastic idea and offer of help that may possibly open up a completely new market for me. As with all these things, we’ll try and nothing may come of it, but then again it might. And to know that there are people in the Network rooting for you when you need it is invaluable. I had two other table members presenting offers to me as well.By 2pm, my morning was in clear context and I left with my MOJO well and truly back and up for the fight.It’s much easier to ride the knocks when you have great people on your side like those in The Business Network."

"This is a brilliant organisation and the simple but effective in its delivery. There is a feeling of fun during the meetings but it is also backed up with serious business ethics. The contacts I have made since being a member are tremendous. The morning seminars are informative and delivered by professionals. I would recommend any business owner thinking of joining to join without hesitation and before their slot is taken"
