I have met likeminded individuals in very different businesses that have helped me with my first year as a new business owner. I am about to have a new accountant thanks to the group. I have done business with a few members and have got soooo much out of the talks. The range of subjects is vast and I have picked up some valuable tips and tricks along the way. The accountancy and Lawyer sessions have made me change the way I do some of my business and I have found inspiration in some of the other topics. It is nice to spend some time away from the day to day head in the weeds stuff and actually think about what you are doing and why. The group is friendly, respectful and fun. I look forward to the Friday meetings. It is not too formal but controlled enough that everyone has their time to speak. It is nice to reflect on successes that you have had and don’t usually celebrate. All in all just a good group of peeps and you get out what you put in.
Simon – IT Logics – Sensible and Safe IT Solutions
There is something very special about the Greenhithe business group. I work hard now to make sure I attend. I’ve found that I no longer go for ‘what I can get’ but love the fellowship and hearing about other’s lives. And since beginning this I’ve actually worked with at least six of the people there.
Paul Richards –Club Physical - Chief Executive Officer
I meet some great people whose services I’ve used and been able to recommend - plus I always enjoy the upbeat and fun spirit of the meeting.
Jane Thomas John – Now Your Talking – Public Speaking & Voice Coach
I enjoy sharing business knowledge, ideas and the thought-provoking discussions that come about at meetings. A non-pressurised networking group where local businesses can discuss current happenings in the market along with good banter and a friendly team.
Lindsey Carroll – Outbox Ltd – Online Marketing VA
I love the sense of ‘team’ that comes with networking with like-minded individuals. I have also implemented some ideas that have come from other GBG members – things I would not have thought of myself that have proved valuable for the success of my business. The members are like a virtual ‘board’ of consultants who bring a unique perspective to an issue or idea that is raised. I come away with something valuable from each session at the Greenhithe Business Group. It is non-confrontation and very inclusive.
Rosemary Mahoney - Recreationz Bathroom Renovators
I have been a member of the Greenhithe Business Group since it started. I have found being a member quite rewarding for two reasons: Firstly, I have got new business out of being a member which is great, but secondly and more importantly, I have got good hints and tips and business advice from people in lots of different fields. The meetings are fun and light hearted and I always come away with something that I can use or work on in my own business.
Craig Buscomb - Elevate Chiropractic - Chiropractor
I especially enjoy that each group member has a different profession, and a different outlook on life. That means that presentations and Q&A are informative, in a business sense, and downright interesting!
