We provide a welcoming and supportive environment in which to develop business relationships. You will find our meetings structured, but also informal and fun. Our approach to business networking has evolved over time into something we know people are comfortable with.
There is no full-on pressure to provide referrals every week – we believe that one good referral is worth a hundred poor ones, and that’s what we all prefer – good sound business opportunities.
Our independence means that we can set our own targets and objectives. Along with our weekly breakfast meetings, we also arrange local training, seminars, guest speakers, charitable and social events.
It is our intention that the club provides more than a forum for referrals. Members can, if they wish, benefit widely from the resourses available to us. We believe this distinguishes us from other similar organisations.
Run by the members, for the members.
We are very proud to have our own charter which lays out simply and clearly how the club is operated and what is expected of its members.
Tell us in 60 seconds.
For some, standing up in front of others can be a little intimidating. We endevour to keep the sixty seconds relaxed so that members feel as comfortable as possible. If however public speaking is a problem we provide training and support to overcome this. The 60 second round allows you to present yourself to a group of people who want to know
what you do, how you do it, what business you want to attract and a whole lot more. It also helps you understand your own business too. It’s really not that bad!
However, we do network to generate business, and part of that involves talking about our products and services. Along with the 60 second slots we also organise regular one-to-one meetings where you can go into greater detail about your business with individual members. Everyone gets a chance to present a more in depth picture of their business to the whole club on a rota basis. Over time this increases understanding and trust, allowing us to recognise and exploit new business opportunities. This can result in referrals and generates business opportunities for all the members of the group – it is like having an extended team selling your products and services in the market place!
Referrals and recommendations tend to be the most effective and the least expensive method of developing business – yet many companies do not have a strategy in place to maximise their potential from business networking events. We help you to develop this strategy with a suite of business networking resources tips and techniques.
Is the Bath Business Club right for you?
The only way to find out for sure is to come along and see for yourself. We can quote you statistics, but ultimately it comes down to the mix of individuals and what we can mutually acheive together.
