Growing and nurturing Lancashire businesses
The Business Network Central & East Lancashire is a thriving group of committed members that was launched in 2009. It is now firmly established as one of the most proactive business-to-business membership organisations boasting over 100 members which are made up of both business owners and senior decision makers.

Growing and nurturing Lancashire businesses is integral to the Business Network ethos; and providing unrivalled support and additional opportunities for members is key to give everyone maximum return on their investment.

Membership
We come together each month at a first-class venue.  After an optional morning seminar, we enjoy a period of free range networking, followed by a two course lunch where we take the opportunity to promote our business on hosted tables and enjoy insights from our speaker.

An exclusive interactive portal allows for member news to be shared, event details to be uploaded and access is given to member contact details and biographies to source potential collaborations and referrals.

Each member can also take advantage of the opportunity to host a seminar or a speaking opportunity which further allows you to promote your business to a captive audience.

Whilst not offering ‘exclusivity’ to any sector, we keep industry sectors to around 5% of the membership total to achieve balance and promote those all-important collaborations.

Representing a wide-ranging variety of industry sectors, the membership is full of like-minded individuals intent on building business connections to generate leads and opportunities.  A well-balanced mix of businesses to ensure a positive approach to referrals and business success.

A select group of passionate, dedicated and proactive members who ensure that the group’s reputation for facilitating business and generating significant revenue and referrals between each other is second to none.  Combine this with the groups positive ethos and commitment to wanting to help and support businesses of all sizes nurture relationships and strategic partnerships with its introductions and you have the recipe for success.

What one top tip would you give to a business owner embarking on a growth plan?
JDI – Just do it! Contact a Boost Client Relationship Manager and see what programmes are available to help and support your business growth plan. Having personally benefited on two occasions over the last few years, I would highly recommend Boost and its many approaches.

Why is Lancashire a great place to grow a business?
Business deals are not just ‘transactions’ in Lancashire – they are about building and supporting relationships with a personable approach and I for one am all for that!

Why are you backing Boost Business Lancashire?
I firmly believe in its values, its integrity and its proposition and I very much look forward to playing my part and to see businesses of all sizes in the county go on to even greater success.
