Testimonials about Essex Business Forum from past and present members
I Joined Essex Business Forum a few months after I started by business and have been a member ever since. In the past six years I have not only obtained quality business leads that have led to me carrying out work for a variety of clients but have also fostered an excellent network of business contacts who I am happy to recommend and do so on a regular basis.
In addition I have a great support network in that the other members are happy to give me advice and guidance when needed and I hope I provide that to them as well.
I cannot think of any downside of being member of this brilliant organisation –except for getting up early every Thursday morning!
Membership and involvement with EBF is a key part of my business. I have built up many valuable relationships with like-minded companies in the area.
Eachy week there is a lively buzz and a pleasant atmosphere and I’m convinced that more business is passed in that environment than in the overly-regimented approaches I have seen elsewhere in the past.
When I joined EBF I had recently gone into business by myself, as a freelancer. With just a few clients under my belt, I hoped membership would help me to grow, and to become established. It has certainly done that. I’m now collaborating regularly with fellow members on new business, and have a regular flow of high quality referrals. This is my No.1 focus for business growth.
There are many reasons why being a member of EBF has helped my business. Firstly of course are the recommended referrals. Our hit rate is really high on EBF business , way up in the 90%.
Secondly I have access to experts in their fields ,all of whom are happy to offer advice on issues that arise during business life and thirdly it helps you to build confidence.
Standing up and speaking in front of people doesn’t come naturally to all . Doing this on a regular basis really helped me to build confidence not only here but in my normal business dealings.
I fully recommend you come along and give EBF a try.
I was introduced to Essex Business Forum by an existing member, and honestly at the time I did not know, nor understand what to expect. 2 years later, I can say EBF is beyond business referrals.
For me, it is about working closely with positive and inspirational external colleagues; and constantly educating each other.
I truly believe EBF has played a huge part in my professional development; and in my presence in the community.Jason Nortey
