Testimonials about Essex Business Forum from past and present members
As well as providing an important and consistent source of new business, the group is a valuable resource of support and advice which has been vital to the development of our firm.
The trust and respect that builds between members has a direct influence on business growth.
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
- I work alone and only see clients who have problems that they want resolving.
Every week at EBF I have the opportunity to meet 30 people all of different trades and professions and this gives me a broad outlook on what is happening outside of my consulting room.
To help build and cement relationships and to learn about members interests outside of their working environment, social events are held throughout the year culminating in the grand Christmas dinner.
All members act as salesmen for each other and apart from the enthusiasm and good fellowship generated at the meetings I receive good quality referrals, all of which enhance my business.Brian Painter
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.
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!
