The Tunbridge Wells Business Network: networking for Kent and Sussex

Running your own business is never easy! Everything takes longer than you thought and invariably costs more then you imagined. To top it all, there is the whole issue of finding new customers and building a stronger business. Big challenges – and they’re all yours. The good news is you’re not alone. There are lots of networking groups to join. So what are you looking for?

Like us, you appreciate the limited value of quick fixes – rooms full of people selling their solution through overly-rigid meeting procedures and large annual membership fees. You, on the other hand, are seeking quality peer relationships and see value in collaborating with a well-established group of local business owners. Good news, you’ve just described the Tunbridge Wells Business Network.

Naturally, many of our TWBN members are Tunbridge Wells based, others have come from Crowborough, Sevenoaks, Tonbridge, Heathfield, Uckfield, Mayfield, Edenbridge, Lewes, Wadhurst, East Grinstead – all over Kent and Sussex.

Our combined knowledge and client base are great assets. We believe that business networking is first and foremost about building relationships with other like-minded owners – not about being under pressure to produce a list of names and numbers to hand over as referrals. Understanding each other and the business we run is fundamental to developing good referrals.

“The friendliness of the group was key – and the professional advice and opinions of those around the table has played a central role in my own business management and development.”

We meet every two weeks and cost of membership is £35 per month, which covers the cost of the venue, an excellent breakfast prepared by Purple Pumpkin Catering – and of course, the opportunity to present your business to an empathetic audience.

That’s it.

Our members don’t compete for opportunities and, like many networking clubs, we can only allow one practitioner of any given business category. Click here to see if there may be an opportunity for your business within TWBN.

If being part of such a group of mutually helpful business people sounds like something worth getting out of bed for, then we should be talking…
