Ferndown Business Network member Just ask Juli is a fantastic idea and is delivered with a high level of professionalism and has a service focused ethos. Juli has been working with me on a weekly basis for a few months and I am so pleased to have come across her when I did. Recently, I was required to step back from my business unexpectedly due to illness and Juli has been able to keep on top of the administrative tasks and keep the impact on my business to a minimum. Juli stepped in and with minimal training and direction she has understood exactly how she is best able to support my business. As I am now fully recovered we are exploring other skill sets that Juli has that I can also benefit from namely, marketing, training, client retention and compliance. Juli’s contribution to me and by business has truly improved my wellbeing, strengthen my business and has allowed my business to stretch to the next level which was not possible without her support.
I have been involved with FBN for a few years now, and have not only learned a lot about a diverse range of businesses, I have also got some good referrals from all concerned.
A very friendly group to mix with for business and socially. Great cooked breakfast too!!
I joined FBN when I moved to the area three years ago. Apart from getting business it’s great to be able to give other people business too.
Every third week we do ‘networking with a difference’ which is always different and great fun. Building towers out of spaghetti and marshmallows was my favourite 😀 I really look forward to getting up early on a Friday.
FBN has been the friendliest and most effective networking I have done. It’s given me the opportunity to meet some great professional people who have helped guide me and introduce me to more great people. This was vital for me being new to the area as I needed to know who I could trust and rely on when needed.
We meet on a weekly basis which I believe is the secret to its success it’s fantastic value for money, very relaxed and the really nice part is that you don’t have to listen to multiples of the same profession like you do in most networks. I would thoroughly recommend anyone paying us a visit.
I joined FBN in September 2019 as I had just started up my business. I hope to learn about the other services available within the group and get my business promoted from within.
I’ve found the group to be welcoming, light hearted but professional and supportive.
Over the past 20 years, I’ve continually networked as it’s been the life blood of success in my business career.
There are a lot of networking opportunities in the area (I ran 6 venues for over 4 years) so it’s important that you choose the ones that are right for you. FBN attracted me for 3 main reasons.
1. It’s relaxed, it’s good fun, it’s very friendly but still professional.
2. Unbelievable value for money
3. Genuine referrals from within the group. It’s the reason that there’s a waiting list for new members.
