My name is Karen Tems and I’m the owner and host of The Business Network Central & East Lancashire.
I believe that for business networking to be truly effective, it should be considered an essential part of the working day and that is why we do things a little bit differently here:
Owners & Decision Makers
We welcome business owners and senior decision makers – people who commit their valuable time to the group because they recognise the value it brings to their business.
Helping & Supporting Each Other
Running your own business or being a senior decision maker can be a lonely place. Our primary focus is to ensure that everyone feels included and comfortable. Creating the breathing space to discuss business issues, share insights, solve challenges and develop new opportunities together.
Your Success is My Success
My passion is understanding what your business offers, what you want to achieve through your membership and then help you make it happen by connecting your business with others in the group who can help. Through regular contact we work together to help you achieve your goals.
We meet once a month for a delicious lunch in a wonderful Lancashire venue.
Each table of members and guests is specially curated and warmly hosted by an experienced member to encourage great conversation and potential collaboration.
Think of it as a business lunch and with far greater reach.
Each event includes an optional morning seminar for lunch time attendees. These are delivered by specialists in a range of topics from business strategy, growth, succession planning, marketing and personal development such as developing resilience and mental health in the workplace.
Since our launch in 2009 we’re so proud of what our group has achieved. The friendships and business relationships made, as well as the business revenue created.
We would love to introduce you to our vibrant, exciting community so you can see for yourself why The Business Network Central & East Lancashire is networking that works.
Please feel free to get in touch to find out more and join us as a guest at our next event.
