"When I first started my business last year I quickly appreciated how important networking was and attended quite a variety of groups. What I noted and liked immediately about BuzzConnect, was the broad variety of businesses attending and the friendliness of everyone. It was a different, very effective, open style of networking environment within which I found it much easier to engage with other business people and develop supportive and productive relationships. When the opportunity came to join as an Ambassador I had no hesitation."
Alister Ross, Marketing Strategy Consultant – Opportunity Marketing.
“West Berkshire Council is working in partnership with BuzzConnect because we believe that they are offering excellent support to businesses in the area through the Ambassador network and the networking and other events that are running. The Ambassadors are all local business people themselves. West Berkshire Council has worked with some of the Ambassadors to provide free workshops in areas such as employment law and communications.
New and small businesses will benefit from the kind of support that BuzzConnect can offer in West Berkshire and we are proud to be involved”
Janet Duffield, Lead for Economic Growth, West Berkshire Council
“I came across the BuzzConnect Networking group fairly early on in starting my business. What struck me initially at that first meeting was the unconditional acceptance and welcome of the other attendees in the room, providing the opportunity for business owners to talk about their business, share ideas, and support each other. I have seen many of these discussions continue beyond the event and turn into business opportunities. It’s this local focus, the breadth and variety of the businesses who attend, the depth of the relationships and the opportunity to support and develop the local industries that inspired me to become an ambassador.”
Katie Aldridge – HR Dept
“We joined BuzzConnect as ambassadors over a year ago when we launched Metro Bank in Newbury and are proud to host a networking event for BuzzConnect in store monthly. Since then BuzzConnect has been invaluable in putting us in touch with local businesses in the community, making connections and providing opportunities to directly engage and interact with large audiences. We’ve certainly experienced the benefits of BuzzConnect first hand and are glad to be a part of it!”
