If you are in business you will know that making contacts is of vital importance, and a great way of doing this is to join a business networking group.  Willow Wood’s Business Connexions is the ideal way to link up with local contacts in many different sectors.

Members can enjoy a breakfast bap at the monthly meeting with the opportunity to showcase their products and services.  As well as forging those vital business links, there will be the opportunity to hear informative presentations on subjects as diverse as cyber-crime, health & safety, marketing, HMRC compliance and more.

The meetings, which start at 7.45am on the last Wednesday of every month, are only part of the many benefits of being involved with such a well-known local charity.  Willow Wood can help companies meet their corporate social responsibilities easily and ethically, as there are many different ways for staff to volunteer and work as part of a team.

Members are given priority sponsorship opportunities, and advertising at one of Willow Wood well-attended events is an easy way to reach your community.  Willow Wood has a very active social media presence with a proven record of reaching up to a quarter of a million people with just one event.  Imagine the benefits of your company logo and a link to your website being seen by so many.

But it’s not just about these, and the other real benefits to your business.  As Elaine McConnell, corporate fundraiser said: “Every penny of the Business Connexions joining fee of just £30 each month comes directly to Willow Wood, and is a real, sustainable way of helping us continue our care.  This financial year it will take £2.5 million to maintain our services and we need to raise 79% of this from within our community.  By joining you are really helping our patients and their loved ones receive the support they need.”

Willow Wood’s next Business Connexions meeting is on Wednesday 30 January, so why not book your place.  The first meeting is free and you will be under no obligation to continue.  Please contact Elaine on 0161 330 7788 or .
