About Us

The Business Growth Network is putting the GREAT Back into Britain…

INTRODUCING YOU TO THE BUSINESS GROWTH NETWORK (BGN)

Before social media, before the internet – there was networking. Networking isn’t just any old marketing tool; it is the marketing tool. For years businesses have been gathering in clubs, golf courses, and over lunches to do business. And it’s been that way for years! Networking is so successful that it is loved by all entrepreneurs and will stay the test of time.

 

BGN helps businesses connect to more influential audiences by providing a hybrid of events both online and Face to Face. We help bring companies together to help them connect and grow through providing a catalyst of events. Our membership offers excellent value for money and visitors can attend non-members-only events from £10 per event

We work hard to help our members connect to existing new contacts by providing events to help them connect and grow their business. From business lunches to conferences and awards, we have something for everyone.

The Business Growth Network (BGN) allows businesses of all sizes to connect and grow through its network. These are challenging times, and not all businesses are getting the help and support they need through government funding schemes. The founder of The Business Growth Network, Mark Linton, is committed to helping all businesses reach out and connect. This is why he has introduced the ‘GetBritainMoving’ campaign to help businesses connect and grow. The SME’s and Startups are the backbones of the country, and the ‘S’ of the SME is being left out in the cold when it comes to supporting from the government’s bailout scheme.

Our campaign, Get Britain Moving is helping put the GREAT back into BRITAIN. Small businesses and Startups are the backbones of this great nation, and although politicians cannot work in a joined-up fashion, over Covid-19 businesses are demonstrating they can.

The Business Growth Network has run over 200 events in the last 12 months and since March 2020 has run over 80 online meetings and sold over 1500 tickets and helped generate business through its 121 panels that take place after the meeting. Online sessions now form a part of everything we do and will be of our future events where we will be hosting a hybrid of online and live events when there is a vaccine found for Covid-19.

Our mission is to help create, nurture, and grow business growth across the UK. Plans will see the return of live events with our conference and exhibition and Awards to celebrate and recognize those members and businesses who have succeeded through these difficult times.
