Natural Business Network (NBN) is a friendly and relaxed business networking group where you have the chance to meet other local and beyond business owners and community members and tell them about your business and interests, with the aim of building authentic relationships, where we all have a good understanding of each others needs, and therefore get things done!
NBN forges mutually useful, strong, long-lasting connections for Business, Community and Individuals. We build authentic relationships where we nurture a genuine understanding of each others needs, allowing us to think cohesively and get things done.
In addition to our NEW Face to Face NBN Meetings, we offer two ONLINE meetings every Thursday. One at 7:30 am, and then another at 10 am.
Other Meetings and Events beneficial to our members are added over the coming year, in a variety of formats, at a variety of times in a variety of venues.
And special Christmas Meeting is arranged for 11.30 am on the 10th December 2022 at Esseborne Manor.
Joint Networking and collaboration with other groups is constantly explored and included wherever they are beneficial to our members and others. For example, we have enjoyed a meeting where our local BNI were co hosting with us, we worked with Hampshire Chamber of Commerce and NatWest when they initiated Andover Business Week and aim to extend this kind of activity with other networking groups and organisations – this is wonderful, collaborative networking!
The Andover BID have been very friendly and helpful. We have NBN Members who work in the Andover Town Centre and many of us interact daily with the Andover BID shopkeepers and businesses. So it is important to us that Andover Town Centre, and also that Test Valley and beyond thrives.
NBN is well supported by Test Valley Borough Council and we love to attend the Test Valley Business Awards and other positive events.
Our format is very relaxed, and all types of businesses, organisations including sole traders, and individuals are welcome as well as are local members of Charities, Education, Health, Local Authorities, Construction and Business Park, Volunteer and Employment Representatives. We also aim to have regular presentations from a mixture of members and outside speakers on a variety of subjects.
If you are Planning or Growing a Business. Employed, Self Employed or Job Seeking, Retired or Redundant. Or simply someone in the Community who has an interest in supporting people in business and also their community. Everyone has something to offer. Skills and Expertise to share, therefore everyone is welcome.
We deeply value our current NBN Members, are always looking for new people, visitors and speakers for us to connect with. So if you would like to come along to one of our meetings, or apply for NBN membership and inclusion on our website, or to simply go onto our email invitation list then please do get in touch. email below.
