Welcome to Natural Business Network

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 Face to Face NBN Meetings, we offer two regular ONLINE meetings every Thursday. One at 7:30 am, and then another at 10 am.

Our regular Face to Face meetings are on – The First Tuesday of the month, 10 am till 12 Noon, The Third Wednesday of the month 7.30am – 9am, and the Last Friday of the month

We offer many other Meetings and Events beneficial to our members and visitors over the year, in a variety of formats, at a variety of times and in a variety of venues – do check out our NBN Meetings and Events page for all our meetings.

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 have collaborated with Hampshire Chamber of Commerce and NatWest and the Andover Ladies Who Latte. We enjoy activity with other networking groups and organisations – this is wonderful, collaborative and mutually beneficial to all and we enjoy it!

The also love to interact with many others such as the ever helpful Andover BID. We have NBN Members who work in the Andover Town Centre and many of us interact daily with the Andover BID shopkeepers and businesses. It is important to us that Andover Town Centre, and businesses in Test Valley and beyond thrive.

NBN is well supported by Test Valley Borough Council and we love to attend the Test Valley Business Awards and other positive events.
