TEN years of the Business Forum!
On Thursday 15th June 2017 the Business Forum celebrated TEN years by holding a Party at the Riverside Marquee, Bray. We had an excellent evening, with fantastic company, great location, good food and amazing weather! We took trips on a river launch on the Thames, played lawn games and listened to an outstanding young jazz band. What a great evening!
“The Business Forum is an excellent way to start any business day. Great networks are about great people coming together in an inspiring and fun environment where everyone feels welcomed into a thought provoking and informative group. The Business Forum ticks all the boxes as one of the best networks in the Thames Valley in my experience.” www.wilson-partners.co.uk

“Over the years, MAXX has benefited from the sound business knowledge and advice of some seriously sound business minds and, looking back, I know many of the key decisions that we have taken to grow the business have come either directly, or indirectly from people I have met through this excellent networking group.
Many of the members I now consider mentors and friends and I’m looking forward to another 10 years of learning and laughing!”
Cathy Jenkins, MAXX Design Ltd
