Sounds interesting?



The Partnership Groups are suitable for individuals from companies of all sizes – owners of large companies are inspired by the ideas and innovations being adopted by owners of small companies and vice versa.

What is important, is a common desire to learn and help one another to have a better business. We learn better together and friendships are formed along the way.

Below is a selection of current members.

Each Group is restricted to 14 non-competing members. Once the group is full, no further members are permitted to trial. If you join, no other company that you compete with can become a member of your group.
