BBN Lancaster Lakes appear in the Lancaster Guardian

Following a recent press release issued to local papers, members of the BBN Lancaster Lakes group appeared on the business page of the Lancaster Guardian today.

The press release highlighted the value of being a member of the Lancaster Lakes BBN group that meets every Friday morning for breakfast to share business referrals and recommendations.

BRX Lancaster Lakes Members

Since the Lancaster and Lakes group started up, hundreds of business referrals have been passed between members. In fact estimates suggest that the business generated has been worth well over £100,000 to the local economy.

Current members represent a good mix of skills: for example, there’s a marketing specialist and graphic designer, and there are companies selling office furniture, lighting equipment and farm fresh food, all of them based in North Lancs/South Lakes.

Group chairman and Warton photographer Marcus Pomfret said, “We encourage members from all types of businesses. The network extends right across the UK, so we attract business into the area from all over the country.”

There is one important rule, which is that only one profession can be represented at each group. This ensures that each member gets the maximum benefit.

Another member, marketing expert Julian Healey of Springtide Marketing, added: “The main point is that while it’s a nice relaxed atmosphere, we all know why we’re here – which is to help each other grow our businesses by giving good quality leads. There’s also the support side – the weekly breakfasts give us the chance to exchange ideas and advice. And we can all be back at our desks by 10.00am!”

Are you interested in developing your business through networking and referrals?

The BBN Lancaster Lakes group is currently looking for new members in several sectors. Contact Julian Healey, membership manager for more information on 07876 191334, or see our current requested business sectors.
