NETWORKING: A great way to increase your business

Established in 2008, Epping Forest Business Group is a fun, friendly & effective way of gaining quality new business!

Our Members develop trust and understanding of each other’s businesses. By building great relationships, we have found that a lot of business is genuinely passed to each other on a weekly basis.

EFBG has a strict policy that only one member from each particular trade or profession can join to ensure the Group works together as a team and there is no internal competition. EFBG Meetings are structured to ensure that the potential for referrals is maximised.

In addition to this each member is invited, in rotation, to speak for 10 minutes and describe their business and how they feel they could get more business from the group.

There is a one off joining fee of £50 and then £55 per month, which includes a full English breakfast with a selection of beverages.

    I have been a member of the group since 2014. This was my first venture into networking, and I’m pleased to say it’s been a very rewarding experience. Not only in terms of the additional business opportunities it has generated for JJNET, but also in terms of the personal development that occurs naturally when you meet with a close group of like-minded professionals on a weekly basis. I recommend anyone that serious of developing their business to consider networking- it’s not an “instant fix” in terms of new business, but something that will build strong relationships & bear fruit in good time.

    "I joined the group in 2015 when I first launched myself out of the “Corporate Employed” world. The group has been supportive in terms of good business practice, raising my profile with integrity & being introduced to quality referrals. I chaired the group in 2017 along with Fiona Sagoo and thoroughly enjoyed developing the group. EFBG is friendly, helpful and helped grow my business from standing still."

    "I started attending the EFBG about 5 years ago. I am a web designer and of course a big fan of online promotion, however during my comparitively short time with the group I can hand on heart say the the group has been directly responsible a substantial portion of the contracts we have aquired during our time here."
