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 £55 and then £50 per month, which includes a full English breakfast with a selection of beverages.

  • Dr. Ash Parmar - Dentist

    "I joined Epping Forest Business Group (EFBG) in 2011 when I started our new dental practice called Smile Design By Ash. I was clear that to grow the business, it would be important to network with local people and businesses. I found the EFBG group had a relaxed approach, but with genuine desire to promote business referrals amongst group members. The other thing I really appreciate, is the expertise in the many sectors, so that it is easy to get good advice from trusted colleagues within the group..."

    "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."
