Open networking from 7.30am 

Please arrive at 7.30am for introductions and open networking with our members. The formal, sit-down meeting then begins at 8.00am and finishes around 9.30am.

BUSINESS BY ASSOCIATION

We all know that a good referral is far easier to close than a cold lead – and it’s also far more likely to lead to a strong and lasting working relationship with that customer. That’s because the loyalty and trust you’ve built up with a client who is willing to recommend your services can be transferred ‘by association’ to somebody who values and respects their opinion.

This principle of ‘Business By Association’ lies at the heart of Business BASE and helps shape the way we operate. We spend time getting to know our fellow members and understanding the professional goals they have set themselves. By building these connections based on trust, we can be sure that referrals we make for their services will provide powerful new opportunities for them to win new clients, increase profit and grow their businesses.

Business BASE meets fortnightly at The Rayleigh Club. Members gather at 7.30am for some open networking over coffee before sitting down for a structured meeting from 8.00am.
Our “exclusivity rule” means we only accept one member per business category. To find out whether your seat is free, please contact our Leadership Team today.
