Why I Joined BRG

Here’s a few messages from some of our current members with their thoughts on why they joined our fun, friendly and successful BRG group.


Allan Love – Website Energizers

We like to join networking groups where the members are committed to attending the meetings regularly and actively build relationships with each other.

BRG is a professional and friendly group. Everyone is made to feel welcome and gets involved. We have made some great connections, even better friends and had fun at the same time.

We like that BRG members donate a percentage of the profits they received from the group to various charities each year. It is important to us that we give back!

So, we joined, and are glad we joined, because as well as the above points, we all proactively and effectively seek opportunities for each other to do business within the room and within all our extended networks.

Amanda Gowing – Sight Security

After starting a new business, I visited a number of network and referral meetings with a view to join. I found the meeting on Eventbrite, booked my place and attended my first meeting. On arrival I was met with a warm welcome from Andrea who was the visitor host. I was then taken and introduced to members who I chatted to and who made me feel really welcome. The meeting progressed, learning about the incredible number of referrals and business that’s passed on a weekly basis. Also, the charities that benefit from each member’s donations. There was a 60 second opportunity to tell everyone about my business and what referrals I would like. I knew at this first meeting that I wanted to join this amazing, friendly group of people, all focused on helping each other gain business. I put my application in the very next day and was accepted into the group. Having attended all of the meetings, I have been given excellent referrals and have given the same back to other members, this is what it is all about, helping each other to grow their businesses. It’s great to feel a part of something so amazing, a group passing over 700k of business in a year

Mark Smith – Surface Clean

I joined BRG almost two years ago after talking to someone who was already a member. I had started up my patio, gutter and carpet cleaning business a short while before and have found BRG a really good way of building up my client base. It has been great getting to know people in various trades. It has helped me to understand their business thus enabling me to recommend their services to my customers with confidence. I have found the group really friendly and supportive and have found the mix of experiences in the self-employment sector invaluable in helping me grow my own business.

Aileen Sherer – FAT Panda

We were looking to find a friendly, approachable networking group of local small companies, like ourselves, who we could meet with on a regular basis, and provide referrals within the group and their contacts. We had looked at similar groups but found them to be a bit to ‘formal’ and somewhat too ‘pressurised’ for us.

The BRG members always make you feel welcome and take a real interest in helping you build your business, both from within the group and externally. We enjoy meeting with everyone, finding out about the various business needs, and as a group, always looking for opportunities to refer one and other’s services.

During Lockdown, we have been able to meet via Zoom, which has been great for keeping in touch with each other, offering support, and finding out if there are alternate ways we can help each other…. until some kind of normality returns for our businesses.  It’s a great group to be a member of, and the support we have received over the past year has been invaluable
