IntroBiz – A Network Overview

-

Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

I always love finding out about new networks to bring you new inspiration for where you can spread your wings and grow your valued networks.  And today’s network is no exception.

I had the pleasure of speaking with the lovely Tracey Smolinski, the Connections Queen recently about her network, IntroBiz, which has its origins in Wales. I’m delighted to bring you the lowdown as there is a lot to it!

Let’s Start With Why Introbiz:

Introbiz attracts business owners and organisations which gives you the opportunity to work with an ambitious, professional community.

They are the UK’s only networking organisation to have offered over 10 different types of networking events and facilitates hundreds of business connections via email each year.

Their members’ success is built on over 13 year’s experience with their ‘Power Group’ format, shining a spotlight to not only showcase your business but on the ‘human’ element, which explores unexpected synergies available both at the events, and via referrals.

It’s a supportive community, built on the value of trust – the more we support each other, the more business will be done.

Their mission is not just to provide you with a platform for effective networking, it’s to create a network of symbiotic relationships where business thrives.

Introbiz members are at the heart of everything they do, and they strive to nurture the community as it grows. They pride themselves on providing highly effective connections to every one of their members to help grow their business and life.
