Benefits from Refer-On
Members are Business Owners and Leaders of start-ups & small-to-medium businesses, Independent Professionals or Public Sector leavers and those leaving the Services. They are encouraged to meet on a weekly basis, usually for breakfast, to maximise time effectiveness.
A great number of us have set up our businesses with great talents which we sell to clients: Photography, Solicitor, Web Designer and so on. What many of us need to know is the business angles. Who do you need to support your business? Can you read a balance sheet? What on earth is a balance sheet?
Come along and learn how to exploit a balance sheet.
Refer-On is a very special business association which, unlike conventional rule-bound networks, provides a relaxed yet professional and mature atmosphere, supported by the Chatham House Rule, delivering a unique and significant combination of benefits.
The meetings are designed to add value to your business by providing presentations and workshops, which are needed for your business. Maybe you would prefer, non-pressurized peer-to-peer coaching. We also have an ‘in the Spotlight’, where a soft pre-arranged interview helps us understand the member and his or her business in a really special way.
Business challenges crop up and when they do a member can deploy the efforts of the Hub in a ‘Think Tank’ scenario. The knowledge and advice of Members help the business owner make better informed, more intelligent decisions about business strategies and issues. This is critical to business owners and other professionals who either cannot afford such a luxury or prefer the function to be independent (Chatham House Rule applies).
We offer a corporate support-type infrastructure without the bureaucracy and membership of one hub includes membership of ALL hubs across the UK. Additionally, training & education workshops, at preferential rates, in sales & marketing, team building, time management are available. There is also a member’s intranet.
