As a new business operating as a sole trader, joining Business Hive has been the best decision I have made. The First Tuesday networking evenings have given me some great contacts and it is an ever-expanding circle. Meeting new people, talking to them face-to-face about what I can offer has definitely been far more beneficial than trying to publicise my product via social media, on my own.

Running a business as an individual can be isolating. But, having the meeting facilities at Business Hive to catch up with clients or to conduct business outside of my insular environment has been great for my confidence as well as promotes a professional image that I would not have got from my home.

The best thing about being a Business Hive member is that I have now got access to so many more facilities apart from fantastic networking. Their business advisor is helping me exploit my full potential, the staff are pleasant and helpful, and the general ethos of the company is welcoming. Hands down, it is the best thing I could have done for my business. Thank you very much for everything you do for your members.
