Having been involved with e-factor since it launched, and worked with most of their staff at some point, I was intrigued when the Business Hive was launched. Two things were important to me when I considered joining: firstly that it really would bring likeminded business people together in the spirit of sharing ideas and opportunities; and that secondly it would involve no hideous forced speeches and mandatory attendance. I can genuinely say I have not been disappointed.

The Business Hive not only offers a first class opportunity to network in an informal and conducive setting once a month but it has also put on invaluable training and additional events such as Biztips and Business Hive Live.

My only complaint so far has been that in over three years of being a member I am yet to win a bouquet of Kate Lister’s flowers in the monthly business card raffle.
