Latest franchise launch, Bizset Networking, a business networking forum

John Valentine is thrilled to announce that he is rolling out his Bizset Networking franchise across the UK.

What began as a single Chorley-based networking group quickly grew across the northwest with groups from Wigan to Stockport.

The formula has now become so successful that John is franchising his business and creating exciting opportunities for other entrepreneurs up and down the country.

Following a career in both accountancy and industry, John launched Bizset Networking 18 months ago when in his capacity as an accountant, he became acutely aware of the value of making local business contacts.

John comments: “Having a good network of connections is hugely important for any business owner as it provides people to call upon when you need referrals, advice or specific expertise. As Bizset has evolved, we have honed our offering to ensure attendees get the most out of every event and are able to build an extremely strong network of relevant business connections. All meetings are structured, relaxed and informal to provide every attendee with the opportunity to learn about each other whilst not allowing for any awkward silences! And it is working. We have facilitated a whole host of business deals so far and witnessed hundreds of meaningful and rewarding business connections being made.”

A year and a half on, Bizset Networking now has 12 separate networking groups meeting every two weeks across the North West.

John continues: “We received such great feedback from attendees that a few people approached me, keen to host their own groups in their own area and this is how the franchising opportunity was born. We are now able to offer small business owners the rare opportunity to invest in their own group. As well as obviously earning a significant amount of additional income from this, owning a franchise also provides a great opportunity to raise your profile in the local community and make some extremely valuable connections.”

Bizset Networking is an inclusive networking group that empowers attendees to build new business relationships and generate new opportunities. Bizset operates a mix of morning and evening meetings in various locations across the UK.
