PRLog - Sep. 14, 2010 - LANCASTER, U.K. -- An entirely new concept in networking which has generated tens of millions of pounds worth of business for entrepreneurs in other parts of the country is being launched in Lancaster by American business woman Michelle Malkin.
The Business Network Lancaster will throw open its doors to potential new members at the Lancaster House Hotel on October 21st and founder Michelle is convinced exposure to a new and long established networking organisation will help local companies fight back from the economic challenges of recent times.
Michelle, who has had many years experience in business on both sides of the Atlantic said: “The Business Network model has worked exceptionally well in other parts of the country over the past 16 years, helping members to make valuable contacts and pass on business through targeted introductions.
“Now that tried and tested formula is coming to the Lancaster region at a time when the economy is slowly beginning to start to grow again. By bringing business owners and decision makers together at our monthly meetings, we are offering them a valuable opportunity to build alliances, explore new opportunities and win new business.
“The Business Network’s structured meetings, with a free pre-lunch educational seminar, provide an ideal forum for business men and women to meet, talk business and do business in comfortable surroundings.
Michelle, born in Maryland on the East coast USA, has traveled widely across the US over the years. She moved and settled in the UK in 2003 following her marriage to her husband Tony.
As a long established member of The Business Network, she has personally experienced the benefits of membership. But why has a businesswoman from Stockport chosen to bring the concept to Lancaster?
“I love this region of the country said Michelle, who has an office in Heysham. “But I also know this area has a vibrant business community.
“So when an opportunity came up for me to run a network of my own I had no hesitation in opting for the Lancaster region because I believe it will bring huge benefits to its entrepreneurs.
“I know The Business Network formula works. It has been highly successful elsewhere in the country because it enables members to build a network of trusted colleagues and friends who help with everything from business introductions to locating quality supplier partnerships.
“And as the network develops we will use different venues across the region.”
Doors open for the first Business Network Lancaster luncheon on Thursday October 21 at the Lancaster House Hotel at 11.45 am. The event finishes promptly at 2.00pm.
Attendees may also take advantage of a pre-lunch seminar which starts at 10 am and finishes in time for the lunch event.
