The Network Group has established a reputation for high-quality events for business leaders; events that deal with topics of critical industry importance. We also work closely with many clients and Delegates to create intimate, private meetings that focus on single-issue topics of importance in our fast-evolving business environment.

These are small, exclusive occasions, typically for 15-20 senior sector leaders, usually held over an evening meal or breakfast in prestigious venues. They offer Sponsors the chance to interact with senior industry figures, typically hard-to-reach executives, in a private forum. Our role is to ensure that everyone attending has a rewarding experience in terms of peer interaction, issue debate and resolution.

If time is money, then spending time in the company

of the right people is an investment.

 

The growing popularity of our Network Club meetings underlines the value they generate for all those attending; time well invested indeed.

Fold on top of this the necessary time to manage compliance and control requirements and you are left with very little time to answer those key questions from the business on how to steer the ship. ‘Where to go next?’, ‘what’s holding us back?’ and ‘where can we grow?
