Networking is about meeting people and building long-term relationships. You need a vehicle to meet the right people, those with both a buying and selling power, from the right companies - representing a broad range of services and with a similar attitude towards active networking.
Business network Scotland's approach
Business Network Scotland holds monthly networking events in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
BNS events bring together decision makers from a wide range of businesses who wish to promote their business and to expand their network of service providers.
Attendance is resticted to decision makers who have both a buying and selling authority. The events are structured but informal with an aim of creating an ideal environment for constructive, and enjoyable, networking.
Each monthly BNS event takes the form of a structured two-hour session from 12 noon to 2pm. Following a pre-lunch reception when there is time to mingle and chat, you will be seated on a table with decision makers from other businnesses, but none competitive with your own.
Over lunch, each person at your table will be given the opportunity to explain about their company or service. This interactive session has proved a very successful way to develop business relations.
Each month you sit with a different group, or you may choose to be seated with someone specific.
At each event a BNS member also has the opportunity to make a short presentation to everyone present (the Speaker's Slot).
Once you have experienced a BNS event you will see for yourself how Business Network Scotland could benefit your company and be in a position to consider membership.
Membership is corporate and open to all types and sizes of business. Membership is restricted to decision makers at Director, Partner or Senior Management level within your company.
The number of members from similar types of business is also restricted so that each category of business represents no more than 5% of the total membership.

Meeting the right people in business is key and BNS has the best environment for this to happen. Having attended all three locations (Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen) we have many good contacts and clients from every one. KBVO has been a member since 2003 and our commitment to being part of BNS's circle is as strong as ever.
