Business networking organisation continues rapid growth with launch of new Bewdley Group
A UK business networking organisation is continuing its plans for rapid growth with the launch of a new ‘virtual’ group in Bewdley, Worcestershire.
Sterling Networks, which currently has 19 networking groups across the Midlands, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire and the South West is launching the new virtual group on Wednesday 24th June 2020 and already has 11 new members based in and around Bewdley to kick off the first meeting.
Founded in 2014 by husband and wife business duo, Neil and Tracey Davis, Sterling Networks prides itself on integrity and helps professionals build genuine, profitable business relationships that enable them to increase sales and discover new suppliers.
Despite the challenge presented by COVID-19, the dynamic organisation has been able to sustain its plans for rapid growth by ‘pivoting’ its strategy and moving all networking meetings from a face-to-face to a virtual environment via video conferencing tool, Zoom.
As a result, Sterling Networks has continued to support business leaders in establishing new relationships, whilst successfully increasing its members by 21% to well over 300 members since the end of March 2020.
With plans to reintroduce face to face meetings once social distancing measures have been lifted, the new Bewdley based networking group will provide the opportunity for business leaders from across a range of sectors to meet on a fortnightly basis, enabling them to establish new relationships and drive new business.
Neil Davis, co-founder of Sterling Networks, confirmed: “COVID-19 has impacted firms across all sectors and there couldn’t be a more crucial time for business leaders to grow their networks and support one another through sharing their skills, knowledge and expertise.
“We saw an opportunity to continue supporting the business community by taking things online and the response to our virtual networking events couldn’t have been more positive. We are, therefore, really excited to be launching the new group in Bewdley this June and look forward to meeting new faces and helping more members secure new business over the coming months.”
With an impressive membership retention rate of 90%, Sterling Networks is fast becoming one of the UK’s leading business networking organisations.
As the organisation’s 20th regional group, the first Bewdley meeting will take place on Wednesday 24th June 2020 from 06.45 AM via Zoom.
