MEMBER TESTIMONIALS

WILMA ALLEN

Evolutionary leadership coach and Founder of Being at the Cottage

"I said to someone a while ago that I hated networking and he asked, could I be in a room with the wrong people?


With BBN I feel I am in the right room now."

LINDSEY BLACKWOOD

Textiles Designer and Founder of Countess Ablaze 

"I've been inspired by the network. The team noticed my issues and reached out to me to provide extra support. It was a simple act that really helped me to feel less isolated. 


I immediately got out of my head spiral and into research of what comes next for my business and personal life."

MIKE WALKER 

founder of Freckle Create

"I think without BBN I don't think I'd have found what I'm here to do quite so quickly or easily"

Lindsay Blackwood

Textiles Designer and Founder of Countess Ablaze 

"I've been inspired by Hannah. I have a bricks and mortar shop and do light manufacturing and have worked out of the house through the pandemic. I'm exhausted, frustrated and been so focused on my employees' needs to get through the pandemic that I've completely neglected myself. Hannah turned up at my door last week with a big smile and flowers; it was a simple act that really helped me to feel less isolated. I immediately got out of my head spiral and into research of what comes next for my business and personal life."

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why is there a waitlist?

By only opening membership three times a year it allows every new member to be properly greeted and supported with a welcome programme and individual support from our business development team. 

Why do I need to apply?

We want to make sure that you’re ready for what the network has to offer and that you are a ethical business with a real drive for change and impact. It’s important that we get the mix right for all the members.

Are there any discounts or scholarships available?

Scholarships are available to business owners unable to pay the monthly payments on a case by case basis, with up to 10% of the upcoming applications available on bursary. 

If you choose to pay annually rather then monthly you get 10 months for the price of 12. 

Our lowest tier is £45 which gives you access to the private Slack Channel, members area, weekly newsletter, fortnightly workshops including workshops, wellbeing sessions and speed networking. 

You also get to invite one guest per month to the speed networking and have nomination and voting rights for the Impact Fund and other government campaigns.

I’m already a member of  another Business Community. What makes you worth it?

We offer you an everyday support network via our Slack channel. You have the option to upgrade to a facilitated accountability group, which will place you in a small group who are there to support and push you to reach your potential and help you through the tough times. 

This is the next generation of business network, which actively works to make sure you get your return on investment in your membership costs.

We don’t expect you to pay a year up front like some of our Competitors (unless you want to!) because we know you need to manage your cash flow. 

Most importantly our focus is helping you to establish foundational support in your business and network to help it be a sustainable, resilient company, while helping you look after your mental health and wellbeing.

You also have agency on how your fees are spent and we offer a full money back guarantee if you feel we are not the right fit for you.

What is an accountability group and what’s involved?

An accountability group is a small group between 4 and 8 business owners which is facilitated and managed by a member of our Community team.  

You discuss your goals for the month ahead, your wins from the last month, what challenges you are facing and what you need support with. The group all contributes to give advice and support.

How big are the accountability groups?

No bigger than 8 members. We place our business members in groups based on experience and needs. If you feel a group is not right for you we can move you to a new one. 

Who are the Business Coaches for Tier Three?

We have three different business coaches for you to choose from for Tier Three members who all bring a wealth of experience and qualifications. 

Tier Three members can choose the Business Coach that works for them or be recommended who we feel is the best fit for you. 

You are able to change your business coach whenever you like and all are available for a 10 minute introductory call before you make the decision to move forward with them.  

How is my membership fee spent?

Currently the lowest membership fee is £45 +VAT pm. We keep all spending totally transparent. We share the income and spend of the Better Business Network in a quarterly report, including what was spent on operations, marketing and to our partners.

Members then collectively vote on what the remaining revenue and membership fees are spent on – including the donation we give to high-impact non-profits and money for training and development programmes.

What is the Impact Fund?

The Impact Fund is our way to give back to the community. We are partnered with 1% For The Planet and we give a percentage of your membership fee to an Impact Fund and each month we all choose one charity to give that money to. 

How much time do I need to contribute?

You get out of the network what you put in. It’s important to contribute to the conversation, support and help your fellow members.

We hold bi-weekly Monday Club speed networking sessions and workshops to give you the opportunity to meet other members as well as through our community slack channel. We actively encourage you to connect in the way that works for you. 

If you opt for the membership tier with an accountability group, these are held once a month and again the more you can attend the better for you and your team. Workshops and wellbeing sessions are of optional and most are recorded to be viewed in your own time. 

How do I access all the resources and recorded sessions?

You will be given access to a members portal alongside a Slack group where you will be able to access all the free resources, workshop recordings, and chat to your fellow members.

What is the schedule for sessions?

Monday Club is fortnightly on a Monday at 2pm.

Wednesday Wellness Reset sessions are weekly at 9.30am

Workshops are fortnightly on a Thursday at 2pm

Accountability groups meet on the first Monday of the month
