Sterling Networks continues rapid growth with successful launch of Bristol group
Listed Under: News
We are delighted that we have now successfully launched our new ‘virtual’ group in Bristol, continuing our plans for rapid growth in the area.
The new Sterling Bristol Breakfast group launched in July and now brings the total number of groups within the Sterling networks group to 21 across the South West, Midlands, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire
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 we have been able to sustain our ambitious growth plans by ‘pivoting’ our strategy and moving all networking meetings from a face-to-face to a virtual environment via video conferencing tool, Zoom.
As a result, we have been able to continue to support business leaders in establishing new relationships, whilst increasing our 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 at Metro Bank, the new Bristol-based networking group provides 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, said: “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 new virtual networking group in Bristol couldn’t have been more positive.
“We look forward to welcoming more new members in the coming weeks and months and helping them secure more business, as well as resuming in person meetings when safe to do so.”
