What our members say
Before joining LB Connect my company had one local client – all the others were in London, Aberdeen, Birmingham etc. Now, five years later, I am pleased to say that almost half my business is conducted locally. That’s a huge saving on travel time and expenses. Not only that, through the group I’ve met some very talented and friendly business people that I can trust, which is so important when you need good local products and services. Colin Bryer, Partner, Impact!

I have been a member of LB Connect for just over a year. During this time I have grown personally, my business has doubled and I have had a lot of fun.Friday mornings we meet for breakfast. During this time there is always a great speaker, 60 second slot, business recommendations and thanks. The support and knowledge shared is amazing. Every week I come away with information to enable me to develop the business further. LB connect is a friendly, supportive group where members congratulate and support each other. This team has fun raising monies for charity etc, while offering services second to non in the local area. Sandra M Forbes. Business Development Officer. Forever Living.
I have been a member of LB Connect for over two years. I have enjoyed the company of a group of professional, friendly and responsible business people over an early weekly breakfast allowing me to network and still have a full day at my business. The interaction, camaraderie and local knowledge & contacts has been a positive for my business development. I would highly recommend this group as part of your marketing and development strategy for the Leighton Buzzard and surrounding area.

Since joining LB Connect about 9 months ago, I have been able to develop my presentation style and gain impartial feedback from friendly business entrepreneurs whilst learning
something about other professions that would not have been possible. Dave Gosbee, Partner, The Sports Therapy Room
