As many of you will know, I’m a huge advocate of business networking and have always attended and run regular meetings and events, ever since I became a business owner.
You may have also attended many networking events in the past, and some will have been beneficial, others not so much. But have you ever thought about starting your own networking business in your local area?
With this in mind, I’d like to introduce you to a new AFA member, Introbiz, an award-winning networking and events business.
What is Introbiz?
Introbiz is based in Cardiff and was founded in 2009 around a compelling vision – to make an impact on the business community by connecting businesses to their target audiences at five-star events and locations. It aims to address the expanding, evolving needs of modern businesses by targeting all networking channels, including events, exhibitions, seminars, workshops and, of course, social media.
Their people-first approach to networking combines relationship building, industry knowledge and, most importantly, trust, helping members to build valuable relationships, grow their businesses and become part of a supportive business community. They also strive to promote their members, of which there are currently over 300, with any announcements, news and product or service launches, ensuring they gain maximum value from their membership.
Introbiz hosts a number of exciting networking events throughout South Wales, the UK and across the world, ranging from power groups to socials, ladies’ lunches, golfing events and business clubs. A particular highlight of the Introbiz event calendar is the hosting of the National Business Expo in Cardiff, Llanelli and Newport, attracting over 7,000 visitors, hundreds of exhibitors and many world-renowned keynote speakers each year.
With quality, global connections, Introbiz has worked with some of the most renowned entrepreneurs on the planet, including Grant Cardone, Lord Sugar, Sharon Lechter, Baroness Michelle Mone, Hilary Devey and Kevin Green. They have also been invited to Necker Island with Sir Richard Branson for his tennis tournament, and have become referral partners for Premier Live, one of Sir Richard’s investment ventures that organises events at Necker Island. This provides Introbiz with the ability to take clients to Necker Island too.
