About the Leigh Business Group

Who are the Leigh Business Group?

We are the Leigh Business Group and we consist of a number of tried and trusted trades and service providers from Leigh and the surrounding areas.

We have been established for over five years.

We are a service provider and trade only group who work together to bring new business opportunities for one another whilst expanding each others current customer base through our extensive combined client network.

What does the Leigh Business Group do?

The Leigh Business Group holds regular breakfast network meetings every Thursday at 7am based at The Greyhound Hotel, Leigh just of the A580, East Lanchasire Road. We are members only group allowing only one member per trade/service.

Our Thursday morning meetings allow each member to tell every member and visitor about their business, who they are, what they do and why they are so good at it. At this time each member will have the opportunity to request introductions into specific businesses or business sectors through the other members vast network of contacts.

How does the Leigh Business Group work?

The Leigh Business Group is built on the foundations of tried and trusted trades & service providers from the local community. We work together to promote and generate local business for one another.

Each week a member of the Leigh Business Group has the chance to give a ten minute presentation on either their business or a topic related to their business area. This is a chance to enlighten the group about your business so each member can refer you for any opportunities they may come across.

“I was initially sceptical about the Leigh Business Group meeting, how wrong was I”

– Phil Rowson, 4 Years On & Still Attending

The Leigh Business Group works on a referral system of which we have found to be the most productive for our members. This works on the basis of each member promoting the other members businesses to their own customers, friends and family. The referral system is monitored and referrals are checked by the Leigh Business Group committee to ensure that jobs are genuine, quoted for and completed to a high standard.

The Leigh Business Group breakfast meetings should be classed as part of your working day and at the end of each meeting before breakfast we give out the amount of business that has changed hands within the previous week together with the amount of referrals handed out.

After the meeting we have an informal sit down breakfast in The Greyhound Hotel allowing Leigh Business Group members and visitors to further discuss business opportunities with each other.

You can come along under no obligation to two breakfast meetings as a visitor before joining where you can introduce your business and receive a free breakfast on both occasions on Thursday mornings from 6.30am where tea & coffee is available until the meeting begins at 7am. Be sure to bring lots of business cards to hand out to all our members and other visitors because you never know who might be in the meeting, it might be your lucky break.
