About The Greater Newry Business Network
The Greater Newry Business Network (formerly Newry Business Focus) was set up in 2014 by likeminded business men and women to get together on a weekly basis to share business ideas, and business strategies for the benefit of all.
The ethos of the networking group is to promote, empower, and support each other in a relaxed manner, through a positive exchange of ideas which allows each business to grow.
Our goal each week is to promote each of the members businesses through our own contacts and contacts of our guests.
Through the weekly networking meetings we get to know each other better and understand each other’s businesses.
The invitation of inspirational speakers provide expertise across industry which will share best practice thus benefiting your business within the network.
There is no obligation on anyone in the group to bring guests but we highly recommend that you do.
The more businesses that we have in the room, the more we can spread our network it will generate more business for all within the network.
Why network with us
We understand networking and we are trying to change the way people think about boring, stuffy, network groups.
Many people think that networking is about stuffy meetings, people with briefcases, handing out business cards, giving you the “hard sell” and talking incessantly about their business rather than listening to you about yours. In many networking groups, this is actually the case.
We understand that not everybody feels confident enough to give a big presentation in front of large numbers of people explaining why you should use their services or recommend them to your friends.
Maybe you have dipped your toe in the water in other “Networking Groups” and found that they were not effective, no-one was interested in your business or they were not suitable for your line of work. If that is the case maybe you should contact us and see how we can help.
We cater for all trades and service providers. If you supply a product, service or are in any type of profession, we can help you. Many people wrongly assume that Business Networking Groups are only for people in suits who are used to giving professional presentations in front of large groups of people. We are determined to change your perception of this and to provide something different.
So, let us be as clear as we can, if you are in business, of any sort, regardless of your size, regardless of your turnover, if you want more customers and you want to promote your business to like minded individuals who will help promote it to their contacts – we can and want to help you!
