Essex is a thriving hub for business in the UK. Being in close proximity to London, and having access to international trade routes through our ports and airports, means we couldn’t be in a better georgraphical location to do business. This is one of the many reasons that Nexus Networking is thriving and growing on a weekly basis – business-owners in Essex recognise that we are one of the most successful and connected networking organisations in the UK.

Never before has small business been so crucial to our country. In 2013, there were 4.9 million businesses in the UK, over 99% of which were Small-to-Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs). These SMEs collectively employed around 14.4 million people in the UK that same year, and last year the European Commission estimated the gross value added by SMEs as €473bn, or 49.8% of the UK economy.

We are starting to see the beginning of a new small business revolution, and Nexus is an organisation that has been supporting, and will continue to support, this movement by expanding our network and helping our members to grow their businesses. In order to do this, we’ve created many perks of a Nexus membership that will benefit both the individual members, and their businesses.

We offer regular, free business and marketing training, which helps business-owners in developing their companies and relationships with customers. On top of this, our weekly Speaker Series allows a different member each week to share with the group their business plan, tips, knowledge and success stories. This means members can learn from one another.

Membership also gives business-owners the chance to win a Nexus £50 Note – awarded to members who intoduce someone new to their group, or provide us with the best Nexus business case study each month. It can be used for a membership discount, spent with one of our members’ services, or donated to one of Nexus’ chosen charities.

Nexus also offer something unique for a networking group – a 100% ‘Success or your Money Back’ guarantee, meaning if you don’t see your profit double within a twelve-month period, you’re entitled to have your membership fully reimbursed. It’s adventurous, we know, but we’re confident we can meet that target.

Our members come from such a wide range of trades, industries and professions, allowing them to share knowledge and help one another. Just by joining Nexus, members already gain 20-30 new clients for their business, and last year, members saw an extra £27,000 in profit from referrals.The Nexus networking formula has meant over £2m has passed between members since 2011. The small business movement is beginning, and networking groups like Nexus are helping businesses grow.
