The Made in Bury Business Academy has without a doubt made my small start-up business grow - and fast! The accumulation of structured modules, peer support and expert mentoring and guidance from successful business owners, has combined into the perfect package that has made not just my business grow, but what it's done for my personal development is priceless. I would highly recommend the Business Academy to anyone. It will transform your business and you. I'm right, you might just not know it yet.

A warm and friendly group that has great contacts for a true networking experience and one that leads to business opportunities. As a new member I feel valued, supported and always leaving feeling motivated.
Being a maker can be a lonely experience therefore meeting this group of women regularly is an absolute pleasure, it doesn’t matter if you’re a sole trader or the director of a large company, all are welcome.

The North West Business Fair provided our business with the opportunity to form new relationships, with both customers and other like minded business. We used our best selling food products to engage delegates while educating them on our business and community links and involvement. This was highly successful and has lead to direct booking and further networking opportunity’s.

The Market! The best market in the North West by far.

This was Soothe Ltd's first time at the event and we took an exhibitor's stand. We did say in advance we would be offering complimentary chair massages and was a tad surprised to find we'd been squeezed into a corridor. This made it tricky to ensure we could carry out the massages and ensure H&S for passing delegates.
I was also about to be given a brown envelope by someone at one stage, only to have it taken back when I was told bourusiness was not a local Bury business. That felt a tad awkward and somewhat alienated. It felt the event was favoured local businesses.
That said, we did meet some great people from great businesses and look forward to seeing where those relationships develop.

Hi Peter, Thank you for the feedback. Regarding space, you were positioned in the upper lounge to give you A) More space and B) the opportunity to showcase what you were doing to every business that attended. Every single business had to pass through the upper lounge to enter the Holcombe suite. Regarding the GOLD envelopes, apologies if you felt alienated however this was to promote a Bury draw for Bury businesses and would not of been of interest to you! Delighted you made some great businesses, it's all about the follow up - good luck with those leads Peter!
Thank you for a great night at the #nwbizfair18! We attended 2 of the seminars which we found to be of great use to us! It has also given us great ideas going forward. We have also made some strong leads on the night at the speed networking! It was great to see everyone so busy. My time there genuinely flew in, looking forward to the next!

What an amazing, stunningly organised, well attended Expo! - I was made to feel most welcome coming all the way from Huddersfield and it was indeed such a pleasure to meet so many lovely, genuine business people. I now hope my expert services can be considered moving forward (radio advertising). Well done Debbi and the team, here's looking forward to the next one!

The Made in Bury Business awards 2015 was absolutely amazing. The team behind it Debi, Phil, Kathryn, Stephen & Holly, put on one of the best events on the Bury calendar. Bury is truly an awesome place to be and the businesses of Bury certainly know how to celebrate in style. Not content with just an ‘awards ball’ the event carried on into the early hours at the after-after party hosted by Belvoir Lettings at the Village Hotel in Bury. CT Business Solutions had a great time [hick!]. The competition in all categories was fierce with some fantastic companies making Bury a force to be reckoned with. Bring on MIBBA16.

It was a fantastic night, everyone was happy and the place was buzzing with excitement. The community in Bury have grown closer together and even if companies did not win, or did not enter they were still there to support other local businesses. The night itself was well planned, the room looked amazing and everyone was looked after. I cannot wait until next year, although I don’t think we can top this having won three awards!! Xx

I just wanted to write to congratulate you on a wonderful night last Thursday (19th November) for the Made in Bury Business Awards 2015. The whole night was a great success and it really was a celebration of the many varied and successful businesses we have in Bury. The event was very well organised and the atmosphere was fantastic. I can’t stress enough how much I enjoyed the whole evening.

I've been a member of the Ladies Bury Brunch network group for a year and I've got to say it's amazing. Truly inspirational women joining forces to help and advise each other, provide support and a motivation. Invaluable. Did I mention that as a group we also pass great business referrals ! This is a group that works. Thanks to each and every lady who is a member.

Hi Emma, glad that you enjoyed the whole process and celebrated in style on the evening itself! Great to have AFG LAW as sponsors.
As a new member of the Brunch Club, it was great to meet so many ladies engaged in such a wide variety of businesses, all passionate about what they do. The atmosphere is so warm and friendly that it's easy to get to know people and the food is delicious! I would encourage anyone to come along and take the opportunity to meet this lively and interesting group.

Been brunching for a while now - & the theory most definitely works. Girls who network together, stick together. I have used the services of about 6 of my lady brunch'ers and have been happy to help around 5. Fridays were made for Brunch Club!

The exclusive, professional women’s networking Group is thebestofbury Brunch Club! An eclectic mix of like-minded business women, supporting each other and our fellow local member businesses and charities... I am so proud to be a founder member... we are all committed to empowering women entrepreneurs by providing opportunities to embrace and enhance our unique strengths in a welcoming environment (the food is great too!)
This group is full of smart, fun, and hard-working women. Debi Fellone, supported by Kate Holt and Juliette Davenport, have created a forum for working women to support one another in all aspects of their busy lives. Their focus is to introduce talented women to one another and help them utilise their unique talents in connecting each other to other companies or individuals to help them springboard their businesses to the next level. I would highly recommend Brunch Club to any women working in professional companies or to women business owners in Bury.
