I am the business development manager at Pickford Solicitors and we have been Best of Walsall members for near 18 months. I would like to say a huge thank you to Alex and Sarah who go above an beyond to help all members, from top tips, social media posts, ideas, suggestions to organising networking meetings. During COVID many businesses closed, were worried if they would ever reopen but both Sarah and Alex remained positive and were on hand to help anyway they could. Networking meetings went on zoom, a new online helpful platform was launched all to benefit Walsall businesses. So a huge thank you for being amazing, and working to help everyone.
Sarah, Alex and the team have gone above and beyond during lockdown. Some may have left you to it but no. They have upped there game! Moving from meeting to online meetings. And not just that more regular meetings to check on all the connected businesses.
Till we meet for breakfast again!
I have only been a member of the Best of since the summer. In that time I have found them to be a friendly supportive group.
Organising regular business meets, and breakfasts. They constantly have been doing regular top tips to help the local businesses of Walsall.
I do worry about Alexs Jokes but po one's nerfect!
Having them as a link to my website has had a positive impact and over all they do what they say on the tin!
Alex & Sarah are a step above the rest always have a huge smile, and always happy to help no matter what. also there networking evenings are amazing, what a great way to meet other local business. and the more times i go the more new friends i make. My first visit to a BOW networking evening i was a little bit nervous and didn't really know what to expect, but i found it very helpful as i picked up several good contacts, now I've been to over 25 networking events and it only gets better, anyone who is contemplating on going should bite the bullet and go you have no idea how helpful these events can be and what impact they will have on your business.
Just wanted to say that last night was by far one of the best networking events I have been to in a long time, the format, the people and the food were great. So a big thank you.
