Years of networking and connecting

MBN has been creating relationships and connecting businesses – large and small – and from across all sectors since 1994. Despite the changes that have taken place in how businesses engage with each other, MBN has maintained its mission to provide an environment that fosters relationships.

We acknowledge that as our world has become more highly digitised and that we need to enable businesses to engage and collaborate with each other online. So, just as we have created opportunities for our members to engage in person at our events, we have now created an environment for them to engage online.

As a member, you will now be able to find like-minded business owners and thought leaders to connect and share ideas with, to collaborate or work with and to learn or seek help from. That is our objective for each and every member and our community.

MBN has invested in a business assessment tool which enables you to better understand what areas of your business require improvement and where new opportunities lie. Our Business Health Check will allow you to identify and determine future change and distribute your resources effectively.

MBN runs both off and online events for members. These provide members the opportunity to connect and engage with other businesses in order to generate business opportunities, grow referrals, support each other and just catch up socially.
