B90 Business Network Launch
Arthur Marsh Insurance Brokers, founders of the B90 Network
The B90 Business network opened its doors for the very first time this week giving professionals a chance to network, who are all focused on developing business growth across Solihull and the B90 postcode.
For businesses looking to make the most of the expertise and opportunities available locally, the B90 business network is the answer. The launch event, hosted by Mark Farren of Arthur Marsh Insurance Brokers, took place on the 28th January at the Cambrai Court offices in Hall Green, and saw over 15 professionals networking from across the B90 postcode.
Martin Clifford and Jack Chapman of the B90 Business Network, hope businesses and professionals will maximise on local expertise and opportunities, attracting both customers and suppliers. The duo realised despite the large number of businesses within the local area, there was a distinct lack of local B2B sourcing within Solihull, Shirley, and Hall Green.
Mark Farren said “As a commercial insurance broker we have clients across the country. However, there are many businesses locally that could really benefit from our services but reaching them is difficult. I would also like to source services and harness local talent. These are just some of the challenges facing businesses on a local level. This is why I feel an independent business to business networking group for the area is so important”
Not only will the network provide an opportunity for business professionals to expand their network on a local level, but it’s also a chance for businesses to support Hazel Oak School. Donna Cleaver, the schools Business Enterprise Liaison, represented the enterprise college at the launch event, and expressed how useful and effective the B90 Network will be to her, on being able to access key professionals within the community and harness local businesses for future work experience placements.
