We provide a foundation for local business leaders to connect, learn, contribute and share in a positive and meaningful way.

Welcome to North Worcestershire Business Leaders. We’re passionate about helping local business owners develop relationships, enhance their skills, share ideas and build a sustainable business.

As business owners, we all know how difficult it is to grow a sustainable businesses and at the same time stay connected to the outside business world. Time is precious and taking time out for ‘networking’ needs to be more than just ‘networking’. It needs to be rewarding, meaningful and create opportunities for growth.

North Worcestershire Business Leaders was launched with a vision in mind:

To create a relaxed and professional environment in which business owners can connect, learn, share and contribute with like-minded people and organisations.

Our partners

Hogarths Hotels, and in particular Hogarths Stone Manor are delighted to be a partner with NWBL – The North Worcestershire Business Leaders. Since my early meeting with Laura and Melanie I was sure that to host the monthly meetings would be beneficial not only to the attendees, but also to the hotel as we went through change of ownership and refurbishment totally £2.5m. Fellow members of NWBL now use the hotels, refer leads to me and generally support the great network Laura and Melanie have created.

North Worcestershire Economic Development and Regeneration (NWEDR)
In 2010, Bromsgrove, Redditch and Wyre Forest Councils merged their separate economic development and regeneration functions to create a shared North Worcestershire Economic Development and Regeneration (NWEDR) team. The key drivers for this decision were the desire amongst key stakeholders for simplicity, clarity, efficiency and improved impact.
The purpose of the NWEDR shared service is simple. It is to promote and enable growth and sustainable development within North Worcestershire.

NWBL has been a great opportunity for GTAccess Ltd to meet new people in the area who can offer products and services that could be of benefit to us as a company. It offers a very relaxed approach to networking unlike some of the other groups around there is no pressure to be passing on leads for other companies. All the speakers of been of great value and you always leave feeling that you have gained something.

I’ve been attending NWBL since it started and I’ve always found it a great event to meet new connections and catch up with old ones. It has a very relaxed atmosphere, no pressure pitches but always a good speaker.
If you want to sell to the room then this isn’t for you but if you prefer to make valuable long term relationships then come along and join us!
