Business Events for SME'S

Connections, advice, support and referrals.

Our networking groups are extremely successful at ensuring that attendees generate new business sales and also establish contacts which enable them to run their businesses more cost effectively.

Viva Business Networking has been established since 2009 and was created from research from business owners.

The organisation has been built on the needs of its attendees. We listen to feedback from business and provide the services they need which includes training, support and business advice.

We run monthly events, business exhibitions and special business events.

What our members say about us

Lunchtimes are a great time!......

"I think the Viva format is great and for those of us that don’t like too many breakfast meetings – or cant attend at that time,it’s a good time to network! I feel lunchtimes are not so rushed and this works better. "

Viva Networking is a great place to meet suppliers and new customers...

"I have been attending Viva Business Networking for over 5 years now. Viva with Debbie Gilbert at the helm as been one of the best business decisions I have made. Since attending Viva almost 70% of my work is generated through the support, loyalty and commitment of all the companies who attend. When referrals are passed on they are genuine and more often than not successful because of this. Debbie is one of the best networkers I have met and continues to network outside of Viva's groups. Networking is how we have grown our business and I have learned so much about the networking "world" since attending Viva. Through networking I raised my profile tremendously which has lead to over £10,000 per year of work for our business which continues to grow, in addition to the relationships and friendships I have gained from such a wonderful but most importantly supportive networking group. I have been a member of a number of Networking organisations over the past 6 years but none have supported me and my business the way Debbie and Viva Business Networking has and continues to do so. As a result we are so busy now that we struggle to get to meetings and that is the best result you can get from networking and my thanks and gratitude lies with Debbie and Viva".

Viva Business Networking helps you increase the profile of your business...

Viva is fantastic. It's friendly and welcoming and ideal for those who want to meet other businesses in a relaxed atmosphere. The events are enjoyable, and you can visit any of the Viva groups which is a great way to expand your network. Viva always has great speakers at the events so you're picking up some really helpful business tips at the same time as networking. Other attendees are always happy to help and share their advice with you which can be really invaluable.

Viva also offers some great value training courses, from Facebook for business to how to get the most out of LinkedIn.

Viva was the first networking event that I ever attended and I have to admit that I was really terrified. But Debbie was immediately reassuring and didn't leave me standing in a corner. There's no pressure to create referrals, but you get to know the other people in a way that makes you want to help them out if you can.

I can recommend Viva to anyone, whether you are an experience networker or a novice like  I was back in 2009!
