Portfolio of Richard Dawson, RIBA architect based in Bingley, West Yorkshire, providing architectural services and project management.

Richard joins Business Connections Bradford

Recently I have joined one of the most successful established marketing groups in the area called Business Connections Bradford (BCB).

BCB is a group of locally based companies and sole traders who meet every week to help each other increase their business.  It is a dedicated professional business network group for business owners and managers and has a whole range of specialist professionals.

BCB only allows one member in each business category and as the group was without an architect they approached me. When asked, I felt that it would be a good opportunity to promote my services and expertise within the group as well as network with a range of highly skilled tradesmen from different professions.

Using my ever-growing knowledge and expertise I will be able to keep fellow professionals up to date about the architectural world covering issues such as planning and building regulations for homeowners and businesses and other topical subjects such as disability access for owners and managers, eco retrofitting and low carbon construction.

The group meets in the centre of Bradford every Wednesday morning with the notion that each member will help each other to gain business through recommending each other’s services to friends, colleagues and business contacts.

Each member of BCB has to prove that they are able to offer first class service of the highest level in order to join. This, as a result, means that if you are looking for someone in the group to undertake work for you then each and every member is “pre-approved.”  Current members range from web designers to solicitors and utility consultants and represent some of Bradford’s most efficient businesses.

What I particularly like about attending BCB meetings is knowing that I can help other people gain more business and they can do the same for me.

If your own business category isn’t already covered, I would recommend joining BCB. To join, call 01274 775340 and come along to one of our early morning meetings and see what you think.
