Testimonials

Matthew Firth

Within the first two weeks that I joined the BBG I made significant business development connections - way beyond what I would have been able to achieve without the help and support of the BBG, who made the introductions after the on-boarding meeting. I feel part of an active business community where there is a real readiness to step up and help one another. We are looking to connect with the hospitality sector and large corporates to provide our iconic fresh handmade sourdough brioche donuts.

Rob Kerry

Since becoming a member of the BBG earlier this year, I have attended numerous events with high quality content and decision maker level delegates. With the support of the business team and utilising the Business Advance benefits I can already confidently attribute new business through the membership. Marsh sees the BBG as a useful communication channel, where we can share market insight reports throughout the year

Erika Blazeviciute Doyle

As a small business owner, I am always looking to learn and get inspiration from other business leaders. Joining the BBG was all about meeting people, learning from them and seeing how we can become a part of a bigger picture. Connecting with others is so powerful in the post-Covid era and BBG are brilliant at providing the space to do that.

Research studies have provided endless data on the significance of diversity in the workplace, detailing the deficiencies in enabling representation in the corporate environment to progress. Our societies are telling us that we must do better. In an attempt to explain the multiple facets of diversity, inclusion and all that it encompasses, companies have to consider the means through which these topics are brought to the top table in a manner that speaks to courageous leaders and keen listeners; whether it is supported by a business case, the moral imperative or is just a story to tell.
