Many people wonder what the benefits are of becoming a member or a professional organisation. At HMB, we want to bring the Havering business community together to grow, network, learn and connect.
Every business owner, whether they are a start-up or an established company, wants their business to grow. But growth doesn’t just happen from customers alone, it also comes in the form of developing your services and changing the way you do things. This is done through collaboration with other parties and can be achieved through the contacts that you know. By being a member of Havering Means Business, you have the opportunity to find the right connections to help your business grow.
The power of a network cannot be overestimated. In the borough of Havering there are approximately 10,000 businesses. But who are they? How can you get to know them? At Havering Means Business, it is our mission to help you build your network with companies that are on your doorstep. We host regular events so that you can get to know other businesses in the area better.
We never stop learning. Nor should we want to. The world is constantly evolving and the ways in which things are done changes. At HMB we want to share with each other what is happening in the Havering Business Community, we will share with you what we and our members have learned, in the hope that this knowledge can help you too. Each week we have guest speakers at our events sharing some of their most valuable knowledge with you. Come and join us!
Through our membership directory, events and social media platforms our members have the opportunity to connect with each other, offer support and advice, do business and form friendships. Come and join our friendly community in Havering and discover a new wealth of opportunities.
People who become members of a networking organisation do so because they want to feel part of a community, belong to a group of like-minded people and of course grow their business. At HMB, our community want to run successful businesses. Whether you are running a small hobby business, a start-up, or have an established business, it’s likely that you all want the same thing – SUCCESS! As with anything in life, the more you put in, the more you will get out. When you join us, we encourage you to be an active member of our community as the exposure can help bring business your way.
