A Kick-Start For Preston Businesses In 2015

2 March 2015

Hoppers business network

The ongoing success of the Hoppers Business Network has continued into 2015 with a very well-attended meeting as January drew to a close.

From engineers to cheese makers, a diverse range of 60 businesses were in attendance at the first Hoppers Business Network of the year, all discussing future plans with a view to possibly doing business with one another in 2015 and beyond.

haleys managing director Tim Haley spoke at the event to introduce those who had never previously attended, explaining what the Hoppers Business Network can offer in terms of networking and business development opportunities.

This encouragement was taken on-board by many of those in attendance who used the subsequent time wisely to form positive connections with like-minded businesses.

It’s not just the businesses that profit either; there is a mutual benefit between the rugby club which hosts the HBN and local business owners who can take advantage of match day sponsorship and hospitality packages to entertain clients in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

The facilities at Preston Grasshoppers can cater for business meetings in one of the many conference rooms which is why, along with being located just a short drive from the motorway, it is the ideal host for the HBN events.

haleys is one of the founding members of the HBN along with fellow local businesses Harrison Drury Solicitors, Baileys Financial Services and Blue Wren. All three recognised the importance of helping to establish the HBN to assist in stimulating business activity for their clients.

If you’re a local business and are interested in finding out what joining a local community network can do for you, come along to the free HBN and meet a range of like-minded businesses. For information on the upcoming events and how you can get involved, visit the Preston Grasshoppers website at
