Business is what we do…

Networking

The Business Connection networking sessions are a fun and informal way of building meaningful relationships with other small business owners. There’s no pitching – it’s all about making working together in a spirit of community, connection and collaboration.

Group Workshops

Join a group workshop or mentoring session hosted by one of our Business Bestie mentors or a guest expert and work on your business. These sessions are an opportunity to get advice and pick up new ideas and skills to move your business foward.

1:1 Mentoring

Our Business Bestie mentors have a wide range of experience in running a small business and are able to offer advice, make suggestions, challenge you, act as a sounding board and signpost you to other people or services that you need to grow your business.

Mastermind

Join a group of six or eight small business owners in a one-off or six-month long programme of Masterminds. Here you will be able to “pick the brains” of other members on issues, problems or challenges you are facing in your business – and offer your ideas.

I'm Tracey Sweetland

tracey sweetlandI am the founder ofThe Business Connection, which started life in 2016 as a germ of an idea to create a hub for small business owners.

I have been on my own small business journey since 2014, when I co-founded a local newspaper with three colleagues.

Since then I have set up my own successful media and marketing company and been involved in the launch of a series of B2B and B2C magazines.

My vision for The Business Connection is that it will become the club I wish I had been part of when I first started running my own business to help me overcome the struggles of doing it all alone.
