Torfaen Business Voice, one of south wales’ most popular business networking clubs with over 65 members, has continued to support its members via a series of monthly ‘virtual’ networking meetings during the COVID-19 pandemic. Over 50 members have taken full advantage of the opportunities arranged by the committee to showcase their businesses and organisations through the virtual networking rounds. Additionally, businesses have been able to share and discuss their business experiences, challenges, successes and innovative ways of adapting their operations during the situation as well as gain support and benefit from fresh ideas provided by other members.
Torfaen Business Voice members come from a wide range of sectors across south wales and beyond; and include professional services (legal, finance, HR and coaching), digital/IT and creative services. A nursery school, local arts centre and a creative balloon specialist, for example, also demonstrate the truly diverse nature of the membership body
Louise Jones-Williams, Director of Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre, Cwmbran who attended for the first time at the recent July event said “I really enjoyed my first meeting of Torfaen Business Voice and found it very useful and informative. It was great to feel more in touch with the fantastic businesses in our area and discover what they have to offer. I am looking forward to not only making further contact with members but also attending the autumn events when I can let the group know more about what LGAC can offer the local community.”
Andrew Evans, Associate Partner at Green and Co Acccountants & Tax Advisors, Cwmbran said “The virtual business meetings, led by Torfaen Business Voice, have given me the opportunity to stay connected with local businesses, sharing insights and experiences during these unusual times. The meetings are well organised and structured, providing a great way to market our services and continue making new contacts while working from home.”
Steve Marsh of The Balloon Experience said “I have enjoyed taking the opportunity to keep in touch with fellow TBV members over the previous weeks and months. Being able to talk about new ideas and ways of adapting a business to the situation has been useful, supportive and enlightening.”
Torfaen Business Voice will be resuming its autumn programme of events from September.
