“Gatwick Diamond are, in my view, the most supportive business connecting and networking organisation I am a member of. At the beginning of the CV-19 crisis they were quick to offer a digital response to allow members to share experiences and learn new ways to move their business forward – this was essential mentally as well as potentially economically. The team are definitely a ‘glass half full’ (you can decide what is in the glass!) and I know will help me if I ask”
- Steve Jebson, Business Doctors
“As the world Lockdown, GDB sprang into action! The online networking events have been a boost for my sanity – so good to see familiar faces and many new ones. The learning sessions have been essentiall, both in terms of sharing and gaining innovative and practical ideas. I very much hope that GDB continues with the online offerings… even as we emerge blinking into the light of ‘real’ world.”
- Joe Cheal, Imaginarium
“It’s been a real pleasure taking part in GDB virtual events both as an attendee and as a facilitator.” It has been a fantastic opportunity to get to get to know more members and to find out what’s happening in their world in these very challenging times. The virtual environment has been very different but in some ways more effective cutting out travel time and cost and enabling more focused conversations. A definite winner from my perspective. “
- Jeff Downs, Quantum Sales
"gdb events are professionally run, engaging & informative. The team have adapted to remote & virtual delivery & the events continue to bring opportunities to meet & to work with new people whilst hearing from & influencing those we need to influence.”
- Jeremy Taylor, The Company Connector
“During the early stages of lockdown the events programme was a much needed platform to be able to communicate and understand how everyone was operating under the challenging situation, the events I attended were extremely informative and helpful and certainly helped by knowing we were not alone, the 2 webinars we delivered were very well attended and enabled us to reach out, engage and offer assistance , advice and help with our relevant remote solutions , thank you GDB “
- Barry Hunt, Principal
"My membership of GDB proved its worth again this year, the toughest year for business that I can remember. Rather than seizing up, as other networking groups may have done, Sally, Jeff and the team seized a chance and ran full-pelt into the new online world. Thank you for doing everything you could to be continue to provide value for money. "
- John Young, John Young Media
" As I relatively new member of GDB just before lockdown, my entire experience has been virtual. I have learned from and communicated with a wealth of interesting and engaging business people. As well as making some great contacts, I enjoyed delivering a webinar about EOS (The Entrepreneurial Operating System) the attendees were engaged and I supplied many of them with free copies of the book 'Traction' which is a great introduction to what I do. It has all been positive and I look forward to meeting many of these new contacts in the flesh starting with the breakfast meeting in October."
- Brandon Harris, Elevate Business
"PRG Marketing Communications joined Gatwick Diamond Business in early 2019, following attending a couple of events as guests. The GDB team were incredibly welcoming, keen to ensure that we made new contacts and got the most from our visits. Since then, we’ve attended plenty of events in person and online and been really impressed with the calibre of the membership, the quality of the meetings and the ability of the GDB team to understand your business and to help to connect you to other members. You soon find the meeting format that suits you best and, like all networking, you get out of it what you put in. But their events soon become “must attend” and were immensely useful during the height of lockdown this year. I can’t recommend Gatwick Diamond Business membership enough if you’re serious about making connections in the South East of England."
