Networking from the comfort of your own home

AWE operate regional online meetings and face to face business networking groups throughout the North East of England.
Our online virtual groups are still free to join, and offer North East business owners, entrepreneurs and managers the chance to connect with like minded but non competing businesses. Money, valuable advice and strategic contacts are frequently passed in these meetings.
As COVID-19 contact restrictions are lifted, our face to face meetings – scheduled at times so as not to inconvenience your working day – are gradually restarting. This is an ideal opportunity to meet the people who have the power to make a real difference to your business.

Better in Business Together

AWE firmly believes that we are all Better in Business Together and it is with this ethos that we run our groups and offer our support.

Your first two face to face visits are only £5 – including your lunch and refreshments – to give you the opportunity to make sure we are the right fit for your business.

We currently have weekly groups running throughout the North East in Newcastle, South Shields, North Shields, Gateshead and Durham. Places are limited as only non-competing businesses are permitted.  

If you are placed on a waiting list you still can join our virtual meetings and take advantage of our business training and tools till a place becomes available.

You can book your place on our virtual or face to face groups below

Promoted Members Forum

Our promoted members forum offers you:

Your very own web space within our site

As part of our own marketing efforts your ideal clients are directed toward this site where they are not just presented with a ‘directory style’ business name and address but your very own page complete with images, logo, business description and testimonials.

When other members have useful contacts or business for you, they can simply send that contact your business page together with a personal note of introduction.

With every piece of work that you complete, or help you give to another AWE member then adding a testimonial couldn’t be easier. They submit their testimonial on your page and after it has been moderated by us (and you) it goes live as yet another positive affirmation and reason why your potential client will buy from only you!
