Business Networking London

Acton Business Forum

Acton Business Forum is a non-profit organisation helping businesses in West London by:

  • Providing opportunities for its members to network and develop
  • Speaking for business in Acton with local and central government and other bodies and agencies
  • Taking an active part in planning Acton’s regeneration
  • Aiming to unite all local businesses through communication
  • Educating through interesting speakers at our events

If you’re a local business, it’s important to network with others on many levels. Knowledge sharing in this way gives you ideas and helps you see your business from a different perspective. Networking also allows you to practise your sales techniques and lets others know about what you do and how you’re different.

The Acton Business Forum will be holding events every month, each with a different speaker, with an aim of enhancing your knowledge. We won’t bore you with speakers who aren’t relevant to your needs but will strive to present interesting topics that will give you something practical to take away with you.

Business Junction

Business Junction is London’s leading independent business network and the only business network dedicated exclusively to networking and finding new business opportunities for its members. They operate without barriers or borders, crossing London boundaries and unlimited unlike networks funded from the public purse.

Approximately 350 member companies come from areas across London – and increasingly further afield. The events are attended by businesses by decision-makers, looking for new clients and suppliers. You won’t find teams of bank ‘new business development managers’ looking for clients only.
