Business networking group 4Networking looks to go global

The company already has foundations in place for the first groups in Ireland, Oceania and North America to be launched next year, and 4Networking’s development director Terry Cooper is currently investigating other territories like Hong Kong and Singapore. 
4Networking claims to be the only organisation of its kind which allows its members to attend any of its groups, and this global expansion will not only roll out the format to business people in other parts of the world, but also open new doors to UK members to take advantage of international business opportunities. 
“We’re establishing ourselves in the English-speaking nations first of all,” says 4Networking managing director Brad Burton. adding “Once those are up and running we can look at mainland Europe. We’ve achieved our aim of becoming the biggest business networking organisation in the UK, so what’s next? The World, of course.” 
4Networking, launched in 2006 by Brad Burton, now claims to be Britain’s biggest joined up networking organisation. The companies approach is to offer an informal and flexible approach to business networking, it is the only organisation of its kind that allows its 35,000 members to attend any of almost 300 groups across the UK. At each meeting, members have three business appointments in the form of one-on-one slots with other attendees. 
Each group runs fortnightly, from 8 until 10 am, and members can visit up to four meetings per week. For more information visit
