I joined TLGC to improve my communication skills, grow my customer base, meet local businesses & forge new relationships.
If I was asked to describe what TLGC has done for me it would be this – imagine a very shy, nervous, person who lacked confidence & hadn’t slept the night before a meeting because they were worrying about what their pitch was going to be, who they were going to meet & what they were going to say to complete strangers. I have now chaired meetings, had the privilege of being involved in developing the strategy to grow awareness of the brand, hosted many presentations, taken on service roles such as Secretary & 10 minute rota organiser and also made loads of new friends & affiliates I trust enough to share my customers and contacts with.
I also feel comfortable enough to share my business challenges in an environment that is safe & confidential. I have learned how to engage people when pitching the features & benefits to be gained by using my business.
This is all well & good I hear you say – what about getting more business? Oh yes, I’ve done that alright! The new clients I have gained have more than covered the cost of my membership. Does my story Strike a chord (or chords) with you? Well why not come along to our next meeting under no obligation to join, what have you got to lose?

I have been an enthusiastic networker ever since I first set up my own business and became a TLGC member because I wanted to join a club which valued atmosphere and relationships above the rule book.
It wasn’t long before I also saw the value of starting additional clubs in an executive role. Now I’m Regional Director for Essex, Suffolk and East Herts and this gives me a second income to add to thesignificant number of valuable leads and contacts which TLGC regularly provides and which are of considerable benefit to my Colchester-based magazine publishing and copywriting business
