Here’s What Our Members Have to say about The UK Business Circle
We are so proud to work alongside the most diverse, engaged, talented, funny and trustworthy businesses in the UK. They have told us what they think of The UK Business Circle.
“Cannot recommend UKBC highly enough, it does wonders for your business and self-confidence!”
“Gavin & Laura truly care about what they do, especially fostering the amazing community in UKBC. They are unfailingly supportive, whether it be promoting your business on Twitter, curating content and asking on your behalf the business questions that you were too afraid to post yourself – you would be surprised how many people answer!” – Henry & Katy – HDCW Video Productions
Real Forum & Community
There are loads of different services that claim to be like the UKBC but they are faceless automated services. UKBC are very real with a terrific community to talk to, share ideas and discuss projects. No screaming and shouting for work, everyone is polite and share real ideas.

Best networking group I have found
I have been a member of the group for a while now and made my account premium back in January. Money well spent as far as I am concerned. The support you receive within the group is invaluable to a small business such as myself and the work Gavin puts into the group is clear to see and appreciated by all.

Like an extended family
We have been members for nearly a year after a recommendation. Despite not been as active as we should we will definitely be promoting this group to the north east this year. The group is like an extended family with free advice and guidance available to all. Happy to continue our membership for many years to come. Thank you Gavin & Laura.

The best networking group there is
I started my business in August 2013 and joined UKBC early 2014, I have found support, customers, suppliers and given and received advice from its members. Gavin has ensured the group has always been friendly, supportive and spam free and has at times worked tirelessly to improve and grow the group. I would have been lost without UKBC for sure.

UKBC network is by far the best for me
I have been a member of the UKBC and in contact with Gavin since February 2014. This is an amazing group and that is down to the hard work put in by Gavin and Laura. I have made friends, gained clients and suppliers and given and received fantastic advice through the group. I don’t know how you do it Gavin but keep up the great work.
