The hand stitched home

" Not only have I gained new clients from joining PIB, I've learnt so much. In particular, what type of advertising works, how to get the best out of social media and lots of other useful tips. It's nice to share ideas and discuss the challenges we all face as business owners, many of which are similar"

Theresa Cox

Cheeta Rawlings

" Working by yourself can be lonely. I look forward to the monthly meetings, it’s good to chat through business issues. Like having a virtual team to bounce ideas off!"

Melanie Alford

Soulistic Therapy

" If ever I am looking for a service I can trust, I always turn to Orpington PIB. It’s reassuring to know they’re all recommended and professional"

Kirsty Manik

Language Link Ltd

" It’s not WHAT you know, but WHO you know. This is so true in business. If you want a really successful business, you need to have relevant connections. A smaller networking group feels more personal – and if you know each others' business well you can pass on a recommendation"
