Jon Becker-Director-Acsol Ltd
I have been a member of PortfolioExec® for a few years and have known the Directors, Nigel & Ian, a lot longer. This is an extremely active organisation, one where all the members assist each other in a very proactive and effective way. The focus is always on developing new leads and ideas for members and I have been able to forge many new long-term professional relationships. The networking events (and I attend many) are well run and well attended and are always held at high calibre venues. It is crucial in these competitive times to try and stay “one step ahead” and being a member of PortfolioExec® helps me to do so.
Duncan Hopkinson – Director – EDR Financial
I have been a member since 2009 and have found membership of the organisation to be very worthwhile. In addition to meeting like minded professionals there have been a number of training initiatives and seminars which have been useful. However, the most important aspect of membership is the relationships that I have forged. This has resulted in me both winning new work from other professionals in the organisation as well as using certain member firms to do work for me.
Peter and Chanie Ravenscroft – Directors – Puresites
We have been members of PortfolioExec for over a year, having just renewed our membership. During that time, we have made valuable contacts through the organisation, both directly and indirectly. We have also received high quality advice and support from members through the many interesting and informative presentations we’ve attended. I would recommend PortfolioExec to any individual or organisation looking to expand their contact base and network with like-minded professionals.
Chris Jones – GunnerCooke Legal
I joined PortfolioExec five years ago and have found it a valuable source of learning, obtaining work referrals, raising my profile and meeting new contacts in the North West.
John Barnes – Chartered Director
I was introduced to PortfolioExec in 2009 when I was about to embark on a Portfolio Non-Exec career, after spending almost 30 years at Board level in both PLCs and Private Limited organisations. At this stage in my career, I needed to change the circles in which I moved and mix with professionals who had been in the portfolio arena for some time.
PortfolioExec gave me this opportunity. The help and confidence the membership has given me was and still is extremely valuable. Needless to say, I am now a member of almost 5 years standing.
Ben Wyatt – Director – Mathys & Squire
Whilst PortfolioExec provides excellent networking, it is much more than just a networking group. Every member is an expert in their particular field and the knowledge to be gained from talking to other members cannot be underestimated. I can honestly say that I gain something from every PortfolioExec meeting I attend, whether it’s a business introduction or a useful titbit of knowledge that I can use in my interactions with clients.
Anita Shaw- Spectrum Executive Business Services and member of the PortfolioExec Management Team
Becoming part of PortfolioExec was one of the best business decisions I’ve ever made. PortfolioExec is a business consortium that provides resources and opportunities for its members. The contacts that I have made, both directly and indirectly are invaluable and my business has grown substantially since joining the consortium and is continuing to develop. There is a huge amount of support from the directors and members and I am proud to be part of such a quality organisation.
