About Circle Networks
Networking for grown ups
As a business owner we get you. You started your business for more freedom and flexibility right? You’ve a passion for what you do and you want to make a difference to your clients and your loved ones.
So why would we force you to do things you don’t want to do? You choose when you come, if you can’t make it… because of family or client commitments then we understand that comes first. Just send your apologies, and book for a different event.
Think of us as on demand networking (like Netflix – customise it to your needs).
Our brand values
𝗙𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗱𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽 𝗙𝘂𝗲𝗹𝘀 𝗕𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘀:
The importance of building genuine friendships. Fostering a fun and supportive social atmosphere as the foundation for successful business collaborations and partnerships. This value acknowledges that strong personal connections, shared experiences, and enjoyable interactions can lead to better collaboration, trust, and long-lasting business relationships.
𝗣𝗮𝘆 𝗹𝘁 𝗙𝗼𝗿𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗱:
Our members understand that becoming a Go Giver reaps untold benefits. Forgetting about what we get in the short term, and adopting a pay it forward attitude has a huge impact on the people in their circles.
In Circle Networks we’re give you the skills to take charge of your own success. It’s more than just networking, we also give you resources, support, and our community.
Circle Networks connects entrepreneurs with like-minded individuals, providing opportunities for knowledge sharing, joint ventures and collaborations.
𝗣𝗟𝗨 – 𝗣𝗲𝗼𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝗟𝗶𝗸𝗲 𝗨𝘀:
We may not realise it but not everyone is like us. This can be a revelation, but when you find a community of “people like us” this changes everything. When people reciprocate, when they just get us, we love to go out of our way to make a difference for these people.
We sat down to figure out what people want (and need)
If you’re ready for more… more business, more time to work on your business, more ideas, more people who inspire you… then this might be the place for you.
We’re not for everyone. Some people love corporate events, rules and a rigid structure… just not us.
We designed our events for the mavericks, entrepreneurs who need freedom and flexibility. None of us like to be pitched at. So why sit in a room (virtual or real life) where thats the format?
Get to know the person first, after all, it’s what we think as soon as we meet someone, do I like them, are they like me, what do we have in common… and then the magic happens and we find out how they help their clients and we want to help them grow their business.
How We Got Started
Jamie remembers the phone call from his friend Greg Middleton that led to a conversation about starting something new. Jamie had recently left BNI after 5 fruitful years there, but had found the first 4 months of lockdown and online networking had not resulted in a single introduction. Gregs challenge was this; re-start your own networking events, just like the one’s you’d been running prior to COVID and I’ll join, I might even run a group.
Inspired by the challenge Circle Networks was born and at the time Jamie was coaching with his business partner Dawn Owen, they saw the opportunity to create something new that would help people regardless of any pandemics. Fast forward another year and Dawn realised that running a large organisation wasn’t for her and she wished Jamie well and he focused on supporting the growing organisation.
Jamie’s passion for connecting people, helping them to achieve more, faster by refining their networking skills in a fun and friendly format has led to a national networking organisation with huge aspirations. Now with a team of inspiring business owners running their Circle Networks groups online we’re going from strength to strength.
