What’s it all about? Business Networking at the BDA

The Lytham St Annes BDA (Business Development Association) was set up to help its members’ businesses grow by bringing together a number of local companies for breakfast, all of which are committed to referring business to each other. All the BDA networking group members are selected to ensure there is no competition between them, so the focus remains cooperative and collaborative. Because of this, we accept only one person from each trade or profession within the group. Check the members’ list and see which positions are open.

The BDA is a members club and is run by members for the benefit of the members.

As you may or may not know, business networking is by far the most cost-effective method of gaining new customers/clients through word-of-mouth recommendations and high-quality referrals.

The main aim and focus of the BDA is for members to get to know each other and to form trusting business relationships so they are better prepared to give referrals and recommendations when the opportunity arises.

Each member of the BDA is committed to helping other members find new customers/clients through word-of-mouth recommendations.
