Shout Network – The North West’s Leading Business Network

Shout Network is the leading business networking provider across the North West. We offer a relaxed, professional networking environment where members feel sufficiently at ease to represent themselves, and their businesses with maximum authenticity.  We are proud of our 80% membership renewal rate, which we attribute to developing our networking structure around our members’ needs and preferences.

Shout Network is not target driven. We do not keep track of referrals. We provide an unpressurised, successful networking platform at venues across the North West for our members to meet, collaborate and build relationships that benefit their business. Our members do the rest without the need to be told what great networkers they are!

Central Lancashire Business Club, part of the SHOUT Network

Business networking groups, Shout Network and Central Lancashire Business Club (CLBC), have joined forces to launch an evening networking event. Known as the Shout Central Lancashire Business club, the meetings will be monthly, open to all, and fees will be on a “pay per meet” basis. Unlike the regular Shout Network meetings, Shout CLBC won’t be single sector only and membership is not required to attend.

The format of the meetings is structured, but relaxed. Delegates sit at a table in a horseshoe or boardroom configuration and start by sharing good news and thanks for business referrals. Each delegate then promotes their business with a 60 second “shout out”. After a break, one member gives a 10 minute presentation about their business. The rest of the time is spent networking. The meeting is chaired by a member of the group with a member of the Shout team always in attendance.

The CLBC was established originally as the Chorley Business Club in 1984 to promote local trading, good business practices and collaboration with other business groups.

Our Network Partners

At Shout, you will never be under pressure….

To give referrals – we believe these flow naturally once strong relationships are developed between members.

To invite guests – although your guests are always welcome, we have a dedicated team working constantly to arrange visits for guests interested in attending our events.

To attend every event – we know you are busy, and we encourage you to get to as many events as possible, but we can build an attendance plan around your diary.
