The Business Improvement Network


The Business Improvement Network runs regular workshops and Open Space events, which have been hosted by member organisations such as: Automobile Association, Balfour Beatty, BSI, Computer Associates, CQI, Eli Lilly, Ernst & Young, Johnson Wax, Oracle, O2, Orange, Prudential, Royal Mail, Siemens and UK Atomic Energy Authority.

By members hosting or sponsoring events, we are able to keep the cost of attending to a minimum, and add value by holding events in some extraordinary offices and venues.

If you would like to host an event please contact us.

The events are usually run in an Open Space style, giving participants the responsibility and space to connect with others and discuss what really needs attending to in order for them to share and learn from the group.

Workshops and training sessions will be organised and offered exclusively to Business Improvement Network Members on topics related to key elements of business improvement. If you would like to suggest a topic, please tell us.

To receive advance details of all Business Improvement Network events, join the Network now.


Up coming events:

After a series of Virtual Events we are planning to recommence the highly success Face To Face events, using Open Style as a methodology for delivering great value for participants. 

We will continue with virtual business improvement events, which will be free to attend.

If you have any suggestions for Speakers or Topics, please get in touch.


Hold the Date: 1st June 2023 

We are recommencing the in-person Open Space business events this summer. The first will be with partner and sponsor Buzzacott. Buzzacott are a top 25 Accontancy firm, with over 600 staff in their wonderful central London offices. They are providing space and support which means the cost to attend is significantly subsidised and therefore reduced for participants. 

For this first event, we have chosen The Future of Work which will give you plenty of scope to talk about what you need to talk about, and to connect, share and learn from and with others from a broad range of businesses and backgrounds.

By popular demand, you have asked for regular business improvement and networking Virtual Sessions to keep the conversations and connections going. 

If you would like to suggest topics and speakers, please let us know.
