We’ve known Sonny for a while now through the Brighton networking scene – and not only is he a great facilitator of connections, but a super nice chap too! He can’t do enough for others and their businesses and is someone that should be at the top of everyone’s speed dial list!
Jeremy Horne
Since joining the Directors Hub I have made great contacts and new friends. I have been able to help others and I have also been helped in the way of knowledge sharing and introductions/recommendations. Plus I get to hang out with other people walking a similar path to me, and there is great comfort in that.
Ben Bennett
Second Voice Pro
The Director’s Hub is a perfect way to fully develop relationships with other like-minded business owners, sharing the highs and yes, the lows of running your own business. The peer to peer networking is an invaluable source of support and collaboration as we negotiate the sometimes choppy waters of small business ownership.
