Welcome to the BEST Business Group

Established in 2001, the BEST Business Group is the friendliest business community for small business owners in the Surrey area. Our group of professional service providers meets weekly to exchange business leads and to learn from each other’s expertise. We are proud to offer a supportive community for SME owners to connect and grow their businesses.

Providing Valuable Insights

Our group mainly comprises heads of small businesses from a range of industries, including law, accounting, finance, advertising, architecture, HR, recruitment, and real estate. Each week, one member presents to the group on a specific aspect of their business, providing valuable insights into how their services can benefit small businesses in the area. Our members have the opportunity to exchange business leads and to learn from each other’s successes and challenges.

Fostering Growth

We understand the importance of choosing appropriate insurance, financial and marketing strategies, and how to build and grow a business. That’s why we offer a range of resources and guest speakers to provide information on a variety of subjects crucial to small business owners. Our goal is to help our members achieve success in their businesses and to provide a supportive and collaborative environment to foster growth and development.friendliest

A word from our members

Karen Young - Ethos Metrics

“I joined BEST in 2022 after attending as a guest. Why BEST, rather than any of the many other Guildford networking groups? From the outset, I was made welcome by every member and included in discussions. I learn something new and useful at every meeting. Plus, the atmosphere is friendly and supportive, not self-centred and sales-driven.”

Russell Harvey - Metro Bank

“I was hooked on the BEST concept from the first meeting I attended and instantly felt welcome and wanted as part of the group.  There is such a diverse mix of individuals and businesses, all with a determination to get on and find ways to share business as well as support each other.  I couldn’t recommend it high enough!”

Ken Mead - KM Consultants

“I am one of the founder members of BEST which was set up originally in 2001 and I believe the trust and the respect that I have for all the members is one of the reasons that I am happy to meet every week. It is not just the introductions but the knowledge and breadth of experience in the different disciplines that the members can offer and share with all the members each week. Now I am working from home it keeps me in touch with all the professions in one meeting.”
