Hello Dawn
Thank you for your e-mail.
I would just like to mention that at the last Board Meeting of YCE, the Board members were singing your praises.
They were very impressed on how you have made connections within Government and other strategic organisations and how you work tirelessly to ensure the Enterprise Agencies’ work within the community does not go unnoticed.
Thank you and your team on behalf of YCE.

- Jean Shelbourn, Executive Director, Yorkshire Coast Enterprise Ltd

Let me say a big thank you to you and the team for the 2014 NEN Conference. Despite taking the last two days off, I’ve come into the office this morning and found it buzzing with various discussions on topics from the Conference. We also have a “wash up day” planned to pick up on lessons learned and actions we are going to take. That “effect” is for me what conference is all about.

Membership of the National Enterprise Network has proved highly beneficial. In particular the regular meetings and newsletters provide networking opportunities and the sharing of best practise and ultimately enabling groups to come together to apply for regional and national contracts.

This highly influential national body has given us further credibility with both our clients and our Board, thanks to its high profile and representational activity.

The demand for the Barclays start up seminars we run as a National Enterprise Network member is huge and their delivery is a fundamental part of our business support services. Access to this valuable membership benefit enables us to demonstrate what we can do for our clients, builds up an element of trust and leads these clients into a range of other services we offer.

This collaborative, supportive and inspiring network enables us to share best practice, learn from our contemporaries and have a bigger voice and a larger platform to shout from.

Hi Dawn,
Further to the feedback from your recent meeting with DWP, this is the sort of access and dialogue that makes NEN unique and valued.

- John Mitchell, Chief Executive, Enterprise First

I've been impressed with the savings I made through the National Enterprise Network partnership with Lucas Fettes - one annual premium for my insurances cost me £2,000 less than before - much more than my membership fee alone!

- Norman Pierce, Chief Executive, Croydon Business Venture

At the 2013 National Enterprise Network Awards, the Let’s Do Business Group scooped three awards – a Highly Commended for our Unsung Hero, and wins for both the Enterprise Communicator and Best Mentoring Programme. Winning awards doesn’t happen every day. However, winning an award is really special. To be recognised by either your peers or an independent panel means a lot to both the people involved, but also externally.

- Graham Marley, Chief Executive at the Let's Do Business Group
