Yeovil Business Group (YBG) encourages enterprise and business growth within the local community, with the sole purpose of helping its members to increase their business through structured, professional and fun networking meetings, enabling the development of meaningful business relationship and even friendships.
Predicated on the idea that "what we give, we receive", our membership are committed to not only considering what they might get from attending meetings, but also what they might give and guess what?... It works!
We actively listen and support one another, providing active referrals and business.
