Make the most of your membership
The guiding principle in Drive is that we’re here to help each other, not to sell to each other, but we all need to understand who you are, what your business is and what skills and expertise each of us has, and so we encourage you to share as much as possible with other members. We have a number of ways you can do this
Facebook: Join our Facebook Group and add it to your favourites on Facebook. ‘Like’ our Business Page. Tick the “Get Notifications” and “Following” tabs so that you get the notifications. Every Monday and Friday join in our on-line networking in our Facebook Group where you can update everyone on what’s happening with your business. Every Wednesday from 12 noon – 1pm GMT join our “Ask the Expert” live Q&A on a range of topics. Use the Group to get instant support and answers to your business questions with no spam and no selling.

Get what you want by helping other people get what they want
The more you get to know other Drive members informally, on-line as well as at meetings, the easier it will be to build trust and to extend your network of people who are happy to recommend you to their own networks.
One of the best ways to build trust is to share your own skills, experience and knowledge to help other members.
Help us to help you
We want to promote your business both within our membership and through our on-line networks, newsletters, blogs and press releases. We can do this more easily if you let us know what is happening, so keep us up to date with your activities. We’re happy to brag on your behalf!
Get free business advice
The whole point about Drive is that we’re here to help you build a successful business, not just get you sales leads, so whatever you need advice about, just ask, and if its confidential we’ll keep it that way.
We hope you’ll have fun being a member of Drive and that you’ll help us to help you to grow your business!
