“People have an inner DRIVE to be good at what they do, to be self-directed and connected” – Daniel Pink

Whether you’re pivoting, starting a new business, or trying to keep an existing one going, we’re here with practical advice, personal support and most importantly, real connections with people who care and understand what you’re doing.

When you join us as a Premium Member for £29.95 a month you get individual support, introductions to potential clients, partners and collaborators, plus mentoring and accountability to help you reach your goals.

I’m Ann Hawkins, the founder of Drive, and I’m proud that most of our original members who joined us in 2015 are still enthusiastic members and we’ve been joined by many more small business owners who love being part of our tribe – and we’d love you to join us!

How we work

We focus on collaboration and peer group learning – we’re stronger together!


You get knowledge, support, opportunities to collaborate, referrals, team marketing and great people to have fun with and work with. We help you be the best boss you’ve ever had, to enjoy your business and your life and do it with people who understand exactly what it takes and who happily share what they’ve learned along the way.

We help you reach the people you want to do business with, and in return you help other members to do the same. Our unique brand of subtle networking is the opposite of pushy referrals and much more powerful because its all based on trust.  Mentoring and accountability helps you build a business that gives you choice, freedom, and a great life.

Our network has always been diverse but we want to do better. We challenge bigotry and discrimination wherever we see it, we’re boycotting Facebook which openly and knowingly encourages dissent and misinformation as well as facilitating the funding of extremist organisations, we support the Conscious Advertising Network, The New Citizen Project and we actively enable and encourage collaboration over competition and openly share expertise and knowledge.
