I was introduced to Chris Garner of Professionals UK in August 2020, when I discussed with him the intricacies and functionality of working with Professionals UK. After speaking extensively with Chris, we decided to take up his option of locating Catax in the top spot on the Professional UK portal, which grants us the highest form of communication to over 30,000 members and a further 30,000 visitors.

We have been able to comprehensively utilise the platform to our advantage to network with new potential clients and professional individuals, completely changing our usual networking strategy for the better, which has resulted in a nett saving in our networking budget.

The platform is very simple to use, with specific industry categories listed clearly, enabling the finding of targeted individuals at ease. We have also found that unlike many well-known social media platforms, the response rate from people is extremely high and positive.

All in all, Professionals UK has been highly beneficial to our business activities and we are looking forward in seeing what it can bring in the future.

Thank you to Chris Garner and the Professionals UK team for their stoic support introducing us to the platform functionality, and for giving us such a rewarding personal experience.

Better Safety

Professionals Network endorsement

The Professionals Network has supported our practice in identifying potential clients that have an identified need within their business to improve or refine their management of health and safety.

As a result of the referrals from the Network, we have secured the following pieces of work: £5m Construction project in Liverpool city centre with a consultancy value of £16,000 over a yearlong project. This single project has led to the commission of a further two projects for the same client with a combined build value of £38m and a consultancy value of £80,000 over a two-year cycle. A second client who was initially referred to complete an audit on their existing health and safety management system (value £3,000) has gone on to commission a further secured service of £6,000 per annum for competent person. A third client within the construction industry has just signed an agreement for two services offered by our consultancy business with a combined total of £20,000 per annum.

I would highly recommend the Professionals Network to business professionals who are seeking highly qualified leads. James and his team have always placed speed of information and quality of service at the top of their business model, which allows us to focus on winning work from pre-qualified leads.

Find Online Recruitment

We've been using the Professionals UK platform for just over six months and it's been the best platform investment we have made all year!

Unlike other Professional networking sites there are no restrictions on the volume of outreach that is permissible, and no hidden costs

Not to mention the Professionals UK team are always on hand to support with the promotion of our networking events.

Delighted to say that it has already accounted for 10x the initial investment.. and we're just getting started.

CC Finance

I have been using the Professionals UK platform for less than a year. During this time I forged not only a couple of strong strategic relationships with estate agents and mortgage brokers on the platform but also gained two clients in both business finance and property finance. On the technical side, the platform is easy to use though what’s worth even more is that members are generally open to connect. Due to my regular postings I am approached by exactly those contacts who are most valuable to my business and who I am in the best position to assist. I look forward to continuing my membership with Professionals UK.

- Barbara Cação,CC Finance

Trill Marketing

I have been using Professionals UK for a couple of months now and I must say I am very impressed with the setup and the quality of contacts I have made since using it. The actual website is very easy to use and I have already got new business from fellow Professionals UK members which will pay for the cost of the platform. I would highly recommend Professionals UK to anyone who is looking to expand their network and grow their business

- Tony Hill, Founder at Trill Marketing

Max Potenti
Following an introduction from Professionals UK, I have been mentoring an entrepreneurial business owner who runs 2 complementary businesses. We have been developing a more formal business plan for a rapidly growing business, considering operating synergies and potential hiring opportunities and developing business terms for potential substantial supply contracts. The relationship is ongoing.

My best client!

I am so pleased that my membership of Professionals UK has been so worthwhile, as I have been approached by some great Companies interested in working with me!

But it is especially rewarding to now work with my best client to date, which came to me through Cheshire Professionals and Professionals UK. They have taken out my ‘retainer services’ and are a great and growing creative Company, where I can really add value on a monthly basis. Not only through the retainer services but also by creating and helping with various improvements and projects which range from creating bespoke Contracts and comprehensive Company Handbook, through to creating and implementing their first appraisal system and reward structure … right to L & D Training and development work!

I thoroughly enjoy working with them on a monthly basis and together we are making a real difference to the success of the Company and growing their talent and employee engagement, even though they only have less than 20 employees they are really embracing just what good experienced HR Consultation services can provide to their ‘bottom line’!

- Diane Sokolyk, Managing HR Consultant

Pzazz Sales and Marketing
I have been a member with Professionals UK for the past few months. In this time I've been able to connect with several different businesses throughout the country. It's enabled me access to companies I wouldn't have previously worked with and has vastly broadened my network. I use the service preferences on a daily basis to connect with new people, by sending personalised email responses. This has proven vital for me in my business and has been the main way of connecting with new clients and people I can do business with. The new business generated includes a sizeable annual marketing contract on a monthly retainer basis.

Unique Consulting Solutions
Further to the enquiry received last week via Professionals UK site I can confirm that i have been appointed to carry out the work.
Their search on line took them to your site through its high Google ranking, and through the details on my profile they were able to establish that i had the experience and qualifications relevant to their business needs.
As a result of the information available on the site they were happy with the fit with their needs so we could quickly move forward to an initial free no obligation meeting, which i offer to all potential clients to discuss their requirements. I then submitted a written proposal which has been accepted.
I will now be working with the directors on a initial 5 day project to assess the business and develop a strategy for its development. There is then the potential for an ongoing relationship as a non executive director to assist with the implementation of the strategy.
Clear the site is attracting potential clients in the Manchester area and I look forward to reporting further success stories in near future.

- Trevor Edwards, Director

Not Just Travel
I wanted to share that a few weeks ago I received my first booking via London Professionals.
This was from a completely New Client, I have built an excellent rapport with in a small amount of time and I’m very excited to continue working with this professional in the future.
Being an independent consultant can be somewhat challenging gaining the trust of others and proving a real competence to someone you may have never met or worked with before. I am able to truly express and show my value and my passion through my work and that's what I do its very natural to me. Reassuring you of my trust and professionalism.
My New Client is very happy and satisfied with the Concierge Service I provided this is always a pleasure however to gain a New Client that will now stay with me for the foreseeable future is my Goal. The Testimonial will be shared on my page for anyone who wants to take a look.
Since becoming a member of London Professionals over 8 weeks ago I have received an overwhelming amount of interest, views and messages and I just wanted to say Thank You to you all and I hope to be working with you in the near future too.

- Natalie Bartholomew, Travel Consultant

Secure Inheritance Ltd
This is a networking platform where people expect you to sell and share what your business is about. No need to worry about "posting" something every day or liking and sharing other peoples posts.
You are linking with several hundred like minded professionals who want to connect and do business but with the freedom to do it when it suits you or when you have an unexpected few minutes to spare. You don’t need to get up early for that breakfast meeting at 6am or interrupt your evening with another networking event.
Since joining in July 20, less than a month, I have linked with several like minded business owners, via Zoom link and telephone and made some very useful connections. I now have more referral partners and introducers for my business.
The systems are easy to use, you get great response levels, I have had close to 100 so far and have access to loads of interesting articles and newsletters and its simple to post your own.

- Gillian Hardy

Great 3 day conference generated through Professionals UK in partnership with Crown Clinic
Using the Professionals UK platform, Burgeon Events was very proud to team up with Crown Clinic to deliver a fantastic three day conference for FUE Europe at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Manchester. This three day annual conference was a groundbreaking event for the hair transplant industry as it was the first time many elements were brought to life together for one event. From streaming live surgeries to conference rooms, ballerina dancers in their dazzling, shiny butterfly outfits, to the traditional bhangra dancers, right to the Gala Dinner at one of football’s most iconic football grounds, Old Trafford, this event had it all. Operating from two venues using the Radisson Blu's hugely popular facilities and Crown Clinic's very own medical facilities, it was a truly wonderful three days with some unforgettable moments.

We would like to thank Professionals UK, Crown Clinic, FUE and of course our very own team for the memories that were made!!

I am pleased to say that Professionals UK worked for me. I gained a client who found my details on Professionals UK.

Totallyaboutpeople Ltd
I joined Cheshire and Professionals UK and began to steadily build contacts and it provided me with the opportunity to introduce my company to a variety of businesses, and for me to hear about them too. Within less than two months of being active on Professionals UK, we received a service enquiry which, pleasingly, led to a work assignment. Through the site we have established a new client, whom I know I would never have met through any other means, and with whom we hope to have a long-standing relationship. I also hope that our client has been encouraged by the professional service that they have received from us, thanks to choosing this site from which to seek the help that they needed.

After having a very helpful and productive meeting with James, where we developed an effective networking strategy for our business, I renewed my subscription with Professionals UK and also joined the Leeds and London networks. As part of our Marketing Plan, I advertised the course dates for our Management and Leadership training programmes on the upcoming "Events" section of the website and within 2 days we received our first booking. Hopefully, this will be the first of many

After over 25 years working with advertising and media people I must say Professionals UK are one of the most user friendly organisations we have worked with.

Knutsford Software Ltd.
I have been a member of Professionals UK for over five years since it was first started. There was just "Professionals UK" then Cheshire, Chester, Liverpool, Leeds, Lancashire, and London didn\'t exist. I have seen it gradually expand into those other areas of the country plus numbers of members have increased enourmously and there has been other enhancements as well which means finding useful contacts is getting better and better all the time. I have also had my company website redesigned by a member, which is now a vast improvement from my old one.

- Pamela Whittaker, Managing Director

Euro-Lang Translations LTd
We have found the Professionals UK website to be an essential part of our marketing campaign.

Trisha Bannister Mediation Services
I have recently successfully undertaken a mediation generated through the Professionals UK Website. The business involved was not a member, yet email contact with me was swift and uncomplicated. The mediation took place over a day and involved a workplace dispute where both parties felt their was no hope of a future working relationship. Despite these thoughts by the end of the day both parties had agreed a workable plan for a positive way forward and on evaluation would recommend this process to anyone needing to resolve workplace issues. The business involved stated that they would use Professionals UK again.

I have followed his guidance and post regular articles and discussion threads on the Professionals UK site. In addition, I have invested time familiarising myself with all the features available and contacted certain members with a view to meeting up to potentially do some work together. Thanks for all your help and assistance.

I used UK Professionals a few months ago and they put me in touch with two professional marketing consultants who were able to provide me with good, sound advice on how I could grow my business. I spoke with two marketing consultants who both were very friendly, reliable and knowledgeable for around 30 - 45 minutes at no charge and although I made my own notes, Laura was very kind and provided me with a written transcript of the conversation so I was able to use this information too. Very good and easy service to use, I will definitely use and recommend it in future.
