Circle2Success: Getting businesses together to build valuable alliances

Circle2Success is a different kind of business membership organisation dedicated to working with its members on the accelerated growth and development of their businesses.

We believe there is incredible value in being able to tap into the collective experience and knowledge of a group of trusted peers.

Our members have said that these forums are a critical component in their busy schedules as they look to connect, short circuit challenges and develop alliances that add real value to their businesses.

2015 has been a phenomenal year for C2S seeing membership grow to more than 100 companies, representing a regional turnover in excess of £4billion and employing over 39,000 people internationally.

Membership now stretches across Gloucestershire, Bristol and Bath. Members like Abbey Business, Bruton Knowles, BPE, Creed Foodservice, Dean Close, Gloucestershire College, Gloucester Rugby, Gloucestershire University, Green Gourmet, JS Securities, Local World, Oberthur Technologies, Omega, Prima Dental, Protrack and Renishaw have all gained great value from being part of this business community.

One of our focuses has been to develop closer relationships between academia and business and we have some very exciting plans for 2016 having kick started this initiative at Renishaw with students from schools and the University getting together with local businesses.

The launch of our sector groups has also proved to be very popular.

Through our leader and executive forums, CEO/director lunches, visits, masterclasses and focus groups, members can develop relationships, make connections and access the latest thinking by collaborating with some of the country’s most successful businesses.

In 2015 we were delighted to bring to our members sessions delivered by some of the international organisations we work including CESG (the cyber arm of GCHQ), Ricoh, PwC and EDF.

In 2016 we will continue to work with all of these leading organisations as well as being joined by the Allied Rapid Reaction Corps and our delivery partners GillFoxJames, HR Champions, Nick Marlow and Quolux.

It was also a very proud moment when we received our Bronze Defence Employer Recognition Award from Dame Janet Trotter for our work with the military.
