The Aylesbury Group celebrates its 1st Anniversary
Vale Life Magazine (December 2018)
First Anniversary for The Aylesbury Group The Aylesbury Group TAG) is currently celebrating its 1st Anniversary. Founded in December 2017 as an invitation only networking group for senior leaders of professional businesses in and around Aylesbury Vale, TAG very quickly established itself with 24 members joining up at the first meeting!
Members signed up for an initial 6 months’ trial membership and now a year on, what is arguably the premier business networking group in Aylesbury Vale, has over 40 annual members. TAG normally limits membership to one member from each profession/sector, holding meetings on the 1st Tuesday of the month at The Watermead Inn, Lakeside. TAG’s Chairman, Paul Bolton, from business development consultancy Bolton Services Limited, has commented: “We are delighted that TAG has evolved as initially planned, developing into such a great business network of like-minded senior professionals.
The development committee thanks the members themselves for their very enthusiastic support and contributions. To see and hear so much superb interaction between members’ businesses is a fantastic testament to the work that has gone in to develop TAG in to the networking group that it is today. During our first year, in addition to our ‘normal’ monthly meetings, we have held special events, including TAG Socials, Sponsors’ Events and our first annual Banner Event.
We also held Speaker Events and were delighted to have a very special guest speaker in the Rt Hon David Lidington MP, giving us his views on some local, national and international issues. We look forward to welcoming our local MP back for a TAG Round Table Business Surgery in 2019, which will of course be a very interesting year for all businesses! We regularly have 40 to 50 attendees at our meetings and very much appreciate the continuing great feedback on what we are building in TAG. Looking forward, we wish to develop TAG further for the benefit of both our members and the wider business community in Aylesbury Vale and beyond.”
