B4 Business

The B4 Network is a crucial site for your business to be on. Endorsed by some of Thames Valley’s most influential business leaders, we are looking to build on our network of Ambassadors with businesses of good standing and calibre.

We don’t want lists of businesses we don’t know. We want businesses who are recommended to us, so that we achieve a standard, a given level of service, product and attention to detail.

Putting a ‘face to a name’ and encouraging business by ‘word of mouth’ will never have been easier than through the B4 site. Eliminate the risk in your business choices by getting involved in the B4 Network and find other business who share your values, who can help grow your business.

Position your business alongside some blue chip names in business. Make the new B4 website your number one priority, and don’t forget, the sooner you get involved, the higher up the rankings your business can stay.
