Unlock Your Potential with YAB
Dear future YAB member,

You might not be familiar with YAB just yet, but you'll soon know that it's not just another business networking group. 

It's a dynamic community of like-minded individuals who are committed to mutual growth, support, and success.

Over the past two incredible years, our members (we call ourselves YABbers!) within various YAB groups have embarked on a profound journey filled with learning, genuine connections, and a deep sense of belonging. 

Within this newfound community, individuals and businesses alike have received invaluable guidance, resulting in remarkable transformations that have not only changed lives but have also left an indelible mark on their families and loved ones.

At YAB, we understand that the journey of entrepreneurship can often feel lonely and daunting. That's why we've created a supportive environment where you can thrive, grow, and make a difference alongside fellow business leaders who genuinely care about your success.

Our approach is simple yet powerful. 

Through structured helping and collaboration, we trade knowledge, not pitches.

This peer-to-peer model allows you to tap into unlimited expertise, solve any challenge, and grow your business together with other like-minded individuals.

But YAB is more than just a monthly meeting. It's a lifeline, a beacon of hope for those who have long felt adrift in a sea of disconnection. With us, you'll find solace in knowing that you're not alone. You'll be part of a community that stands ready to uplift and help you, every single day of the week.

Join us in this extraordinary adventure where every moment is an opportunity to thrive, to grow, and to make a difference, together. 

Whether you're a seasoned entrepreneur, corporate leader or just starting out on your journey, there's a place for you at YAB.

Together we’ll end the feeling of loneliness and isolation that we feel time to time. We’ll create a deep sense of belonging, and working together we’ll help each other navigate through the highs and lows of business ownership by helping one another solve problems, and relentlessly focus on our collective goals so that we can experience success – together.

Are you ready to unlock your potential and take your business to new heights?

Sign up today for a guest pass and become a part of the YAB community.

To your success,

Come along as our guest & experience YAB for yourself!
You know what it’s like at a normal business networking meeting?

We think it’s time for something different.

Imagine a community of business leaders (company owners and directors) getting together to solve each other’s problems. Then, add a safe environment where everyone can simply be themselves, and you have YAB. Because that’s the problem when you’re a business owner. Who do you talk to about your problems?

Sure, your partner at home will listen and be supportive. Your friends will give you sympathy. But you’re the one who has to come up with the answers. That's where YAB comes in.

Because every problem in the room is solved by the room. And best of all, during that process, we form stronger bonds than we ever would in a sales-focused networking event. And the sales come naturally.

Intrigued?

Join us at our next group meeting in either Blackburn, Chorley, Burnley, Lancaster, Manchester, Stockport, Plymouth and Barnstable and see first hand why we are the fastest growing business networking group that ISN’T really one!

During the meeting, you’ll have the opportunity to get your business problems solved in our mini masterminds and experience the power of every mind in the room all working together to solve one major headache for just one lucky business leader!

You’ll also get plenty of time to meet other business leaders in the local area and who knows where those relationships might lead to!

Oh, and did we mention that included in your guest pass, you’ll get breakfast and unlimited juice, tea and coffee to keep you going!

Don't just take our word for it, take a look at what just a handful of our members (YABbers!) had to say about YAB:
  • There’s no sales pitch, no 45 second speech – instead just a genuine opportunity to get to know other business owners, which naturally leads to working relationships forming and work being passed in the room! I absolutely love YAB, and highly recommend it to everyone I meet at Networking! - Stacie Batterham
  • It’s a place that feels safe, a place that gives you a break from all the anxiety and stress that owning a business brings. Everyone in the room can resonate with you on a personal level, having so much diversity and skillset within the groups helps you overcome “ANY” problem you may have. It’s just powered by mates - how ace is that 😀- Dave Liggins
  • Not sure you can put “I just bloody love it” so I’ll expand…I look forward to Yab, and I go to whichever extra Yabs I can get to.. because I know I’m going to come away feeling positive and clear minded for my own business wether I’m the one being helped or if I’m helping others, as well as the feeling of belonging to a group of likeminded people I can share any news with and I’ll be supported! 🙌 - Lucy Waide
  • ​As a business leader I love the fact that you can share fears and mistakes and the consequences are positive recommendations. Everyone’s success is our common goal - Pam Steed
  • ​​There are very few business networks that are as much about others as they are about you, but then YAB isn’t your standard business network. YAB is a community of likeminded people. People who want to grow great businesses but also invest in others to see their businesses grow too. YAB is about sharing the challenges and celebrating the wins, however you walk into the room. Who wouldn’t want to hang about in a space where people genuinely care about how you are doing in and outside of work! - Dave Scholes
  • ​YAB is a sandbox for us all as business leaders. It gives us a safe place to play, connect, try new things, feel supported and it’s soft if we fall over. It’s also the foundation of how business leaders will create community success in the 21st century. In decades to come, 2021 will be looked back on as the year YAB Made A Difference - Darren Neil
