Who Are We?

We are a small but very effective group of business owners and representatives based in the Newport, Torfaen, Cardiff and South Wales regions.

Dragons of NewportIn the last year our members have gained 520 new contracts which have lead to over £250,000 worth of invoiced business.

We proactively learn about and refer each other’s business and are committed to growing our membership base. We are looking for likeminded individuals who are serious about growing their business to join us and make, what is becoming a very powerful networking group, even stronger.

The Dragons Business Network Group is made up of only one business from each trade which although restrictive, allows us to provide quality referrals and we do not have to compete for work amongst other members of the group. Although only 1 business from each trade, BNI we are not! We are non-profit and our membership is currently only £150 for the year with NO joining fee! Compare this to other networking groups in Newport, Torfaen, Cardiff areas.

If you like the sound of our group, why not find out if there is a vacancy for your trade and come along to one of our weekly breakfasts as a guest^^. We meet every Wednesday at 7:00am at The Ridgeway Bar & Kitchen in Newport. Yes it’s early but we do it this way because it doesn’t interrupt our work; we finish at 8.30am ready for the business day ahead. Oh, and in case you were wondering, our free quarterly open events will still be held at Rodney Parade (home of Newport Gwent Dragons), so keep an eye out for these events an don't forget to register.

Join us for a morning and see the group in action; we’ll even pay for your first breakfast!

^^ If you would like to attend as a guest, please contact a member or email us so that you are booked in, please do not attend unannounced.
