“As a partner of AFC Business for four years I have attended an array of different networking events including Breakfast, Wine & Canape Evenings, Directors and Sportsman’s Dinners and have thoroughly enjoyed every moment.  I've not only made some profitable business connections but also lots of very good friends.  Although I no longer sponsor the Business Club I will still attend all the events as not only do I enjoy going but the Club has become part of my life and is important to my business.”
Ally Case - Travel Counsellors

“Always an uplifting atmosphere and great conversations at the events.”
Steve Bulley - Head of Business Engagement - Dorset Chamber

“The community that has formed over the years at AFC Business is a strong one, and the events always enjoy an excellent attendance. What I particularly like is the diverse range of business that attend their events, which has helped me grow my own personal network.”
Justin Cohen - Commercial Manager - Beales Gourmet at The Italian Villa 

“It was my first dinner and third AFC Business event and I have always been very impressed with the calibre of guests, organisation and content. The community you have built is certainly a vibrant one and I have already made some excellent connections.”
Natasha Dochniak – Leonard Curtis Business Solutions Group
