Connect - from The Networking Retreat

Whether you make your business work, or not, can depend entirely on who you have in your network, how you engage with your network, and who you have to guide you to do so.


Your network might be the people you are connected with on LinkedIn, the people you've met in real life who aren't clients yet, and any number of other connections.

Your network may be the people you're marketing to, who have yet to buy from you.

In fact, you might be really frustrated that you're doing all the right things, and still aren't making enough sales.

Sound familiar?

I'm Stefan Thomas, author of Business Networking for Dummies.

I’ve built my business around my network so that my clients now include Lloyds Banking Group, Telecom Plus Plc, BT, Oqema, Instinctif Partners, The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants and many more. I speak on stage in front of 1000s of people, and my books are Amazon bestsellers around the world.

I've worked with a huge number of experts in their fields, and captains of industry in the UK and around the world.

In 2011 I became Network Director of 4Networking, the UK’s fastest growing business networking organisation, and took that network to over 5000 networking events a year across England, Scotland and Wales.

Along the way, I worked out how to make every business relationship count and how to spot which ones to move forward, and how to make the most of my network.

Connect, from The Networking Retreat is a unique, invitation only networking community. For just £99 per month you can network with mature and ambitious business owners. You'll get the chance to network with, collaborate with, and learn from, people who have been there and built their businesses and their network already.

Imagine networking done properly. Networking for grown ups. Meeting with people who don't just try to sell to you, but actively look for opportunities for you, or opportunities where you might work together.

I always had this vision of a virtual team. A group of people with complementary skills, and the ambition to use those skills to build their business. A group of people who also understand that working together, sharing ideas, experiences and knowledge can help us all to grow faster. By being part of a virtual team, you get the benefits of being part of a much larger organisation, with colleagues you can learn from, colleagues who might pass you business, colleagues who will hold you accountable to your goals, and colleagues who can advise you when things aren't going as planned.

Plus I lead the group and personally act as mentor, adviser and guide to the members, giving as much or as little advice as each of them need.

We meet, on Zoom, twice a week to network, and share ideas and advice.
