Wessex 100

High performance network

The Wessex 100 is a high performance network of senior decision-makers and interim executives committed to building the regions’ growth and prosperity. Through active engagement of experienced executive talent, the group is creating a powerful forum for the benefit of members. In these constrained times, the value of a vibrant and evolving network is clear. Our basic tenet is ‘to give before you expect to receive’ – a principle that underlines positive and effective business networking. Benefits of membership:

  • Sharing experiences and ideas with peers and developing business opportunities together.
  • Learning about the regional market and meeting key influencers and decision-makers.
  • Improving business access to expert interim resources.
  • Improving interims’ access to local business projects.

The Wessex 100 meets quarterly for a formal dinner. These events involve regional business leaders as guests and a notable, high-profile speaker. Attendance at dinners is by invitation only, either through a member or as a guest of our committee.

Member testimonials

The Wessex 100 is a hugely valuable organisation, bringing together business leaders and the expertise of the leading interim managers in our region. Now, more than ever, our region’s business community stands to benefit from using these talents to support strategy and secure sustained business success. High performance business networking at its best.” Norman Armstrong – Grant Thornton LLP

A very enjoyable evening amongst high-calibre business people. In comparison to more run-of-the-mill networking events I’ve attended, I do believe there is much more potential within the group both in the form of extremely useful contacts and in gaining a better understanding of the talent available in this region.” Sue Elseden – Publicity Project

The occasion was fantastic. I met some key contacts, two of whom I will be doing business with, but more importantly it was great to connect with so many like-minded people.” Steve Jones

It attracts some sixty professionals from the area who meet each month to catch up over an excellent two course lunch. There is no membership fee, no speeches, just good food, lively conversation and the opportunity to network at a friendly, convivial and fun event.
