Business with integrity and professionalism

We are an informal business networking group.

Our members are a group of businesses, the majority of whom, are personally referred to the group by other existing members.

We promote the very best of business practices with “integrity” as the basis for all our business dealings and refer business to our members through regular meetings and social events.

Our breakfast meetings are held once a fortnight in Edwinstowe, in the centre of Nottinghamshire.

Be sure to check out our News/Blog section for helpful, informative and interesting advice on a wide range of topics.


•  All members should ideally be personally referred.
•  Only one profession or trade is accepted within the BIG*.
•  Meetings at Ollerton House (usually) every two weeks.
•  75% membership attendance required over 6 month period (substitutes accepted).
•  “Optional” evening meetings can be used to increase required attendance %.
•  Members will be deemed to have resigned from the group (majority vote) for attendance failure.
•  The BIG* logo and associated tags are copyrighted and may only be used by members of the Business Integrity Group.
