Making a Difference in Manchester
The highly acclaimed business community that is YAB – Your Affordable Board, which has grown quickly out of numerous Lancashire locations, had its inaugural Manchester event at Use.Space on Thursday 5th October. The event was an energetic and dynamic one with over 40 business leaders attending.
YAB is a peer-to-peer supportive community that approaches business in a different way. They believe that when business leaders make decisions from the heart and put people at the centre, success automatically follows. The YAB movement supports company owners and directors in a safe environment where problems and best practices are shared and networking is a natural byproduct.
Darren Neil, of Sales Geek has been a member since the beginning and comments; “YAB is a sandbox for us all as business leaders. It gives us a safe place to play, connect, try new things, feel supported and it’s soft if we fall over. It’s also the foundation of how business leaders will create community success in the 21st century.”
Founder Andy Henderson said; “From beginning to end the launch at the amazingly cool Use.Space was awesome. We had 35 leaders of Manchester businesses, all getting to know each other, forming bonds, problem-solving, and innovating. The Feedback from the session has been incredible. YAB is different, it’s unique, and it’s helping to change the way the world does business, and we are very proud of that!”.
As a YAB member, you can go to any group in the month – Lancaster, Chorley, Blackburn, Burnley and Manchester – which opens up a solid network of contacts and opportunities. YAB Manchester will meet on the first Thursday of every month at Use.Space, a coworking space in the heart of the city.
