Natalie and Allan understand the importance of networking to small and medium sized businesses. Their experience of running their own successful businesses has taught them just how effective networking is for forging those all important business relationships. After assisting with the running of previous networking groups, Natalie and Allan came together in November 2014 with the intention to take the best of all concepts and set up Dynamic Networking. Their strong belief that all businesses should be able to benefit from networking led them to ensure that Dynamic Networking groups are free to attend and inclusive to all.
