What is the Perfect People Group?
Business networking is the easiest and best way to grow your client base, build relationships with trusted suppliers, and ultimately improve your business’ bottom line performance. Perfect People was formed because we recognised that there was a gap in the market for an affordable, flexible, no-commitment group that offered the potential for business relationships built on a genuine desire to help and support our local economy.
We believe that sustainable business relationships are built on getting to know, like and trust each other, by providing support and advice based on your own expertise. Over time, this trust will lead to better connections within the local business community, and allow other members to refer work to your company.
We organise business networking meetings across Yorkshire at various times of the day so that we can serve as many businesses as possible. This adds flexibility for business owners who can’t commit to attending meetings at the same time every week. Our two-hour meetings are designed to be fairly relaxed; with open networking, followed by the main meeting and finishing with a delicious meal and the opportunity to chat over breakfast, lunch or dinner.
We don’t believe in competition. We believe in finding the right fit between customer and supplier. We positively encourage collaboration between companies within the same industry.
For example, having two web designers in the room is beneficial to the group because they are likely to have different skill sets and price points. In fact, this means that people in the same sector are likely to refer to one another once they have developed a trusting business relationship.
Our networking group leaders are passionate about helping businesses to succeed. Along with our attendees and advocates we will support you to grow and develop utilising our own networks, ensuring you get the best return on your networking investment.
We don’t tie our attendees down to membership fees, we want to provide the flexibility to dip in and out in line with your business’ peaks and troughs. We don’t need to either! With almost six years of Perfect People we’ve proven our success.
We actively seek business owners, managers, business developers and purchasing staff to attend our meetings, get involved with our community (we’re online as well as having weekly meetings in our locations!).
Get involved and educate us about your business, let us get to know the person behind the business and we’ll not only buy from you, we’ll find new customers for you and there’ll be lots of laughs and fun along the way.
I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.Brené Brown
I have enjoyed a varied and fulfilling corporate career in sales and marketing in industries such as recruitment, sports and fitness, building maintenance and training. I now truly thrive on helping others succeed in business.
The vision for Perfect People was born from a very personal desire to help and support businesses to succeed, and following many steep learning curves I encountered on my own journey into self-employment, to be an ambassador for great business relationships.
I wanted to create a community of businesses that collaborated, supported and developed each other to grow which in turn improves the local economy. Our services support businesses in our region to realise their true potential.

Our sponsored charities
We are proud to support Yorkshire Air Ambulance via fundraising activities at our various business events and at our annual charity ball.
The Yorkshire Air Ambulance Charity relies on the generosity of individuals and organisations to help save lives across Yorkshire.
In fact as a Charity they only receive help through secondment of paramedics from the NHS, through Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust. To keep both of Yorkshire’s air ambulances in the air they need to raise £12,000 per day, £4.4 million per year.
As a rapid response air emergency service the Charity serves a population of approximately 5 million people across 4 million acres. Their two Air Ambulances operate from The Nostell Priory Estate near Wakefield and RAF Topcliffe near Thirsk, and together both Air Ambulances cover the whole of the Yorkshire region.
As an organisation serving the whole of Yorkshire we have chosen to support a true Yorkshire charity which saves the lives of our fellow Yorkshiremen, women and children every day.
