Health and Wellbeing Partner

“This past season was my first supporting the excellent competition Business Fives.

 

Firstly, upon meeting John it was easy to make the decision to get involved, his enthusiasm for sport as a way to encourage team/company camaraderie, increase awareness of exercise for health and use it as a way of generating money for charity is obvious and great to be involved with.

 

Upon getting involved, John has included my company at every step of the journey, allowing me the opportunity to speak with all of the participants, and their companies, both at the events and afterward.

 

The exposure has built the reputation of my company and allowed me to increase the number of companies I now speak to, stimulating growth, and increasing opportunity.

 

Overall this has been a very positive experience for our company and a worthwhile investment.”

 

Yours in health
