About us

Who we are

Marian Arnold-Lawson – Owner   Maz

Business Introductions was founded by Marian – a serial networker in the Manchester area who saw a niche in the market for a more personalised business introductions service. (Think of a dating service but for businesses to meet rather than individuals!)

Marian’s background in Marketing and Business Development means that she understands fully the requirements of businesses to grow and to make valuable business contacts.

The saying: ‘People buy from people’ is 100% true and getting to meet like minded business people face to face is the key to successful long term relationships.

Hosts and sponsors

If you are interested in being a host or sponsor of our events then we would love to hear from you! Our venues are city centre based, hold up to 100 people and have a great atmosphere for professionals who want to network and have some fun at the same time. We are currently looking for host venues in Central Manchester so if this is you, please get in touch, or if you are interested in launching a Business Introductions networking group in other cities, please let us know and we can help get you up and running! If you want to sponsor one of our events and take advantage of exclusive promotion to 30,000 businesses across the North West, we have packages available to suit any budget, so get in touch at info@businessintroductions.co.uk and we can discuss what would work best for you! Thank you to all of our friends for your help in setting up and running our events.. we could not have done it without you all!


“I’ve commissioned Marian on several occasions and I’m yet to be disappointed. Several client marketing events and commercial projects with very positive outcomes. So when Marian turned to Business networking I expected something special….. and I wasn’t disappointed! Business Introductions is a very special sort of event, with a very social atmosphere and relaxed agenda it is perfect for productive networking, quite simply a pleasure to attend… Well done Marian…….”

Mark Stimpson – Greensky Architecture

“One of the best networking events I’ve been to. It’s always well attended with good business owner and suppliers worth getting connected with. Bubbly and really nice nibbles and a great atmosphere keeps everybody talking and networking. You’ve got to try it, once you’ve had the Business Introductions experience you’ll come back again.”

David Chapman – Melius BIC Ltd

“Having attended many events over the last 12 years Business Introductions is certainly up there with the very best. The mix of professionals was just right with most sectors covered, the food and drink was great but the real plus for me was the sense of camaraderie, everyone was interested in each others businesses & there were no people there that HAD to attend as their bosses made them; which is a refreshing change!! I have already cancelled another event so I can attend the next one!!!”

Russell Halter – Precise Commercial

“Marians networking events are great and she adds value to her events by looking for like minded business’s to meet. Great event keep up the great work at Hard Rock Cafe in Manchester”
