  17. 17. Testimonials “I joined Birmingham Future after attending the AGM in 2005 and meeting roughly 30 new people within the space of an hour. Now, I meet with 10 of them on a regular basis to discuss the development of Birmingham Future, have referred our own work and clients to a number of those contacts, and I have received several cases referred to me. This has been a terrific opportunity for business development, without the prescriptive, Americanised structure of a networking group, and my personal development.” “I returned to Birmingham, my city of birth, just over two years ago after studying and working elsewhere for about six years. During this time, the city changed dramatically both in terms of the high profile businesses here and the development of the city centre, including the Bullring and the Mailbox. Birmingham Future has been an excellent way for me to re- discover what the city has to offer young professionals and has given me the opportunity of meeting other like-minded people through a variety of interesting and useful events.” www.birminghamfuture.co.uk
