WELCOME TO CROSS REFERENCE

A UNIQUE NETWORKING GROUP HERE IN GERRARDS CROSS

All networking groups claim to be 'unique' don't they? But are they ... do they all genuinely represent a realistic return on investment in both time and money?

In truth, it's a difficult balance to get right. At the one end of the spectrum are the 'hard' networking groups, where you are expected to bring in a number of referrals each month, whilst at the other end are the 'soft' networking groups, which over time have come to exist more as a social forum for its members.

Cross Reference would like to think of itself as somewhere in the middle - friendly but focused.
