    The Club offers free membership to the Dean Close community including past and present parents and Old Decanians.  It provides an opportunity to come together, network and promote your business interests. It is a great way to meet people, at breakfast meeting hosted at School and at social evenings.

    Members can share their email and business details and can keep in touch independently through the Dean Close Business Club LinkedIn Group. With the shared interest of School, members can also volunteer to talk and present to our Business Studies scholars and provide mentoring and work experience opportunities, careers advice and guidance.

    The Business Club is a joint initiative between the Old Decanian Society, parents and everyone who is part of our School community is welcome to join.

    “It was (as ever) with some dread that I arrived at the end of the day to be sociable with a room a high flying business people and (as ever) it was a huge pleasure to meet those people that I did and I came away (as ever) feeling so glad I came…”

    Peter Holmes, Potter & Holmes Architects

    “I can confirm that I have gained three new clients as a direct result of the Business Breakfast Club. I have attended various networking events and the Dean Close one has been by far the most productive one!”

    Mike Gibson, MG Executive Travel

    “The Business Club has given me access not only to potential customers, but also to experienced and enthusiastic business men and women; all there to help and share their knowledge and experience. I have not only gained new business, but also advisors and friends. My advice to you is to come along to the meetings and see what The Dean Close Business Club can do for you.”
