After a long career as an exporter, Mike Stokes entered the world of SMEs as an Export Adviser at the start of 2004, quickly establishing a reputation for his new business as a result of prolific and effective networking.
Towards the end of 2009, Mike started a business networking group in Lincoln and after rapid growth this became the best-attended club of its type in Lincolnshire.
Expansion into Peterborough followed in 2015, with the result that Mike and his wife now run fortnightly events in Lincoln and in Peterborough under the brand Positive Networking.
Mike claims to run more formats of networking than anyone else on the circuit. Positive Networking events are packed full of highly-participative and collaborative activities which are designed to develop the business owner as well as the business.
