Access a community of like-minded professionals

Our business advice network includes specialists in HR, marketing, finance, law, IT, and other key areas of support. So, whatever challenges and opportunities your business is facing, we can deploy the ideal combination of skills and knowledge to suit your needs.

When you work with Henchards, you’re not just gaining the wisdom of an adviser, you’re also benefiting from access to a community of business owners like you. This means you can expand your network of contacts, make useful introductions, and potentially unearth sales opportunities or business partnerships.

We’re big believers in the power of referrals and love to help business owners make valuable connections with their peers. That’s why we run regular joint events for the business community – and we also aid local charities through these events.
