About Us

Jacqui Frampton

Jacqui FramptonThe Boardroom Network Business Club is owned and operated by Jacqui Frampton.

Throughout a long and challenging career in the Construction Industry, networking had been an integral part of Jacqui’s marketing policy. She says: “We found it a most effective way to establish and maintain contact not only with our clients, but also key to sourcing and building relationships with contacts who became trusted and preferred suppliers.”

Jacqui changed direction a decade ago, deploying her organisational and logistical skills to facilitate Business Networking Events on a full-time basis.

In October 2013 The Boardroom Network launched their first Business Breakfast Club Event in Bournemouth specifically designed, managed and facilitated for Business Owners, Professionals, Senior Managers, Decision-makers and Entrepreneurs in the local business community.

When The Boardroom Network Bournemouth became the preferred choice for Dorset business people, Jacqui brought the winning format to Hampshire, launching The Boardroom Network (Solent) Business Club in 2016. As both continue to gain momentum, she plans further regional expansion and associated events in 2017-18.
