The benefits of being part of a community

There are so many reasons why we started Concept North, but we’d say the one that stands out from all the rest is our strong belief in promoting community over competition.

Here are five reasons why we feel being part of a community is important for your business or career.


When you surround yourself with a support network you can all help each other with a little encouragement or advice. We all know there can be times when you feel like hitting your head against a brick wall and not sure how to deal with a situation. If you have a group of people you can turn to for that much needed second opinion or to help you see things from a different perspective, it can help take the pressure off.


It’s always harder to maker new friendships as you get older, so if you get involved in activities and community events linked to your interests or industry, you can create new connections that can turn into long lasting friendships.

If you start to build those relationships within your community, you may come across an exciting business or job opportunity that you won’t have come across otherwise. You know what they say… people do business with people they like, know and trust and if you hide behind your computer screen and don’t meet people in real life, you’ll never get to nurture those relationships that may lead to future opportunities.


When you start to speak with other like-minded people you can learn so much from each other and be inspired by their stories and journeys. We love speaking to other business people and hearing about how they have overcome challenges and got to where they are today. You come away feeling motivated, inspired and buzzing to push forward with your own goals!

We are social animals and being part of a community has social aspects that can be lots of fun! When you’re having fun, you are creating memories and experiences that you will always remember, so at Concept North keeping things relaxed, informal and fun is at the heart of what we do.
