About Us

Super Connector

Opportunity Maker | Creating value through the power of relationships.

As with all successful businesses, Intro was created in response to a clear need. In this case, our well-connected founder, Carla Harris, was regularly being asked for help with finding the right people and businesses to help others improve or get their businesses off the ground.

Intro connects businesses, makes introductions and helps improve business operations and business development (BD) activities.

Intro has facilitated the creation of several start-ups, helped improve business results, develop teams and helped firms find high-level executives.

Today, Intro incorporates numerous trusted associates that are able to bring expertise, reliability and enthusiasm to the projects they’re engaged on. Learn more.

At Intro we know that finding the right person to talk to about your business or who to approach for a service or partner on a specific project is an important choice not to be taken lightly. That’s why we offer free consultations to walk you through your needs, your timelines, the scope of your goals, and your budget.

GymClub

GymClub is your access to exclusive gyms and spas through a single membership.

  • Do you want to exercise or relax somewhere exclusive?

  • Do you struggle to fit the gym into your schedule or only want to use it occasionally?

  • Do you get bored of using the same gym time and time again and sometimes want access to different facilities?

  • Do you travel frequently meaning it isn’t cost effective for you to commit to a full-time membership with one gym?

GymClub has the solution.

A GymClub membership gives you pay-as-you go access to a range of gyms and spas providing you with choice and flexibility to work-out and relax when and where you want.

Membership starts at only £9 per month and the subscription will automatically renew on a monthly basis. You can stop your subscription whenever you want with no notice period or long-term commitment. Alternatively you may find it easier to simply join for a whole year for £99. Then, when you want to work out or relax you simply pay-as-you-go to use the venue of your choice.
