How it started
THE CIRCLE CLUB, a private members business club has been in the making since September 2019 but under a different guise, however, due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, an opportunity arose to further develop an existing successful business club, Concannon Connection.
For those of you who don’t know, Concannon Connection was set up by Cherie Concannon who is an exceptional business coach based in Leicestershire looking after top Managing Directors in Leicestershire and beyond. She created Concannon Connection some years ago and has been incredibly successful in building an extensive and exclusive business club. COVID-19 brought about the realisation that Cherie needed to concentrate on the RPO (Raising Performance in Operations) side of her business (increasing productivity in manufacturing) which is growing rapidly, and she subsequently decided to step down. Together, the members decided that this thriving business community which Cherie had nurtured needed to be maintained and the decision was made to re-brand and re-launch as THE CIRCLE CLUB, managed by The House of LM Ltd.
The offering and format of the club has changed, however, Cherie’s key ethos of reciprocity remains the same and will always be at the core value of the club. Even allowing the group to remain together under a new guise shows her personality in abundance.
What will you get?
The aim of THE CIRCLE CLUB is to bring together elite, like-minded business owners with a passion for self-development and a thirst for knowledge. Through our unique networking opportunities, we can enhance your business and raise your individual profile within the community whilst ensuring you are accountable for all your goals. We can help you to be the best version of yourself whilst being mutually reciprocal and holding strong philanthropic values. These key ingredients will help to grow your business, increase your profit and expand your client base.
The Future Vision – why is this important to you joining?
THE CIRCLE CLUB is a member’s club for its members so it’s important to know the future direction of the club and what that means to its patrons.
We will be expanding the club into Nottingham and then Derby by the end of 2021. This expansion will be great for members as their network circles will grow and they can cross refer and engage.
In early 2021 we will be launching THE INNER CIRCLE which will be by invite only to successful driven entrepreneurs in the county where they can have mastermind events and be invited to beautifully curated ‘CIRCLE OF 8’ events where 8 people are invited and handpicked by Alex to facilitate strong connections whilst also having fun. THE INNER CIRCLE will cross over with THE CIRCLE CLUB which will broaden everyone’s network.
By July 2021 we will have launched THE CIRCLE CLUB Foundation. This is very exciting because it will allow all our members (THE INNER CIRCLE and THE CIRCLE CLUB) to achieve their philanthropic and corporate social responsibility desires through a governed, safe, audited gateway to give back to the local community.
THE CIRCLE CLUB has partnered with Leicestershire Live
