What are Members’ Meetings?
Every month we host a separate Members’ Meeting in each County. These relaxed, positive and friendly networking events feature either an educational workshop from an expert Guest Speaker or an interactive team-building exercise.
These meetings are a place for you to come together with the other members, share business advice/support, increase your reach, learn from our expert Guest Speakers, expand your network and build on any existing business connections. Each meeting includes:
- Either an educational workshop hosted by an expert Guest Speaker OR an interactive and informal team-building exercise encouraging the formation of organic business and personal connections between attendees.
- The chance to introduce yourself and your business to the group.
- Complimentary tea, coffee and pastries.
- Multiple networking opportunities.
- A 10-minute ‘Member in the Circle’ speaking slot.
- The opportunity to stay accountable for your goals by setting an accountability with us at the end of the meeting. We’ll check in with you at the next month’s meeting to see how you got on!
Our Member’s Meetings are also a safe place for you to voice any problems or concerns you may have. These concerns will then be discussed by the group who offer honest, strategic feedback to help you to move forward and grow faster.
Non-members are permitted to attend just one Members’ Meeting as a guest before signing up. They can do this by registering for their desired meeting on Eventbrite and selecting the ‘Free Event Pass’ option at the checkout.
