Welcome all. Pretty excited to have our second Meetup for the MetroWest Marketing Group. We've had some new members join and we are 25+ strong - woo hoo!
For this MeetUp we're heading to Newton to a place called The Biltmore Bar & Grille - voted a "Best of Boston 2012" - I have never been there but it looks like a pretty fun place.
For our first MeetUp we talked a good amount of "where we started" and "how we got into marketing" - it's always great to hear these stories so thanks again to those who made it out. For this MeetUp I'm going to suggest that everyone come ready to talk about a "marketing challenge" they've recently faced - more of an ice breaker conversation than a mandate. If we had the MeetUp tonight mine would probably be focused on the fact that more and more of my clients are coming to me for both marketing and IT consulting - is this my new normal???
Also in this MeetUp I'd like to get some ideas from the members about potential upcoming topics/themes/workshops as well as potential locations.
Hope you all can make it - I'd like to get the location a head count a few days in advance so they can provide us a dedicated area, but right now the plan is to sit in the bar rather than the restaurant.
Also, if you know other "marketing people" that you think might make sense for our group please feel free to share.
See you in a few weeks - hopefully it is much cooler by then!
