The Alternative Business Networking Group, Highlands Chapter

Hi! Thanks for your interest in The Alternative Business Networking Group, Highlands Chapter. This group focuses on what it means to truly be a great networker, and building strong connections between  entrepreneurs who have real success and challenges. Here's the agenda for our Meetups:


We begin promptly at 12:30p, every two weeks on Monday. Please arrive by 12:15 to chat with friends and order lunch before we begin- Vita offers some great lunch options! I greatly value your time as an entrepreneur and do my best to run this group in a timely fashion. By arriving early, this will ensure we can start and end on time (1:30), and have a powerful rest of the day.


1. Hold on to your business cards for now. We start the meeting by sharing our 30-second introductions. Give us the basics - your name, what makes you and your business unique, and what type of clients/customers are you looking for.


2. After introductions we then pass our cards around. This is also a great time for any member with a workshop, class, meeting or event to inform the group. We will also discuss specific needs you may have. Do you need a resource of some kind? Are you having difficulties in certain areas of your business? Chances are someone in our group has a solution or can point you in the right direction.
We also want to hear your successes! What's been working for you? How are you generating good business? Have you found a great resource that could benefit others in the group?


3. For the last few minutes we will discuss a specific topic and get real, honest and supportive of the members in the group.



We hope to see you at the next event.

Your resource,
Emily Duke

    That was really a great networking event and what a fabulous group. I felt warm and very comfortable, intrigued by everyone's specific specialty and focus. I was at home and able to be myself within the sphere of broad-based professionals! Thank you for the invite, I'll look forward to connecting with everyone more deeply in the future!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
