Launch night! Mastermind and Networking Event

A new approach to networking

Hey guys Our new group is live!

The Interesting Business Club launches on 27th June at an incredible new venue on Old Street called "Timberyard". This venue has been set up for freelancers and the self employed to work from. It is an great creative space where you can work from. It has iPads, a range of amazing teas and coffees, serves great food and also has an alcohol license!

I have spent a lot of time researching networking events and I have put together a new event that will hopefully make attending a highly productive use of your time. When researching networking events I found that people had several issues and complaint that included; people trying to sell them stuff all the time, not meeting the right people, not getting the help they were looking for, being stuck with people they didn't want to speak with, being poorly organised and generally a waste of time.

I have put together a new structure that has addressed these issues.

The Mastermind and Networking System

6:00 - Event starts

6:00 - 6:30 Open Networking

6:30 - 7:30 Structured Mastermind session

7:30 - 8:30 Open Networking

After 8:30 we will probably head to a bar over the road to carry on the fun

So what is the Mastermind Session?

It works like this, at 6:30 everyone will sit at a table (it will be random, no silly name tags) and you will be groups of 4.

When the whistle goes, one person from the table will give a 5 minute oversight of their business to the other 3 people on the table. This person will also tell the others what current problems and challenges they face, or something they want to achieve.

Then for 10 minutes, the other 3 people will give their help, advice and possible resources to this person. I can not explain just how powerful masterminding is in helping to resolve issues and achieve business goals.

It is then the turn of the next person and this process is repeated will all the people sat at the table. I will be hosting the event and I will make sure that everyone sticks to the times and that every single people who attends leaves with some fantastic new ideas, resources and connections.

After the Mastermind Session we will have more open networking where you can speak to other members and make even more connections. This will be low pressured and not sales based. This is an opportunity to meet and connect, not to just generate leads. People who are found to be using the group to just generate leads and sales will be removed from the group.

As an extra bonus, I will allow each member to make an offer to the rest of the group. I will then send this out as a group email after the event.

If you have never been networking before then I assure you this is a great place to start. It doesn't matter on your business type or experience, all are welcome.

I look forward to seeing you there Matt Kendall

    Sounds great but as I don't have a business I don't want to waste people's time by attending.

    I think this format could be applied in many ways to other business related subjects with some meetups focuses on certain business sectors.

  • Matt K.

    Sorry for the formatting. I will get it sorted ASAP.
