Entrance: FREE, however, only if you find this meeting valuable, I would ask you to contribute whatever you can, I suggest 8 pounds per person, so we can have future meetings. Each meetup we have 1-2 Presentations prepared by fellow entrepreneurs of small/mid-sized companies. Everybody has a business story and we want to learn about yours. You can talk about your business journey, the things that you will repeat and the things that if given a second chance you will not. The goal is to inspire each other, share skills and knowledge that will help us in growing our small businesses further. After the presentations, there’ll be plenty of time to network and have more in-depth conversations with the presenters in case you’ve further questions. Please RSVP to confirm your attendance. If you would like to present at either our Southampton or Bournemouth meetups, please get in touch with us: [masked] and [masked] AGENDA FOR OUR NEXT MEETUP: 18.45 – 19.00: Arrival and Get Together 19:00 Start of event 19.00 – 19.15: Networking and Integration Exercise. 19:15 – 19:45: Presentation #1: “WHAT IT TAKES TO WIN - an introduction” Presenter: Ash Smith (https://www.linkedin.com/in/ash-smith1/) Description: What does it take to continually deliver championship winning performances, time after time, year after year?

I will present a common exercise that solves this problem and set you up for future support of the changing ideas that you need to implement.
