Connect and Chat - Roundtable Mastermind


Do you run a small business? Do you want to connect with other business owners, share your experience, and mastermind business challenges together? Whether you've been in business for years or are just starting out, join us for coffee, tea, networking, and a roundtable chat about marketing and growing your business. Each month we feature a different theme related to small business ownership. Come with a story to tell. We'd love to hear about your business values, and your ideal clients. Find out how other businesses are building relationships with their clients. Pick up new ideas to boost long-term client retention, share referrals, and exchange business cards. Spaces for this popular event are limited. Reserve your spot early to avoid disappointment! There is parking on the street (pay $2 at the kiosk for the 2 hours)

Whether you've been in business for years or are just starting out, drop in to Flatbread Company from 6-9pm and join us for casual networking themed around authenticity in business. **Please note the NEW location.*** Come prepared to share your story - not just to hear people pitch at you!

Have lunch, learn something new, and network to grow your business! *Lunch is not included in the event fee, you can purchase it at the venue. This month’s speakers are yet to be announced. Please check back for an update! Come Lunch & Learn! Interested in speaking at a future lunch and learn? Contact us about your topic – which must have real content that adds value to our audience, though you are welcome to promote your business at the end.
