What we're about
Networking gets results.
The formal program is 1 hour, however, we encourage the participants to schedule 2 hours. You should plan to come at 10 :30 AM sharp for registration and openly network before the formal program and remain 15-30 minutes after the formal program and openly network with the other participants, and guest speaker now that you know what they do, what they offer and what they are looking for.
During the formal program, every participant gets "1-2 Minute(s) @ the Mike" - a chance to introduce themselves to all other business owners/ representatives. After introductions we have a 15 minute talk/ presentation from a "Resident Speaker", to tell us more about their business. The Resident Speaker is drawn from the participants at the previous month's Meetup.
Occasionally, we might get a 15 minute talk/ presentation from a "Featured Speaker" who is invited because they have to offer expertise in an area that business owners, entrepreneurs and sales people could use to enhance the quality of their business or of their lives. They may be business world celebrities, extremely successful business owners, published authors or owners of a business or service that every participant can benefit from.
Depending on the number of the participants, we may go around again and answer the "Question of the Month" and also see if there are any Announcements, Event heads-ups and Testimonials from the members.
Come out and network, in person, with us, once a month (second or third Wednesday/ Thursday of the month* - alternating) and you could meet 10 - 20+ new like-minded entrepreneurs. Promote your business, share your knowledge, inspire and support others like you and hopefully even do deals!
The Fortune is in the Followup! Participants have time a whole month to followup with all other attendees, schedule a coffee or followup meeting, learn more about each other, about each other's business and see if there is potential to help each other to grow your businesses.
* Who should join: Are you a business owner or a business representative that wants to expand their sphere of influence, referral network and meet new people every month? You love coming out, shake hands, get to know like and trust the other members? We want you!
* Why should members join: We provide excellent value for the time you spend with us. At every meeting we have a Resident Speaker providing first hand value to the attendees. At some meetings we invite an outside Featured Speaker share an education moment with us. If you take only one nugget from the Resident Speaker's or Featured Speaker's presentation and use it to increase your business in the following months, is it worth it to you?
* What can members expect out of the group: A positive like-minded business owners community, all working together to give value, referrals and opportunity.
