The Open Marketing Meetup offers peer mentoring around business and marketing challenges that small business owners and entrepreneurs face. We provide safe, confidential space to support and challenge each other in order to grow healthy, sustainable businesses.
MEETUPS + SPECIAL EVENTS
Our meetups run 1 1/2 hours. The meetup format is modeled after the “Lean Coffee (http://agilecoffee.com/leancoffee/)” meeting format, a structured, but agenda-less meeting. Members gather, build an agenda, and begin talking. Conversations are directed and productive, and diverse topics are addressed in a timely and meaningful way. Because the meeting agendas are democratically generated, your voice is heard. Everyone pitches topics or questions. We vote and then spend 5 minutes on each. Setup takes less than 10 minutes and we share asks + offers at the end. Members will also hold each other accountable for action items as part of our supporting each other in moving forward. On occasion we may focus in on specific, relevant topics requested by our members so that we can offer a deeper dive.
We also host networking lunches, power-up learning sessions, informational events AND help promote each other's events.
