Welcome to TeamUP networking. This group is meant to be a professional development and business education function. This group is meant for business owners and business service professionals looking to make genuine connections, master mind, and experience a "business 201" style education.
What is "business 201"? It is the crux of our group - to teach business owners and professionals things they never thought about in business and keep them up to date with what is interesting in the business world. We will learn from different industries different facets of their business that isn't normally discussed in a normal networking group and take a deeper dive into interesting problems and solutions.
Each week we will have 3 short length speakers, covering news and notes of their industries.
Each week we will have 1 long length speaker who will cover in depth coverage of their industry and interesting utilities for business owners.
Finally, there will be a short mastermind session at the end of the meeting.
The meeting is meant to last only 60 minutes long, or shorter as needed. There will be 30 minutes of optional networking available afterwards for those who wish to stick around and get to know each other better.
