Guests and new members welcome in categories not already represented - do come along and join us on a completely no obligation basis!
The one member per business category keeps the group tight knit and helps to forge strong links.
Members are expected to attend regularly
Particularly because this is a one member per category group we do ask for regular attendance, referrals and recommendations from members.
To keep ideas and discussion fresh and flowing and to introduce new contacts and connections, members are also encouraged to bring guests both on a regular basis and especially to our very popular “Open Evenings”.
Guests are also welcome to apply directly to attend an upcoming meeting
Meeting format - structure plus informality
Meetings start in and around the bar area to greet each other and introduce guests, then move to the dining room and each person stands to present their “one minute” summary of their business and the kind of referrals and introductions being sought.
After the meal, on a rota basis one member has the opportunity to make a 10 minute presentation.
The final “formal” element of the evening is when each member offers testimonials and referrals to other members. This is done in a friendly low key way, to encourage genuine referrals. Then it’s coffee and back to general networking chat until people begin to leave.
If you like the sound of the way we operate, do get in touch and come along as a guest to our next meeting at the Stanwell House Hotel.
