This is a 2-pronged networking group – a once/month exclusive mastermind group – invite-only. And a once/month networking social open to all.

Meetings begin promptly at 8:30. It’s best to show up a few minutes early for relationship building.
A co-founder will open the meeting, introduces Round Table Topic perhaps we’ll do featured speakers on occasion, but our first meeting was fast paced intros and exchanges of marketing ideas — it was hard to squeeze in discussion on our Social Event within the hour timeframe.
Introductions: Each member gives their 30 – 60 second elevator speech. New members are encouraged to go in more depth and questions from veteran members are fielded.
Featured speaker: (We’re currently putting this on hold until we get our basic agenda down). Each week a different member gives a 10-minute presentation to provide deeper insight into their industry and niche, or benefit the members in some other way.
Round Table Topic: We will go around the table and ask for each member’s unique insight into the particular sales/marketing topic. This session may also consist of weekly goal setting and accountability reporting.
Social Event discussion: Our goal is to host a monthly (or bi-monthly… still deciding) social networking event that we use for business development purposes. We should strategize as to how to get our target audiences to attend. Since we’re all professional services, our client/prospect lists overlap a lot – simply posting an invite to our socials on our social media channels should be a giant step in the right direction.
Close meeting with inspirational message (volunteers).
* This networking group is not anti-competition within industries (we allow multiple members from the same industry). Rather, we’ll let the more active member(s) benefit from the groups recommendations and relationship building.
Networking Social. Open to all
Time: 3rd Tuesday of the month – 6:00pm-8:00pm
Dues: There is no charge
The networking social is simply an avenue for us to invite people of our choosing to create a higher quality lead generating environment. It will evolve as the core members see fit.
