2pm Business Spotlight Sessions
Two business owners get the chance to put themselves under the spotlight for 15 minutes apiece. We ask them questions about their their experience of running their business, what they’ve learned, the challenges they’ve faced, what they love about their business etc etc. This offers us the opportunity to not only take a much more in depth look at this particular business than is possible in a normal networking scenario, but also to get some insights into the entrepreneurial experience that can be valuable for all of us.
Our meetings are informal and friendly, and open to experienced networkers and ‘newbies’ alike. There is no need to book or to tell us you’re coming -
What Is The One Minute Go Round?
This is your chance to promote your business to the other attendees. You have up to a minute in which to do this. It’s not long, so you might want to spend a little time beforehand thinking about what you want to say.
Don’t worry if you’ve never done this before. Like we say, we’re a very friendly and informal group, so if you would prefer to just sit and listen the first time you come, that’s fine.
