NETWORKING + 2PM Activity: BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT SESSION
MONDAY 20 FEBRUARY: BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT SESSION
In these sessions we focus the spotlight on TWO business owners in a very particular way -
These questions mean that not only do we get to know these people's business in more depth, we also get some great insights into the entrepreneurial journey from that person's perspective that will hopefully be useful for all of us.
These are the kind of questions that will be asked:
How did you end up doing what you do?
What do you love about your business?
What service are you really providing?
What is the biggest challenge you currently face?
What three things have you learned that you'd like to pass onto others?
From this type of questioning, we can all not only find out about the business of the person under the spotlight, but learn more about what running your own business really involves, and apply this to our own situation.
MONDAY 20 MARCH: BUSINESS MASTERMINDING
Need some advice about some aspect of your business? Perhaps you could do with some marketing tips, help with social media, your business strategy, or your accounts? Or are you planning a new project that you’d like to get some external feedback on?
Even if everything is going really well in your business, external feedback is always valuable, and other small business owners can often be the best people to give it.
Whatever your plans or challenges, masterminding is a great way to get helpful advice and suggestions from your peers in a supportive, friendly environment. Who knows -
How Masterminding Works
SBN masterminding sessions last about 30-
We divide ourselves up into groups of about four people, and each person gets around seven to ten minutes to share a challenge (large or small) with the other three members in the group, who then offer advice and suggestions about that challenge. After seven minutes, we move onto the next person.
This can be a surprisingly effective way of solving challenges and learning from other people’s experiences. It also gives us an opportunity to get to know the other members of the group and their businesses in more depth, often resulting in more customers, interesting leads, new collaborations, ways we can help each other etc.
Our experience has been that whenever our meeting attendees try masterminding they are converted from sceptic to total enthusiast by the end of the session!
