Hello, I’m Eunice Learmont, the proud leader of Sterling Cotswold Virtual Lunch. Our diverse group meets every other Friday for a relaxed lunch and inspiring conversations to share opportunities.
As well as being the group leader, I hold the Wills & Estate Planning seat.
Sterling Networks is a fabulous community of like-minded business professionals who are keen to support each other, start conversations and give valuable introductions. Visit us for a warm welcome to find out how our members can help you grow your business.
I look forward to seeing you soon.
The Cotswold Virtual Lunch is held every other Friday Lunchtime on Zoom.
You will receive zoom meeting details once you book on and confirmed by our Group Leader.
Meeting begins with a tea, coffee, water or juice and 15 minutes’ informal networking.
Traditional cooked lunch, or depending on location, a vegetarian option and buffet
60-second round. This is an opportunity for each member and guest to introduce themselves and their business, defining the kinds of referrals and any particular introductions they currently seek.

This is the crucial part of our meetings and a great opportunity to connect and arrange your 'one to one' appointments with businesses you would like to know more about. At the same time a chance to refill your drinks.
A great platform, where members describe their business more fully. Provides an opportunity for the group to understand the nature and direction of your business. Brilliant for new projects and new ideas. Invaluable!
The ‘activity round’ comes next. Members and guests are invited to summarise referrals made and received, give thanks to other members and guests, describe any ‘one-to-one’ meetings held outside the breakfast meeting and share any latest news.
Meeting closes, but you’re welcome to stay on for extra networking and discussions.

We encourage you to attend at least twice to make sure that Sterling is right for you. You can visit more than one group following your first visit - all we ask is you call Sterling HQ to check that there is no clash of industry category.
Single seat category means that we only allow one person from each industry sector in each group. In some groups, professionals from similar industries collaborate and gain mutual benefit.
Your initial visit is just £16.66+VAT for our physical meetings and £7.99+VAT for our virtual meetings.
Annual membership is £359.00+VAT and then you will pay a monthly meeting fee of £33.32+VAT for a physical meeting and £12.49+VAT for our virtual groups which is paid by DD to cover the meeting fees.
There may be other Sterling groups in your area that have your industry category available and do speak to the group leader or Sterling HQ. Often businesses can collaborate even when they may, on first sight, seem to be in the same industry.
