Hello, I'm Liam Maskell of QBD and the proud leader of the Cheltenham Central Group - the very first group established by Sterling! We meet at a great venue with easy access and have a wide range of members who always impress me with their enthusiasm, support for each other and the number of referrals shared.
As well as the group leader, I hold the Web Design seat and work with a great team of professional web designers and programmers that will create you the perfect website to enable you to reach your goals. But it doesn’t stop there... QBD will provide you with on going support and system updates to make sure your website is always up to date with the latest trends and technologies.
“I’ve been a member of Sterling for a number of years and it’s not only created business relationships it’s created friendships. If you’re looking to create more business opportunities, build a support network and maybe make a few friends along the way, I wouldn’t hesitate to give Sterling a try. I look forward to welcoming you to our great group!”
I look forward to meeting you firstname.lastname@example.org
The Sterling format provides a structured agenda that is facilitated by a group leader who ensures every member gets great value from the meeting. The Cheltenham Central agenda includes a full breakfast , an opportunity to introduce your business, an open networking break where we encourage 1-2-1's to be arranged and a member showcase.
Meeting begins with a tea, coffee, water or juice and 15 minutes’ informal networking.
Breakfast: Traditional cooked breakfast, or depending on location a vegetarian option plus pastries or fruit.
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.
Engine Room break. This is the crucial part of our meetings providing a great opportunity to connect and arrange 'one to one' appointments with businesses you would like to know more about. At the same time a chance to refill your drinks.
Member presentation: This is 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. This is when 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..
