‘I am delighted to be leading the new Evesham breakfast group and see this as a fantastic opportunity to grow a team of likeminded business owners, there to support one another in the local area.
Sterling encourage all their members to get to know each other and build solid, working, business relationships. People are far more likely to refer business to people we know, like and trust. It’s like having multiple mini sales teams looking out for opportunities for you. This is why Networking with Sterling works’.
The Sterling HQ team that support Christine is dedicated to building business network where members build their businesses. We believe that people want do business with people they trust and we work to ensure that our friendly approach to business is demonstrated everywhere you see the Sterling name.

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 Evesham agenda includes a breakfast with coffee or tea, an opportunity to introduce your business, an open networking break 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..
