Group leader: alan kennedy

Hello, I'm Alan Kennedy and very proud to be the leader of the first Sterling Group in Oxford and Director Consultant for the Oxfordshire area. Sterling meet at great venues and attract a wide range of members who always impress me with their enthusiasm, support for each other and the number of referrals shared. It is relaxed networking at its very best!

As well as leading the group, as a qualified Chartered Account, I hold the accountancy & business advisory seat and benefit from regular referrals to my own business. Outside work I enjoy keeping active physically & mentally on the Badminton court, the rowing machine and the chess board when not spending time with my wife, children and grandchildren. 

I look forward to meeting you soon!

A format that works

The Sterling Oxford Networking format will provide a structured agenda that is facilitated by a group leader who ensures every member gets great value from the meeting. The agenda includes a breakfast, an opportunity to introduce your business, an open networking break where we enourage the booking of 1-2-1 meetings and a member showcase. 

6:45am

Meeting begins with a tea, coffee, water or juice and 15 minutes’ informal networking.

7:00am

 Breakfast: Traditional cooked breakfast, or depending on location a vegetarian option plus pastries or fruit. 

7:10am

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. 

7:45am

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. 

7:55am

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! 

8:10am

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.  

8:30am

Meeting closes, but you’re welcome to stay on for extra networking and discussions..
