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 Swindon Lunch agenda includes a buffet lunch at Jurys Inn, 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.
Lunch: 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.
Engine Room break. 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.
Member presentation: A great platform, where members describe their business more fully. Privides 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.
