I'm Neil Davis and I am the MD for Sterling Networks. We already run a very successful Swindon breakfast group, and due to demand for an alternative time to attend we are now launching our latest group which will be the Swindon Lunch group.
Andy Brackenbury is the Sterling General Manager and is based in Swindon, so very well placed to oversee this latest addition to the Sterling brand.
Like all new networking groups we already have a decent range of businesses that are already set to attend and when they are happy, to subsequently join Sterling.
We would love to see you at our Swindon meeting! This is a brilliant business enviroment for our new members and those existing members interested in a second seat, and this meeting will be at the Swindon Jurys Inn, opening on April 24th and is the meeting runs between 12 - 2pm.
As always, our aim is to ensure that both members and visitors get as much as possible out of our networking meetings as possible, by making new contacts and generating referrals, utilising the very best busy protocal and above all acting with Integrity.
Our latest independent and totally anonymous survey of our members completed in January 2019 revealed that 100% of Sterling members would recomend Sterling to other business contacts, which is something that we are immensly proud of.
We very much look forward to seeing and meeting you on the 24th April, and you are assured of a very warm welcome.
Neil, Sterling MD
"I am really looking forward to helping to grow this latest Sterling group, and it is really pleasing to see that Swindon has alternative networking options" Andy Brackenbury - Sterling General ManagerAndy@sterlingnetworks.co.uk
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.
