David launched the Sterling Worcester Lunch in 2016 and the group has gone from strength to strength since day one. The Friday lunchtime meeting provides a relaxed professional and inspiring end to the business week where members and visitors network and support each other to grow their business. With a diverse range of members, David's group provides access to a wide range of referrals for businesses across all sectors.
David is the Managing Director of The Vehicle Network and has worked in the automotive industry for many years. He has the contacts to gain access to every vehicle manufacturer in the UK Market - which means he can quote for and supply any make and model of new car or van currently in production.
David can also access almost every finance provider in the UK and is not tied to particular car dealers, suppliers, or finance providers, meaning that he can search for what you need from anywhere and anyone, nationwide. He is more than happy to take on the challenge to beat any offer supplied by a dealer or other provider.
"Networking with Sterling is vital to my business and I really enjoy leading the Worcester Lunchtime Group. I look forward to seeing you soon" - David Middletoninfo@thevehiclenetwork.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 Worcester Lunch agenda includes a buffet lunch at Sixways Stadium, 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.
