Welcome! My name is Alan Clark and I am delighted to welcome and support you as group leader of Worcester Rapids Breakfast Meeting.
We meet very other Wednesday at the fantastic Sixways Stadium, and our fledgling group is all about creating an inclusive, dynamic and inspiring experience whilst supporting each other and business creation.
I hold the business coaching seat and I am the owner of Exponential Coaching Ltd. My purpose is all about bringing powerful transformational leadership and business coaching to support business leaders and their teams unleashing both individual performance and business performance. A potent double act!
My biggest insight that I can share with you about my networking experience is the more you put into building relationships the more you will get out of networking. Simple but true!! The people centred values of Sterling plus the structure of our meetings really do support you in building meaningful relationships quickly, so why not come along and experience this simple truth for yourself......
Very much looking forward to meeting you !firstname.lastname@example.org
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 Rapids agenda includes a full breakfast 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.
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..
