Can’t make it but need to network?

You can network with us via the Insiders confidential mastermind group. Look out for the networking post on the day of the event and add your links, “who it would be good to meet” and events. Business owners and professionals chat for days after the event, sharing links, promotion and ideas. Talking about the goals they set and the actions they will do to achieve them.

Face to face…

We are your business family, so we aim to meet up with our members ad hoc around the UK when it fits your busy diary. Our next 2 face to face events are up North mid October and then back to East Anglia for networking late October. iThese are free to members. Just purchase your own refreshments.

These are relaxed, everyone talks about their business and sales are made!

Add your thoughts to the Insiders so we can add more events!

These events are exclusively hosted to Insiders so arrangements are made through the confidential mastermind group.
