What started off as an idea to connect people together has grown to a community of business people who collaborate and work together to make this event possible. The idea is simple we focus on people getting together and sharing business ideas talking about things that matter to small business owners, to independent operators and to business in general.

About Our Group:
We usually get 40 people attending in the last 3 months and looking to grow further allowing others to participate. Many people who have attend have made new friends and expanded their opportunities for business simply by being consistent, confident and confiding. We believe that consequences are coincidently if you create more coincidences then you can accomplish what you want with the people that you want to share it with at the time in your life when you need it the most. This is simply a platform that I am offering the rest is up to you.
The Benefits of this Meetup:
What you choose this meetup to be is entirely your discretion as this is a meetup about you and the people who you share it with. The meetup is very transparent, Group leaders are picked at random normally two to a group, you can vote on the topics that are discussed or offer your own before the meetup and these are picked based on popularity and you can sponsor prizes if you want to get a mention.
For this reason, a lot of people who attend believe it is the best they have been to as the meetup is about them and connecting with others.
This event works because of the people who attend it, believe in networking and building connections. We consider ourselves as part of a business community and tribe bringing together great ideas and insights. We have reserved four tables out the front of this excellent venue. The only thing to bring is yourself if you wish to donate a prize and get a plug for your business please contact myself we accept vouchers, wine, beer and gift baskets which we have a draw to lucky winners. We encourage people to meet up after the event and catch up for coffee. I have designed I.O.U for Coffee Meeting which you can use with your business card to book in another time with your prospective connections.
Upon arrival order your coffee and make yourself known to your group A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H which would be on your name badge and feel free to mingle with others as well.
Be sure to bring lots of Business cards as you will need these to hand out and for others to identify you as we have nametags which accomodate your business cards.
We split into smaller groups to ensure that people get closer interaction and can contribute to the conversations at each of the tables. We have three business topics which have been selected by our members however we welcome new topics and ideas to our networks. We believe that sharing and collaborating is more exciting than working alone and sharing your challenges with strangers is the best way to get help and new ideas to build your business
