How much does it cost to visit?

A visitor can come FREE for the first time. You will be made to feel welcome. Breakfast and refeshments included. Additional visits are charged at £15 per visit. We're happy for visitors to come back two or three times to get a good feel for whether the group will suit them (and vice versa) and then we'd ask whether you would like to join.

So how much does it cost to join?

There is a one-off joining fee of £50 to show commitment and to help with the admin. There are NO annual fees. Once you're a member, we ask for £50 per month by standing order (paid beginning of each month) to cover the costs of the venue and breakfast plus general running costs.

What happens if I can't make it one Thursday?

This can happen, of course. We expect, where and when possible, for you to arrange a substitute who can speak on your behalf or read out any material prepared for you so that you don't miss out on your sales message being heard. We also expect the courtesy of an email/text/call to the Chairman or another member to pass on your apologies for the absence.

What is my "sixty seconds"?

Each week, every person attending has the opportunity to talk for one minute about their business, and to state what type of business they're looking for. By being specific about the services you offer, and the ideal type of client you are after, will help other members when it comes to referring you.

And the 10 minutes?

We have a weekly rota, where each member has the chance to provide a more detailed insight into their business. This helps the group get a good idea of what we do. The deeper insights achieved with this slightly longer format often leed to referrals. You will also have the opportunity to have your presentation photographed and even filmed for sharing on social media.
