Our second meeting! Meet new members and continue getting to know those you met the previous month.
At our first meeting, we decided that all our main monthly meetings will be held online.
This is for reasons of travel and fitting everything in our busy schedules, regardless of covid stuff. We\’ll add some in-person events later in the year (maybe every other month).
Each month will have a topic. At the start of the meeting we\’ll introduce ourselves and share something related to the topic, then we\’ll have a speaker on that topic and a Q&A session with them.
In our April meeting we\’ll discuss what topics we\’d like speakers for, and then from May we\’ll have a speaker/presentation/workshop/something like that every month.
It can be quite lonely, running your own business, so your local WiRE Network is here for support, understanding, advice, and inspiration.
If your impression of networking is a conference room breakfast with men in grey suits trying to foist their business cards on you, then breathe a sigh of relief – you won’t get that with WiRE!
Yes, we encourage you to swap contact details and tell people about what you do. But we also encourage you to ask for things you need, recommend each other, invite friends to join us, and help us to create the network that everyone wants to go to!
Network Leaders are volunteers with their own businesses to run, so we’re delighted for your input and assistance with making West Devon WiRE the best it can be.
Look forward to seeing you there!
Our online meetings are free, and non-members can attend twice before they are contacted to join WiRE. You do need to book in advance. On the morning of each meeting I\’ll email the video chat link to everyone who\’s booked.
If you have any questions about any of this, or anything else to do with WiRE, give me a shout – firstname.lastname@example.org
