Most meetings take place over breakfast however this is up to the members. Lunch and early dinner meetings also work. Here is how a breakfast meeting works.
07:30 | Open networking
Catch up with your fellow members and exchange any referrals, leads, tips or recommendations (and discuss sports results, kids, pets, the economy in Japan – anything you like).
07:45 | Welcome/champion update
Your opportunity to position and promote your business to the network.
07:47 | Positioning statements
This is an insight into you, and your business. It is not designed to be a straight sales pitch and not changes every week.
08:05 | Resource Discussion
The Champion facilitates the weeks coaching/education. Open discussions help the learning process and we encourage constructive questions and debate.
08:45 | Board session (optional)
This is where the network discusses one or two pertinent member issues or challenges, and brainstorm potential solutions or alternatives. The outcome can be worth thousands of dollars to your business.
09:00 | Meeting Close

If you charge for the activities that you execute then you are in the service business. If you charge for the time the customer spends with you then you are...
A fabulous sunny morning at Beautiful Balmoral Beach. Our topic today was Mindfulness, what does it mean, and how can it enhance our work/business. Andrew Hurrell surprised us with a box of Lindt chocolates, and proceeded to guide us through an exercise in Mindful Eating – feel the chocolate in your hand, smell it, take a bite, let it melt on your tougue, feel the texture, the taste……….you get the picture??

Bright sunny morning at Balmoral for the Converge meeting.
The discussion was around goals and how effective (and potentially detrimental) they can be. We decided that a focus might work better. What are the key things that the business needs to focus on to achieve the desired outcomes over the next 6 months.
Feedback was that it gave better clarity about the ‘what to do’ as well as the ‘what we want to achieve’
In the midst of discussion on goals, opportunities and challenges for the year ahead.
Room at the table for a few more?????
