“Business support, share ideas, and help each other grow.“
Join us for something aimed just at you.
Basingstoke is a great town. There's lots going on. But, if you're an established business owner running a £500k - £5m business, there seems to be a gap.
It can be long hours, and not much 'support' running your own company. As the saying goes, "It can be lonely at the top". But, sometimes, it's just a bit "chaotic in the middle".
You probably don't want to go to the micro-business orientated networking events. Maybe, you feel the Chamber of Commerce events and training sessions are a bit too 'generic' (or don't really cover North Hampshire enough)?
And you defintely don't want to go to those events where it's full of digital agencies and accountants all 'selling' their wares.
Maybe (and we think you might) you'd like to meet similar sized local business owners, who you can openly discuss your concerns, ideas and challenges with. A small community where you can learn new things, share ideas and mutually support each other in our business journeys.
The idea is to create connections and community. Ooba are just a facilitator to help the group gain momentum.
- Each meeting starts at 6pm and kicks-off properly at 7pm.
- At 7pm, we'll do some formal introductions and get a feel of who's in the room, why each person is here - so everyone feels welcome and involved.
- Then, there will then be a short presentation covering a pertinent topic. As the group is new, Ooba will kick things off with content from our business and marketing training courses (there will be no 'sell' - I promise). As the group grows, we can leverage the knowledge in the room, as well as bring in 3rd parties to help share knowledge and insight. We can then adapt the topics to meet the needs of the group.
- After that, we can open the room up for discussion, people can share ideas and start shaping the conversation.
