On the day

What to expect?

Southend Peers meets every Thursday morning at The Arlington Ballroom, Chalkwell (LINK) from 6.45am.

Our format is similar to other networking groups you may have visited, but it is important to mention that we have more fun! Each week, members have the opportunity to deliver a 60-second message to the group, followed but a nominated member presenting a 10-minute introduction to themselves and their business.

6.45am – Welcome Tea, Coffee and Juice (Open Networking)
7.00am – Breakfast is served
7.30am – 60 Second Round
8.00am – 10 Minute Presentation
8.30am – Referral Round

The Dreaded ‘60 Second Round’

Whether you’ve prepared your speech, or wing-it – don’t over think it! 60 seconds can seem an eternity, but you would have been buzzed before you know it. Try to think of a concise message, or specific offer you may be running.

The Even More Dreaded ’10 Minute Presentation’

Depending on when you join, you’ll have listened to a number of other presentations.

Again, 10 minutes can seem a long time – but its 10 minutes to tell your potential customers how you arrived at that specific moment in time. Talk about your experience, your family / friends, your working history. Bring props, bring a PowerPoint presentation, sing us a song – make it memorable!

Breakout Groups

Occasionally we split into smaller breakout groups, to discuss business challenges and opportunities, and how they affect our respective businesses. Recent topics have included:

  • If money was no object, name the one investment you would make in your business.
  • If you had the opportunity to invite 4 people for breakfast, who would it be, and why?
  • Share some benefits you have personally experienced through business networking.
  • How has Brexit affected your business?

Building Relationships

It is a well-known fact that ‘people buy from people’. Our group encourages relationships to blossom into successful business.
