Do you have what it takes to start a Drive Group?
We’re looking for people who want to bring a fresh approach to networking to head up Drive groups in their own area.
You’ll already be running a successful business and looking for a way to raise your profile by running your own networking group.
You’ll understand the value of networking to growing a business,
You’ll prefer collaboration over competition,
You’ll value connections over leads,
You’ll prefer conversations over pitches.
More than anything you’ll be comfortable with informality, a lack of ritual and people having fun being themselves, with no pretence.

Her: “You don’t enjoy networking, do you?”
Me: “Yup. I go to DRIVE meetings where you meet actual human beings.”
What will Drive give you?
You’ll have local autonomy to run your group the way you and your members like, plus all the benefits of being part of a national organisation – the best of both worlds!
We take care of all the hassle of branding, marketing, PR, admin, website and social media, and you get systems that work without you having to invest time, money or effort in them.
Within this framework, you get to run the sort of group that suits you.
You can shine as the leader, build your own reputation and your own business.
You can recruit partners who can share the workload and we’ll help you to recruit and train them.
You’ll be an important part of a national network with a national as well as a local profile and you’ll be working with people who really want you to succeed.
In addition you’ll get the power of a central organisation that provides all the admin for collecting membership fees, sending renewal reminders, keeping records, providing terms and conditions of membership, building a network of groups, creating newsletters and a powerful on-line presence and branding.
Together, we all become more successful – its a win:win!
The only rules we have are that there are no restrictions on who can join, there will be no forced referrals and no elevator pitches.
