What you get

“When you focus on connection first, everything falls in to place”. Vishen Lakhiani

The most comprehensive on-line networking anywhere! 

We’ve always been great at on-line networking and the pandemic has given us even more reasons to develop powerful ways to build great relationships on-line.

During the Summer we’re holding Coffee Break calls on Zoom every Tuesday and Thursday 10.00 – 10.30am. There’s no agenda, just a friendly chat and a chance to connect with other business owners.
“Every call I’ve attended has had useful takeaways, in terms of new knowledge, thought provoking ideas and building new friendships – as well as being a lot of fun!”

“I didn’t join in last week as I was feeling a bit flat. Kicked myself later on when I remembered that was exactly the reason to dial in! I always leave feeling better and smiling!”
“These calls lift my spirits and keep me inspired and motivated all week. The sense of connection and knowing we’re not in this on our own is really valuable.”

Network on LinkedIn 

Every Monday and Friday network in our LinkedIn Group connect with over 700 business owners and talk about what you and they are planning for the week and what you achieved. The more you chat with other members the stronger the connections you build!

The Six Step Programme

Running a small business means we have to master six basic components:
Time and Money, Sales and Marketing, Processes and Planning.
This very comprehensive course is adapted from Ann Hawkins highly acclaimed “Work Smart Not Hard” programme.
Premium members can access the videos and workbooks to work through in their own time with the option of setting up accountability calls to help you apply what you’ve learned to your own business.

Marketing is a team sport! 

Marketing is one of the most important activities for small businesses but one that so many find difficult.  Developing your own marketing message is a bit like cutting our own hair: in theory, we have the skills, we just lack the perspective. A small tweak in perspective can often make a big difference in revenue.

Good conversations and relationships are the keys to business success and Drive members excel in building  trusted relationships every day of the week. These relationships rapidly become the key capital of your business. It’s networking at a very different level.

When you equip others to tell your story it means they can open doors for you and become more valuable themselves by providing good solutions for their network – and of course, you can do the same.

The Art of Subtle Networking 

Our members have developed their own unique style of networking. By really getting to know each other as people, by taking time to appreciate each others values, talents and expertise, they happily do business together and recommend and refer each other to clients.

No-one ever tries to sell to each other. Everyone helps each other just because they can, and not with any view to getting something in return. It’s very subtle but it works. If traditional networking makes you uncomfortable, you’ll feel at home here!

“I wanted to send a big “thank you” to you, once again, for the support you have given me in my business. A conversation in the Drive Group led to my finding a whole new market and creating a whole new product! Thank you SO much for the opportunities you are providing for me and for so many people. I am really grateful and very appreciative.” Rosalind Bubb.
