Join the conversation
Welcome to the groei SME Forum – a place where small business owners can connect and join the conversation to help each other grow their business.
The purpose of this forum is to support small business owners with an opportunity to connect with their peers and learn from each other and our panellists to grow sustainable companies.
Now more than ever we need a connection and the right information at the right time. We are committing to running this forum every Friday to provide a rhythm of learning and community.
We have designed the forum so every participant can ask their questions and spend time in small groups online with a speaker and to meet and build relationships with other business owners. The forum is a virtual networking experience and a chance to think about your business challenges.
“I have to be honest I loved the experience, I am happy to do that all over again: ). But this isn’t about me.
Like most of us I have been asked to join a lot of forums, webinars, live interviews etc and I do have to confess I have been quite reticent to do a lot of them simply because in the rush to demonstrate the ability to still be of use in a virtual environment delivery by a lot of hosts has been less than stellar. Having known Tara for some time I expected professionalism which is why I didn’t hesitate to join the panel when she asked. Where the experience really stood out was in the format…from a production viewpoint it was ‘as expected’ and easy to navigate for all participants, but your format is superb. The pace, the ability to give just some ‘chunks’ of information which were easy to absorb, the flow between panellists, into breakout rooms and back to mainstage was really well managed and did not allow for downtime – or dead air – to creep in. I also found the chat and questions from your participants to be on point, which means a better experience for everyone, including the panellists. “
“I have joined this forum for the last 4 or 5 weeks and the quality of the panelist brought on to share value to attendees is just amazing. We’ve had some seriously big names join and deliver incredible advise and counsel to the audience on many different topics, ranging from WFH and dealing with the change, to business innovation, Social Media Marketing, etc… Thank you to the amazing Amanda Cole, Tara Jacobsen and Adam Harris for setting it up, and running it on a weekly basis.”
“Excellent panel of relevant speakers.”
“I got more value from the Forum than I expected to…I’m really appreciative of the advice I received as I like to know what I’m planning to do is the right thing. It was really helpful being able to spend time with speaker and get specific feedback.”
