The format of our meetings:
Ciarán O’Brien, our current Chairman, initiates the fortnightly Zoom/Teams call, or physical meeting in Malahide, at 7.45am on the chosen Wednesday.
Members arrive on the call, or in person between 7.45 and 8am.
The meeting starts promptly at 8am.
The Chairman welcomes members and guests.
The first item on the agenda is the 10-minute presentation by one of the members (in rotation).
This is followed by a 2 minute presentation by each of the members and guests. As meeting numbers grow, this time may be reduced to, say, 90 seconds, as we insist on finishing on time at 9am.
Each presenter introduces themselves, and their business, tells the group what an ideal referral would be, and details what activity they have had with other group members since the previous meeting.
This normally takes us to 8.50am, when a nominated member delivers a “golden nugget” of their choice.
The meeting finishes promptly at 9am, allowing everyone to get to work and start their day in a positive frame of mind.
Every second meeting (i.e. once a month), we meet at The View – a co-working space that offers private offices, dedicated desks and flexi desks with exquisite views of the Malahide Marina and Lambay Island. Parking is available just outside the venue.
