Each session at Round Robin Networking looks at helping you promote your business. There is no doubt that it takes time to build relationships and foster good working partnerships. This is a paramount as this puts the foundations in place and paves the way for a successful business relationship.
The meetings are great for getting support from fellow business owners and attendees. There are so many synergies in business that turning any threats into opportunities often arise when counselling the help of others. Everyone brings something to the table and listening to others and finding solutions to your own problems is usually at hand.
You can feel at ease at a Round Robin Networking event as you chat and mingle with other members and visitors. The ethos is simple, create an environment and conditions where you can concentrate on being yourself and getting the most out of networking with others.
At current we have 2 main venues for our meetings with the potential to expand.
Meeting are held once a month.
The meetings will be relaxed at all times but a structure to the meetings will give members opportunities to talk more and express themselves and promote a more business minded theme throughout.
The cost to attend is £5.00 covering some hot drinks and the cost to hire the venue.
Maldon prices are £5.00 which covers unlimited Tea/Coffee and £3.00 to cover the cost of the venue and the other £2.00 for admin of rrnet.co.uk
Ample free parking at rear of venue.
This is the general format of the meetings though because of the informal nature at times these may differ. Additionally, a member will request the 10 minute slot for the next meeting.
10:35 to 11:30 – Introduction by each member to talk about their own businesses
11:30 to 11:40 – 10 Minute Member talk on their business with questions and comments/feedback from other members
11:40 to 12:00 Topic of the Meeting thrown open for general discussion (Topics include, use of social media, attending business events, marketing, other networking, running your own business and other topics as appropriate)
12:00 Close of Meeting/Exchange of business cards.
The members benefits are dependant on the number of times meetings are attended and again this may change and we are flexible within this structure. These are the rules as we see them:
2. Blogs will be written about members once they have attended any 3 meetings in a 6 month period. This will improve SEO for member’s websites.
3. Video content is becoming ever so important for websites now and again once a member has attended 3 meetings in a 6 month period we will do a question and answer session with the member and promote this on the RRNet website and social media. This is a powerful way to promote a business.
Why stay a member beneifts
We recognise that members come and go to different networking Groups and we want to grow our attendees keeping them part of the Round Robin family. This increases the strength of business relationships and helps everyone who attends. If a member fails to attend 3 meetings on the run then their promotions through the RRNET website will be suspended.
We are always looking to introduce other benefits to our regular attendees and will be looking at ways to give as much as we can to our members.

Brentwood Feb Round Robin Report… We had a really good meeting today under our new format, although we had such…
You can really make a difference to your business, if you start 2019 of the right way and get some…
I formed Round Robin Networking back in March 2016 with Danielle Balcombe where we had the idea to create something a little different to networking events that are already out there. Too many Networking Groups seemed to want lots of money for membership and then regular fees for breakfast meetings too. This Group has grown in size slowly and surely for the right reasons in that relationships are built upon trust and through this business takes place. This has happened in so many way and it has been so gratifying to have helped this through running the meetings jointly with Danielle.
My business has benefited in many way and we support many of the businesses that come along and its been a pleasure working with individuals that are more than just business acquaintances. Business associations have formed and others working in collaboration has been great to see.
Round Robin (RR) is a date not to be missed in my monthly agenda. It is a warm, friendly and positive group that is both welcoming to the novice and advanced networker. RR provides a space whereby not only great contacts to grow can be made but nurturing business relationships too. I always come away inspired by the people I meet here.
