I liked the volume of people to network with. I attended with a view to becoming a member of, and supplier to, the mastermind group. I took away a lot of business opportunities in fairness, and contacts, people I hadn't met before, and I've become a member of the group.

For me it was the first time at one of these events, and my introduction to the Business Mastermind Group. I think what stood out was the willingness of everyone to help each other, the openness and the keenness to share. We're part of the Mastermind Group but I'm relatively new to the organisation so from my perspective I wanted to find out what it was about, and if there was any value to being a part of it. I'm pleased to say yes, I do believe there is significant value for us. I came away with great introductions, and some of the presentations were quite thought provoking in terms of 'how do we incorporate that into our business?'.

I was motivated to go because it was Burgis & Bullock who were putting the event on and I saw Business Mastermind so I thought it would be an opportunity to brainstorm and pick up some good information for my business. I was straight on to my PA to pull out all our insurance policies and risk assessments so we could review them all to ensure we are properly up to date and covered. I learnt a lot.

I liked the content. It was titled 'It'll never happen to me' and was all about risk, which happens to be my background from my PAYE years. It's not something I would have gone to specifically but it was a good catch up and particularly useful to the small business owners in the room. The big learn was that, of course, whatever we think we're doing, we're never doing enough. I needed to talk to Sean. That was my spec intention. I'd been to one of the previous meetings and hadn't necessarily got the answers I needed regarding the structure and the focus of the Mastermind group itself. I've had a chat with one of the members we know very well, Jackie Frost, and she recommended that we went to the next meeting to catch up with Sean, which we did. I got clarity on what the focus is, because it was Steve Darnell who had presented the group as being like a while new opportunity to acquire new opportunities to win new customers. In fact the group itself has an element of that attached to it but it's not its current focus right now which I suspect is more to do with the fact that it's still building. So I was after an idea of what return I could expect and numbers of opportunities, when in fact there's far more organisation and structuring going on, which is important, but not to me right now as I'm already a member of another mastermind group.

The thing that interested me was that, in terms of some of the presenters and some of the others that were there, they were of a high quality, with a number of people speaking on different things. I'm not just talking about the mastermind membership who brought a few things to the table, that's a standard issue as far as I'm concerned, but it was the others that were there, and some of the members who did not speak, I found had a particularly interesting story about the unique ways they were dealing with their business and how they were packaging things up for the benefit of their clients. I liked that and I'm talking to a couple of people who were significantly connected to the others. That interested me because it wasn't a race to the bottom. In actual fact it was more of an amalgamation of the top. We were bringing a senior partner of a reasonable sized country practice over from Northern Ireland to have the opportunity to see a mastermind group in action and to talk to some of the stake holders that might be involved. What I liked about that was that they were prepared to tell the story; They weren't holding back punches, but the point was that the story was a good story that they were delivering and it was a worthwhile story. They were all attending because they could see a benefit, and that message comes across so much more when it's a stake holder saying it rather than me trying to sell the concept of "lets do one of these in Northern Ireland". It went very well and we' have already a couple more meetings set up in Northern Ireland to move everything on. It's a journey that the accountant was on. My expectation was that when he went across it could be a consolidation rather than him going even further in the journey, but no, he grasped the opportunity and has now moved on, and he has gone further, so that pleased me. That, in essence, came from the discussion we had with stakeholders/group members.

Overall a very good event which gave much stronger networking connections than conventional networking. A great mix of people there, good presenters and well organised. I would recommend any business owner to attend one of these events.

I think the format of the event was particularly exceptional, very much different to other events I've been to; Moslty in the way that the host got people to interact with each other to start with. I was attending the event because of an invite by one of the mastermind group members. Largely it was with a view to becoming part of that mastermind group.

The event had good attendance and good speakers: They were interesting and presented in a good way. I was there to observe to see if we want to become a member. It was really interesting. I don't think many people have the contingency plans that the speakers were talking about. I think it was interesting and the networking by colours was good as well; It was better than the usual mingling around.
