The Expert Economy

FRIDAY NETWORKING EVENT

If you’re an Expert Entrepreneur looking to learn how to maximise your business and meet others on the same journey as you, you’re in the right place. Our events are a combination of Networking and Learning designed especially for those who sell their expertise as a service.

Events are held via Zoom

GUARANTEED

30-mins in Breakout Rooms

Be Real. Create Space. Come in Service.

Get together with other like-minded entrepreneurs to share insights and expertise and make new friends.

The road as an Expert Entrepreneur is never easy and often we appear as the ‘odd one out’ amongst our family and friends. It can often be hard for us to find the support we need, especially when the general marketing principles do not apply.

Our networking event is designed to give you the support and momentum you need to explore and build your business. We meet virtually, via Zoom, for 90-minute on a Friday lunchtime once a fortnight.

We’ve chosen Friday lunchtime because if you were working with a team, you’d probably be celebrating the end of your week by going out for lunch – and thats the feeling we want to create. This is your chance to reflect on your week, share your progress with others who understand how momentous your accomplishments are, and glean new learning you can take with you into the weekend to start your Monday fresh and bright.

Guaranteed 30mins in breakout rooms

A big thank you to Naomi for putting on this day. It reminded me of all the actions I need to be doing each month to keep my business on track. It’s good to have these things reinforced as it so easy to get caught up in things that don’t matter. Really valuable – and important – day

Angela Sims, Red Tulip

I’ve really enjoyed The Expert Economy networking events. There’s a wide variety of businesses to network with and one of the appealing things is the fact that it’s businesses from all over the country (even some international). Most other networking events are local so that makes a nice change. There are good expert speaker presentations as well as good networking opportunities in smaller breakout groups. Well run event, would definitely recommend.

Isi Dixon, Productivity Expert

Great first event from the Expert Economy.

Naomi Johnson was the host and she delivered a well structured and enjoyable meeting with like-minded businesses joining to discuss all things LinkedIn and what not to do when connecting.
The guest speaker was Daniel Disney from the daily sales and author of the million-pound LinkedIn message – I’ve been following Daniel for some time now and always enjoy his content and advice on social selling and he never fails to deliver a great talk.”

Paul Betts, Activ Business Solutions Ltd

Enjoyable event and the beginning of many new relationships – great!

Steve Wild, A4 Plus Limited

I really enjoyed connecting with other entrepreneurs and focusing again on a marketing strategy that works for entrepreneurs like me. I learned lots from the other attendees. It has reinvigorated me and given me the inspiration to keep going

Yvonne Omini – Dream Activator 

Great meeting with interesting people to talk to in the breakout rooms and a chance to learn more about LinkedIn.

Treena Maun, The Phobia Lady
