Meeting format

12pm

Prompt start

12.10

Mikado

A structured, workshop-style event hosted by experts in marketing, networking and other communication disciplines.

Our hosts provide tips to improve our skills in their area of expertise and facilitate introductions and conversation within the group.

This session is designed to ensure you meet and talk to as many people as possible in the room. 

Ten second round

Every person in the room is given the opportunity to introduce themselves and their business in ten seconds or less.

12.30

Impossible connections

This is an opportunity to ask for specific introductions, based on the concept of six degrees of separation, a familiar premise that states: anyone on the planet can be connected to anyone else in just six steps.

The theory, based on a story from 1929, assumes that we all know at least 44 people, and each of these people knows another 44 people, and in just six steps, through random acquaintances, everyone could be connected to 7.88 billion people – that is roughly how many people are living today!

So, through five other people we can be connected to Richard Branson, the King of England or even the President of the USA!

12.45

Drinks reception

An opportunity for informal networking during which members and guests can mingle, meet and catch up over a glass of wine or non-alcoholic drink.

13.00

Lunch

A more formal affair and always in a prestigious 5-star venue.

Members and guests are able to share advice and experiences at intimate tables of six or eight while enjoying a delicious three-course meal with wine.

For many members our lunches are the highlight of the month.

14.30

Speaker

Each meeting concludes with an invited, highly respected, keynote speaker.

The EAGB is known for the calibre of our speakers. Not only for the topics and the depth of knowledge they share but also for the opportunity this offers us to meet and speak to these highly informed experts.

15.15

Finish

 

Previous speakers

We have been fortunate to hear some of the most authoritative individuals in their field speak at our meetings.

As a professional speaker who has presented to delegates in over 60 countries for nearly 3 decades, speaking for the EAGB is one of the best gigs I have ever done. Why? Because the members have the perfect speaking trifecta. They want to learn, are inquisitive without being disruptive and most of all, have a huge desire to make the talk as much fun as possible. What a blast! But of course, the word Executive is in the title. Not only did I have a great time but I also came away with high quality leads and bookings. It was 20 years since I last spoke for EAGB, hope it is less than 20 years before I do it again
