Had a couple of afternoon meet-ups at Stratenger's this summer, and general thought was that we might get better attendance if we had an evening meeting in the fall -- maybe one of the meeting rooms at the Ralph Thornton Centre, maybe have a speaker in to talk about a topic for a half-hour, followed by coffee and networking.
Is there interest? Let me know. We could shoot for an evening near the end of September.
Ben was involved in a small business association before he moved to Leslieville, and there are definitely some things that would be beneficial: we could have speakers in on a regular basis, network regularly, and start to take advantage of each other's skill set.
It is very nice to meet you within the Leslieviller. I am the Branch Manager at the RBC Branch in Leslieville (Canadian Tire Plaza) and have held 3 Business Seminar's/Networking events at the Branch over the last 18 months that were very successful (20-30ppl in attendance) I will once again be hosting a Business Networking Event on Tuesday Oct 18th at 7.30am at our Queen and Lee RBC Branch location. We will be having a Business owner from the area do a short presentation on a topic of interest followed by networking, coffee and breakfast treats. I would like to extend an invitation for you to attend with anyone you think would be interested whether or not your are RBC Clients. We welcome all !
Please email me or post if you have any questions. I will be posting a PDF on the site over the next week or two to advertise the event.
Take care and hope to speak soon.
Sounds like a great idea and if I'm available I would definitely attend!
Thanks for putting it out there.
Great to meet you, and hi to Jenn - love this idea of connecting with people in the 'hood. It's a great thing. I'm going to be posting some workshops shortly - and have some great news from a little tiny client of 9 who just won the Rising Star competition and $1500... rather proud of her!
I do public speaking coaching and singing performance coaching as well. More information at Voice Empowerment - www.voiceempowerment.com. I work offsite a great deal, in the Annex, and in the hood, depending on the project.
Looking forward to meeting with you all!

That sounds like a wonderful idea; I'm in. I've been hoping for an opportunity to connect with other small business owners in the area. September may be a bit tough for me too, but please do keep us posted!
Hope to hear from you soon.
