Last week, in the boardroom of CIEE Global Institute in London, eight SME owners joined the Evoke Management team for a morning of networking, business advice, collaboration and lunch.
The group voted to discuss two hot-seat topics – ‘setting business goals’ and ‘the best sales channels for my business’. The group of ambitious individuals enjoyed the company and wisdom of fellow business owners, who acted temporarily as a ‘Board’, helping them overcome issues they were facing within their organisations. Future topics covered will include Online Marketing, Best Practice Management Accounting and a host of further issues faced by business owners across a range of sectors.
Evoke Management has created a safe environment under Chatham House Rules, ensuring complete confidentiality and a forum for sharing business quandaries and issues relating to many topics.
Watch our Virtual Board Testimonials…
The first Virtual Board attendees gave us a snapshot of their experience in a few words:
‘Interesting and useful session. I got the benefit of sounding boards and I found not only practical and constructive solutions, but different ways of thinking.’
Marie-Noelle, Interior Designer
‘Open discussion in a safe environment has been a very enriching and pleasant experience.’
Catherine Baudino, Executive Coach
‘It was like business therapy. People ironing out issues with their business that they probably wouldn’t have seen on their own in a secure and supportive environment. It felt very productive.’
Mike Andrews, CEO Business Places
‘I’ve learned so much about how my business could be helped with doing this monthly. It helps to take a completely holistic view of your business. It offers help with finance, operations, HR and most importantly goal setting.’
Matt Gough, Travel Company
From Evoke Management’s perspective, it was rewarding to see every attendee benefit from the meeting and appreciate the value of spending time with fellow business owners, under the guidance of a facilitator.
The first Virtual Board proved to be a successful start to an exciting initiative.
