London networking event - Leaders Circle At Urbano Taster Event

Leaders Circle @ Urbano (LC@U) starting this Spring will bring together entrepreneurial and driven ambitious business owners in a new model of business learning, mentoring and networking.

LC@U’s model has been created by John Grisby of Leaders Circle and Mark Herring of Urbano Network, creating a new peer advisory group model that allows entrepreneurs and enterprise owners to first identify the gaps in their own knowledge and then find assistance from the shared experiences of others.

The innovative LC@U model blends the best of US peer-to-peer learning with crowdlearning and group dynamics where topics will be chosen to be beneficial to the business needs of each Circles' members. LC@U will challenge all participants to set business targets for themselves against which to judge the value of LC@U.

This is the first of two taster sessions ahead of the launch of LC@U in April 2016. To register your interest in this taster session, please read the following paragraph and if it describes you and your business, then please book.

"I am an entrepreneur and business owner. I have established my company but though I would like to fulfil the potential of myself and my business, I now recognise I need help in breaking through my barriers to growth. I am ready to challenge myself and find answers with a group of similarly committed business-owners, in an atmosphere of honesty and mutual support, so that our success can be measured by the goals we set individually, and together learn what it takes to not only run but grow a successful company."
