London networking event - Leaders Circle At Urbano - March 2016

Leaders Circle @ Urbano (LC@U) starting this Spring will bring together entrepreneurs and 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 high-potential enterprise owners to first identify the gaps in their own knowledge and then find assistance from the experiences of others.

The innovative LC@U model blends the best of US peer-to-peer learning with crowd-learning and group decision making, where topics will be chosen for the maximum benefiit to the business needs of each Circles' member, not top-down seminars with a one-size-fits-all agenda. Rather, Leaders Circle will be collaborative with each member able to share their own challenges from month-to-month which will be discussed and solutions sought from inside and outside the circle via expert Urbano connections.

This is the second 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 a business owner* who is an Urbano member, or has attended at least one Urbano event. I have now established my company but now wish to take it to the next level.  I now recognise I need help in identifying and then breaking through the barriers that are stopping me growing my business, and fulfilling both my own and my company's potential.

I am ready to challenge myself as an entrepreneur, indentify the gaps in my own knowledge and find answers to my issues with a group of similarly committed business-owners, in an atmosphere of honesty and mutual support. I want to put these lessons into practice and be challenged and helped to develop a more successful business."

* If you fall outside this tight remit, contact the office as we may offer other Circles for Co-directors or Partners in companies, or hold senior positions in companies.

** This is the last Taster event before launch. Please only book if you are interested in becoming a member of the Pioneer Leaders Circle @ Urbano.
