No we don’t meet in Venice but we do have some great trips out.
The rest of the time we meet for breakfast every Tuesday in Hatfield Hertfordshire.
Platinum Point is an invitation-only network group with a difference.
The group members work on gaining a deep and clear understanding of each other’s businesses so that they are able to recognise opportunities for each other and actively promote and recommend each other with complete confidence.
Members are invited on the basis that they are leaders in their type of business and are highly referable.
Members take turns in chairing and running the meetings which results in a varied and interesting series of meetings. The weekly themes vary from workshop sessions on business development to tips, hints and techniques on special subjects such as accounting, tax, PR, marketing, web development, social media and digital marketing, franchising, finance, banking, insurance, legal services, HR, corporate projects, coaching, consulting, training and sales.
Members say that they place considerable importance on the group members being able to generate business for one another, the educational content of meetings and the sharing of specialist advice and guidance as an add-on to meetings.
The members come to Platinum Point :
- To give and receive leads, referrals and new business opportunities
- To give and receive mutual support and learning
- To give and receive consultancy within the group
How these three things are achieved is also important to group members.
The group members aim to highlight that they do this through developing strong and in-depth relationships. These are developed through actively meeting 1-2-1 and taking opportunities within group sessions to update one another on our skills etc. as these update. It is the depth of these relationships through which members can support one another and identify potential opportunities.
What about the business? Well, in 2015 the group generated almost £250,000 in new business for each other! This year is looking even better. It pays to be a member.
