Women's Small Group Network + Connect Series

  • AlignCatalyst 1901 Jefferson Ave Suite 105 Tacoma, WA (map)

For the first time, we're offering a series of small group networking meetings so that you can build your confidence, connections and relationships with other local women in business over time. We’ll get to know each other deeply and support each other’s businesses, ideas, and dreams through the ‘small group networking’ format that we've used - with a lot of success - over the last two years. Lead by Allison Stewart Bishins of Allison Bishins Consulting, we are so thankful for Align Catalyst, our venue sponsor.

SCHEDULE:
Jan 30, 6-8pm (Meeting #1)
Feb 20, 6-8pm (Meeting #2)
March 13, 6-8pm (Meeting #3)
March 20, 6-9pm (Celebration)

Meeting 1: Receive group assignments. Introduce yourself and your business to the whole group. In your small groups, identify current challenges and brainstorm solutions. Group leaders will take a few notes on topics that keep coming up. Light snacks.

Meetings 2 & 3: Dive into a topic chosen from issues raised in Meeting 1, with an intro and prompt from Allison. Continue brainstorming and connecting. Light snacks.

Meeting 4: Badass Ladies Party! Each series member will bring two women from the community that they admire, or want to meet, or think should connect with someone in the group. (Or your rad friends - but I encourage you to think outside your normal acquaintances!) These two tickets are included in your overall series cost. Additional tickets will be available to local women at a small cost. Light appetizers and non-alcoholic drinks provided.

MORE DETAILS:

This series is limited to 24 self-identifying women. No childcare is provided. Please make sure you can attend at least Meetings 1-3 (preferably all dates) before purchasing the series. You cannot purchase a ticket to a single meeting. There are no refunds if you do not/cannot attend individual sessions. If you have an emergency before the series starts and I can fill your space, you will get a refund minus a 20% administrative fee.

Would you like to be a group leader? Group leaders make sure that each group member has ample time to talk, moves the conversation along, and makes notes on topics raised, to help me formulate future topics. This is a great chance to exercise your leadership, time management, and facilitation skills! Group leaders should plan to arrive 15 min early each month to touch base and help set up. Group leaders receive a 50% refund at the end of the completed series. How many group leaders I need depends on overall number of attendees - feel free to email me allisonbishins@gmail.com to check in.
