The first Home Boardroom lunch will take place in my home on the lower nth shore in Sydney, 16th August 2011. The idea came about this month after i floated the idea with the followers of this blog & Facebook page. The 'Table of Fabulousness' as it has now become known is for small biz owners who work from home and are in startup or early stage and crave to meet IRL (In Real Life) with like minded people in a professional, yet warm & friendly place over lunch to discuss business in general, exchange ideas, receive support & feedback, share & just connect!
Formation to date has been fun and a real creative collaboration - it shaped itself within 10 days!
- Stephanie of www.partyforacause.org suggests the spirit we should meet in is **100% confidentiality** ie what's said around the table of fabulousness STAYS at the table of fabulousness?
- Diana - startup - biz tbc, after 20 years in financial markets via a year off to complete her Masters suggests lunch guests provide me with a background profile to prepare the guest list. It's taken the shape of....
- About you: Your Name & contact details inc home address & your linked in address
- Biz: Who is the biz? What does it do? Who/what will it be? What stage are you at?
- Opportunity: why is there a market for your product? What is the potential?
- USP: What makes your product/biz unique?
- Income: How will/does it generate sales?
- Challenges: what are your key risks and how are/will they be managed?
