Members Helping Members - Educating, Informing, Supporting
As many of us know EOK sprang to life from Leonard Knight gathering together with some fellow business leaders over coffee to help one another with whatever issues they were facing. This casual supportive environment was so successful that it grew beyond the confines of a coffee shop into what we now know and love as EOK!
Fortunately the increase in members has meant incredible opportunities for member success and extensive offerings to the Entrepreneurial community. Unfortunately it has also meant the watering down of the more intimate individualized peer support of the coffee gatherings.
In an effort to get back to our roots, we are starting peer groups of up to 15 people; with the twist of each group having a facilitator to keep things on track. There will be five groups starting in June and each group will meet monthly for two hour brainstorming/collaboration/support sessions. The meeting times and dates are as follows:
1st Monday from 9 – 11 am (with Coley Pardue)
1st Thursday from 1 – 3 pm (with Cindy Hinds)
2nd Thursday from 2 – 4 pm (with Judy Householder)
3rd Monday from 9 – 11 am (with Beth Foister)
3rd Thursday from 8 – 10 am (with Ed Engel)
I’ll be creating a group on the EOK web-site for each of the above time slot options for people to sign-up. We are excited to rekindle the flame that sparked the blaze that is now EOK!
