12 July 18.00
Are you an independent consultant working in or around Oxfordshire? We’d love you to join us at the Oxford Independent Consultants Meetup.
The theme this time is 'Collaboration and Celebration'. People often tell us the thing they miss most about working in a team or office is having a sounding board for their ideas. The meetup will include an hour dedicated to group 'mastermind' sessions. Working in small groups, you will benefit from at least 10 minutes to get input from others on a goal you're working towards or something that's challenging you in your business. Maybe you want to work on your pricing, on squeezing more into your packed schedule, or finding new clients while delivering for your existing ones. Perhaps you simply want to work out how to take some time off over the summer! Whatever it is you're grappling with, you'll be able to use the experience of the group to help you. Based on participants at the last event, we're confident you will find a wealth of experience in the room to help you. Simply come prepared to get involved in the group discussion and be ready to share your ideas with others. After the mastermind discussions, there'll be plenty of time to enjoy a drink and a chat – a mid-year celebration before the summer holidays!
Event timings 6-6.30pm – drinks and welcome 6.30-7.30pm – group mastermind sessions 7.30-8pm – time to chat with your new connections.
Your ticket price includes light bites and welcome drinks (alcoholic and soft drinks).

What is a mastermind session? A mastermind is a group peer-to-peer mentoring session designed to help you tackle challenges using the collective experience of others at the event.
Do I need to prepare for the mastermind session? You will get more from the mastermind if you think beforehand about where you'd like to get some input from others' experience. It's not essential to prep – you'll be surprised how you feel inspired once the session starts. The most important thing is to be prepared to take part in the group discussion and support others as their sounding board.
I'm new to consulting so I'm not sure I can contribute to the mastermind Everyone has something valuable to contribute through their different perspectives and life/work experience.
If you are newly independent or even new to the world of work, do not let this put you off!
