Schedule your “1-to-1s”
Whether a face to face or online networking organization, many groups encourage their members to get to know each other further by connecting on a person to person basis. In the realm of in person networking groups, such as BNI, these meetings are called a “1-to-1s” or “One to One”.
The idea behind this is that it is important to further build a business relationship by getting to know one another on a deeper, more intimate level. This in turn leads to a better understanding of each other, their business, and hopefully how you can help each other’s business grow.
One of the things our members at GoGrabLunch.com enjoy about the site is how our service helps facilitate those meetings. Members can use our site to plan networking opportunities, along with the date and time they are available, and have other group members simply pick a preset appointment to join.
Here is how that would look.
- John knows that two weeks from now on Tuesday he would like to have a 1-to1 with a fellow group member. Instead of picking a specific person, he
Plans a Lunch for that date, time, and even chooses the location.
- At his next group meeting John notifies the other members that he has an open networking opportunity on that Tuesday and invites anyone within the group to join him.
- Jane decides that date and time work for her, so she Grabs a Lunch with John.
And that’s it. This process works for anytime of the day, not just lunch appointments, even coffee breaks. No back and forth emails about what date and time works for everyone involved.
Consider us your “1-to-1” scheduling assistant!
