Guest Welcome Information
Welcome and thank you for visiting our Leads 7 Group! The purpose of our Leads Group is to provide networking opportunities through interactive weekly meetings for current Chamber members to have the opportunity to:
- generate referrals
- build relationships
- share best business practices
- and raise their visibility with in the business community
Some things to consider when thinking of joining our Leads Group 7 Networking Group:
- Our Leads Group 7 meets every Wednesday (except holidays) at Geo's Pool and Pub: 3260 Mahan Dr Tallahassee, FL 32308
Geo's is kind of a hole-in-the-wall place. The best way to get there is to head East on Mahan and it will be the first turning lane past the Sunshine Savings Bank sign on the left. It is the unmarked building in the very back of the parking lot.
We arrive between 11:15 – 11:25 to get settled, plate our food from the buffet and do some early bird networking. The meeting begins promptly at 11:30 am with a 15-30 minute speaker or engaging workshop and then you'll have an opportunity to share your 30 second “elevator speech” during the Introductions segment. Each month, on the first Wednesday of the month, the Leads Group 7 Leadership Team will make an effort to have a small activity or workshop to help you grow personally and professionally. You will find that quite a few members stay after the meeting to network, conduct 1-2-1's to pass out leads and to share some fellowship over a bite of fresh fruit, dessert or coffee.
- The meeting starts on time. REMEMBER, you would not be late to a meeting with a perspective client and you should consider every member in the group as a potential client. Also, please remember to dress appropriately (business or business casual, unless you have industry specific attire).
