Thanks for the comments, everyone :).

One piece of advice I can give you, Tiggerito … ok, a couple of pieces …

Promote it well. As time goes by, I’m learning to promote the event more effectively, and that now means a dedicated newsletter to people in Brisbane and surrounds, Twitter, Facebook and mentioning on sites such as Flying Solo.

The other very important thing is to hold it even if only one other person turns up. Sometimes people don’t RSVP, and arrive unannounced. I’ve started insisting upon RSVPs, just in case the time/date/venue changes. But I also believe in honouring the event 100% so if turnout is low, it can’t be cancelled as people have committed their time to attending.

Hope that helps. I really enjoy creating my networking groups and everyone always has a great time!
