IW2N90 is a membership-based online monthly networking group designed for driven individuals who want to learn and collaborate in a facilitated group environment.

No need to give up networking just because you’re stuck at home. Apparently it’s just as useful and fun as the
real thing.

So if you’re proactive, ambitious and positive and want to spread your reach across the country and beyond, you’re in the right place.

Networking 90

Just because our meetings are friendly and relaxed, it doesn’t mean they’re not efficient and focussed. Quite the opposite. The rules are simple. One person from each profession, strict time-keeping and a friendly atmosphere. We pack a lot in and keep you smiling for the full 90 minutes. Pressure and targets don’t work, so there’s no obligation to refer, unless it’s a really strong lead.

Ask the expert

Each meeting includes an inspiring speaker, usually a member, who is the only representative of their profession, and therefore the resident expert, sharing knowledge and skills. You’ve been there, done that and got the t-shirt – now it’s your time to help others improve and grow.

We’ll try to answer them here but if you’re still not sure, contact us for a chat.

What is the meeting format?
1. Introduction and welcome

2. Ask the expert – A member or invited guest speaker presents on their specialist subject for 15 minutes, with 10 minutes for questions, or a MasterMind session, a facilitated group discussion around business issues our members are facing.

3. 60-second elevator pitch, where members and visitors introduce their business.

4. Zoom around – How can you help others in the group? Any referrals or recommendations? No waffle, it’s straight down to business.

5. Mini 1-2-1s in breakout rooms. Tell the host who you want to chat to and she’ll make it happen.

How do I join?
You’ve decided to join – hooray and welcome! Before we crack open the bubbly, we’ll send you an application sign-up link. As soon as you’ve made your first payment, your professional lockout is activated.
How many people in a group?
There are up to 15 members and up to 3 visitors in a group every month. We believe in quality over quantity and we love keeping it small and cosy. Our members tell us they value the familiarity and the strength of relationships created by limited numbers.
Can I visit IW2N90?
Yes. A visitor ticket costs £20. You can visit one group twice, or two groups once before deciding to take the plunge. We may not be the cheapest but our pricing reflects the quality of the connections you will make. Everyone in the ‘room’ is carefully selected.
Will the meetings still be online post-lockdown?
Yes. Join us from anywhere and save travel time and money. Fire up the laptop and enjoy 90 minutes of networking from the comfort of home. PJ bottoms are welcome.
Why only once a month?
Our members tell us that monthly meetings are ideal. We are all too busy for more, and it’s perfect for forming valuable relationships without resenting unmanageable time commitments. We keep in touch between meetings with a LinkedIn pod, a WhatsApp group and social events.
What if I am unable to attend a meeting?
You can send a substitute in your place. A colleague or a friend who will read out your elevator pitch and will have the opportunity to sell their own services too – as long as that category is not already represented. You can do this up to 3 times a year.
What if I’m already a member of a networking group?
Are you worried about the time constraints of adding another group to your to-do list? Never fear! We only meet once a month – that’s plenty of time to form really useful connections. Come and meet a different set of people from across the UK and beyond. The power of Zoom – #pandemicupside!
Why should I start networking when business is already booming?
Think of it as ongoing marketing, which we all know we have to do but finding the time is tricky. If you’re not getting much out of your current networking, maybe you haven’t found the right group yet? Futureproof your business with smarter networking – try us!

Rave Reviews

Cavara has evolved all her networking events to meet the demands of her members and has “stayed open for business” . Doing business over a table has been seemlessly moved over to an online round table, and a sense of community has not only remained strong but has grown to welcome new members.

IW2N is a relatively new networking group. It is online only which is a great bonus as it means less travel and connections can be made nationwide. I have found it a very friendly and buzzing group with great business opportunities.

The best thing about Netwroking90 is the mini 1-2-1s at the end in breakout rooms. No need to carve out extra precious times between meetings!
