Teesside Young Guns
Where sociable Business Leaders gather...
Young Guns was formed in 2008 after several professional business leaders in Teesside became disillusioned with the 'token gestures' of structured networking.
The same faces were on the same circuit yet we were all thinking the same thing. It then dawned on us that we shared common personal interests and that we would learn more about each other by meeting 'socially' rather than just in a professional capacity.
In reality, what do you find out about someone by simply swapping business cards? Nothing!
Young Guns are all influential Young(ish) Business Professionals: Business Owners, Directors, Partners & Decision Makers based in and around the Tees Valley in the North East of England. We are not a group for 'Lifestyle Businesses'.
We wanted to avoid the pit-falls of other groups with pushy salespeople and reps too.
We look to meet on the first Friday of each month in Yarm.
So whether you wish to just call in for a quick coffee, you're driving home, or wish to leave the car and make a 'night of it', you will be warmly welcomed. Our regular calendar of events attract between 50 & 100 quality individuals. If this sounds like the type of group for you, visit our page on LinkedIn and press JOIN.
Our quality and informality make us who we are, so we kindly ask, do not join this group if you have no intention of coming along, as you will gain nothing. Also, please do not use this group to 'peddle' your own other networking groups or preach any of the cheesy lines learned at a 6:00am networking club!
The outcome is therefore simple. Good People, Great Friendships, Memorable Nights and New Opportunities!
