Global Online Speed Networking (GOSN)

Global Online Speed Networking

Our Global Online Speed Networking Event, in association with MMT, for September brought so many stupendous entrepreneurs together. It was all themed around the My Most Trusted Software from Scott Cundill.

We had a Tech room for those wanting to learn how to install this amazing software and how to use it. We had networking rooms where many connections were made and coffees booked. This is what we live for, to see relationships being build before any business is done!

Congratulations to the GOSN Task Force for all their hard work in the background to make this successful. You guys are freakin’ amazing! Megan Deers, Janine Lingenfelder, Sommerville Lombard, & Darlene Petrie.

If you want to come to our next exciting event where you will make awesome business connections, then register for October –>>> https://zurl.co/i2qn

Explore VAN (Virtual Assistant Network)

Explore VAN (Virtual Assistant Networking) Event

Explore VAN September Event – overcoming many obstacles with great big smiles

Explore VAN September turned a whole year old, and to celebrate they had 2 amazing guest speakers – Sondra Ray and Jade Fedder. These two ladies gave some amazing information and advice which still has the members talking.

Amongst all this joy and celebration, Explore VAN had to overcome some interesting obstacles. There was the Loadshedding crisis, which affected some VAN members more than others, so some could not attend the celebration.  Due to the rolling blackouts and other power cuts in her area, the amazing MC, Janine Lingenfelder, had no more energy to spare to be there. Not even her backups of her backups had any more power.  So it was up to Martie Cronjé and Sommerville Lombard to MC the event. 

Ladies well done for jumping in at short notice when a friend/fellow member is in crisis. That is what we are here for, to help each other learn and grow (even if you are thrown in the deep-end #LOL)

Just to put a funny spin on this whole event, Sommerville Lombard was out camping with her family to celebrate her littlest one’s first birthday. So she presented Explore VAN from her Van!

A special thanks to TEAM LEADERS Sommerville Lombard from The Sommerville Agency, Janine Lingenfelder from Jelani Sales, and all the other Virtual Assistants working tirelessly to grow this very important support network for our tribe!

Tribal Council

Tribal Council
The Council from left to right: Fuad Miah, Nestene Botha, Hendrik Baird, Chris Kolbe, Martie Cronjé, & Sindre Kaupang

During the tribal council, we take everything we’ve learned and shared in all other meetings and see how we can actually use them. There, you’ll get input from other tribe members for a balanced perspective.

This is a fun and safe space to talk about your business and where you need help. Tribe members are always willing to give you input and/or refer the right people to help you.

What an amazing group of entrepreneurs! If you aren’t there then you really are missing out.

My Most Trusted Introductions and Referrals - Team Hurricane

My Most Trusted Team Hurricane Save Scott

When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade! This is so true especially if you have an amazing team of willing entrepreneurs behind you.

This event was planned and ready to go as Scott usually hosts his My Most Trusted Introduction and Referrals events himself. Then suddenly there was a hurricane warning for the coast of Florida, USA and the surrounding islands.  Scott was on one of these islands.  He reached out to Nestene, on the day his event was scheduled for, as he was uncertain if he was going to make it to his own event.  No Problem Scott – We got you!!

Just like a virtual hurricane, there were winds of nervous excitement, showers of ideas and suddenly it was all hands on deck.  Nestene pulled together a WhatsApp group with tribe members that were willing and able to help out, with the event happening that evening. The GOSN Task Force was also pulled in as they have been running the GOSN events smoothly for quite awhile, so who better to help out a tribe member in need than this team.

With Captain Nestene behind the wheel and her trusty first-mate, Megan Deers from the GOSN Task Force by her side, there was a major plan underway. There were messages going back n forth in the WhatsApp group to make sure this ship sailed smoothly. People moved their meetings around and swapped out school runs, just to help this ship sail.

In 2 hours there was:

  • an Event Plan ready to implement
  • an Amazing MC
  • Plenty of willing Room Hosts
  • 2 Tech Room Hosts to assist attendees with the MMT App
  • a Zoom Etiquette Master
  • a Zoom Tech Wizard
  • and Scott’s right-hand lady, Gemma Osterloh, to oversee the whole event.

This is a true example of how we can save the global economy one small (well not really small anymore) business at a time. When we band together as a team we can achieve just about anything.

Quote of the day: “It’s the best thing in the world to be able to help someone in a crisis!”. Now this is how we roll.

Oh and Scott and his family were safely evacuated before the hurricane hit their island. Once it had past, they made their way back to their home, which luckily did not sustain much damage. Their house literally missed the worst of it by a hair, 20 minutes down the road and it was carnage!

We are so happy you and your family were safe, and thank you for trusting us to fill in for you while you were running away from a hurricane. Looking forward to the next event we can host for you minus the natural disaster please!!!

No Prizes for guessing who is in most these screenshots!!!! Janine you are a star. She meets with so many of the tribe members each week just to stay abreast of what they are doing. Maybe Janine deserves a prize for being the Tribe Social Butterfly?

Do it the Explore Protech Way

Coffee First, Business Later!

The mindset coming into a network is building the relationship to get to know the person behind the business first, then “How can I help refer YOU?” without expectation of business in return. This way everyone will support everyone else in growing their business. You will do business with people in the TRIBE (and that’s good) but if this is your objective you won’t grow your business.

To reiterate this, 2 Meetups were planned, one for Tribe members in Pretoria & Johannesburg, and the other for the Cape Town Tribies. They are planning to go visit a Wine Farm and the other to visit a hidden paradise buried in the heart of the bushveld. If you want to find out how these face2face meetups went, you are just going to have to wait until the next issue of our Explore ProTech Newsletter. Watch this Space!
