“EVO is a networker's dream”

I have been networking for over 10 years, and although I have been an active member of various networks EVO is one that I return to time after time. I attended one of the first meetings in 2015. Since then we have had wonderful meetings in some luxurious locations around the South West. But networking is not about nice meetings, in nice locations, with nice people. Networking is about output and results! The structure of an EVO meeting, both face to face, and since Covid, Online, is to achieve one thing, the facilitation of members to make, build and solidify relationships. It’s then our job as networkers to turn them into business results such as income, deals, £££! But sometimes they result in more, much MUCH MORE!!! I met Ben Mason in early 2017, at an EVO breakfast at Harvey Nics, as with all long-lasting relationships it started with a shared business card, then a 121 to find out a little more. We quickly realised that we held similar business values, doing the right thing and doing it right, particularly in markets where charlatans can hide in plain sight. We built a solid business relationship, introducing work to each other, doing work for each other, sharing advice and buying each other’s services. Becoming firm friends, so when the opportunity presented itself where we could work together, we jumped at it.

Where are we today? Ben and the other founders of Kinherit invited me to join their team last year, in less than 12 months we have grown immensely from a team of 7 to a team of 20+ with growth in the 100’s of %. We have team members that have taken over our mantel as EVO members and use various EVO members past and present as our outsource providers. To say we would be where we are today without EVO is only true in the fact that that is where we met, but I do believe those early days of a breakfast, a shared business card and a 121 was the first step. Thank you to Jamie and all at EVO for doing what you do best, the facilitation of members to make, build and solidify relationships. The rest of the hard work is all ours, but if just 10% of your members get the value that Ben and I have gained, you’ll have boosted the UK economy in the Billions. If you have read this very long testimonial, and you’ve not worked your EVO team, had your 121s (don't stop at 1, Ben and I have had so many they turned from 121's into catching up with a friend) actively sought to introduce them business and sought to use their services - then you won’t know what opportunities and successes are just around the EVO networking corner.

“I have been working in networking events since March 2008 - alongside our Founder Jamie Breese. My background in law and television production, plus my lifelong passion for travelling has made me a true people- person and it’s this passion that I see in each and every EVO group. EVO gives me the opportunity to connect with our Members and would-be Members every day. We’ve built an excellent community of great people and I look forward to seeing where the next 6 years takes us” Sarah Brooks Head of Business Development

our story

It all started in November 2015 with a open meeting at Open Space in Bristol. We utilised the UK’s largest whiteboard. We asked the 75 guests to simply tell us what they wanted from a new network and EVO Business Club was born. More than 6 years later, we have grown and to become one of the UK’s most popular premium business community, and post-pandemic, we’re a blend of online and in- person meetings in premium venues.

18 November 2015 EVO Launch Event

our story

“Our first meeting was a memorable event for sure. We welcomed a number of friends and contacts who were prepared to take a leap of faith and buy a ticket for a breakfast with a promise of new connections, good food in a premium spot. The majority of guests applied to join that very day - and EVO was off. This is a photo of me welcoming the attendees at Brasserie Blanc in a converted 13th-century monastery! 6 years later, we’ve grown, survived the Covid crisis and are now a UK-wide business networking community of like-minded people.”

our story

As EVO grows in the UK we’re now building similar like- minded communities abroad. Who knows - one day we might bring our international cousins together for one big mega-meeting. The world is certainly a smaller place today, and the adoption of Zoom has enabled more people than ever to meet and do business. It’s some time yet until we press go abroad, but watch this space!
