Hi All,

I'm based in south Shropshire in easy commute to Telford, Wolverhampton or Birmingham. I could also do Manchester or Bristol at a push.

Anyone know of any local events in these areas?

If not perhaps we could set one up. I know of at least 1 other person in the Birmingham area that would be interested.

Cheers

Martin

    I should add that I am not a newbie and I would class myself as intermediate. I would be happy if the events were for those having success or are relatively new.

    Your thoughts and suggestions are most welcome...

    Used to organise Midlands Warriors but dwindling numbers meant I stopped running it a long time ago.

    Other threads floating around here with Birmingham / West Midlands meets, again following the same route so it seems.

    If you want something doing, best to do it yourself:
    - define the group on here and meetup.com to increase reach
    - set a first date, time, location

    Until someone does that, nothing will get off the ground I'm afraid.

    Tim.

    We do a Birmingham meetup now and again but nothing regular. Problem is that no one else took initiative and I do not always have the time/motivation to organise it.

    If you are motivated lets talk and i can activate the lists...

      In the US, theres a site called Manta that lists businesses and the owners name, employees numbers etc etc, it does the UK too to a lesser extent as I think the businesses have to go in and fill the details (i dont know though) , anyone know such a site for the UK that would have more complete records for the UK.

      also in the USA SRDS.com is a database of businesses mainly for direct mail , is there such a site in the UK

    Hi Manta is a site that lists businesses details ie owners name employees etc certainly good for US,, UK wise its not too complete.

    SRDS is a database for US businesses, looking for UK version

    Dont want to jump this thread - but Birmingham has its own group and since so many of us are from Birmingham lets get this show on the road.

    http://www.warriorforum.com/local-me...-meetup-2.html

    I can book a private room in Bacchus bar (close to train, buses and slap bang in the centre) most days of the week and even weekend. I believe a weekday evening works best for most people. So let me know the general consensus of a good day and i'll get this baby booked.

    hello,

    I am based in Leicester and would certainly be interested in meeting up too.

    If Leicester is any good, maybe I could see if there is a suitable venue here?

    Look forward to hearing from fellow members on this.

    Thanks
    Anand
