EVO Business Club is one of the fastest growing business networks in the UK. Founded in 2015, we have welcomed, connected and engaged with 1000s of visitors, speakers and members.

EVO SIERRA GROUP currently meets fortnightly online and is carefully reintroducing face to face breakfast meetings on The Grand Pier. This group covers North Somerset and the surrounding areas.

  • What makes EVO different is our relaxed and friendly approach to business networking and, prior to the UK lockdown in March 2020, our use of premium venues from Harvey Nicols to The Ivy. We don't have too many 'rules' and each leader stamps their own distinctive style on a group. We also welcome outstanding external speakers: e.g. in 2020 we welcomed the MD of Barclays Business - Ian Workman, gold medallist cyclist and EVO Ambassador Mark Colbourne MBE, BBC1 presenter and property guru - Martin Roberts, former world champion boxer - Glenn Catley, former NATO Commander - James Short CB OBE and former cabinet minister - Baroness Primarolo.
    • EVO is a Membership Organisation, we encourage guests to visit a group, and then ask that you consider joining the fastest growing network in the UK. Spaces are limited and are subject to approval.
    • There are now 12 groups covering the UK with a particular focus on the South West of England and Wales. We now have 2 that are UK-wide (online only).

    What To Expect

    As a visitor, you will either take part in one of two different meeting formats - depending on which week it is.

    • Classic Week: you will have a chance to introduce yourself in the meeting for around a minute, take part in a 1-1 meeting randomly selected, meet and listen to an expert speaker and then participate in a group 'mastermind' meeting for 15 minutes towards the end. This is where a small group break-away and discuss a set question or challenge.
    • Mastermind Week: you will have a chance to introduce yourself in the meeting for around a minute, participate in a group 'mastermind' meeting for 15 minutes (with a group feedback round following this), ask the other attendees for an introduction to a business, then take part in a 1-1 meeting.
