Event description
Draig is the 2nd EVO networking group in Wales. Started in February 2021, currently meeting every 2 weeks online and visitors are welcome.

About this event

Welcome to EVO: 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 WALES Draig group is our 2nd group for Wales and is led by businessman Laurence Winmill.

Draig currently meets fortnightly online and will reintroduce quarterly face to face breakfast meetings from September 2021.

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 Tracy Park. 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). Each meets fortnightly at present and we do so using Zoom. Most groups will return to live venue meetings when it is safe to do so in September 2021.

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.
