Networks, Riversand Network

Just Ask Riversands Launched!

Just Ask Riversands, Just Ask’s latest business referral has recently launched.

The Just Ask Riversands network has 8 members and are in the process of on-boarding two more to bring the number to the targeted network size of 10. The Riversands Network decided that they wanted to limit the size of their group initially to ensure that they are able to develop a better relationship between the members.

The members still to be on–boarded at this stage represent legal services and office automation.


The meetings comprise 3 focus areas:

  1. Member promotion of their services and the profile of clients that they are trying to identify
  2. Business Assistance to one or more members who request advice from the Group with regard to challenges that they are encountering in their business
  3. Business Education relating to an element of business that the members have identified as something they would like to have more information about.


Given the unique Riversands Farm Village venue where the Group meets, they decided to get together in the late afternoon every second Thursday which can then be followed by a drink rather than the usual breakfast arrangement. Just Ask Riversands is another great example of Just Ask providing the structure and platform for business people to engage and help each other while still providing the flexibility to accommodate the members preferences.
