If you've answered yes to these questions then please, let us introduce you to the Thrive Collective: The Meet Ups.
We currently Meet Up in various gatherings across Hertfordshire, Essex & London. Plus, keep checking back as new groups planned for 2020.
All Meet Ups are pay as you go as we realise you appreciate flexibility in your business, there's no memberships needed to come to our Meet Ups (although Members of Thrive Collective: The Membership receive a 20% discount) and as we're big on Community Over Competition, there's none of this 'lock out' malarkey. Every woman in business is welcome.
You can grab a ticket to our next event in each area & venue. Or keep on scrolling for more information on our groups and what to expect from our Meet Ups.
Hi, I'm Sam and I'm the founder of Thrive Collective.
As a female business owner I knew what I was looking for when it came to finding a place to network, to meet like minded women in business, a space to learn to grow and of course to Thrive. But I couldn't find what I was looking for. I wanted to mingle, I needed flexibility, I wasn't keen on paying membership fees and I wanted to attend a group where every woman was welcome. I coudn't find anything locally - so that's why I started Thrive Collective!
I believe in Community over Competition and creating opportunities to empower women. Thrive Collective host monthly groups for women in business, wherever they be on their journey to meet, connect, collaborate, learn and Thrive together. We are all here to support each other to build each other up and be a helping hand whenever it’s needed.
I look forward to meeting you at one of the Thrive Collective events in the future.
Connect & Collaborate
For two hours a month, we'll spend time connecting with women in the room. Every business owner needs a supporting network of people that just get it.
Working on your own business can be quite lonely, and sometimes finding someone to be able to chat to, to bounce ideas off can bring amazing results.
Connecting with the right people, will help you want to succeed and to find people to be supported by and with. Meaningful business and changes will happen - but nothing is forced or guaranteed.
Learn & Thrive
Every single month I invite a guest speaker to join us on key areas in business. They’ll spend 30 minutes sharing as much as they can on their specialist area.
This will include marketing, social media, branding & messaging, growing your business, confidence, resilence and business wellbeing. Something you’re keen to know about but it's not on that list? Ask me…I’ll bring in a guest speaker!
Thrive Collective: The Meet Ups are open to any woman in business with any type of business.
It's totally pay as you go, every woman is welcome and there are no membership fees to pay and there are no category lock outs. You just pay for the gatherings that you'd like to attend.
Ticket prices vary depending on location. Check the event links for more details.
This includes your entrance fee, a cuppa or cold drink and a cake or pastry!
To support ambitious women in business further I also have Thrive Collective: The Membership which is of course entirely optional to join. Members receive a 20% discount to all Thrive Collective Meet Ups.
With 5 venues & locations to choose from, you can take your pick!
Each month, our two hours will be packed with introductions, ideas and inspiration to help enrich your business.
Each month this is what you can expect.
Arrival Welcome drink and time for casual networking or half an hour. We'll start by every one around the room sharing who they are and their business name (There are no 60 seconds introductions but it's nice to know who's there). Time to mingle and chat with your fellow women in business.
30 minutes Guest Speaker. Take a seat and prepare to receive all kinds of help in your business.
Followed by Watercooler moment. Remember those days at work? You'd chat at the watercooler and ask for help and be given ideas from your colleagues? Well let's create those watercooler moments. We'll have two requests from ladies in the room who need help in their business.

Don't just take my word for it. Have a read of what others have to say about attending a Thrive Collective gathering.
"I love Sam's meet up in Bishop Stortford, I met some really welcoming ladies (I'm new to networking) and learnt heaps from the guest speaker, can't wait for the next one". Lauren Derrett, founder of Wear Em Out
"The idea of networking hadn’t even crossed my mind until I met Sam, yet I have found the meet ups to be so invaluable. The connections made with other like-minded women, a local network of support for everything I may need in my business, and great guest speakers each month have all given me a great deal of help and insight into expanding my business and make it run more efficiently". Emma Osbourne, founder of Hushaboo Night Nanny and Sleep Consultant
"Thrive Meet Ups are a great opportunity to meet many of the virtual Thrivers face to face. There’s always a great presentation and no hideous 1 minute elevator pitches". Rebecca Day, Founder of Day HR Consultants.
"It is a room full of genuine, hardworking, inspiring business women! It is such a supporting environment and I learnt so much! " Jo Patel, owner of Phonics Stars Bishop's Stortford.
"My first ever Thrive Meetup = A welcoming group of women from various businesses; a guest speaker with useable tips & interesting Q&As plus a chance to Network and Swap Ideas / Contacts. A supportive atmosphere too!" Rosalyn Gail, founder of YogaRos.
I'm certain that the format, the vibe and the kinds of women that Thrive Collective is attracting is unique. The kinds of women who attend are an equal measure of regular networker and the kind of women in business who has always been put off by traditional events.
Because we remove the awquard elements that so many of our women don't enjoy, it creates an atmosphere of support and inspiration.
And so I am constantly asked almost daily "please can you start a Meet Up near me". I wish I could!
To help me expand opportunities for women to meet at these gatherings, I need your help.
If you've been to an event, or seen the gatherings on social media, you may be interested in knowing more about the franchise opportunity to run your own Thrive Collective: The Meet Up.
