COME TO OUR NEXT EVENT 30th Jan > London Bridge
The Twenty Mile Club are kicking off 2018 with our second ever Honest Truths event of the year. After the first Honest Truths totally sold out at the end of last year, the feedback suggested we were offering a different kind of Q&A and that spurred us on to do more and roll out our second one ‘The Honest Truths of Building A Business and Starting A Movement’ > Tickets HERE
The most successful people have built ‘communities’ around their businesses or around their interests (that have then subsequently turned into their businesses). Their followers are those who are genuinely passionate about what they do and will spread the word to their friends and family. But just how easy is it to build a community? How do you even start? How do you know when you even have a community and once you’ve got one, how do you maintain it? When do you realise your passion can now be made into a business and how do you bring the community with you?
We scouted out three people who’ve built communities around their businesses and as a result have started a movement amongst their followers. Representing 3 completely diverse communities, because we believe variety is the spice of life and our audience hold different interests; allow us to intro you to our speakers for the evening:
- Rob Martineau co-founder of Tribe: Rob ditched his corporate career and turned an obsession with ‘ultra-running’ into Tribe – a natural sports nutrition brand that has taken the market by storm and has subsequently built a community of avid sportsman behind them. Those in the Tribe community are only too aware of the monthly running events that they put on, partnering with some of the best brands there are. Ask Rob the honest truths that led him to quitting his corporate job, starting Tribe and building the community that devoutly follows them.
- Sam Moyo founder of Morning Gloryville: Since starting in 2013, Sam has created a global community of events that empower people to “rave your way into the day!”. These 6.30am sober raves have started a movement that has seen them host events beyond the UK – with events all over Europe, the States and Internationally (Sydney, Tokyo, India and Singapore!). How did the idea start? How did Sam create the momentum and when did she know there was a global community of sober ravers wanting to get in on the action?
- Benjamin Lebus founder of MOB Kitchen: What started as an idea of creating videos in his university student house, is now the ever-moreish Mob Kitchen, who have now amassed over 100k followers. These are food videos with a difference though. No food porn. No molten, double deep-fried cheese. No triple chocolate brownies drenched in peanut butter – rather MOB Kitchen makes food you’ll actually make and all for under a tenner. As a result, Ben has created an online community that are actually engaged with their content – not an easy feat in today’s digital world. When do you know you can turn passion into business when your community is online?
The reason why we call our events the Honest Truths, is we want to strip back any illusions about building a business or passion project. Our speakers will share with you both the highs and the lows, whilst you can ask the questions that you really want to know the honest truths to.
