Each Rural Business Network Hub is run by a team of 5-8 individuals that form the Committee. The Committee plan the meetings, arrange the speakers and welcome new attendees. Committees are supported by a National Coordinator that provides logistical and marketing support to enable the local organisers to achieve maximum impact with their planning efforts.
The meetings are arranged so that attendees are seated in a ‘café style’ arrangement. The purpose of this style is to create discussion both during the meeting and afterwards. At the end of the presentation there is an open question and answer session with the speaker, or one or two questions relating to the topic are put to the audience to discuss with their tables once the speaker has finished.
