Tips for starting your own meetup group

I started the Wellington Marketing Meetup 6 months ago. The group has grown rapidly to 350+ members. Our upcoming February event at Xero filled in under 5 hours. It’s been a hugely rewarding experience. I’ve loved meeting other marketing geeks!

Wellington now has a Marketing Meetup!

As I mentioned in my last post I’ve decided to start a Wellington Marketing Meetup. It’s been a thought I’ve had for a while but was always concerned I wouldn’t be able to sustain it alone. Luckily there’s an awesome marketing community in Wellington so I have a team of helpers signed up to help me bring this idea to life.
To those people who have already offered help, ideas and venues, thank you. You have given me the motivation to get this thing started and I’m sure you’ll help greatly in keeping it going.
If you’re interested in marketing and based in Wellington make sure you sign up to the group. We’re hoping to have the first event in 4-6 weeks so make sure you’re in the loop.

Since starting at SilverStripe I’ve seen how these groups provide huge benefits. As well as the knowledge sharing and networks, they’re great environments for newer practitioners to speak.
