(2) Arrange functions for less than 15 folks to affix, when each and every 3 weeks, in a friendly pub environment
(3) Have an introduction of each individual at the start, with what they can assist with, and the things they are searching for
This discourages power-networkers, salespeople, these desirous to have language exchange or perhaps a great rogering, etc.
