The Expert Economy


If you’re an Expert Entrepreneur looking to learn how to maximise your business and meet others on the same journey as you, you’re in the right place. Our events are a combination of Networking and Learning designed especially for those who sell their expertise as a service.


12:3014:00 GMT


Events are held via Zoom


30-mins in Breakout Rooms

Be Real. Create Space. Come in Service.

Get together with other like-minded entrepreneurs to share insights and expertise and make new friends.

The road as an Expert Entrepreneur is never easy and often we appear as the ‘odd one out’ amongst our family and friends. It can often be hard for us to find the support we need, especially when the general marketing principles do not apply.

Our networking event is designed to give you the support and momentum you need to explore and build your business. We meet virtually, via Zoom, for 90-minute on a Friday lunchtime once a fortnight.

We’ve chosen Friday lunchtime because if you were working with a team, you’d probably be celebrating the end of your week by going out for lunch – and thats the feel we want to create. This is your chance to reflect on the week, share your progress with others who understand how momentous your accomplishments are, and glean new learning you can take with you into the weekend to start your Monday fresh and bright.

Sue Ingram – How to hire a virtual team

This week, our Guest Speaker is Sue Ingram.

We’ve all heard the saying that no man is an island! We’ve all heard the advice to build a team and outsource the tasks within your business that don’t depend on you or don’t do tasks that you could pay someone else to do cheaper than your billable rate.

That’s all very well, but how do you find the right person? The person you can rely on to sort the little details, understand your big picture and always have your back?

In this talk, HR specialist Sue Ingram will share the vital insights into the recruitment process that ensure you find the right person first time!

Each event is made up of a combination of elements. We like to mix it up but also have some predictability so you know what to expect. Each element has been created to help you supercharge your business and get the very most out of our time together. Hover over the images to discover what we do.

A big thank you to Naomi for putting on this day. It reminded me of all the actions I need to be doing each month to keep my business on track. It’s good to have these things reinforced as it so easy to get caught up in things that don’t matter. Really valuable – and important – day

Angela Sims, Red Tulip

I’ve really enjoyed The Expert Economy networking events. There’s a wide variety of businesses to network with and one of the appealing things is the fact that it’s businesses from all over the country (even some international). Most other networking events are local so that makes a nice change. There are good expert speaker presentations as well as good networking opportunities in smaller breakout groups. Well run event, would definitely recommend.

Isi Dixon, Productivity Expert

Great first event from the Expert Economy.

Naomi Johnson was the host and she delivered a well structured and enjoyable meeting with like-minded businesses joining to discuss all things LinkedIn and what not to do when connecting.
The guest speaker was Daniel Disney from the daily sales and author of the million-pound LinkedIn message – I’ve been following Daniel for some time now and always enjoy his content and advice on social selling and he never fails to deliver a great talk.”

Paul Betts, Activ Business Solutions Ltd

Enjoyable event and the beginning of many new relationships – great!

Steve Wild, A4 Plus Limited

I really enjoyed connecting with other entrepreneurs and focusing again on a marketing strategy that works for entrepreneurs like me. I learned lots from the other attendees. It has reinvigorated me and given me the inspiration to keep going

Yvonne Omini – Dream Activator 

Great meeting with interesting people to talk to in the breakout rooms and a chance to learn more about LinkedIn.

Treena Maun, The Phobia Lady

The road less travelled – an introduction to the Expert Economy

Making the leap to self-employment is a brave one – and one few people ever take! The road, however, is never straight. As much as we start with a clear goal, good intentions, and big ambitions, it’s not often things will go to plan. In this talk, Naomi will take through some of the common hurdles you’re need to overcome and why she believes an Expert Entrepreneur is very different to other types of entrepreneurship.
