Regional Development Groups are monthly events where members meet to share ideas and develop more business between themselves. For Andrew at TGS, an RDG event is essentially a one-day world tour where he gets to meet TGS members from every continent.
The question is: “Why should a TGS member take part?”
What exactly is a Regional Development Group and what’s in it for you?
What is a Regional Development Group (RDG) event?
The name is fairly self-explanatory. Once a month, members meet at the RDG event, which is essentially a short development and accountability session.
Over the course of the day, they get to connect with the global community, share their ideas in and about the network, help TGS identify new members in their area, and work with other members to develop business with one another.
Here is a sample agenda from a past event:
1. Welcome Back, Monthly Covid survey
2. Most recent new members in your area. Quality-reviewed, Paid and Publicized
3. 80/20 – How can we sharpen your pipeline?
4. Priorities – for the next month
5. Young Leader Program outline – Who can you nominate to participate?
6. Reminder for the Global Constant Audit
7. Next steps. What you do for next time/ What Andrew will do for next time
For TGS, an RDG event is attended by 10 participants from each of 7 big regions (e.g. Asia-Pacific, Africa, Middle East, Europe, the Americas, etc.) on the same day.
