The Competition is designed to stimulate  thinking, challenge your ideas and enrich your life, personally and professionally.  The conversations that result from these events are  inspiring and fun!


Apart from the competition, there is time for plenty of conversation started by the YTM Conversation Cards and of course, enjoyment of a 2-course dinner.  After all... 

Here is the first ever AWARDS Dinner held in 2016


Sharing a meal together. Extending hospitality… In many cultures, these are expressions of trust and a commitment to amnesty and good faith. For most of us, meals are times for conversation and relationship building. So, our progressive dinners build on these characteristics because they express our belief that networking is about building relationships, not about sales.


  • An opportunity to eat and enjoy relaxed, meaningful conversation with matched business people.

  • Introductions to other guests with whom you have common interests.
  • Structured conversations using special YTM Conversation Card decks that help you to give and receive value.
  • Opportunities for casual conversation with like-minded people.
  • Enjoyable, yet efficient networking opportunities and excellent speakers.


What Happens at a “Progressive Dinner” Event? 

  • 3 hours of strategic conversations that give you plenty of time to talk and listen to others + a delicious 2-course meal + informative speakers.
  • Open networking with your hosts, primed to make helpful introductions and ensure you aren’t standing by yourself.
  • 2 x tables of 6-8 strategically matched, like-minded business owners (you change tables after the main course).
  • YTM’s unique Conversation Starter cards to create meaningful timed discussions (everyone gets a chance to participate).
  • Relaxed, yet structured format.
  • An informative and relevant speaker or panel to answer questions and provide ideas for your business.
