Why Intent?

What we are (and aren't)


Intent Group was created on the back of 40+ years working in B2B networking and events, exploring what works and what doesn't. We wanted to offer a new approach to high value networking and knowledge sharing that avoids the bits people find annoying about traditional conferences / expos whilst adding some fresh ideas for genuinely collaborative collective intelligence networks. 

Unlike a typical conference where:

  • It's hard to identify (let alone meet) new people at your level: connections are made by luck and you tend to see the same faces

  • Content tends to be one-way, passive, generic and, all too often, quite promotional without addressing participants' interests

  • There are often more non-practitioners than practitioners

  • You don't know what others' experience or interests are so you could be sitting right next to a potentially useful connection without ever knowing it

The Intent Group approach


  • We only invite influential executives to be part of the network

  • Year-round introductions made based on shared interests and challenges

  • Demand-driven, member-led custom member meetings for genuine sharing and interaction

  • Find solutions to and recommendations for specific challenges through member referrals

  • A relaxed approach in stimulating surroundings
