In the business world, lunch time is often a time when business relationships are solidified, sales are made, insight is shared, and new partnerships are born. Traditionally, this involved two or more business people meeting at a restaurant. However, today’s business world doesn’t always allow for that: Entrepreneurs halfway around the world from their colleagues can’t easily meet for lunch; small business owners are stuck at their desk while they work; freelancers may not have the hour or more it can take to drive to the restaurant and wait for the meal to arrive.
That’s where Business Lunch Club comes in.
I’ve collaborated with a colleague of mine, Heather Villa, a business coach and the owner of IAC Professionals and IAC-EZ, to create Business Lunch Club. It’s everything you get in the traditional business lunch… on Twitter! She calls it “Lunch 2.0” which I think is the perfect term!
Business Lunch Club enables business professionals who can’t get away from their desk, or who have time or distance constraints, to meet for lunch on Twitter.
Participating in Business Lunch Club is easy. Simply start a conversation with one or more of your followers, or participate in a discussion already underway. And, be sure to add the hashtags #businesslunchclub, #bizlunchclub, or #blc to your tweets to indicate that they are part of the conversation.

Let’s do lunch. And this time, it’s on Twitter!
