Mastermind Groups were introduced by Napoleon Hill, the author of the 1937 book Think and Grow Rich. His vision was people working together, in groups of two or more, toward a definite purpose.

Mastermind Groups form around specific topics, goals, or business interests. Members gather on a regular basis – either in person, by phone, or over the Internet – and share their ideas and challenges, and receive feedback from group members.

The philosophy is that smaller, focused groups allow for quicker bonding, while larger groups may provide a deeper pool of experience and resources from which members can draw. Working together, participants raise the bar for all participating – inspiring and challenging each other to reach their goals and objectives.

The Knowledge Café is led by Dr. Susan Baim, Professor of Commerce at Miami University Regionals who created and facilitated the program at the Middletown Campus, drawing over 200 participants each year of the last two years. The program is patterned after a European concept of “Knowledge Cafes” designed to build a body of collective knowledge on topics of mutual interest.

RSVPs are requested, but not required, and can be made to Dr. Baim at baimsa@miamioh.edu, or by calling (513) 727-3444.

The Knowledge Café is funded by a generous grant from the Dolibois Faculty Development Fund at Miami University.

The Miami University Voice of America Learning Center is located at 7847 VOA Park Drive, at the corner of VOA Park Drive and Cox Road in West Chester.
