It is my hope that if I start a group, more of an expert will take the reigns and help develop the group.
I run a group here for women and I host many events. I find that the best way to do it is to not be an expert but to be a facilitator and be interested in the topic. That way you can let go of control and allow the group to morph as it will. I would suggest having a topic in case its needed, but to just establish what the others want to achieve in the first meet up.
