I loved it personally. Would be keen for more boat action. The beer at the end was a lovely addition.

Reply with your instagram handle and send a follow request to the instagram account so we can add you.

  • You can organize an exclusive tour around your business premises so people can see the quality of work you deliver.
  • You can create a special offer such as a discount. This can create an immediate return on investment, earning your membership fee back.
What should I do to gift a Reader Membership to someone?

You can buy the membership online through our sales page and you send an email to with the name, email address and Instagram handle of the new member.

How can I promote my business within the private membership group?

Create a specific promotion which is exclusive to our members. This can be a special invitation to your event or a special offer.

When you have a special invitation or offer prepared, you present it to us via We will present it in the Private Member Area as a post with the applicable image and caption, both delivered to us by you.

e invitation or offer must be exclusive to Islander Members. If it is an invite to a publicly promoted event, there must be an exclusive benefit – such as a discount, an extra reward or special treatment – for Islander Members. Should you choose to repeat a similar action. E.g: 50% off our wellness sessions for Islanders. We maintain the right to limit your special offer / invitation to one post a month. This is to avoid the community profile to be swamped with daily promo posts from the same member.

What is an INIP?

Our monthly Islander Networking and Inspiration Party (INIP) takes place on every first working day of the month (except in July and August). This is a great opportunity to personally meet other business and reader members. Jens and the team are always there and we’re full of creative and commercial ideas!

What does it mean to be an INIP host?

Hosting the INIP means you can place a roll up banner and/or TV screen and make a speech or presentation. All logistics involved are to be organised by the host. We send out and INIP invitation to all our (close to 2000) contacts in which we include a short blurb of the host.
