Chairman’s Business Networking Blog, Thursday 24th July 2014.
24/7, as it was christened, produced a good turnout 22 members and 3 guests. Darryl Oung, who advises the construction industry on Sub Contracts and Sub Contractors, Kudzai Sibanda from Recruitment Health Care and for the second time Alex Pink who produces online video/film. With 1 or 2 on holiday and Graham Wright emailing us that he was approaching recovery we continued with good attendance as last week.
Guest presenter of the Ed Slot was Brian Painter, who compared the various ways of getting new business and in particular emphasised the value of person recommendation, particularly through networking.

Fresh back from holiday, Nige Kirby presented the Ed Slot which was all about presenting yourself. The 60 round and the 10 minute slot are all about preparation. It involves confidence, eye contact, passion and finally, please remember to smile!!

Several returning from holiday produced 18 members and 3 guests. Ian Stanley for the last time as he was inducted as a new member and the Chrises Vernon who have applied to join. They have been accepted by the committee and therefore will be members next week. With Ian Nicholson’s announcement that he might have found a photographer, let’s keep up the good work in attracting visitors and therefore potentially new members, well done everybody.

David Plumley produced an Ed Slot that warned us of our overall demeanour in dealing with our clients, to be positive (no moaning) and to go the extra mile.

21 in all present including 2 visitors, Lewis Hackney for the second time clutching a membership application form, we hope to induct him next week and Ian Stanley who specialises in removal and storage, who was here for the first time and was threatening to turn up next week.
Nige Kirby used the Ed Slot to tell poignant little story. The desire to do something good to help our fellow man was at the heart of the tale and also how we should approach our networking. We should be looking for referrals for each other ahead of anything else and if we all do this we will all of course receive the level of referrals that will make our membership at EBF worthwhile.
