Chairman’s Business Networking Blog, Thursday 23rd June 2016
The rain was biblical in proportions as if the Gods were sneering at British humans holding something called a referendum and daring to think it might be important.
23 people fought through the deluge to Mary Green Manor for something far more important……a meeting of EBF.
David Plumley was held up by the deluge but arrived in time to deliver an Education slot that drew our attention to the significance of flyers that come through our door from tradesmen seeking business. They are an ideal source of potential visitors. So next week bring along all relevant flyers and we will look at them collectively. I think David was unsure of the reception he was likely to get, as he delivered his homily from the stairs. That or he was still badly affected by the floods!!!
The fate of the nation was also given passing reference in the 60 second round.
Dean mixed it up with the “Euros” which was far more interesting. Alan Shaw, after asking to be referred to Funeral Parlours uttered the memorable “……….euuuuuuuu….” and then sat down. Single handedly he carried the School of Whimsy this week.
Jo Jones is still looking for someone to massage on a Wednesday……come on guys!!!!!
Marcelle showed us a diamond the size of a tennis ball; Michael Adelissi maintained the sporting theme ,referring to Boxing but this was in relation to pipes in a wet room.
Paul Booth won the Oscar because he gave everyone Booth and Co. pens. This was not a prop……just simple bribery.
The numbers were good this week; in excess of £10,000 business recorded and 24 referrals.
There will be a new synergy team sexily named “Creative and Tech”. It will meet on the first Thursday of the month after our breakfast meeting. If you aspire to be either creative or tech come along….why not come along anyway!!!!
The stand in for the Ten minute presentation was none other than the star of the naughty corner, Howard Bullock. His grasp of his business and the services offered was vastly superior to his grasp of the projecting hardware but there had been a lot of rain and his technical assistant, the rain affected Plumley, were relevant factors. Good clear financial advice as always.
For those of you who have not done so yet check my email on the visit to Hyde Hall and try to be there.
I’m missing you already….I’ll see you in two weeks time.
