With certain comings and goings we maxed out at 33 today; visitors day attendee Paul Jeavons was already there when I clocked in at 6.55 am. William Verner turned up for the pre-meeting and Mike Ashworth was there for the first time.
The Performance League
Terry Maylin is out in front with 380 points followed with over 300 points by Kevin Radford, both well ahead of the pack
This week was the turn of the deep diving Toby Acton who urged us to consider outcomes when we are looking to attract new and service existing clients. Always be aware of what your client is looking to achieve.
New Member Induction & Existing Member Renewal
Terry Maylin confirmed William Verner as our most recently approved new member and he will attend at such next week.
The 60 Second Round
After two weeks the 60 second round meant just that.
Standout members this week included Howard Bullock, trend setting with a pen clipped to his T Shirt collar and David Plumley addressing us from a forest, warning of the risks of data loss and the attendant necessity of data recovery. Somehow a forest seemed appropriate whether you could see the trees or not. By way of perfect continuity Kevin Radford warned of the risk we all faced in relation to possible cyberattacks and the attendant need to insure.
Matt Barry, master of animation, relived his company’s covid lock down this year and he was matched today by Paul Dulieu celebrating the erecting of his garden office with a video showing its progress from foundation to finished article….. very impressive.
Mike Skinner produced the epithet of the week “…everyone trusts George Clooney”, Simon Essex could not resist revealing that he was said Mr Clooney’s stand in double whilst advocating matters green on behalf of the Greenhouse. Not to be outdone Sarah Bell laid claim to the Judy Dench stunt double description.
Well disciplined presentations from all members insured that Tina’s pig was almost rendered redundant. Pig Power however was maintained by the Mayor of Gants Hill with his three little piggies although it was probably on one piggy, the others being stunt doubles. You can’t keep a good pig down and sure enough Ben Golding rose to the occasion with the Utility Warehouse version.
Toby Acton challenged us by asking what a list of luminaries he recited had in common. He did not give the obvious answer…they were all men!
Paul Dulieu, addressing us from his recently constructed new office, declared Simon Essex of George Clooney fame coupled with his description of “wonder soap” and zero waste to be this week’s Oscar winner.
Meeting Secretaries Report
Scott Griffiths confirmed that new members will be posted on the web site shortly and informed us of the current statistical assessment that referrals are currently averaging £500.00 a go.
10-minute presentation by Sarah Bell
Sarah Bell produced a necessary detailed examination of exactly what she does and how she does it. It was a very accomplished presentation and out of this world as a maiden voyage. Judy Dench would have been proud. In a society when acronyms and initialisations abound she appears to cope remarkably well with a profession that has more than its fair share.
Great meeting and I really enjoyed Sarah’s 10 minutes. Well deserved Oscar win by Lord Simon of Essex
another awesome meeting – providing plenty of inspiration and motivation for the week ahead. well done Sarah on the 10mins (insightful and insopiring as ever) and Toby on the ed slot!
Another great meeting with Toby’s ed slot helping to refocus on the outcomes when meeting with clients. Outcomes is a I’ve been used to in my profession and the reminder is always good. It’s great to have new members confirmed.
I really enjoyed delivering my 10 minutes and I hope it gave everyone an insight into the fundamental principles and services that autism act provides.
Great meeting! Really enjoyed Toby’s Ed Slot and Sarah’s presentation was fantastic!!
Looking forward to seeing you all next week!!
Power to the pig!!! 🐷
Great Meeting and a high-quality 10-minute presentation from Sarah Bell- well done Sarah, you have come a long way in a year! Good to see two more visitors and let’s look forward to an application to join our merry band!
As always, an excellent meeting with a fabulous turnout, a super Ed slot by Toby and a really insightful 10 minutes by Sarah Bell. EBF is a real highlight of my working week.
A very impressive 10mts from Sarah Bell and thought provoking “Ed Slot” from Toby. Considering the restrictive times we are operating within those leader scores are brilliant from Terry and Kevin, well done guys.
Our usual high standards from all the 60 seconds and a great meeting.
Well done to all those who made this another stonking meeting. Oink oink.
Great meeting, very thought provoking.
Who would dare to exceed 60 seconds after Aidan’s stern warning?! Clearly, it was a good meeting, the time passed so quickly. A well prepared and delivered presentation from Sarah. Toby reminded us that customers/clients are interested in the benefits and not the techie stuff.
Great meeting. Sarah ten minutes was excellent. Toby’s education made you think about how you approach clients. Well done Simon on the Oscar
Great ed slot Toby, and so vital to bear in mind when selling! And always impressed by Sarah Bells work and enthusiasm for her clear passion!
Great 10 presentation Sarah B and great Ed Slot Toby. Brilliant meeting as always.
Another week, another great meeting! Sarah, your presentation was brilliant and the work you do is truely inspiring. Well done Toby with the Ed-slot too. Have a great week all.
