This week’s Essex Business Forum meeting put Christmas firmly on the agenda, as at least five members mentioned it in their 60-seconds. With 22 members in attendance, and 2 visitors, that’s a hefty percentage and places us on the slippery festive slope.
Week #2 without our regular blog author, and so Stuart Smallcombe took over as both Chairman and Blog writer. Come back Aidan, all is forgiven!
With our regular blog writer unable to “perform” this week, we “recruited” a guest author Kevin Radford to entertain us with his take on our weekly networking meeting.
Happy Halloween from the not-at-all scary members of Essex Business Forum
On a sartorial note, waistcoats were in evidence. This harbinger of winter also gives the blokes a chance to make a style statement. Kevin Brookes, back from a hard few weeks holidaying, sported a very fetching garb that was beautifully set off with his brown wool look waistcoat.
For a variety of reasons our usual, highly illustrious leadership team were all absent from the meeting so things were bound to be a bit different this morning….
22 sat down to breakfast and so the meeting commenced. There was talk of droppage and Scott Griffiths went low-tech with his (apparently!) 40th 10-minute presentation to the group
A much improved turnout showed 23 Members in attendance braving the darkness and the fog. A lively meeting with an impressive presentation from Matt “Laminate” Barry
Word must have got out that it was my turn for the 10-minute presentation, numbers were down to 18 and no visitor dared show his face. Notwithstanding, when the darkness had been driven out by daylight, we had a beautiful clear sky and bright sunshine. Those of you who did not attend missed a very lively and good-humoured meeting.
