A whimsey-free meeting with 21 members present and 1 guest. New member Rupert gave an interesting first-time 10-minute presentation. First time for us, he’s clearly an expert at this kind of thing!
Although heralding as the pressing prospect of the Winter spirits were raised by the Meeting, which had a theme of quotes from the movies and which elicited a great deal of interest and research from the Members and in addition, once the dawn had broken, it turned out to be a beautiful sunny morning.
On a day which I anticipate will be the last weekly meeting where the school holidays impinge we were 20 Members and 1 visitor; Tim Heard who has made an application to join.
A bright sunny morning and despite 5 members being on holiday the turnout was 19 and 2 visitors. We have produced good turnouts throughout the holiday period and visitors also. We had a new visitor today, Tim Heard who has expressed interest in joining.
It might have been dull outside but the place was positively overflowing, resulting in 24 Members being present and a repeat visitor Mike Feuer whose application to join was accepted by the committee meeting that followed the main meeting – congratulations Mike.
Numbers still up despite the holiday season, 18 Members and 3 visitors. We might get a new member, fingers crossed.
Finally, after several weeks, we were confronted with grey skies and drizzle. Despite this and the holiday season there were 19 Members present and 4 visitors. The pre-meeting networking was very much an exercise in getting to know our visitors in readiness for the meeting.
The second summer holiday Thursday and we got a turnout of 24 members. A very good effort from those members not on holiday.
Multitasking abounded, Scott Griffiths not only dealt with his meeting secretary’s obligations but also delivered the Ed Slot. I, as Chairman, also stood in for David Plumley as Education and Development Officer in introducing both the Ed Slot and the 10 minute Presentation.
Singing members, floral displays, repeat visitors, good business passed and lots of new opportunities for new business. What more could you ask for from a business networking meeting?!
