Good attendance at 21 Members led to a lively,fun meeting with plenty of business passed around.
Scott Griffiths was the worthy winner and received his certificate. He then went on to confirm that and to pass round the statistics for the month.
David Plumley was the deliverer of the message that concentration is fundamental to your working day and promoting your business. He then gave us a number of homely tips; take breaks, drink fluids, make sure you get some fresh air during the day, jump up and down, breathe deeply, shout, sleep and have a good breakfast. Sounds like a program from a personal trainer. I am sure thinking thoughts of what we should be doing left us all with a determination to concentrate on the meeting and we did.
The 60 Second Round
Marcelle Saad was specifically pitching at the Generation Z and the Millennials. They are apparently her prime consumers. For those of you that need further clarification, Generation Z are those between 18 and 20.
John Hammond was preaching the importance of automatic door operation for the disabled.
Mason Edwards is looking for cleaning jobs in big offices that would probably need the automatic door operation that John Hammond was looking for.
John Freeman has spent a lot of time combating swollen doors not fitting into entrances but is specifically looking for established management companies as potential clients as they provide multiple opportunities for work. By this stage, Members were establishing a certain Synergy that was quite noticeable.
Scott Griffiths was pointing out the various colours that can come up on your screen, blue screen death is being replaced in frequency by a red screen. This is apparently a Google warning and he can help you to fix it if you see one.
Brian Painter is talking black, which arguably is not a colour, he has currently a client whose phobia is black. He is confident that he can show him the light and he is sure he can cure him.
David Plumley introduced to the concept of crapwear and bugs; apparently where you find one is where you will find the other and he will sort you out if you do.
Vincent Mayor of Gant Hill had a very positive message, that size matters!! In this case, in relation to quality business cards, they must be thick and rich looking and be very much a 6 sided object. “Reassuringly expensive” was his mmessageand he won the Oscar for that.
I cannot finish a report on the 60 second round without reference to Mike Rogers, he was on good form, and in true curmudgeonly fashion, pointing out who was off his christmas card list. Ultimately he encompassed all the Members bar one. David Plumley is still on his Christmas list and he got a bottle of wine for it. Very strange.
This weeks statistics and points of note

10-minute presentation by Ben Golding
Ben Golding was advancing his business of Utility Warehouse. He is a very assured performer, gave a brief run though of the business and then produced a series of questions from which Scott Griffiths was the worthy winner of a mug. Pride of Place now reserved on his mantlepiece
Prize of the day was however Terry Maylin who won the Utility Warehouse cuddly pig OF which he was very proud.
Synergy Team Report
Paul Booth reported on the Business to Business Synergy Team Meeting which, by way of the proximity of Christmas, took place in two venues; the Blue Boar in Billericay High Street, from 6pm to 7.15pm and thereafter at a local Indian Restaurant. A good time was had by all.
Next Weeks Meeting…
We are approaching the Naughty Corners Meeting but next week is an ordinary meeting. Let’s make it extraordinary with a really good attendance.
Really good meeting again, Ben’s 10 minutes was fun but also informative – I would definitely recommend Utility Warehouse. Looking forward to next week’s meeting and of course Christmas evening out. Have a great weekend all 🙂
Great Presentation Ben. following this I have now switched my Electricity over to your company and have achieved a 50% saving in my annual electric costs. I wish I’d done this a lot sooner.
Sorry that I could not be there this morning and sorry I missed your presentation Ben. I spent 4 of the early hours of the morning in A&E with my father in law…. and they didn’t even serve bacon and sausages!
It was a fun meeting, great 10mins, and maybe a question for the naughtivity if they include it, now pay attention EBF 😉
Congratulations Terry on your very own Piggy!, fun 10 minute quiz and a healthy amount passed round the table, looking forward to next week’s naughty presentation ha ha!
As you can see from the photo me and the pig are bonding
Great meeting plenty of business passed and plenty of referrals
Well done Terry for coming second in Ben’s 10 minute quiz. Fun meeting and see you all next week.
Very good and fun meeting, brilliant ten minutes Ben and excellent answers from Kevin. Nice to see Terry bonding with his own piggy. See everyone next week.
Sounds like I missed a good one. I knew Terry had sent a letter to Santa but I bet he didn’t expect his wish to come true so soon.
A fun quiz from Ben delivered in a strong no nonsense clear voice! It is said that after a time, owners tend to look like their pets.Good luck with that one,Terry!
