A somewhat election themed networking meeting today with many members making reference to the UK election in their 60 second presentations.
As expected we had a low attendance because of the half term holiday and the attendant good weather but nonetheless the meeting was lively and up to the usual EBF Meeting standards. Hopefully next week we will all be back and up to our usual numbers.
No “Official” blog recorded for todays meeting, however a special meeting as this week we’ve had 3 member Birthdays. Alan Shaws Birthday today (unknown age) as well as Matt Barrys 40th. Brian Painter was also 80 years young on Tuesday.
Brian Painter of Pilgrim Hypnotherapy (doing his best impersonation of Aidan Squire) chaired confidently, and guided us all through the proceedings.
This was a meeting to like; 28 present, a couple of inductions, plenty of referrals and a good 10 minute presentation. What’s not to like!
As I introduced the meeting up leapt at least 4 members and in unison shouted “May the fourth be with you”. It is nice to see that an American universe can be brought to earth by the English ability to pun. It bode well for the rest of the meeting, in particular knowing that Mike Rogers would be multi-tasking throughout; the air could have been electric.
Kevin Radford threatened to avoid paying excise duty on imported budgerigars and Brian Painter anticipates what happened 4 years ago on a night out.
Our “Spring Breakfast” visitors day initiative meant that we had a very lively and well attended meeting today. 29 members and 9 guests, with over £55,000 of new business recorded and 44 brand new business opportunities too
In which Alan Moller was looking for something to polish and Scott Griffiths was off with the pixels
This week we were treated to three visitors one of which was a truly inspirational guest speaker who is shortly to row around the circumference of the UK. That’s 1800 miles!
Otherwise lots of fun in todays meeting and some great new business opportunities shared too.
In which David Plumley talked of Giga Bites, Mega Bites, PUPS and Venetian Blinds became far less boring
A thought provoking education presentation about the perils of giving free advice, and then an excellent 10 minute presentation by David “Chile” Plumley from Integrate Networks. An entertaining and informative meeting with lots of good business.
20 members present, 3 Visitors, 2 Applications to join, £20,000.00 worth of business recorded at the meeting, 35 referrals given, £135,000 worth of business passed this month. A well-attended meeting with lots of referrals and business passed, new members on the horizon, what’s not to like!!!
