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.

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

We were 25 in number including 2 visitors, Lee Scarff a plumber and Paul Keegan recruitment. Such numbers are always a prelude to a lively meeting and today was no exception.
This week’s Essex Business Forum meeting was a bustling success.
Brian Painter of Pilgrim Hypnotherapy (doing his best impersonation of Aidan Squire of Quality HR) chaired confidently, and guided us all through the proceedings.
A lively business networking meeting with lots of business passed. Somehow a theme of “dirty business” begun, and members talked about their relative dirty/clean clients and projects. Nothing naughty though thank goodness!
Review of our 2nd March meeting. All round improved presentations following our previous education, plus an entertaining and informative 10 minute presentation from Paul Booth and his nerf Gun!
Facts and Figures, and a review of the year from our Chairman. As we move into the 7th year at Essex Business Forum we remain proud of the excellent figures that we have created.
