Further cause for celebration was that Ben Golding was in his seat as education and development officer and he delivered the Ed slot.. His focus was on Colchester as a Roman town. Known for viaducts, sewage(the disposal of the same) and wine, the Romans early development as an empire with some sophistication was based on the fact that they worked to a system. We should carry this over into our business. Plan meetings, plan work schedules plan and your networking.
The 60 Second Round
Scott Griffiths was adjudicating the Oscar and immediately latched on to the Ed slot by affirming his commitment to checklists in his working process. He loves lists!
Emma Taylor celebrated her acceptance as a member by producing a poem glorifying the home, or rather homes, which of course she sells
Richard Reed also picked up on the Ed slot by referencing the fact that he had a shop in Colchester when he first entered the travel industry
For the busy executive, dictating a record of meetings can be typed up by Tina Walker thereby saving time which is of such importance in business.
Jane Malyon showed us a box as a prop. It’s what she packs her goodies into. She felt obliged to remind us all that mother’s day was fast approaching… Can’t think why.
John Freeman have been working on Sarah Steel’s bathroom and declared himself nearly finished. Sarah Steele immediately followed him looking well-scrubbed clearly evidencing the veracity of John Freeman’s previous statement.
James Humphreys warned of undervaluing what you insure which has the inevitable consequence of reducing how much you will be paid on any claim.
Nick Cooke had mentioned last week about a large caravan on stilts with the gaps filled in. He expanded further on the problems that this building suffered from, namely asbestos. The house added no value whatsoever to the value of the land it stood on
Neil Bellham has worked himself to a standstill but has been pretty light on his feet in arranging a holiday for himself and, so he assured us, his wife
Colin O’Connor explained the importance of training in relation to health and safety, he explained his role in dealing with this and what he was looking for so far as clients were concerned in relation to such training. Worthy of the Oscar which was awarded to him by Scott.
