Our regular EBF Meetings are currently cancelled due to the Coronavirus COVID19 Lockdown. We are continuing to run our networking meetings using Zoom so that we can network with each other Virtually. Please contact us if you would like to attend as a guest to one of our virtual networking meetings.
The weather broke (thunder storms!) just for the duration of the meeting. Now it’s back to warm and sticky again.
By way of 3D, Alan Moller was on our zoom screen and also parked on my drive. ( that’s all you need to know.)
At one stage we were 23 in number but without Scott Griffiths, Terry Marylin was host jointly with Tina.
Paul Dulieu’s first time and a slide show heralded a detailed examination of the positives (and potential man traps) of being your own boss. The basic message was “look after yourself” even join a networking group!! Good start Paul
The 60 Second Round
It was that Dulieu again. Last week’s Oscar Winner kicked off as usual. He’s dreaming of his hols in Devon.
Kieran Peaty produced a video showing a site clearance; if he had done the building as well we could have been able to watch the paint dry.
Simon Essex is doing freelance for Mason’s recruiting. He didn’t quite know how to designate himself with his changing circumstances. My suggestion for going forward “Simply Simon”.
Sarah Bell joined late explaining that she was experiencing a quiet time (clearly sleep-inducing).
Toby Acton is trying to get his disciples, to think “outside the box”. Paul Booth has already done that; he has found this really clever software to use with Zero which can spot unclaimed VAT. Very clever!!.
Sarah Steel is to become a star of radio with a 10-minute slot. Tell us where and when we will be there.
Kevin Radford urged us to check out insurance if we are working from home, particularly if you see clients there.
John Hammond has been engaged this week in trying to stop people with dementia escaping.
Mason Edwards has this week been faced with stupid clients and clever employees who took part in the “2 toilets race” which I will not describe further. Terry Maylin was also complaining about numpties and Alan Moller, who is constantly warning us that you can’t polish a turd also warned us to make sure we get someone who can do the job well the first time rather than charge twice for doing the job badly both times. Hiring him will achieve the former.
Pride of place as Oscar Winner went to Brian Painter who told of a light bulb moment which induced him to tread on the feet of a girl who was bemoaning the fact that her feet were too small.
This weeks statistics and points of note
Terry Maylin reported last month’s Business Recorded as £45,000.00 which was a good effort.
10-minute presentation by Sarah Steel
Sarah Steel’s debut was a very confident presentation that amply demonstrated why she is good at Webinars. Every one came away wiser,
