It was bright and sunny. We, (22 of us) were bright and sunny and our visitor Sarah Steel seemed pretty chipper. What better way to start our weekly meeting.
The Performance League
The winner for the month of June with 272 points was Matt Barry. He just edged out Paul Booth who had 271 points, well done both. Scott Griffiths not only presented the statistics to confirm Matt’s victory but he revealed 50 referrals for the month and an amount still to be finalised in excess of £53,000 business recorded. Precise figures will be available next week.
How often do you buy a bottle of wine for a client as a gift asked Howard Bullock. He suggested this gesture should be elevated with a WOW factor that will make not only the client but also his close associates want to know more about you. It does, however, mean more effort being made to catch the right moment with the particular client. His example only involved as a gift of 6 golf balls but it was arranged and made a gift on the Tee of the water hole on a particular golf course where he new his client due to play. An interesting idea that stayed with us for the rest of the meeting.
The 60 Second Round
Howard Bullock also was first up this week after being last week Oscar Winner, he has picked up two clients this week. Others very busy this week included Kieran Peaty, Paul Dulieu and John Freeman.
Dean Caldon has also been kept on his toes by the Housing market, he also spoke about UPRNs Who will be the first, other than Dean, to confirm what this initialisation stands for in the comments to this Blog. It goes without saying that Alan Moller and Mason Edwards are also run off their feet. Alan Moller was also able to celebrate a £20.00 tip received on a job this week.
Things are starting to wake up for Richard Reed as he looks towards next year for booking; try the railway as a basis for travelling for your next vacation.
Stuart Smallcombe stated that with home working, VOIP has advanced two years in three months.
Paul Dulieu compared himself to a Swiss Army Knife which means that he is the man to go to if your horse has a stone in its hoof.
Scott Griffiths has been on an anti-bribery and corruption course. The Bribery Act and restrictions imposed by it appear in quite a few of my Contracts of Employment but whether this means a gift of golf balls on the 7th Tee would be in breach of anything will only be made clear if you consult me for what would be a very reasonable fee.
Howard’s choice for the Oscar was none of the above but Simon Essex who pointed out the high level of applications and how experienced personnel are available to fill the positions currently out there.
10-minute presentation by Tina Walker
Tina produced a very slick presentation by way of slides that perhaps surpassed any of her previous efforts as she successfully laid out before us the full extent of her areas of operation. She will get more work as a result of a job well done.
Referrals and Testimonials
A lively round that produced quite a few referrals and thanks for the money. Tina understandably received verbal testimonial from many of us who she has helped over the years.
We hope to have our visitor return next week.
As always, a fantastic meeting with heaps of positivity and lots of food for thought. Tina’s 10 minute slot was so well received in these quarters that she’s going to be doing some work for me, and Howard’s education slot was so inspiring that I’m off to buy myself some golf racquets. Simon was a worthy Oscar winner too and great to see that post furlough, things are on the up for him. Keep safe and well everyone. I’m off to open a bottle of wine with my bare hands.
A very concise and comprehensive 10 minutes from Tina, those of us who have benefited from her services speak most highly of her. Our visitor, Sarah was a welcome addition to our meeting, I hope she becomes a member. I’m BBQing this weekend, umbrellas at the ready! See you next week.
Great meeting this morning and fantastic presentation from Tina.
Loved Howard’s Ed slot too!!
Looking forward to seeing you all next week 😁
A truly excellent meeting once again. A first class ten minute presentation from our virtual secretary Tina and a clever Ed Slot from our financial advisor Howard. Not to mention the impeccably well orchestrated direction exercised by Aidan our Chairman and Scott our Meeting Secretary and everyone else who has a hand in putting it all together so well.
Glad to be back after last week’s absence, great 10 minute presentation Tina too. What’s even better is our increasing monthly figures, enjoy your weekend all!
Great meeting and banter as always, great Ed Slot Howard. Nice to see Sarah our visitor let’s hope she is thinking of joining our fab group. Have a good weekend and stay safe.
