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.
A dull miserable morning in sharp contrast to 23 bright and happy members who were all assembled by 7.30am.
Ben Golding was back after his house move. Getting the 60 second round presentation right was his theme pointing out the need to make sure you stick to the 60 seconds if for no other reason than to show respect to other members. Always practice your presentation. This will ensure content is put over well as well as getting the timing right. If we follow Ben’s advice the meeting will flow and finish in good time.
The 60 Second Round
With Ben Golding’s admonitions ringing in our ears we kept it tight.
Scott Griffiths was awarding the Oscar and also devoted his presentation to explain about “live chat” on the website. Useful.
Sarah Steel addressed us from her new office at The Hermitage; all white and pristine (the room that is). Did you know it’s pension awareness week coming up?
Matt Barry is also back in his office with all staff present. Talking of presents…… That’s what he bought for all of his staff as a starting off
Howard Bullock has a client who has just sold his business. Howard is helping him to invest the proceeds.
Richard Reed did anyone notice that he was wearing his badge. I think he deserves extra points for the effort.
Colin O’Connor has a special September offer! Free Health and Safety review…..take him up on it!!!
Toby Acton is still deep diving but is now doing it in order to sell light bulbs (Road to Damascus stuff) to his disciples.
Simon Essex is putting recruitment to one side for the moment and promoting “The Greenhouse” selling plants and wellbeing. He showed us the shop on-screen and invited us to visit. We should all try….but not all at the same time.
Ben Golding looked up an old friend from 26 years back. And what did he do? He sold her on Utility Warehouse saving her £100.00 per month. Of far more importance, the Piggy is back.
Undeterred by the appearance of said pig Terry Maylin had the Mayor of Gants Hill make him up some leaflets. These leaflets have already netted Terry two referrals, a good double act.
So who won the Oscar? Ben Golding of course, who could resist a good reunion and a pink pig. Well, not Scott Griffiths.
Meeting Secretaries Report
In his guise as Meeting Secretary, Scott Griffiths had more good news for us. This month £50,666.00 worth of business was recorded, an average referral being worth £840.00.
10-minute presentation by Vincent Goode
Vincent Goode gave us a slide show. It started with Vincent as a schoolboy which showed him in a blazer and also wearing hair. Subsequent imagery of an adolescent Vince revealed him with Andrew Ridgely locks. We had all just about recovered from the display of his barnet when the slide show came to the business end of things. We saw a great representation of his product.
Well presented and so informative that we were all too stunned to ask any questions. Over recent months he has demonstrated great acumen in adapting to the changed situation brought on by the virus. Excellent and cuddly!
With a Referrals Round that reflected good business being passed the meeting came to a close in good time.
