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 second Thursday without a meeting at Calcott Hall. The withdrawal symptoms were somewhat mitigated by two things, the weather has been glorious this week and much appreciated by those of us that are banged up; virtual meeting of 18…yes 18 Members…’ took place in the land of zoom, all of this down to the hard work of Scott Griffiths.
So, there is now the wherewithal to get your EBF shot every week and I promise to be there next week.
The advantage of working from home is that you can sneak out and take in the “rays”. I confess to this.
We all know the privilege the Royal Family enjoy and kind of accept it as part of our everyday lives. A new badge of this privilege was revealed this week, one gets access to testing for the virus which mere mortals do not get as a matter of course.
Now that you have a virtual meeting there is no need to expose yourselves unnecessary. Continue maintaining the “Peter Crouch lying horizontally” distance from your fellow man.
My customary urge is not to be so indelicate or self-promotional in my Blogs, but I feel this us be cast to the wind.
This Virus has clearly forced us, certainly those of a certain age or with certain health predispositions to recognise our mortality.
Extend that recognition by ensuring that you, your loved ones and your acquaintances join the 40% of the population who have made Wills. I have just received instructions on two Wills that are being dealt with without a meeting.
A questionnaire and a telephone call can provide me with all the instructions I need to prepare a Will and send it to the client to execute and finalise at home.
We have electronic referral slips now. Here is a chance to use them as well as ensuring proper provision is made in the event of death.
Seeing’s Believing I am expecting to scale the technological heights of Skype this coming week. Giving me instructions may then have the dubious benefit, should you choose to use it, of being face to face with me.
Dress up Friday
With more and more of us working from home I am going to try and make the effort this week. I am reliably informed that our Pilgrim does this everyday and that Richard Reed never does it.
I hope my next Blog will be fuelled by my involvement with next weeks virtual meeting. Let’s try and get more than 18 of us.
