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.
Worldwide Handwashing Day heralded a good attendance (23) and after a bit of banter the meeting proper started with:
Nick Cooke extolled the virtues of the List. If we don’t all make them we should. Plan your day; plan your work! He even showed us one he had prepared earlier. It all looked very tidy in sharp contrast to his office visible in the background.
The 60 Second Round
Blake Hammond was last week’s Oscar winner; John Hammond the adjudicator.
Toby Acton sees a silver lining to the cloud of possible mass redundancies. More people starting up their own businesses. This will, in his assessment, benefit almost all of us and our businesses. I can drink to that.
Howard Bullock has a client retiring early aged 53. No need to explain further Howard, just marry her.
Keiron Peaty’s business celebrated its 2nd birthday in September and his review of its USB put at it’s the heart “Design”
And then there was a theme…… Christmas, aaaahhh
Simon Essex encouraged us to look to the Greenhouse for that different Christmas present….. and so the flood gates opened.
Paul Booth warned us not only of the mince pie season being with us but that Christmas was also self-assessment season.
Talking of celebrations, Ben Golding was celebrating Utility Warehouse’s Which award for utilities for 2020.
Paul Dulieu was just celebrating a fun week for him; doing his job. Now that is something to celebrate!!!
Scott Griffiths could have been reviewing his current clientele to the tune of the 12 days of Christmas; 9 clients active, 6 clients waiting, 15 in a queue.
And the Oscar went to Sarah Steel, not only because she was upbeat about a Webinar she is due to deliver next week but also I hope because she did not mention Christmas…Bah Humbug!!!
This weeks statistics and points of note
Since the start of the virtual recording of referrals/activity reports, this week we should top 1,200 for both. Good going.
Synergy Team Report
Paul Booth reported on the Finance teams actual meeting at the George and Dragon on Tuesday. Limited to 6 it was an unlimited success. If we could get 10 or 12 for the next one we could form 2 separate socially distanced ones.
10-minute presentation by Scott Griffiths
Scott Griffiths, veteran of this presentation, (roughly estimated by one esteemed member as 40 to date), did not disappoint. For newbies, his back story; for old-timers, an illustrated update of web design. All in all, as good as expected, even down to the reindeer soup. More healthy than the burger.
And of course, there were referrals aplenty… Until next week
