Worldwide Handwashing Day heralded a good attendance (23) and after a bit of banter the meeting proper started with:
The Performance League
Matt Barry is the runaway leader with 232 points, followed by Sarah Steel with Terry Maylin in 3rd spot.
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.
John Freeman is experiencing material delays but still wants quick in and outs whilst Alan Moller has had lots of jobs this week.
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
Great meeting…. useful Ed Slot from Nick, good to see visual stuff from Scott’s 10 minutes and a weel deserved Oscar award for Sarah. See y’all next week
What a great meeting plenty of banter for those that joined early enough Vince performance was priceless-can you do it again next week please Vince?
Great 10 minutes from one of the many true professionals in this group well done Scott
Well done Paul Booth in getting a live synergy meeting in before lockdown!
I’m pleased I entertained you prior to the start of the meeting! I finally got connected, then managed to accidentally kick the power cord and lost you all again. Anyway, never work with children and animals. Thank you for a fun meeting
Another Thursday morning well spent. Delighted to have won the Oscar – my list of what to say helped greatly! And to top it off, I got one of Paul B’s CHRISTMAS mince pies after the meeting! Can’t wait for next week 🙂
Excellent meeting, and really enjoyed the synergy team meeting on Tuesday.
We arrived home at 3:35 am on Thursday morning and I stayed up to attend the meeting, however, the laptop refused to let me connect to zoom despite attempting to until 7:45 am. I gave it a kick and went to bed! Hope to be with you next week, Plum willing.
Fantastic meeting! Great Education Slot from Nick, so important to write lists!! Brilliant 10 minute presentation from Scott! He sure knows his stuff!!
Well done to Sarah on winning the virtual Oscar too!!
See you next week 😁
Great meeting . Very interesting 10 minutes Scott on the new web page designs and animation. Nick’s education slot was interesting we use slack and workast to keep our list which allows us to drop pictures in as well. See you all next week in Tier 2 lockdown😃
Another great meeting, great performance from Vince, great Ed Slot from Nick and a very interesting 10 minutes from Scott lastly well done Sarah S for winning the Oscar. Have a great weekend everyone and see you all Thursday.
Sounds like I missed a very enjoyable one. Congrats to Matt & Sarah S. see you all next week.
An excellent meeting, as always. Really enjoyed the synergy meeting on Monday too. Have a good week, one and all.
Great 10 minutes and the continued chipper and chirpy attendance of the group is such a positive vibe each Thursday morning!
