A good turnout on a dank and dark morning produced 24 Members including recent acquisition Toby Acton and two guests.
This week was a slightly shortened meeting to accommodate a full half an hour presentation by Rupert Miles on his last meeting with this group.
The 60 Second Round
We went straight into the 60 Second Round. There was generally a Christmassy trading type of feel about how the business that was currently being produced. Marcelle Saad has started to get busy with a range of jewellery type items with Christmas approaching.
Tina Walker mentioned the “C” word. Matt Barry was anticipating Christmas as being very very busy for him. Saj Sreedharan has been involved with Christmas decorations and lots of orders with a Christmassy feel. Vincent the Mayor or Gants Hill was looking to seasonal non-denominational cards which really means he is looking to Christmas.
Brian Painter feels he can deal with most phobias and the most recent challenge to him has been an air hostess with a fear of flying. I am considering consulting him over my phobia regarding Christmas Day.
Other contributions included the Naughty Corner, absent Stuart Smallcombe but by way of apparent recent induction, Vincent Goode who was trying his best to be Naughty. Howard Bullock outdid any naughtiness by declaring his washing machine has broken down and there was no apparent relief until Monday of next week. He had even gone down to wearing his lucky underpants but only for four for 4 days. To assist another member of the Naughty Corner Paul Booth, he pretended to look like an Ostrich and stuck his head between his knees which appeared to most of us to be a rather unpleasant piece of co-operation. Save for Brian Painter the School of Whimsey was absent. Apart from Allan Moller demonstrating an outside light which apparently has a sensor and looks different from normal ones and can be available through Alan doing whatever it does very well. I suppose that’s Whimsey.
Toby Acton gave his first 60 seconds as a fully-fledged member. He will be inducted next week.
The winner of the Oscar was Marcelle as awarded by Tina because of all of the various things she was selling was with Christmas in mind.

Rupert Miles presentation.
One half an hour produced a clear indication of Rupert’s methods and approach, with a presentation that included a Flip Chart and some quizzes and questions of the members to show that we are a stupid as a lot of people that go to Rupert’s Seminars. It was a very useful insight into sales techniques and business related to this.
It was as well presented as we would have expected from someone who does it as a job but Rupert has an excellent technique and put over his points very effectively.
The group all wish Rupert success in the future and thank him for his contribution to the group during his short membership was cut short by the expansion of his business, hopefully partly through EBF.
Awesome presentation from Rupert – the energy and enthusiasm was first rate!
Yes excellent presentation by Rupert, sorry to see him leave the group due to his success in building his business!
looking forward to getting to know the new members Toby and Simon and hopefully Neil !
What a great atmosphere with a full house, sorry to see you go Rupert but wish you all the very best. Congratulations to the new members too, have a great weekend all!
well done Rupert for a great presentation and thank you for the book, and yes i echo everyone else’s comments that it’s a shame to see you go, but i wish you all the best with your expanding business. Fun lively meeting as always, have a good weekend all and see you next week.
If you havent already been to one of Ruperts free seminars then i’d strongly urge you to go. They are great – everyone learns something…
Definitely second that!
Sorry to see you go Rupert, but you’re leaving for the right reasons, onward and upwards!
Great presentation from Rupert, I am personally full of melancholy that he is leaving, he added a bit of posh to the group which, with respect to my friend Toby, won’t be echoed by him joining. Welcome Toby! Looking forward to seeing you inducted next week. Thank you also to the Naughty Corner for making me feel welcome, apart from Howard likening my temporary inclusion to having soggy socks and squelchy boots… not sure if that was a compliment.
Sorry – I don’t do posh. The again, it is all relative 😉
Great vibe to the mtg this week. After seeing Ruperts presentation those of you who have not had the good fortune to attend one of his seminars should now be suitable encouraged to do so. Welcoe to Toby, looking forward to Simon joining us in the new year and perhaps Neil also.
A fine meeting, good to see new lifeblood in the group and sorry to see Rupert leave, liked his presentation.
Great meeting with high energy. Sad to see Rupert departing us, and many thanks for the submarine crash course. Nice to see Toby joining us. See everyone next week.
Thoroughly enjoyable meeting with a great presentation from Rupert.
Thanks to Rupert for leaving us with the gift of knowledge! Eye-opening presentation and I left with lots of ideas scribbled down to help improve my sales process. Warm welcome to Toby too. See you all next week.
Great to finally be on board – looking forward to getting to know everyone. Fantastic presentation by Rupert – a real natural talent!
Another great meeting. Thank you to Rupert for his fab presentation. Welcome to Toby who joined too. See you all Thursday.
