Martin Crockett and Sandra Wright prepare for this morning’s Business @ Breakfast networking event at Fresha on Sowton Industrial Estate, reflecting on what might be…
You never know what you’re going to find when you attend a breakfast networking event… but it starts well if there are a bunch of friendly faces to welcome you, especially at 7:00 on a dark winter morning!
I’ve known Martin for a few months and appreciative of my story telling abilities he invited me to become Business @ Breakfast’s Group Marketing Executive… well who could resist that title and the salary package… what there is none! Are they breaching a European regulation or two? Best ask Jacqui Cousins…
Jacqui’s runs Belvedere HR and funnily enough was talking about exactly that after the individual 2 minute presentations everyone gives as part of the networking breakfast.
Her presentation was very interesting to those who employ or are thinking of employing people… to hear that in France the regulations are even tighter than they are in the UK when it comes to trying to dismiss someone who isn’t cutting the mustard… especially when it’s grapes they are suppose to be harvesting!
All joking apart, Jacqui is happy to offer a FREE initial consultation, face to face or over the phone, to determine if she can offer a solution to your HR problem, call her 01392 688659.
Business @ Breakfast events start at 7am, an informal chat with other attendees over a nice warming brew. And is wrapped up by 8:30am so business owners can get to their first appointment without interfering with the normal working day.
(Talking of being warm, Business @ Breakfast’s charity this year is the YMCA Exeter… don’t forget to join in / sponsor their Sleep Easy event on 4th March 2017.)
Meeting up with other business owners on a regular basis has many benefits, some of which are:
• It can be lonely peddling your own canoe and it helps to be around like minded individuals.
• Meeting on a regular basis builds relationships. People do business with those they know, like and trust.
• Group members become your extended sales force. When they hear about an opportunity then they can pass it over to you if they know what you do… and trust you can deliver.
When Sandra announced my new “executive” role I explained that what I needed was the group’s help to capture their stories because it is from that energy that others will be attracted to come and visit.
Ian Smith from Winning Tenders was first to put his hand up…
