Prospect of new day, a fresh try and a bit of magic – Exeter Business Network October event

October 11, 2012

“I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere” J.B Priestley – discovered Oxygen 

The Exeter Business Network on 10/10/12  at Exeter Racecourse saw a room full of decision makers do a great job of raising their visibility, enhancing their credibility and increasing their profitability.

A fabulous seminar hosted by Belinda Newton – The HR Dept took a journey through the legislation that you need to be aware of, the best practise to put in place to ensure that you recruit, induct, train and look after your people and what to do if things go wrong.  With a number of case studies there was a great sharing of experiences and in depth discussion.  For more details to see if you are in the prevention camp or the cure camp when it comes to your people – click here

Numerous connections, conversations and collaborations undertaken that lead to great business relationships!  I cannot thank Nigel Wilkinson of WNW Design enough for the testimonial he gave about securing lunches and membership for the next 18 years as a result of his networking with Exeter Business Network!

A huge thank you to Keryn and Robin for a fabulous 10 minutes talking about their Paralympics experience – full of humour and insight in to the GB Blind football teams Paralympic tournament.  The Olympic village anecdotes well what goes on tour…..

As one of the only amateur teams in the games to reach 7th place and get a point from Argentina – the only English/GB football team to have done so for 16 years – there is a great opportunity to support them for the European, World and next Paralympics.
