We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

Come and move forward, open new doors meet new people and build great business relationships at the Exeter Business Network event on 5th December 2012 at Sandy Park

Business Seminar before lunch hosted by Optix Solutions

‘Generating leads with effective business blogging’

Whether you blog or you don’t this seminar will be an extremely worthwhile investment of your time

Some stats from the Jeff Bullas site demonstrate the current state of the blogging world

Followed by

THE Networking lunch

Starts at 11.45am with pre- lunch drinks and informal networking – your opportunity to talk and start to build relationships with the numerous decision makers.  Each person has a name badge along with their company/organisations name – there is nothing better that when you use a person’s name and when they use yours.

At 12.30pm everyone sits down at a table – the seating plan has been arranged so that you sit with other decision makers – none of whom do what you do.  There is a table host at each table and they are there to ensure that you get the most from the next session.

You and everyone around the table exchange business cards and the table host then starts the round of 3 minute “presentations”.  You do this only to the others around your table.  This is done as your 2 course lunch (bread rolls followed by a main course and then dessert with coffee – dietary requirements can be catered for) is served.  A multi-tasking session – listening, eating and talking!  Pens and note pads are provided to enable you to make notes
