Report from Oscar’s celebratory lunch in Bristol

October 17, 2013
“Success is a science; if you have the conditions, you get the result” – Oscar Wilde born 16/10/1854 – a birthday celebrated at the Bristol Business Network event yesterday at Mercure Holland House Hotel.
Numerous decision makers from locally based businesses enthusiastically participated in an event full of conversations, connections and collaborations……

Followed by a very entertaining and informative 10 minutes from Sam Talby – FRP Advisory – covering everything from death, resurrection, Phoenix, Henry Ford, Walt Disney, corporate cliches (ramp it up, rightsizing to name but 2), talking to the right person at the right time, ICAEW, the benefits of membership(!), enjoyment and the future purchase of a new velvet jacket!  Thoroughly enjoyed by all!!

Whether it was the level of conversation or the fact that everyone was so engaged during the whole event – both brilliant…..but no mobile devices made any noise……

A little bit of your time
To tell you I must
Some more about The Jessie May Trust
The Jessie May Trust – Created by a family for families
Jessica May died at home aged 4 1/2 months surrounded by her family and supported by a team of nurses. Her parents created Jessie May to ensure that every child who is not expected to reach adulthood receives nursing care within the home. Since 1996 we have been providing this care, free of charge, in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.

Please feel free to donate – perhaps things money can’t buy, fine dining, , weekend breaks, holidays, cars, gifts, fine wine, whisky, champagne, hampers, your expertise –whatever you can will be fantastic! There will be a Raffle at the December event and I will be blogging* about the prizes that are donated.
