Whoopi, WOW’s, conversations and connections!

November 14, 2013

“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant” – R.L Stevenson born 13/11/1850

What can I say other than fantastic, terrific and tremendous!

The conversation, energy and enthusiasm that those who attended the Bristol Business Network event yesterday at Redwood Hotel & CC  was amazing and the number of relationships that were formed and developed are too numerous to mention!

A quick look at those who came will give you some idea of the opportunities that were being realised during conversations over drinks and during the 2 course served lunch.


As Nigel Reece – Cognique kindly commented on LinkedIn

“Congratulations Sean Humby and his team, for a great Business Network SW event at the Redwood Hotel and Country Club in Bristol today.  A really valuable way of generating leads and contacts in a refreshingly relaxed and informal way.”

And a big thank you to Ken Abbott (who is off to New York) – if you ever hear or ask the question “is there a quicker way to do this?” then you need to contact Ken at Redwing Excel


Whether it was the level of conversation or the fact that everyone was so engaged or was it the lack of signal!

As the number of fines decline
A little bit of your time

The Howard Wilkinson quotes (b. 13/11/1943)

“I am a firm believer that if you score one goal the other team have to score two to win”

“If they hadn’t scored, we would’ve won”

And Whoopi Goldberg (b 13/11/1949)
“I am where I am because I believe in all possibilities”

Have a great day and fabulous month
