Poems, hula hoops and successful selling online at Exeter Business Network March event

February 5, 2014

It’s only days to go
Which is nearly 192 hours you know

Or at least 11,520 minutes of time

So here’s a simple rhyme

Sean’s reminder is here

I trust to bring you some cheer

With a super seminar with tales

On how being successful online leads to sales

Followed with lunch, 2 courses in all

With conversations to enthrall

Feel free to book here

Your attendance I hold dear

As do those who’ll be there

With opportunities to share

How exciting is this as a coincidence – on the 5th March 1963 the Hula Hoop was patented! Not the edible one the active one that you play with! Exciting because within 4 months of it’s launch 25 million were sold!

What a fantastic piece of business and I am delighted that before THE Networking lunch being held at Exeter Golf and Country club we have a seminar about Selling Successfully Online.

You may already be selling online, you may have dismissed it, you may think you have nothing to sell, you may not understand how simple it is to do – whatever stage you are at this seminar will be terrific insight in to starting, growing and benefiting from generating revenue (and profit) from online sales

Why would you want to do that?


Or….and these are old figures – average spend per e-shopper…..

And that’s just the seminar!

What follows is THE networking lunch where your conversations leading to connections and collaborations – and have done since the first event in 1993 – some people have been members since then!

Still with me? Fantastic – here are the full details for the event….

It’s on the 5th March 2014 at Exeter Golf & Country Club –  just minutes from Exeter city centre, M5, A30 and A38, so one of the most convenient locations in the South West!

Seminar before lunch Successful Selling Online – whether you do or you don’t, perhaps you should and could…

Hosted by Nigel Wilkinson – WNW Design

Many companies are put off e-commerce because

  • they are not sure how e-commerce would work for them
  • of which software they should use
  • how they will keep the website updated
  • of concerns over payment gateways, security
  • how would you handle shipping.
  • you need actual products – don’t you?

However the reality is that the High Street is in decline and your customers and competitors are going online – as pictured above
But don’t panic, help is at hand!
This seminar is aimed at those who are wondering if e-commerce is right for their business, those who are planning to start selling online but are unsure where to start and those who have taken the first steps but want e-commerce to work far more effectively.
Business owners, directors and partners as well as advisors, such as coaches, accountants or IT professionals who want to give clients informed advice would also benefit from this seminar.

Coffee and networking from 10.00am – seminar starts at 10.30am and runs until 11.45am.  Seminar is optional but why miss out on something that could add so much to your business/organisation?

Followed by THE Networking Lunch

Pre lunch drinks and informal networking from 11.45am. Sit down for 2 course lunch with coffee at 12.30pm
You sit with other decision makers – none of whom do what you do. There is a table host at each table and you have a 3 minute presentation to do for the others around your table – enthuse and inspire and build relationships. PLUS you will have a copy of the seating plan which lists everyone attending , their name, business name and what their business does and importantly what table they are sat on enabling you to network the room – more business building opportunities!

Lunch speaker – Alex Wren – Bitpod – pioneer and creator of the In a nutshell series of superb business advice videos
Lunch finishes at 2pm
