Familiarity breeds liking – examples in spades at Exeter Business Network’s March event

March 7, 2014

“Familiarity breeds liking” Daniel Kahneman b 5/3/1938

A host of businesses and organisations attended the event on 5th March at Exeter Golf and Country Club – demonstrating that networking need not be something to give up for lent!
The event had a great start with Nigel Wilkinson – WNW Design – Successfully Selling Online seminar – covering the benefits to you, the cost savings, “your clicks and mortar”, integration, payments, P&P, marketing and even the EU Distance Selling Directive and so much more – you can benefit from Nigel’s considerable expertise at his upcoming seminar on Friday 14th March, 9am – 12 noon
A quick snap from the seminar
Those at THE networking lunch were the first to experience the NEW table numbers!
Why mention this well – they have been designed so that do not need to be tipped over to allow conversations – super idea – aals not mine but a great example of how networking enables you to ask experts for the solutions – the table numbers designed by N3 Display Graphics!
A big thank you to Alex Wren from Bitpod for a fact filled, opportunity laden 10 minutes on how you can use video in your business – want to find out more then get along to his event on 27th March – with super early bird rate and free video marketing toolkit!

Thank you also for the business needs – where the room of experts are given the opportunity to help

James Fowler – Old Mill Group – looking for a tailor
And one I forgot – my apologies
