June’s Exeter Business Network Lunch report

June 5, 2014
“Small opportunities are often the start of great enterprise” Demosthenes
“It is the quality rather than the quantity that matters” Seneca
The June event (4/6/14) held at The Lord Haldon Country Hotel began with Chris Wood of Q Social Media and his fabulous seminar on “Increasing Website Traffic” –

THE networking lunch saw numerous conversations taking place over drinks and then at the hosted tables.  Conversations leading to connections and collaborations…….
A big thank you to Ian Smith of Winning Tenders for such an interesting insight into the world of tenders (and not those pulled behind trains!), his career and how the devil is in the detail – submit a proposal with a spelling mistake in and get no further – do a cut and paste job on a tender and get the clients name wrong…..
And it is this attention to detail that has given Ian such a fantastic success rate over the years!  More on Ian’s services here

Why we will always need clouds even on a sunny day
Clouds can provide users with a number of different benefits.
Any businesses large or small can use cloud computing – indeed we all do either directly, think Google or Amazon or indirectly Twitter/LinkedIn. But why would you?
  • Reduction of costs
  • Universal access
  • Up to date software
  • Choice of applications
  • Greener
  • Greater flexibility

Hosted by Ian Dunstan and Jim Taylor of Cobalt Communication Solutions Ltd.

Have a fantastic day and month!

See you on 2/7/14
