Exeter’s September’s event – great start to the new term!

September 11, 2014

What better way to start a post – a quote from Robert Wise (b 10/9/1914)- the producer/director – West Side Story, Sound of Music…

“My 3 P’s – passion, patience and perserverence – you have to do this if you’ve got to be a filmmaker” 

Networking is about the 3 P’s and also a story and there is something musical about a room full of people having great conversations!

And there were numerous conversations coupled with enthusiasm and a genuine postive energy at the event on 10th September at Exeter Golf & Country Club.  Seeing so many people fitted into such a small space – what a sight – I guess it was near the drinks!

 

Thank you to Julia Bramble of Bramblebuzz for the for the fabulous seminar before lunch on “Using social media to find, attract and keep customers” crammed full of super advice, tips and Julia’s exceptional expertise.

Do you know why you should use English (US) on Face Book?  Or the difference between engagement, comment, shares, likes? Then perhaps you need Julia’s expertise?

For those that didn’t get the chance to get to the seminar (and for those that did!)

A link to the guide which goes more into what Julia talked about yesterday in terms of using content – especially on using Face Book to grow your business.

THE networking lunch consisted of pre lunch drinks with informal networking followed by a sit down 2 course lunch with coffee.
Each table had a variety of other decision makers – never 2 businesses doing the same thing!. There is a table host at each table and each person had 3 minutes to talk to the others around their table about what they do and how this helps businesses/individuals/organisations.

Café Style Speed Training  – Although the information is mainly aimed at managers within organisations the areas covered are applicable to all relationships. This can be just as useful for small business owners to be aware of how language can be used to engage rather than repel. This is just as important when dealing with employees, customers and potential customers.  Book your place here for the 29th September!
