Bristol Business Network – report from March’s event

March 12, 2015

Hello and welcome to the report from the event – written by event host Sean Humby

The event was set up beautifully (if I don’t say so myself!) with the following quote “To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity” – Douglas Adams b/11/3/1952

I did allude to a couple of people – Johnny Appleseed and the similarities between what he did and networking – read more here and the quote that I misquoted – so apt for networking…

“Anyone can count the seeds in an apple, but only God can count the number of apples in a seed.” – Robert H. Schuller

And the fabulous article by Chris Garrett on your ROI from networking – you can read it here – consider these part of your “networking CPD!

“Thank you” to Mark Leveridge for the wonderful seminar in the morning.  Mark covered the why, the where, the who, the what, the when and the how on how we can get more from the exhibitions and trade shows that we exhibit at.

Mark in action!

Full of top advice and techniques – if you missed it do not worry as Mark has written a series of articles complete with video – a fantastic resource.  Available here……

Thank you to Ken Abbott for an entertaining, enlightening and informative 10 minutes – some sound advice and that’s only 3 from the 12 and they covered elephant dust, cows (or was it horses in the playground!) and some key lessons – find out more on 22nd April!
