Numerous mentioned a lot of times at Exeter Business Network’s May event!

May 12, 2015

“You need a lot of different types of people to make the world better” Joe Louis b 13/5/1914

The Exeter Business Network event yesterday at Exeter Racecourse and Conference Centre brought together numerous people from numerous businesses and organisations for numerous conversations, filled with energy and enthusiasm!   I can only quote Robert Kiyosaki here as I saw lots of rich people growing and building their networks!

Joe Louis used the words “a lot” and I have picked that theme up using the word “numerous”!

The event opened with a seminar hosted by me (Sean Humby!!!) on networking – growing and building again – a whistle stop tour of the why, when, where, what, who and how to get the best from any networking that you do


Full of discussion, top tips, conversation and advice on the numerous ways of getting more from your networking!

THE networking lunch where there were numerous conversations taking place athe the different points – conversations over drinks, at the hosted tables where every person spoke about their business/organisation and the benefits that it brings to others, the table to table networking using the seating plan where numerous people were listed!

A snapshot here…


Secondly “Thank you” Chris Wood – Q Social Media – more insight, facts and tips to help you get more from your LinkedIn activity with 5 super tips!  Available to you here.

Want more expert advice then you can follow Chris on Twitter @qsocialmedia or contact Chris – 01392 311340 or sign up for Chris’s Eureka Bulletin – full of great stuff!

The event finished at 2pm with the numerous attendees all leaving with numerous actions to follow up and continue to build their network – numerous actions including one to one’s; a phone call or 2; connecting on LinkedIn; sharing their knowledge; following on Twitter; perhaps even placing an order…..

Announcements and links made at the end of the lunch…..
