Business seminar before lunch being hosted by Be Astute

6 numbers to run your business

The logic is that from the smallest to the largest organisations,there are key indicators which we can measure internally which are accurate forecasters for future success.
If you only measure success using your financial results, you are managing by looking at your rear view mirror.  For many of us, a lot of effort and time is expended before we get a sniff of a clients money.  Therefore if you are only looking at those numbers you cannot see what is coming down the line.
For many of us, as non financial people we are much more comfortable measuring real life activity, the number of sales inquiries or number of customers.  We understand these numbers better and how they relate to each – how we can influence them to get the results we are looking for.
And this is the area we will be exploring in the seminar – understanding our numbers, how they relate, and more importantly how we can easily measure them and report them.
Be Astute is independent, and is not an approved partner, re-seller or vendor for any hardware or software products. They focus on the people and business needs first, and recognise it is these needs that ultimately define the technology to adopt.

A husband and wife team combining our individual talents to create a business support company with a difference. They are business focused IT specialists but their starting point is not the technology, or selling you cool gadgets.

They start with you, your needs, the issues that you have that need solving.

Why a culture of creativity is the best business investment you will ever make

Gavin, Elixel’s MD, is the artist that couldn’t draw, the digital student that couldn’t code and the business owner who started out thinking that turnover was something you did to a steak to cook the other side.

Gavin Believes creativity is not restricted to artists, dancers and graphic designers. It could actually be fundamental in your business reaching its potential whether you are looking at generating more revenueincreasing market share or creating a more engaged working environment.

During this workshop we will look at understanding what creativity is, where it comes from and will explore some tools you can take back to use in your own business.

Elixel’s team of highly talented product designers and developers are ready to deliver market-leading digital products and services. Some examples…. Award Winning Student Union App to Solving the office tea round to building the ultimate app for indie comic enthusiasts.

YOUR EVENT ITINERARY 

 

Date – Wednesday 23rd January

Venue – The Cowshed

10.00 – 11.45am – Business seminar before lunch being hosted by Inge Dowden

 How to set meaningful goals for 2019

January is traditionally the time for New Year’s Resolutions, but personally I don’t like them very much. Often, they are things that we don’t really want, and we end up ditching them before the month is over.

In this seminar, we’re going to look at setting some meaningful goals for your life and your business. Not just for 2019, but long-term as well. Things that are important to you and that you’re excited about, so that you’re much more motivated to achieve them.  And once you’ve set some great goals for yourself, we’ll also look at how to put them on a vision board.

Because remember: you deserve nothing less, than happiness and success!

Coffee and networking from 10am and session starts at 10.30am (optional, always rewarding, included in the price and a great networking opportunity!)

11.45 am – 12.30pm   – networking over drinks

12.30 pm –  Take your seats for lunch

From 12.50 pm – Table presentations – exchange business cards, make your 3-minute presentation, and listen for opportunities – your table host will direct proceedings! All while a delicious 2 course lunch is served to you

1.30 pm – 1.40 pm        Table to table networking – your opportunity to introduce yourself to someone seated at a different table.  The seating plan has a list of all those attending today’s event – the pink sheets.  Please ask Sean if you need an introduction brokered

1.40 pm –  The 10 minutes  – Planet Mark Start

Father Christmas is real….and is featured at Bristol Business Network’s December event!

Wednesday 12th December

fatherchristmas

Father Christmas is real. It’s all about the proposition.

 

If you are looking to visit or join a business network in Bristol then this is by far the best! Not only will you get to meet some interesting and influential people in a networking format which is different and really works but you will also get the opportunity to attend free monthly seminars on a wide range of topics which will be useful to you and your business” David Doughty – Excellencia

  • You benefit from the free business seminar
  • You will meet other business owners, directors & decision makers over drinks 11.45am – 12.30pm
  • You have relationship building conversations over a served, 2 course lunch from 12.30pm
  • Your table is hosted & you don’t sit with anyone who does what you do
  • Back to your office for the afternoon as event finishes at 2pm.

Bristol Business Network has been operating successfully since 1993 and because we target senior decision-makers it is all about establishing meaningful business relationships – not a ‘hard sell’.

Many business people prefer face-to-face networking opportunities because they prefer actually knowing and meeting who they intend to do business with. But don’t just take our word for it – come and chat to our members and let then tell you why they find our format so effective.

Business Seminar before lunch hosted by 

Hosted by Michael Evans* – Beyond Consulting

michael_portrait

Michael Evans – Business seminar host

Michael has 17+ years in marketing, sales and business management. Having started his career with Intel, he went on to develop his marketing skills at Vodafone and Netgear. He’s the proud co-founder of BPI OnDemand, an award winning Oracle CRM / CX solutions partner and following his fight with leukaemia, he set-up Beyond-Consulting, to get back to what he loves – creating great marketing for SME businesses.

 

Father Christmas is real. It’s all about the proposition.

Why do children believe and buy-in to the idea of Father Christmas? In the eyes of a child, Father Christmas is real, because the proposition that’s portrayed by parents, films and the whole event, delivers what they are wishing for, consistently, every year. And just like children at Christmas time, your customers are looking for you to consistently deliver a particular proposition – a solution to their desires, challenges and goals.

Content: A great marketing campaign is based around a fantastic proposition. The proposition is what will be better, different or easier once the customer has used or experienced your product or service. So just like Father Christmas, how do you deliver happiness to your customers?

Why you should come: This session will improve your core message about what you and your business do for your customers.

What you will take from it: A clear outline of how to create a great proposition message and how to consistently deliver that proposition.

Actions for your business: Create your proposition, identify how you can improve the consistency of delivery and filter these into your marketing and way of doing business.

Raffle to support The Jessie May Trust 

 Jessie May is a Bristol-based charity providing nursing care at home for children and young people with life limiting conditions who are not expected to live beyond the age of 19. Jessie May was established in September 1994 by Chris and Philippa Purrington, following the death of their baby daughter Jessica May. She died from a genetic condition known as severe Spinal Muscular Atrophy when she was only 4½ months old.

Jessica’s parents were determined to do what they could to enable other children with conditions like Jessica’s and their families to have support in their own homes and the choice to die at home when that time comes. After a lot of hard work and perseverance initial funding was secured, and Jessie May was officially launched in 1996.

For reasons of safety and security, all Jessie May Care Team personnel are employed through University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust (UHBristol), and these posts are fully funded by Jessie May. All administrative personnel are employed directly by the charity. The Trust is almost entirely reliant upon voluntary funding, and encourages donations from individuals, corporate organisations, community groups and grant-making or charitable trusts. No charge is made to families using the services of the charity.

Since Jessie May was founded in 1996 the charity has supported over 300 children and their families in Bristol, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset, Bath & North East Somerset, and Swindon & Wiltshire.
