No Frills Networking Meeting 11th August 2015
Thank you to those that could attend what was an excellent NoFrills meeting on Tuesday. David Colley was in Scotland so I chaired the meeting – but it should be business as usual next month.
Firstly, a huge thank you to our speakers. The five minute spotlight was given by Ian Preston (3 degrees social) who gave an excellent presentation on business coaches and how valuable a business coach can be to your business. Claire Lawton (Acorn Support) gave the 20 minute skills spotlight, which lead to a very interesting discussion on current hot HR topics.
Also a huge thank you to Anthony Ruben, The Utility Warehouse, for providing a fantastic buffet and for completing our monthly raffle in aid of Whizz-Kidz, our chosen yearly charity.
Our next meeting will be on Tuesday September 8th. Our 5 minute business spotlight will be from Katherine Dixon (Way Beyond Words), and our 20 minute skills spotlight will be from Mark Lees (Collective Legal Solutions) who will be giving a talk titled ‘Tax care and toy boys, estate planning for the future’.
Be sure to check out the coming events from our members (see below). Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you on the 8th!

About No Frills Networking
Each month we offer our members a great night of business networking in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
Bring a guest to our meetings and get free entrance (normally £5) next time.
Why not exhibit at one of our meetings? We have 3 spaces each month for members to visually promote their services and products. The cost of this is £10 per meeting inclusive of the entrance fee. As exhibition spaces are limited members MUST book prior to the meeting by contacting our secretary, Steve Brogan.
We also offer banner advertising on our website at a cost of £10 per year. If you are interested in promoting your business via our website please contact our secretary, Steve Brogan, who will gladly forward you any relevant information.
We value our members participation in our meetings and how the club is run.
We are looking for different members each month to volunteer to prepare the buffet. If you are interesting in this please contact our secretary, Steve.
