Andrew Priestley - Speaker on Guest Day Tuesday 11th October

We were excited and pleased to have over 50 people in the special breakfast event today, including almost all of our 25 members, plus, of course our special guest speaker, Andrew Priestley.

We hope that everyone enjoyed the opportunity to network with local pro-active businesses both before and after our great session with Andrew, learning the 9 Questions to Drive Profit, taken from his new book ‘Starting’.

Andrew not only gave us a real insight into the story of his own business time line, through failure to success, he also provided us with some essential tools to not only help new businesses, but to breathe life into older stagnating businesses.

Judging by the notes taken by our guests we believe that everyone took something away from the session, whether thoughts on Dragon’s Den application process and Business Plan Executive Summary, the Prices Trust Business Plan Guide or the clear diagram Andrew displayed showing the 9 questions, certainly plenty of food for thought & to top it all it was completely FREE.

We are sure that we will welcome Andrew back in the future to talk to us once again, so please do keep your eye on our Social Media feeds and our Website.

Al Frank Monk - Special Guest on Tuesday 8th November

We were excited to welcome Al Frank Monk to our group on 8th November, where Al Frank will take the opportunity to explain to the group 'Why video is the way forward for any business'.

Al Frank believes in encouraging business owners to make their own videos as a means of connecting to a wider audience and engaging with people. If business owners are not willing or able to invest in a professional video then he will encourage making our own our phones & of course why not when many of us own competent Smartphones?

Al Frank will deliver some tips to the audience which will give us the confidence to start making our own videos and how to best get these out on social media platforms.
