August NBN Ponteland and Cramlington
Hey everyone hope you are all well?
Our first meeting of the month Kicked off August in style at Rialto Ponteland. Thanks to Sonny as always for looking after us at his lovely restaurant. Great food for all the family. If you have not eaten here you should, you won’t be disappointed.
It always amuses me when people say networking doesn’t work in August well we are a testament to say yes it does when we had two fantastic meetings and well attended.
Massive shout out to Duncan Yellowless, who was our guest speaker for the first meeting of the month. Loved the post-it notes and picture drawing getting us all thinking about how we do things and speak to people. Very interesting talk indeed.
The Snowy Owl Cramlington was our second meeting on the 22nd of August.
Great turn out and a very thanks to Neil Campbell for his very funny talk on listening skills. The whole room was full of laughter and got a lot from your talk. Your definitely welcome o do the body language talk for sure hahaha.
We do need speakers for this meeting if you fancy a slot let me know. ( the speakers don’t just talk about their business they have to give added value to the group).
So I have an announcement for those of you who were not at the meetings. Due to the admin of running the two groups getting a little problematic for me to do and people registering and not turning up. We have streamlined the website to now take payment online before you come to the meeting its a non-refundable £5 which covers the cost of the meeting and refreshments. Once you register online the details you enter will automatically populate the sheet that you get given in the meetings. So I can’t miss or make a mistake anymore. If it’s wrong it’s your fault haha.
If you register and there is already two in your business category registered. You will be issued a refund. Hopefully, this will stop people taking spaces and then not showing up on the day making people miss out.
If you register as a guest please email to let me know as the details you put in the system will be the ones on the sheet.
If you do not register you will not be on the list and may get turned away if your category is full for the meeting.
Registration is a must you can do that here
Next meeting September 4th is at Kirkley Hall and registration is still open until the Wednesday before the 3rd at 12 noon this is now the closing date and time the day before the meetings.
Next Snowy Owl is the 19th September.
If you have any questions please let me know. If not I will see you all at Kirkley Hall on the 4th Septemeber. Our guest speaker is Mark Beverley. Looking forward to seeing you. Let’s hope not too many teething problems with the new system. Oh you do get a confirmation and a ticket you do not need to bring the ticket but if you want to you can.
See you soon 🙂
