Jan 2019 NBN was a cracking start to the business year 🙂
We changed the format and left the open networking until the end which was a great success and seems to work much better. So it means people need to arrive at 9:15 to a 9:30 prompt start.
The Jan Meeting marks our 2nd birthday of the launch of NBN which we had 18 business people in the room TODAY two years later we had 39 which is a fantastic achievement, as well as having regular attendees and always new people through the door each month this network works because of all of you and lots of business is passed which is great, as well as building great business relationships we help each other out with regular referrals between us all which is the aim of the game. The network continues to grow, so it is really important if you register and can not attend you let me know. We have a two per industry policy so if you have taken a slot and can’t make it I usually have a waiting list so it makes it fair so I can fill your place if you can not attend. I really appreciate those of you who let me know many thanks.
Our guest speaker today Elaine Norris was amazing and just proved the challenges of being self-employed didn’t stop her attending to talk to the group. Child care issues are a challenge for a lot of us and we really appreciated you making the decision to attend and tell us your story, which was food for thought. Elaine runs Gaia Crossfit in Cramlington and is a truley inspirtational lady to achieve what she has and the reasons behind it. Feel free to go see her 🙂
Thanks to our host venue Dissington Hall for looking after us as always. There are some office space available if anyone is looking for an office. Feel free to contact Mick or Gill for viewing.
Next meeting is Wednesday 6th Feb Dave McGarry will be hosting the group
See you all next month 🙂
