At our latest meeting on the 7th of April, we were pleased to welcome 78 members to the sophisticated Hallmark Hotel in Bournemouth. The fantastic turnout represents the great success of The Boardroom Network and the popularity of all our business networking activities. With plenty of energetic conversations taking place throughout the morning, members focused on the importance of building relationships and how supporting each other can be mutually beneficial for the whole business community. There was also an emphasis on the importance of TBN as a support network that enables local businesses to work together. Enjoying a hearty English breakfast, topics under discussion included the value of Amazon stocks, which are still both extremely affordable and attractive. Great to hear, there were many voices that conveyed healthy local business activity with plenty of optimism for continued growth.
Speakers included Barbara Marsh of Barbara’s Office Services. Her charming and honest pitch, ‘We take the time to get it right,’ championed her virtual business assistant services.
Having sold six hundred plus paintings since starting her new-found artistic career in August, TBN member Sally Mackness was happy to report an optimistic account of her New York adventures and upcoming features in national magazines.
The charismatic Adrian Page also spoke about an upcoming charity event on the 30th April that will raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. Delivered in his best West Country accent, it will be held at the Coach and Horses Pub in Wimborne, with a tractor run, live music, stalls, and a delicious hog roast!
Closing the morning, Jacqui Frampton, owner and operator of TBN, invited everyone to get involved in the upcoming launch of our new business network. She called upon members to recommend TBN Solent to as many businesses as possible, to help expand our business networking community into Hampshire.
Not to be missed, it will take place on the 15th of April at the luxury Solent Hotel and Spa in Fareham. We look forward to seeing a huge number of new, Hampshire members attend as well as some of our loyal Dorset members making the trip to Hampshire!
