3rd December 2014



A fantastic final meeting of the year with everyone in high spirits and wonderful hospitality from the L’Aragosta team.
 
It was great to see some familiar faces back as guests and also to officially welcome our newest member, Complementary Therapist, Rosemary Pharo.
 
Alison Warner from Evolve & Grow was our guest speaker and she gave us a really useful overview of LinkedIn and how it can be used to grow a business.  Alison runs a one day workshop  called 'How to Generate Leads and Customers Using LinkedIn' and we were delighted to able to assign some Laptops & Lipstick funding to this which means that up to ten Laptops members will be able to attend the workshop at half price. 

We are investigating a couple more subsidised training options for our members in 2015 so watch this space!
