7th August 2013

Despite being the middle of the holiday season it was great to see so many faces round the table including a couple of new ones in the shape of Caroline Makwasha of Sisal Nannies and Claire De Vos of Devos Consultancy.  Lynda Hudson of Beckenham Clinical Hypnosis also joined us for a return visit.
Our training topic focussed on Maximising our One Minutes – new information for networking beginners and a useful reminder for the more experienced in the group.  We shall see next month if any of the top tips struck a chord!
Quote of the Month?

This month one quote and one tip: “Reflexology can also be done on the hands” from Cheryl Cockcroft of Holistic Therapies 4 U.  Who knew?!  And “Closing your lined curtains during the day will keep your rooms much cooler in hot weather” from Josie Foster of Furnishings Studio.

Laptops update:
Whilst we wish her well in her new home in Sussex, we were sad to lose Colleen Guy, our resident Coach, last month.  It does mean, however, that this very competitive category is now available and we are welcoming guests who work in that area.  We’d also love to meet female tradespeople and women from the financial sector.
