4th June 2013

Difficult to believe but June was our first sunny meeting of 2013!  Today we had an extended presentation from one of our newest members, Adjoa Djan-Krofa from Pishon Gold.  Adjoa told us a little more about what she does and was very interesting on the issue of Powers of Attorney – a subject particularly relevant to the self employed but perhaps not something that we necessarily think of.  The members obviously liked what they heard as Adjoa was inundated with requests for 121s and is probably now booked into 2014!

Congratulations to Sue Toomey who has now achieved the status of Reiki Master Practitioner.  It’s great to see our members pursuing professional development opportunities.

Hats off too (stylish ones of course ) to Denise our Image Consultant from Damson Belle.  Two separate members gave her glowing testimonials for shopping problems she had solved for their respective daughters – one of whom is 4’10’’, while the other is 6’1”.  So she really does cover all angles!

Quote of the Month?

“I’m looking for men”
This from two members: Denise from DamsonBelle who would love to do more work helping gentlemen to understand the colours and styles that work best for them (she now offers gift vouchers).  Also, Sue Toomey, our Reiki Master Practitioner, who can help bring calm and balance to stressed men.  Perhaps two options for Father’s Day?
