Busy week ahead again. Got loads planned to catch up with our clients and also the people that refer business to us – a crucial part of our business. This week the phone’s been ringing off the hook again and the team seem to be having a good laugh as each new contact turns out to be someone I knew from school or from a few years back in Worthing who have spotted photos and editorials in local magazines – but have then been referred by one of our current business colleagues! It just shows that networking real does work.
Got Bennett Griffins’s marketing meeting on Monday – coming up to end of year so lots to do. Tuesday I’m meeting a great new contact from BNI Arundel – Wessex Networks who provide IT services, then a potential new clients referred to us from our Arundel event who has an online jewellery company. In the evening, I’m taking 25 of our clients and referrers out to the lovely Sylvan Oak restaurant in Findon – thanks for all your help Sinan. Wednesday is Business Circle so early start. Out with our client architect and painter Neil Holland on Thursday and may try and get up to South Lodge for Horsham BNI first thing. Fri brings Arundel BNI yet again then a networking lunch at our clients The Biz restaurant in Worthing – run by Best of Worthing and the Worthing Chamber of Commerce.
Some time out this week I hope on Friday afternoon as it’s my great friend Charlie from Red Anywhere’s birthday then at the weekend it’s more birthday celebrations with our client – and friend – Colette from The Stables B and B in Scotland – looking forward to staying with her and girls in London and going to see Dirty Dancing!
