Another successful event hosted and organised by Sarah Arrow regional leader of the Business Scene in Essex and co organised by Romany Thresher, Direct Assist Online.
Firstly, thank you to all our guests for your wonderful support and for joining us last night. It was good to see so many new faces and I had the opportunity to see some familiar faces of people who I have been interacting with for quite some time. Su Butcher, Sally Ormond, Chris Lodge, Laury Burr, Liz Chukwu and Don Cooke and Andy Harris who surprised us all the way from Exeter and Katherine Davison. There were also some popular networking groups among the visitors, BMI, Friendfeed, Ecademy and members of Better Networking a community recently launched by Steven Healey, Romany Thresher and Sarah Arrow.
I would like to thank all our sponsors who were superb. Adrian and his team from Simply Fine Foods who offered refreshment drinks at an excellent value of 60p and who supplied a finger buffet on the house to all the guests. Amy Cutbill and her team who supplied the wine and featured our sponsors on video. Pawel and his team who did all the photography and also did profile photos for a fiver. Kevin Arrow from Arrow Light Haulage one of the main event sponsors. Sam Dimon a budding entrepreneur at 16 who provided the sound in the last hour and lastly Asim Husain and John of Mercedes Benz Chelmsford who provided an excellent venue. Richard White of The Accidental Salesman our guest speaker spoke on sales and generating leads. We closed with a raffle prize draw, monies collected went to charity. A Blackberry compliments of Blackberry, The Business Launchpad sales training valued £297+VAT supplied by Richard White and a bottle of champagne by Arrow Light Haulage.
