Today I visited 1230 Kingshill who meet in the Observatory Restaurant in The Spitfire. It was a truly rewarding visit.
Over the past few weeks I have attended 1230 meetings at East Grinstead, Hastings, Sevenoaks, Beckenham and Chislehurst and today’s meeting really confirmed to me how much business is done now at 1230 meetings and between members. Today I bought a TooJays handbag .. and I wasn’t the only one! I spoke to Yvette who had a great fund-raising idea for Ovacome and I got a good tip from Karen of Utility Warehouse on how to reduce my bills even more – I am already a UW fan! I heard many testimonials from members about other members which I look forward to seeing posted on the website so that everyone can read them.
I am also keen to hear what 1230 Kingshill members decide to do to raise funds for Ovacome – Anna and Jane had a very good idea and I do hope it will go ahead.
Fantastic news too – at least two business women who were at the meeting are seriously considering becoming 1230 managers.
The more groups there are the greater the opportunities for all business women to take part in a 1230 group.
Of coure there is no excuse for any business women in the UK not to attend 1230V (V = virtual!) our monthly online telephone conference – details of next one are in the March section of the Meeting calendar.
Thank you to Beverley, Kate, Caroline, Clare, Jan, Anna and Jane for the inspiration you have given to me and to all the 1230 members and others who attend your meetings.
