Firstly congratulations to Ronke Lawal of RSL Management Services Ltd who has won six months free membership of 1230 TWC. Ronke correctly guessed the venue of the 1230 Diamonds are Forever event on 26 September is The Gherkin. If you haven’t already booked your tickets for this fabulous event time is running out. You can read more about it on the events pages.
Last Thursday I attended a very interesting meeting at 1230 Chislehurst. The speaker was Julie Quick of Heathside Centre for Health & Healing who gave a very interesting talk about women’s health. Judging by the number of questions being asked everyone else found the experience as interesting as I did.
Among those present were 1230 members Lee-Ann De Villiers who is the Director of Choice Home Care, a company that provides caring help that allows older people and disabled to remain independent in their own homes, Michelle Wharton, director of Capricorn Cleaning – domestic and office cleaning and Lauretta Wright who runs Cut to the Chase Speed Networking. Lauretta was looking for a talented web designer and she will be getting in touch with Carol Andrews, 1230 member who specialises in content management systems. Carol works with Rhian Wheeler, web designer and Co-manager of 1230 East Dulwich. There were lots of business referrals and information exchanges going on during the meeting which is managed by Jan Woollett whose business is helloWorld – the company that provides the video software that 1230 uses to welcome new members and broadcast training sessions to 1230 managers.
You will start to see a few banner advertisements on some of the 1230 website in the months to come. The advertisers have been chosen very carefully. The revenue we earn from referring site visitors to our advertisers’ businesses keeps 1230 membership fees as some of the lowest in the business networking sector. So do take a look at the goods and services on offer. Send us feedback if you use these companies and suggestions for new advertisers if you wish too.
Members interested in advertising on the 1230 website can contact me direct.
Next Monday 15 September I will be at 1230 Wimbledon’s meeting which is run by Teresa Leong and meets at Le Piaff on the Hill, Wimbledon. Why not join me there – all the details are in the September section of the 1230 calendar.
Look forward to meeting more of you this month.
