Business Essentials

Two fundamental topics – in one day!

Every business owner needs connections, otherwise who knows about you, your business? So the answer to “Must I?” is a resounding – Yes! Turning up just isn’t enough. You need to make the most of your time there, whether this is online or offline – after all, your time is money, . And then what do you do with those connections after the event? Just move on to another event? Or?

The day is packed with essentials to help you make those connections and love those connections – the gold of your business.

Trainer for the day is Jackie Groundsell. Not only qualified by certification but also by experience. With 24+ years running her own businesses , Jackie is not only an experienced business owner, she’s also a bit IT savvy (CertEd FE). She is also said to have been networking since birth!

NETWORKING

During the first session of the day, Jackie will share her Networking expertise and hard-earned first-class Tips. Leaving you set for the challenges of your next networking event in a far better place. At ease and rewarded by the success of “getting it right” and not just coming away with a pile of business cards that sit on the corner of your desk, unloved, for several months.

EXCEL

Which leads nicely onto the second session of the day. Exactly what do you do with those business cards after networking, or even the notes from your notebook? Excel is famous for its “number crunching”. Bring along your laptop and charger for this hands-on session of building a database that can be used forever with your business, but will  also upload well into other software as and when needed.

Women through Time – their gender their strength

women, businesswomen, gender, strength, London, City, Boudica, Margaret ThatcherThe networking started in earnest at 10.00 am City Business Library over coffee and biscuits, I’d caught the 9.13 am from my local station, but those business women travelling from Canterbury, Herne Bay and Hythe, left considerably earlier at 7.10 am!  Tina, our City of London Guide – Miss B Takes a Walk – was already there, such a pleasure to meet her for the first time.  The 1230 TWC “walkers” were soon joined by Mikaela Ioannou and her photographic team from University of East London who were to document the day for their forthcoming Exhibition “Power to us” (working title).

Gathering our coats and scarves around us against the cold, off we set; Tina leading us onto our “Women through Time – their gender their strength” walk in celebration of International Women’s Day.  In and around Paternoster Square, King Edward Street, Gresham Street, Cheapside, Guildhall Complex, Poultry, Mansion House and Royal Exchange we walked – brrrr it was getting colder, so we huddled together listening to Tina’s every word, near various hot-air vents, oh joy – but it was so worth it!  Cameras clicking all the way.

We learnt about Dame Mary Donaldson 1st female Lord Mayor, Margaret Thatcher and Alexa Wilding, Elizabeth Fry, Emmeline Pankhurst, Boudica, Capt John SmithPocohontas, Isabella Beeton, Madona and Evita and Isabella Queen of England to Edward II.  Oh to have been a “fly on the wall”, maybe to have joined Boudica I certainly wouldn’t have wanted to be an adversary, all such tremendously courageous, inspiring women of their time.

Quick hop and warm-up on the Tube onto Mayfair Exchange for lunch, finding out more about each other and how we can work together accompanied by lots of – “cheers!”  Can’t wait to see our recorded interviews with film crew.  Eventually, we had to make a move back to the office – no… too late, back home.

Thanks so much Tina for an amazing journey with amazing women – can’t wait until the next time!
