First Friday works for you!

I asked on LinkedIn and Facebook for some testimonials of how the network is having a positive effect on your business and here are the first couple of responses. Do you have a story to tell us?

"First Friday (Lewes) has been the biggest source of new clients from face-to-face networking! This is why I was happy to take over organisation of the group. And then of course I went to take on organisation of Third Friday Brighton and have got work from there. Cannot see me stopping any time soon. And now I've launched a new business (see www.bananaoffice-networking.com) I hope to get even more work in the coming months and years."
Ashley Price, Bannana Office

"After one visit to an 'Open' First Friday Network meeting in Bognor Regis with the amazing Kay Phillips I have got myself a new Accountant from Finch Lynton for Heels of Arundel, purchased myself a new smart phone from Chris at O2 in Bognor, and Paul Inskip Photography is now supporting my charity Chestnut Tree House Children's Hospice. Not bad eh! I would highly recommend adding a First Friday Network meeting to your diary."
Caroline Roberts-Quigley, Heels of Arundel

Also, everyone seems to be very happy with the membership pack that you get when you join the breakfast network! Thank you Paul Service (www.commslearning.com) for the Tweet!

Seminar – 18 secrets of the super successful

The 18 Secrets Super Successful Business Owners Know And Do... That Most Business Owners Don't Know or Don't Do

Tuesday 23rd July 2013, Worthing, 11.30am-1pm

In this high energy, fast paced, humorous and engaging talk, Paul Chapman, will draw back the curtain on what Britain's Super Successful business owners have been doing over the last few years to florish, thrive and grow during the recession, whilst many business have been struggling.

His refreshingly blunt analysis and straight talking style make this a 90 miute presentation that you simply can't afford to miss - whatever business or sector you are in.

Paul will make you think differently about your business and give you at least a handful of "nuggets" that you will be able to take away and implement - IMMEDIATELY - that will make a tangible difference to your sales and profits straightaway. Everything in this session is all 100% PRACTICAL and RELEVANT

There a lot of people working very hard out there - they are driven and passionate about growing their business but they are not achieving the levels of success they had hoped for.

In this session Paul will look at what the high flyers are doing to make their business grow massively - even in hard times - and pull out the tools, tricks and techniques that EVERY business owner could use, straight away to make a proper impact to their bottom line... that most business owners don't know exist or worse still ignore.

What you'll leave with:

Tools, tips, tricks, secrets and techniques that will help your business grow.
  An understanding of WHAT tools are out there and HOW you can use them.
  A whole stack of practical ideas that you can implement into your business THE NEXT DAY
  A sense of motivation from a session that you'll enjoy...I promise

If you're in business then we GUARANTEE that there will be something in this talk for you - and probably - something big - but don't take our word for it. Here's what business owners around the country have to say:

"Nothing prepared me for the energy, expertise and creativity that Paul evidently lived and breathed. I particularly liked Paul's drive for the success of MY business, he genuinely takes an interest and offers incredible ideas/solutions backed up with excellent case studies of how he has helped similar businesses. The presentation itself is fun, exciting, interactive and most of all inspiring - I left the seminar smiling knowing that I'd learnt so much whilst meeting great people!"

"It's been fantastic session really motivating, Paul helped to highlight lots of things that I know I should be doing and this has really given me the kick I need... sometime you just need someone to give you that bit of a nudge to get you going. It was very very good and I would certainly recommend any business owner to attend one of his workshops."
Joanne Hilal - PA by the day

"What I found useful was the fact Paul didn't pretend to know everything, it was all about learning, He had a lot of information and huge amount of well thought through ideas - as a business owner you can never stay still you have to be open to learning new ideas."
Nigel Lamb - Xposure Creative
