Business networking with a very relevant guest speaker
It always brings great energy to a meeting when we have a guest speaker and this month was no exception. Twenty local business women met on Zoom to network, share expertise and pass business referrals. We also found out more about the importance of correct posture – especially with so many working from home – from Michael Camp from Optimal Spine Wellness Clinic.
Chair, Lindie Van As from Zulu Graphix, runs the meetings and keeps us all on track. Things work a little differently on Zoom as opposed to when we meet in person. We start by going round the virtual room for the 60 second presentations. These are a great chance for us to tell the rest of the group how they can best support our business that month. Whether with an introduction to a specific organisation, help spreading the news about a particular service or a lead on someone looking for the service we provide.
Then we hand over to our guest speaker or one of our members for an education slot. These are great sessions, usually followed by a lively Q&A. And then it’s once more round the virtual room to pass business referrals to other members, thank individuals for introductions and business passed and request 121s with members and visitors to find out more about how we can work together.
The meetings are always great fun and extremely productive. And we welcome visitors – so do get in touch to find out more.
The 10 minutes…
We were joined by Michael Camp from Optimal Spine Wellness Clinic. Michael was extremely informative about the part that the spine plays in keeping us upright and aligned and some of the issues that can arise if it isn’t in the right place.
He also gave us some fabulous tips around minimising the impact on our posture of working from home.
