March business networking complete with treats!

March business networking complete with treats!   Thanks once again to Fiona from SMART Nutrition and Fitness for stepping in to chair.  She says she’s very much enjoying the power over the one minutes!

We had four visitors at the meeting this month.  Huge thanks to vegan meringue maker, Aleta  Viijoen who brought us each some lovely samples.  It was also nice to reconnect with Karen Deulofeu from Lilyama Coaching and make up artist, Shair Basir.  And finally, our old friend Michele from Chartwell Cancer Trust.

New member and caterer, Suzanne James, talked about using the finest ingredients and how everything is locally sourced.  She brought us all a packet of gift wrapped brownies to showcase what she does.  And as a Happy Birthday to Fiona!

And the gifts didn’t end there, Rosa from Bodysense Beauty Treatments gave us a sample packet of her Cell Skin solution and a 15% off voucher for her Cell Skin treatment.  Ideal for resetting and recharging your skin for Spring.

The best one minute award went to Kate from Utility Warehouse.  She reassured us that UW is 5% under the price cap and told us not to pull our hair out.  At which point she pulled her fake hair off!  It gave us all a laugh and certainly made the point!

Over lunch, we discussed what we saw as the biggest blocks in our businesses and next month we’ll tackle identifying our ideal customer.  Find out more about joining us here.

The 10 minutes…

Maria Kurek explained how the HR Dept South London came into being.  Starting with just Fintan and growing to the lovely team they have now.

They offer advice on all things HR related and Maria was keen to explain the benefits of working with them on a retainer basis and how quickly they are able to respond to any issues or queries.

It was great to find out more about Maria too.  Especially that she’s a keen paddle boarder.  And is often joined by Frankie her dog!



Sam from Sycamore VA Services is offering businesses a 2 hour audit to identify where they can save time and better organise processes.  She then produces a follow up report for £139

Alka from Critical Mission Computing is keen to meet recruitment agencies.

Julia from Truly Yours Holidays explained that customers can now spread the cost of holidays with her.  Enabling them to go to more exotic destinations!
