Multiple leads and referrals passed at business networking

This month’s business networking saw another new face chairing the meeting.  This time the honour fell to founder member Belinda O’Grady of SE20 Community magazine.

Belinda did a fine job keeping us all in line and lots of leads and referrals were passed.  It was lovely to welcome back Helen Colechin from HR Dept who was subbing for Maria and also to meet Estate Agent Victoria Hemmings.

The 10 minutes…

This month’s presentation was brought to us by another founder member, Emma Pyott from Semaphore PR.

Emma took us through some of the key tools that businesses can use for getting their message out.  Including the words on their webs sites, blogs and newsletters.  It was also interesting to be reminded about the work that Semaphore does in helping businesses to protect their reputation when things go wrong.
