Come and Say Hi

We are a group of small business owners in and around Woodley, near Reading in Berkshire, England. We support each other with advice, services and general chat via Twitter, and our main point of contact… our group Facebook page.

Networking meet-ups twice a month are a great place to share ideas and ask questions, and we usually have a guest speaker too.

Bringing impact and presence to your online presentations

13th October, 2020 8:00 am

In this world of virtual working we are becoming familiar with using technology to ‘meet’ others but how do we give presentations online with the same level of impact and presence as we would face-to-face?

In this session, Jacqueline will share some top tips for:

  • Adapting your presentations for the online world
  • Building rapport and connecting with your virtual audience
  • Getting your message across in an interesting and memorable way.

Creating a Professional Small Business Website

23rd September, 2020 8:00 pm

This meeting Paul Faulkner will be our speaker talking about “Creating a Professional Small Business Website”.

Paul will be covering how to go from not having a website, to having a professional-looking presence on the web that’s actually useful and isn’t a hassle to maintain. How to avoid some common mistakes and learn how to work with your web designer to get your website to where you want it… without breaking the bank.

Following on from Paul’s talk there will be plenty of time for networking in our virtual breakout rooms.

We look forward to welcoming you to our meeting.

Really?! – Are you trying to frustrate me?

8th September, 2020 8:00 am

This meeting Tamsin Reynes will be our speaker talking to “Really?! – Are you trying to frustrate me?”.

During Tamsin’s interactive presentation she’ll help us to look at differences in personality type in a more positive way, rather than just as a challenge.

Following on from Tamsin’s talk they’ll be plenty of time for networking in our virtual breakout rooms. And as we randomly assign participants to the virtual rooms, this should be a good opportunity for us to try out some of what Tamsin’s taught us!

We look forward to welcoming you to our meeting.
