90%: If your head’s not in it, your heart won’t be either!

12th January, 2021 8:00 am

The perception you have of yourself, your company, your product or service, and your marketplace, will directly affect your success.

They say that Attitude is everything…

Attitude has to do with your outlook – the perception you have about yourself, your company, your product or service, and your marketplace. It can be one of possibility, or one of limitation. And, since it’s your perception, it’s your choice.

Which way do we go?

8th December, 2020 8:00 am

Getting the fundamentals decisions right in a changing world makes a heap of difference for all sorts of reasons.

We think of cost, tax, and legal status issues but making that key decision also affects us in many other ways. Resources are scarce and we must do the best we can with them.

As we move past COVID, insolvency risks and probable changes in legislation on tax means new things to think about.

Graeme’s session will give attendees a chance to ponder what steps to take next.

Stress Busting

10th November, 2020 8:00 am

Phil Gowler form Woodley NLP will have a look at what stress is, what it can do to us (physically and mentally) and how to deal with that.

Our usual sources of stress have been added to in a major way by Covid, so stress busting is even more important now.

However, we will all have ways of managing stress, and it will be great to share those with each other because it could well be that we will pick up ideas that we can try, and so help us manage stress in a positive way. It may even be that we can share some activities together-socially distanced of course!

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

You will have no doubt come across the term ‘ideal client’. You may already have one for your business, along with a persona or avatar to bring them to life. But what steps did you take to identify your ideal client? Are they in fact your true ideal client?
