A target in sight

A fitting start to The Boardroom Network Solent’s summer luncheon was the extraordinary acrobatic display by Orissa Kelly, Foot Archer. Orissa can fire and hit a target upside down using her feet – just an example of the performers, quirky installations, and entertainment provided by Abi Wightman. Our resident MC, Jay Rachet, kept proceedings timed […]

After the NHS cyber attack and IT meltdown which affected many organisations simultaneously last weekend, the special guest presenter at May’s meeting of The Boardroom Network Solent could not have been more apt. More than 70 members and visitors – our lifeblood! – made the most of growing professional business connections through two table swaps […]

May the fourth be with you

It may have been Star Wars Day but luckily our 78 members and guests avoided the dark side by arriving at the Hallmark Hotel in Bournemouth bright and early.

The glorious setting of Compton Acres for our March meeting of the TBN Bournemouth Breakfast Club reminded us that we can look forward to lighter and warmer mornings now that Spring is here.

Property, People, Prices and Pazazz

What could possibly link these four apparently diverse topics together? Well, the answer is this month’s TBN Solent meeting. 68 business leaders including 27 guests from across Hampshire came together in The Solent Hotel Whitely to connect, do business, and learn. I thought that this month’s meeting was one of the best I have attended, […]

Knock, Knock. Who’s There?

It’s Jay Rachet MC with his gavel! There wasn’t a spare seat in the house, not even for Jacqui, at the TBN Bournemouth meeting this month! We welcomed 90 guests including 28 visitors, who were adorned with our new system of coloured lanyards. This is an ideal way for members to identify newcomers –  red […]
