Farther Flexmas

Memories are made of this… The Bournemouth TBN Christmas meeting was memorable, merry, and magical… and a testament to the flexibility of members, organisers, and presenters! You can cut the power, but you can’t cut the energy! A power-cut that took out a sizeable portion of Bournemouth for more than the usual moments triggered a […]

AIM High

AIM High High Post, Salisbury, seemed the ideal name for the location for TBN Solstice’s Keynote Luncheon.  Why?  Because aiming high was the common theme of our four presentations.  If AIM was an acronym, it would be: Action Inspiration Motivation. If I may begin with the last first, Michael Collins entertained us with his tale […]

Design Diligence Delight and Development

On Design, Diligence, Delight and Development The high energy we’ve come to expect from our meetings was once again in evidence at the November Solent event.  Our table ambassadors did an outstanding job of ensuring high engagement around the tables, and Jay kept us moving at an exciting pace, keeping a keen eye on the […]

We Thrive At Five

On the 1st day of November, The Boardroom Network – Bournemouth – celebrated its 5th anniversary.  With delicious, TBN branded chocolates from Michael Collins, the buzzing breakfast meeting enjoyed a well-deserved taste of success. Connection is at the heart of what TBN stands for, and there is no connection without continuity.  For this reason, it […]

Getting To Know You

If you’re like me, you’ll feel ‘at home’ with The Boardroom Network.  One good reason for that is the opportunity created to get to know one another at each event.  Classy networking is about building relationships rather than providing a pitchfest.  Of course, it’s not about charity or just a jolly – we’re all here […]

Here are four brief testimonials from today’s event at The Boardroom Network, Solent. Maddy and Robert decided to join us today, Steve was on meeting number 8, and Tracie […]

Protect Prepare Persist and Present Yourself

These are the smiling faces of Bournemouth TBN’s Ambassadors for October – left to right, top row first: Simon Head, Simon Steele-Williams, Richard Mack, Jamie Forster, Graham Down, Justin Cohen, Chris Palmer, and Denise Ward.  A big “Thank You!” to all our Ambassadors – the catalysts that help each meeting flow to a successful conclusion. […]

Solstice and the Spider

I’m sure I speak for all of us when I say I find the buzz in our meetings energising – getting the day off to a great start.  Of course, our Ambassadors – Thursday’s pictured above – keep that energy flowing.  Sometimes the energy is elevated to what can be described as ‘excitement’ – especially […]

It Is About Time

To say our Breakfast meeting at the Solent Hotel and Spa was ‘time well spent’ can be clearly seen from this great moment captured by Justin Wharmby, our Photographer-in-Residence.  There were so many photos from today’s shoot that show faces full of joy… and that at about 8 am on a Friday morning!  Something must […]
