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’ –...

Fiery Start to Autumn

We had a fiery start to the Autumn Season with the grim tale of Barbecued Bony Bob and other great presentations.  In fact, it was a bit like a new School Term!  Looking at the ‘Class of Table 8’ above, one wonders if they knew Bony Bob! Whilst our members are certainly influenced by...

Solstice Signposts the Future

At High Post, we reached a new high point in the history of The Boardroom Network. At The Stones Hotel, TBNers gathered for a meeting that seems to have evolved already from the launch-phase through to ready-to-run, ready to flow, ready to grow.  Without Jacqui in person, it was exciting to see that Jacqui’s...

Summer Sunshine, Sailing, and Satisfying HMRC

Our lovely summery morning offered energetic and enthusiastic networking, the most interesting hash browns we’ve ever seen, and practical content to inspire us to action. Here’s what we covered. Networking for Introverts Jay and Lex kicked off our mini presentations with Lex saying, “Every time I tell folks that I am an Introvert…” gentle...

Summer on the South Coast – TBN Bournemouth in June

The sense of Summer was upon us… early dawn, birdsong, and complete with the obligatory Summer shower! Networking Hacks Personally, yesterday was a real ‘hit’ for me.  The first of Sam Sharma’s “Networking Hacks” was bang-on-the-money (assisted by his mischievous models: Sam Dyer and El Lexicon!) Body language shouts so loudly we often can’t...

On Second Thoughts…

It was time for TBN Solstice’s second meeting! May brought us the second meeting of the new TBN Solstice.  The numbers shifted and a curtain was drawn across the room, adding a sense of mystery… what was behind the curtain?  Would the second event live up the excitement of the first? Alongside the tried,...

The Generation Game

Do you enjoy networking? I do. But for me, it’s a game! In fact, it’s a couple of games. Perhaps that’s why I enjoy it so much. Connect 4 The first game is called “Connect 4” – plagiarism intended! To play this game, I aim to connect at least 4 people from each meeting....

The Sound of Solstice

  That phrase, “The Sound of Solstice,” may well conjure up a Steven Spielberg directed depiction of dawn breaking over Stonehenge complete with an appropriately ethereal soundtrack… The truth was far more exciting.  Dawn we had, and a good one too, but the sound was far from ethereal.  It was the buzz of businesspeople...
