Hold on or you’ll fall!
So much clatter about political and economic uncertainty – it’s become almost like white noise. Businesses like mine are just trying to get through it all and a week off in #Morocco at the start of #October was so good, but it’s meant playing catch-up since I got back.
I jumped in at the deep end for @WokingMeansBiz on 16 October. Organised by @WokingChamber, I’m closely involved as a member of its #BusinessDevelopment Committee and in addition my clients @Woking_NewsMail, is one of its media sponsors.
The long day started with a @WokingCouncil breakfast briefing – rammed to capacity with local business community. For this I took up my reporter’s pad again to do a write-up for the paper on the keynote presentation by CEO #RayMorgan. This was followed by a full day on the newspaper’s expo stand. Great to be connecting with old and new businesses in the area but being in the hall the whole day that makes you a little stir crazy. It was so good to get a good dose of fresh air with @ScorpionTrainingBootCamp in the evening – painful though it was at times!
A vibrant rural economy
My passion for the #FieldToFork, or cup and glass continues from my years as Editor of @waitrose internal publication covering farming and all aspects relating to #supermarket stakeholders. So there was lots to chat about on Tuesday 22 October with new colleagues in @SurreyHillsEnt when I had a chance to showcase my business at a members’ evening @denbiesvineyard.
Listen and learn
There’s never a day that I don’t learn more – thank heavens!
So, on October 24th I was not disappointed when I turned up for a lunch briefing hosted by @roxhillmedia at the funky @WeWork location on Poultry St, #London. Thursday’s guest #RoxStar was #HelenDavies @TheSTHome #Editor who was really generous with her insight into the work and structure by #Home and #BricksAndMortar. A truly lovely down-to-earth person.
