I've just been on the TBC and it looks great.
Many of my customers and shoppers are around Ashton, Mossley and around Tameside etc.
The OBN has been fantastic for me. Making friends, learning from other networkers and obtaining business leads.
The TBC looks to build on that.
New friends, more advice and more exposure, happy days.

Well that was a blast! The sun shone at the Sunlight Twestival and Chaddy the Owl, a clown, dancing, football, and cupcakes galore all made for a fab event. Over at Boundary Park, the compere, the fun, the prizes, the Twiz, the Eurovision style link-up, Bob the dog's demos, and of course the money raised made for a great evening. We could not have hoped for more from Oldham's inaugural Twestival! And all these shenanigans were in…Continue

This week was the AGM for the Institute of Professional Willwriters. It was held at the NEC in Birmingham and about 200 Willwriters from up and the country attended. As sat amongst the esteemed company of my fellow Willwriters, I wondered if anyone had a collective noun to describe the group.

What would you suggest as the collective noun for the group you work…Continue

Re the response to Kate Harcus, Groundwork, on Healh and wellbeing/stress management in the workplace
Although not an employer, my previous roles involved managing people and my own experience as an employee.
There is a lot of training around, some in house in larger organisations, but even so, my own experience is that
employers don’t take stress as a serious issue for themselves or their staff, as you say. Although management know this can be…Continue
For every 10 emails you receive full of marketing blurb, I bet you don't read 9 of them.
So what are the ways for your emails to avoid the Spam and being the 1 in 10?

Even more criminal is buying a generic pdf newsletter and sending it out. Lazy and…Continue
