Bright Marketing Seminar in Bath

We had a great Bright Marketing seminar today, just down the road from us, near Bath.

100 exciting, independent/growing businesses squashed themselves into the Cumberwell Golf Club for this event run by

My book recommendation was
The Four-hour Workweek – Escape the 9-5 and Join the New Rich by Tim Ferriss… a provocative book which will make you realise that you are probably the bottleneck in your business. This book is a combination of '80/20' and 'work ON not IN your business' thinking... It’s time to rewrite the organisational chart so that the business can survive, grow and prosper without being 100% dependent on you!!!!!

We all left the room full of enthusiasm and excitement and I thought I should take the opportunity to mention some of the people who kindly thrusted business cards in my direction:
  • Martin Davies from NRG networks – a lunchtime networking community
  • Sarah Owen from Referral Institute – they run courses on word-of-mouth marketing

The ‘prize’ for the best business card went to Claire Morgan of Faragher Jones who publish local/regional Fairtrade Directories.

Special thanks go to our ‘resident belly dancer’ Emma – don’t ask if you weren’t there!
Dar Tangerina

And of course special thanks to our hosts, the Barclays team, especially Helen and Brian.
