In business (especially in a business like TLD, where we’re doing projects and services for our clients) you can plan your day/week/90 day goals all you like but every single day unexpected things will happen.
Insight, advice, news and chit chat
When I met Stuart and heard his story, I had to try his peanut butter. Luckily he had brought a jar with him to that BNI breakfast meeting! So I bought it off him.
Can you believe it, I have since met up with him twice to get 2 dozen jars, and given them to friends and family. People call it “Peanut Butter Crack”
I was interested by the story to begin with, and I promise you this peanut butter is AMAZING. Below – my interview with Stuart.
I just rejoined BNI, after taking a 2 year break. For those who don’t know, it’s a referral networking organisation, with each group having weekly breakfast meetings. I joined in 2002, did 12 years, then decided “that’s it for me” and left in 2014. but visiting a new group in 2016 got me re-enthused. I am now a member for over a year at BNI St Paul’s – so let me know if you want to visit!
From time to time we like to give a shout out to our wonderful clients. And one such client is Eaton House Group of Schools – our main contact there is Rupert Back and we have been working together for many many years now!
I am always amazed at the talent we have in our own team at TLD but sometimes I look slightly outside the company – Elisa’s husband Nick!
Behold behold – some instagram images below.
Surprisingly, sales team and marketing teams don’t necessarily bond as much as they could.
I am working with a couple of membership organisations and have just written a long email full of ideas for one of them. This was the natural start of a super useful blog post – this one!
This is specifically for those of you who run a club, membership organisation, peer group or closed group community.
Many of these groups have a website and use social media, but they aren’t necessarily bringing out their “unique greatness” in all the ways they can!
I was alerted to this infographic by Emeric Ernoult from Agorapulse, made by the guys at Seriously Social who partnered with G2Crowd (the “#1 tool review company in the US”) – it’s got a comparison on the top 5 Rated Social Media Management Tools.
Social media is not a new trend, but it is certainly one that’s here to stay.
Ever think you could do with a bit of improvement on your writing style?
One of the more unusual parts of my “job” is helping people write their blog content. Often, after a workshop, as a sort of freebie, I offer people my expertise in the form of notes, feedback, corrections, grammar edits and formatting.
