BNI Parkside

Parkside is a lunchtime chapter that meets near Long Eaton on a Friday and apart from a real-live hawk and ferret (yes, I kid you not!) I met some interesting members including:

Gary Bullock gave one of the best 10 minutes’ presentations I have ever seen. This included a live hawk and a very lively ferret. Check his site for more animals!

Ian Wright is a long-time online contact but it was good to meet face to face, He is always looking for quality distributors in the vehicle industry.

Kim Kimberley was a very welcome introduction as her son Leigh Timmis is currently cycling around the world! She is an inheritance specialist

Zoe Naylorwas another useful contact whose company markets a range of “The Best Of British Products”

Sara Gration manages to make bookkeeping exciting!

Jiten Raikundalia is the enthusiastic owner of Minuteman Press and kindly offered to do me some visiting cards. See more about his businesshere.

Roger Murrow has been a great source of contacts and assistance. He says, “MMC 2100 are a marketing and communications company who specialise in providing competitive, integrative, and cost effective marketing services.

Thanks
