New Members Session

Thursday, 14 February 2013 00:00

At this week's meeting two of our newer members, Damian Culhane (Perceptions Coaching) and James Cracknell (Tutor Doctor) will be giving us an insight into their businesses and a bit of background about themselves.

To add a bit of spice to the experience you are invited to follow them on LinkedIn and Twitter over the next couple of weeks to find out snippets of information about them and their businesses.  A quiz will be held at the meeting to see who has learnt the most...  The guys have kindly decided as it will be Valentines Day that they will provide a winning prize of Champagne, flowers and some chocolates.

Damian's Twitter tagname is dc-sales-guru and James can be found at Tutor Doctor ColNrth.

Join us and learn a bit more about our new members and have a bit of fun at the same time.

 

Show & Tell - The Best Business Book You Have Read

Thursday, 31 January 2013 00:00

Have you ever read a business related book that has influenced you in a major way or that has helped develop your thinking about the business world in general?

On Thursday 31st January join us for an interactive session where we ask the attendees to ‘Show & Tell’.  Bring along a couple of books (or at least note their titles and authors) which you would like to mention along with a few words about the content and why you feel it is worth sharing with the group.  Alternatively some other non-fiction book may have been a significant influence – feel free to choose that instead.  

We shall see where the discussion leads and, with luck, everyone will leave with plenty of fresh ideas to explore afterwards.

On Thursday 6th Dec you'll have the golden opportunity to put your IT frustrations, vexations or just general ‘how do I?’ questions to Alasdair. As part of his IT psychotherapy session Alasdair will be sharing the most common problems he deals with and his top tips for caring for your computer, keeping it happy and running smoothly.

THE controversial debate on our police state

Thursday, 08 November 2012 08:30

There is much controversy surrounding the apparent need for constant monitoring of our emails etc., and the supposed threat of terrorism, against the desire for privacy. At what point do we say enough is enough?  How much do we value our safety against the ever increasing monitoring of a police state?  

Business Café member Chris Crace will propose the motion......

'The ever increasing state monitoring of our emails, CCTV etc., is an unnecessary violation of privacy'

Opposing the motion will be Neil Beech.

What's your opinion? Come and join the debate. With opportunity for questions and points from the floor it's going to be an interesting and thought provoking discussion.
