To network? To learn? Why do you go out?

Posted by:

Do you ever go to the same event more than once? Part of me used to say “been there done that and frequently bought the tee-shirt too!” Then I started to crew at personal development and property investment events. I knew the content as an audience member, but now my role changed into one where I had to help others – in a sense “teach” or “clarify” the content for others as they asked questions.

Income – expenses = profit

Posted by:

It’s all too easy to forget that simple question in our pursuit of new business. At a recent talk I gave the speaker before me had this point on his slide. I commented that it was a business critical point.

I have been really aware lately just how much effort some companies are putting into the presentation of their sales offer and wondered whether the presentation or the content was more important.
