Fancy a New Challenge?

Have you ever thought about running your own business? 🤔 Most people think about it but very few actually do it. 😵‍💫 I’ve always had an entrepreneurial mindset right from a young age when the bubblegum machine outside our local…

FBN Members are Recruiting!

Many of our members are looking for staff to join their teams; are you looking for a new challenge? Maybe one of these roles could suit you. ********************************************************************************Rawlins Davy, Solicitors and Mediators, have a vacancy for a legal assistant/secretary within…

I recently had some new business cards designed by another FBN member, Kath at Spike Design and asked Harry Bidgood at Anything Printed if he could sort out the printing at short notice as I was attending a national conference. Harry stepped up to the plate, worked with me with the proofs and delivered ahead of schedule and of the highest of standards. If you need any printing doing, Harry must be your first point of call. He works tirelessly, often against tight timelines imposed by people like me who do not take that into consideration when planning such things. I highly recommend Harry at Anything Printed.

Over the past 20 years, I’ve continually networked as it’s been the life blood of success in my business career.

There are a lot of networking opportunities in the area (I ran 6 venues for over 4 years) so it’s important that you choose the ones that are right for you. FBN attracted me for 3 main reasons.

1. It’s relaxed, it’s good fun, it’s very friendly but still professional.

2. Unbelievable value for money

3. Genuine referrals from within the group. It’s the reason that there’s a waiting list for new members.

As the Director of  Brooklyn Freehold Ltd, I was tasked to oversee the repair and re-engineer of our gates at our property in Poole. I approached Kelvyn Green of Greenlight Electrical, and a site visit was arranged.

Kelvyn offered a solution which previous contractors hadn’t, it was a cost-effective re-engineering of our gates to provide a compliant health and safety solution, at a sensible price. The work was duly undertaken over a 4-day period.

We now have working gates that comply with the safety regulations and all the residents within the block are extremely happy with the solution and work completed.

The workmanship and attention to detail was truly excellent, what I’d refer to as proper artisan skills. The expertise and knowledge of Greenlight in respect of our gates and what was required, was very impressive.

They have been referred to our managing agents who are keen to instruct them to assist with other blocks they manage.
