10 February 2016 - Exeter Golf and Country Club

Running prior to the lunch, from 9.30 am until 11.45 am, you will also have the opportunity to attend a seminar featuring Listen 2 Win an organisation founded because of an introduction made at an Exeter Business lunch 3 years ago.

Keryn Seal and Robin Williams, who are both England Blind Football players, had been brought along by St Loyes Charity to give a talk and another member, Richard Carpenter of Enterprise Assist, was so impressed by their story and abilities that he helped them form Listen 2 Win Ltd.

L2W specialises in listening and communication skills training as well as offering disability awareness courses that are entertaining, inspiring and motivational. You’re in for a treat if you come along to the seminar that morning. You won’t be playing blind football – that takes far too much training but you will have the opportunity to take part in various games and challenges that will increase your understanding of listening and communicating more effectively. You’ll certainly have a lot of fun.

You’ll also get to meet Keryn Seal captain of the England Blind football team and one of the directors of Listen2Win. Keryn grew up in Wales with an eye condition which meant he had very restricted sight. Nonetheless he took part in as much sport as he could - mostly at the expense of his education. At the age of 20 he lost his sight completely but that didn’t stop him joining the England Blind football team or going on to get a degree. Now he has three children and 101 caps for his country.

Robin Williams may not be able to make the event in person as he is just completing his PhD in Statistics at Exeter University. Robin has been blind since birth which makes his many achievements all the more impressive. He may just send you a message though.

17 February 2016 - The Bristol Hotel

Running prior to the lunch, from 9.30 am until 11.45 am, you will also have the opportunity to attend a seminar 

Work ON your business, not IN your business

As business owners, we are always busy getting new clients, working on our marketing, checking the accounts are done and, of course, delivering our products or services. Sometimes we are so busy that we don’t have time to take a step back and see if all this activity is leading to our ultimate goal. And sometimes we’ve even forgotten what our ultimate goal is.

In this unique series of 2 seminars, business and happiness coach Inge Dowden will help you take that step back and look at your business from a different perspective.

In the first session we will look at the following:
* Is your business giving you the lifestyle you want?
* What are you long-term goals for the business?
* What are some of your personal goals?
* What do you need to do to realise those goals and ambitions?
You will come out of it with a personalised action plan for the next month, that you can work on straight away.

In the second session (23rd March 2016) we will look at the actions you’ve taken since the last session and what the impact has been on your life and your business. We will then follow it up with a more detailed look at what you can do to grow your business.
* Who is your ideal client?
* How can you get more clients?
* How can you make more profit?

Although the sessions are best done consecutively, you can also come to just one of the two if you can’t make both of them. You will always pick up some useful nugget of information or an idea from your fellow business owners that you can implement in your business.

So get your diary out now and make some time to work on your business, not just in it. It will be well worth your time.
