Never noticed it myself Adrian but now you mention it!!! 

Lovely to help Claire Weingaertner celebrate her businesses 5th birthday - yummy cake.

As a fan of collaborative working I really enjoyed Sarah Brown's 4sight - so succinct and made so much sense.

Well what can I say? I think I need to change my shampoo from Timotei Golden Locks to Libby's Tonic.

Great buzz and I really enjoyed speaking even if the talk of dog and fox poo was slightly alarming during breakfast - you had to be there!! Anyone attending can email me for the handouts I mentioned and I am always happy to talk elsewhere

A distinctly autumnal feel this morning, but I'm sure the rain is much-needed!  Windy   Maybe the tortoiseshell butterfly that insisted on fluttering around the room knew something we don't? 

The usual warm and friendly atmosphere prevailed inside though, and we welcomed our usual mix of regulars, visitors and passporters. Group leader Kath ensured that everything ran like clockwork during the 40 second round and one-to-ones were quickly organised while everyone enjoyed delicious lemon drizzle cake brought by Claire,  in celebration of Focus Accounting's 5th birthday.  Cake Clap

Sarah Brown then presented a fascinating 4Sight entitled "Collaboration - is it just BS?"   

(I should point out that BS in this context means "British Standard" - who knew there was one for collaboration?)  Anyway Sarah's 4Sight certainly got us thinking about how we could collaborate with other businesses, particularly 4N colleagues.  Well worth a listen if you get the chance.

Next time (September 20th) our 4Sighter will be Andrew Miller, on "Removing Emotional Obstacles".  Sounds intriguing!  Thumbs Up
