Nockolds Women in Business group met yesterday at the ancient and historic Pledgdon barn, erected in 1548.
The character and charm of the venue was matched throughout by the atmosphere. The convivial air generated by our networkees, all of whom had come to build and develop relationships, is such a vital tool in business.
Our speaker, Andrew Pinkney, of Nockolds Wealth, spoke candidly of his experiences as a husband and father during a time when his wife, Angela, battled with cancer. His very personal story touched all those listening. Andrew’s call to action, to take a moment to review and plan our financial security, was conveyed in earnest to us all.
The conversation did not stop over lunch. Everyone enjoyed the high-tea, a talking point in itself, with mountains of elegant sandwiches, cakes, biscuits and pastries. I saw and heard ideas and business cards being exchanged, but it is the follow up and relationship building that counts. Do keep in touch with those you chatted with and realise the potential that networks offer you. And do come again – we’d love to catch-up.
