On 21st December we will turn the River Wey into a beautiful River Of Lights. We are inviting the residents of Guildford and the surrounding towns and villages to make floating lanterns from halves of oranges, hollowed out and with a tea light. They can then come and place it along with over 500 other floating lantern candles in the river.
There will also be lantern sculptures, fire breathers, a folk choir, and the Wishing Tree...… Continue

Are you dreading the thought of having to write all those Christmas cards? Each year it seems to be more of a chore unless I take control of it. The trick is not to do it all at once but to schedule 15 minutes at a time. Then it is not overwhelming and you will have a better chance of getting it done
without too much stress.
Here are my 12 steps to Heaven.… Continue

Whaddya mean, snow?? Remember the paralysing effect of six inches of the white stuff last Winter? Let's hope it holds off for the festive season, so we can make it to all the parties and networking events coming up soon...
Next week sees the Business Startup Exhibition at Earl's Court. I love expos - I always come away with plenty of useful leads, and I try to get to a couple of free seminars from… Continue

It’s all to easy to forget to keep focused in life. This applies to all aspects of life; work, love, sport etc.
I was reminded of this at the weekend. I have a wedding to attend this Saturday, I have shopped and shopped and was still without a dress until Sunday. I went to bed Saturday night picturing the dress I wanted
to buy and unlike my previous shopping trips I knew exactly what I
wanted. Up I got Sunday morning, focused on the…

Differentiation, Differentiation, Differentiation!
How do people in your business network know you exist? Are you visible? And is your company as visible as you would like it to be within your particular arena? If you are visible, are you getting the results you want or has business slowed to a crawl? Could it be perhaps that something in your business, without your knowledge or realisation, is beginning to slip out of your control? Could it be about your branding? And I’m not… Continue

‘Season of mist and mellow fruitfulness’ as Keats would have it (or fog and frost, if you prefer a more accurate picture today!) Either way, there’s plenty of festive networking in the pipeline to ‘warm the cockles’, where you can promote and grow your business by building your connections and getting your face out there.
Talking of faces, are you one of the 15% of NiS Members yet to post your photo to your My… Continue

A great evening was had by all who attended, it would have been great to have a few more of those who said they would or might come to have come along, but all I can say....it's their loss.
Kevin Green arrived at the Ambassadors and we settled down to listen to his story, embedded within were nuggets of information to think upon later.
Then we had a small auction and so a donation to Chase Hospice, Make a Wish and Amber Foundation
Kevin had also been… Continue

So, the gales are upon us, it gets dark at 4pm, and 'It's' back to haunt us - by which I mean the dreaded 'C' word - Xmas! Stopping some way short of 'bah, humbug!', I'd like to register a mild 'tut-tut' at being bombarded with tinsel and teddy bears 'from here to Nativity', on TV, in shops, in magazines and through the letter box.
Having said that, I'm more than happy to have lots of Christmas specials in our… Continue

As you reflect on 2010 and prepare to welcome 2011 - an hour of your time can transform a young life. Donate the last hour of your 2010 salary to Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation for Disabled People to make this happen.
QEF Neuro Rehabilitation Services in Banstead, Surrey, has an urgent need to equip more high dependency facilities to help young adults with acquired brain injuries, such as Emily:
Emily’s parents were told that she would always be trapped within her… Continue

I had an exciting time over in Weybridge at Brooklands radio this afternoon. I had been invited by Samantha New-Fielding, who has a weekly slot on the afternoon programme. She asked me to speak about using astrology in business, Graham Laycock, the presenter, started by asking - HOW?
Well, it depends on how successful you want to be said I. Many prominent people have used astrology in business, early in the twentieth century the famous American magnate J.P. Morgan bluntly proclaimed… Continue

Bonfire night again - don’tcha just love fireworks? Now call me old-fashioned, but I miss the old 'Penny for the Guy' routine in the run-up to 5 November. Trick or treat just doesn't do it for me, I'm afraid... But enough of the nostalgia, already - let's look forward to a bright future out there in Networkland :-)
We've had lots of new sign-ups to NiS again this week. A very warm NiS welcome on behalf of all our… Continue
