Today was our last meeting at the Leighton Buzzard Golf Club & from next week we will meet at our new home which is ‘The Dukes’ 7-9 Leighton Road, Heath and Reach, LU7 0AA.
The meeting started today with a potted history of Mike Holmes of Holmes & Co Accountants on his passage from Employment to becoming Self Employed together with an insight into how he expanded his business and built a property portfolio.
We then went around the room so the members could give their 1 minute presentations which also included a visitor Angie White of Genie Nutrition and 2 substitutes David Harrison & Tessa Baker standing in for members.
Tessa then stepped into the vacant 5 minute education slot and gave a marvellous impromptu presentation on the benefits of team work and creating critical mass to reduce expenditure, & the importance of budgeting & cost control.
We then finished off by agreeing to carry our referrals & testimonials over until next week as we were running out of time and did have some items of any other business to discuss, after which we left to go onto our appointments or back to the office and to look forward to trying our new meeting venue next Wednesday.
