Welcome to this one-off special newsletter just for businesspeople in and around Bristol
Business Scene is in the process of reinventing itself and, it’s fair to say, they haven’t finished this process yet. However, I believe the next Business Scene event in Bristol will be well worth your time.
The main attraction is that Grant Leboff will be speaking. For those who have heard Grant before, he needs no recommendation. For the rest, I can assure you that he is compelling, original and imaginative in his views about marketing businesses. If you really want to generate new sales opportunities, it might be time to rethink business conventions and take an alternative approach to marketing your business. All you need are some new ideas…
I’m happy to say that I’m putting my money where my mouth is: I’ve just become one of Grant’s clients.
The event will provide an extended chance to network informally – perhaps with a new set of people for you. It provides food and drink and, on this occasion, it’s free. If that sways you – well, we’re all human! It’s at the Porsche Centre, The Paddock, Cribbs Causeway, Bristol from 6pm to 8.30pm, 3 July. Please book here.
Business Scene offers a wide range of benefits to its members – it’s not really a networking organisation, it just includes networking events in its range of offerings. Worth investigating.
Here is my secret. It is very simple: one sees well only with the heart. The essential is invisible to the eyes.

Pat Metheny and the Metropole Orchestra, Amsterdam, perform one of the former’s irrepressibly exuberant numbers. Don’t let the teeth put you off! (dur: 9:01)

If you have been, thank you for reading.
