Welcome to our newsletter. We like to offer a change from other newsletters which can demand an awful lot of reading…
What is the point of a small business networking?
At NRG, you might get leads or clients, but that is the least of it. NRG networking lunches enable you to meet people with whom you can develop a variety of relationships outside the lunch. This includes developing relationships with people who will advocate your business.
NRG lunches also provide an invaluable source of knowledge and experience collectively from the assembled members. They offer relevant and useful seminars on business subjects. Some people value them as social occasions.
emotional intelligence at work is so committed to the value of NRG networking that we sponsor and host the Bristol lunch.
If you’re uncertain about how to get the maximum from networking (whether you’re a member or not) contact us to discuss bespoke coaching in your networking technique. A short coaching programme will pay for itself as soon as you put on clients.
The next events are on 20 May and 17 June at Berwick Lodge (near Cribbs Causeway) which offers an excellent light lunch in elegant surroundings.
The prelunch seminars are currently by Jill Green, senior trainer at the Referral Institute and are directly related to getting the most from networking.
NRG is offering readers of this newsletter who are new to NRG £5 off a lunch at Berwick Lodge in May and June. Just go to here to book. Select the Bristol venue and enter the promotion code NRGKMCM

This surprisingly unadorned performance of Somewhere over the rainbow is just perfect. We include music videos in the newsletters because music conveys emotions [and Jeremy is also a professional musician] – but just look at Keith Jarrett’s face from 4:15. The simplicity of the interpretation (not dispassionate, not disengaged, just naturally simple) would appear to be at odds with the intensity of emotion conveyed by the pianist’s face. What’s going on? dur 5:50
“Waiter, there’s some ash in my soup!”
“Yes sir, it’s a no-fly zone.”
I thank you
Simon Sinek has “a simple but powerful model for inspirational leadership” it says on the TED website – I think it is more about how to urge people to action. Is that the same thing as leadership? Answers on a postcard, please… (duration c18 min)
The moment a little boy is concerned with which is a jay and which is a sparrow, he can no longer see the birds or hear them sing.
We are born princes and the civilizing process makes us frogs.
No man is a hero to his wife’s psychiatrist.
