Gravesend BNI Number One in Kent

There were both, bizarre and familiar elements to the 60 sec presentations this week.

Todd Miller of TDM Plastering skipped through his presentation – literally! Todd used his skills at speed skipping to show off a bit and also as an analogy to his plastering speed. He was a blur of legs and rope and certainly gained everyone’s attention! When Colin (the artist) Howell of C. Howell Decorating gave his presentation, we all sang along to his well-known song. Equally effective!

The 10 minute presentation was given by Mike Thornton of PCL and Thorntons . Mike has been an active member of BNI for nearly 10 years and gave an interesting, clear and informative over-view of his business. Mike offers a comprehensive range of business services and consultancy. His years of experience and useful contacts means he can improve the situation for small and large businesses that are in financial difficulties. He is fully bonded and insured and can help with credit card debt and with Inland Revenue disputes. Mike also runs a debt recovery service, tracing debtors and knocking on doors when necessary. Mike Thornton can justifiably call himself “The Fourth Emergency Service.”

Testimonials are always important as they refer to actual jobs completed within the Chapter and this week there was praise for the excellent work of Darren Walker of Focus Electrical, Gagi Ahluwalia of Minuteman Press, Michael Mew of Riverview Clinics, and Todd Miller of TDM Plastering.

There were six new faces round the table this week. Some returning visitors and some first timers. Working in diverse fields of gardening, renewable energy, architecture and bespoke jewelry design, they had all decided to spend time and energy in getting up early and coming along to a business meeting at 6.30 in the morning. Well,- they seemed to find it worthwhile and passed positive comments on the meeting. With 77 referrals and a staggering £80,000 worth of business passed this week, you can see why new faces are joining the regulars who attend each week.
