Diane Morgan was our rep at last week’s Swindon Connections meeting at Swindon’s Jury’s Inn. “I made several new contacts and bumped into an old friend who I hadn’t seen for nearly four years. I was also introduced to Dave Plunkett who’s recently taken over the running of Swindon Connections – he’s got some interesting and innovative ideas for future meetings.” The guest speaker was Ben Kench whose unlimited enthusiasm for seeing small businesses develop caused quite a stir. Amongst his 7 tips for business growth is the importance of getting a really good business coach. In fact he recommends it as His Most Important Tip.
The next Connections meeting will be on Thursday 24th May at the Menzies Hotel in Swindon from 6pm until 8.30 and will include the new facilitated connections event which has proved successful in the past.

Slow, steady growth?
By the way, did you catch Sir Mervyn King on the radio the other day? The Governor of the Bank of England was giving the annual BBC lecture during which he predicts “slow, steady growth for the UK economy in 2012”. However, he admitted that the Bank of England must take “a share of the responsibility” for the financial crisis.
Let’s hope he’s got it right this time.
