I don't normally attend events like that but Sean Farnell invited me so I went on his recommendation, I did learn a couple of things which was a pleasant surprise for me. I got a couple of ideas and probably a bit more open mindedness regarding attending This kind of event.

It was engaging all the way through. I was just wanting to understand the whole process and the benefits of BMG. It gave me a very clear picture of what those benefits would be. Very well run event.

What stood out was the quality and level of individual who were at the event. I've been to a lot of networking events where you have a lot of people who are sales people from venues, or some kind of franchise, and they're all selling basically; the thing about the Burgis & Bullock Business Mastermind Group event I went to is that the people who were there all had some sort of business level responsibility so we could have that owner to owner conversation and share stories. I've only been a business owner for 3-4 months and there were a lot of people there with experience, at director level, with a lot of responsibility. It was the strategic content; you sit down and have a coffee and biscuit, which is great, and everybody talks. I felt I was in the right sort of room in that instance, it had the right level of formality for me. There are a lot of networking events where it's very forced and feels like some sort of pyramid scheme but the Burgis & Bullock Business Mastermind Group event wasn’t like that; the content was very relevant to business owners. Everyone introduced themselves throughout the room which was good. It was the right sort of people and the right level of formality. I liked the people who were on that level having a chat. I was contacted by somebody from Enquir3 who mentioned that Sean Farnell was keen to speak to us about digital development and api (?) with the Enquir3 software and that it might be worth looking at this Virtual Finance Director, and I’m always interested in something that involves a digital transformation for me or my clients, and I was interested to see what businesses were there. cont on separate doc sent by email.

We felt the first part was inspiring in terms of how to manage your time and your business. It was good to network as well; the people there were friendly and knowledgeable. The idea of it was for us to get more of an insight on things that would help to manage the business and the employees. The Director is such a busy person that it sometimes falls onto the back burner, and I think we wanted to see how to make that a priority and how to manage your time. We were really impressed by Sean and what he does, and we've planned to work with him going forward, with what he can offer us in terms of accounting knowledge. We gained a knowledge of how to priorities certain things and how to work, and how to prioritise the people in the company and work together so as not to get over stressed. There was a lot of audience participation; people really did get involved.

It wasn't a normal formatted networking meeting where people just pass cards like confetti backwards and forwards and ask to be referred to this company or that company. It was much more of a supported, strategic type, mastermind group. I also liked how passionate the members were about the group, and the pastries were lovely. I was hoping to get a meeting with Sean from Burgis & Bullock. The seven yes questions were what I took away, although I can't recall what they titled that section. It was a great event and I'd give it 10/10. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I liked the power of the Virtual Finance Director; I think it's very helpful to businesses to be able to identify first where they can improve their business as it stands at the moment, and it gives them something to work from in terms of projecting forward. I was invited by Sean Farnell who I've worked with previously, and also by Steve Darnell. We operate in the funding market so Steve had asked me to go along with a view to becoming a funding partner. I think the networking side of things looks very, very positive.

What stood out about the event for me was the profile of the businesses that were in the room. These were small business but they were not micro businesses; they were substantial contributors to their regional economy. I was looking to see how other people would respond to the proposition and see if there was a collective agreement that this was a good concept. The answer was yes from the feedback I saw on the day, the involvement and engagement by participants was strong and I think it was received well by those that attended. I think it's suitable for businesses that are perhaps owner operated businesses that are large, and either want to grow further or improve their profitability through better practice.

I liked the frankness of the delivery; it was quite straightforward and easy to understand. I liked the way Steve Darnell delivered his element of it, and Sean Farnell too. The two of them work together well as they complemented each other in what they were doing and how they dealt it. I'd had a conversation with Sean when we were looking at my books and I'd said I need some business advice on developing the business as a whole; growth etc. Sean mentioned that he'd been looking at not only the numbers from the accounts point of view, but that he was moving into business management and mentioned the seminar. I can see that there's a business coaching element to it and I can see the benefits of that, and the fact that you are using other people to bounce your ideas off; using them as non-executives if you like.

The event was extremely well organised, very professional, and the objectives were very clear. The presentations were excellent, and there was great interaction with those present. I wanted to understand more about how accountants are facing the challenge of making tax digital, and using Virtual Finance Director to develop their business advisory services. I took away a much better understanding of how Virtual Finance Director will help accountants to provide forward looking guidance and strategies to help their clients grow. David Mack's session on asking the right questions was very useful. This was also a great opportunity to get to network with like minded business owners, all seeking to grow their businesses.
