The event was easy to understand and relevant to my needs. I wanted to learn something new, and you always learn something when you go to these events. The event centred around knowing your numbers so I'm trying to make more effort to get my top line numbers every month.

I liked the obvious knowledge and expertise of the speakers and how they put the information across in ways that made it interesting. From the point of view of The Marketing Centre we like the initiative that Burgis & Bullock have developed in trying to get local business people together, but it's a little bit difficult for us as we have an independent transparency policy which makes it a little difficult for us to get more involved than we are. I also have other business interests outside The Marketing Centre so I thought it would be interesting to come along and explore that side of it. I learnt some good information from the speakers. I think the talk on the numbers was particularly well done. It showed us that what the numbers might initially seem to be demonstrating, if you dig a bit deeper and know what to look for, might lead you to different conclusion. The session from Brian Jerome on the funding highlighted some alternatives that it's potentially useful to be aware of for my clients. It was all done in an engaged way which I think was helpful. I made a few useful connections as well. It's one of the reasons to attend these sorts of events. I don't think at the moment I can get more formally involved at The Marketing Centre, but I might consider getting more involved with some of my other businesses. I'll certainly be giving that more thought over the next few months. There's a particular project I'm working on at the moment that I might talk to Burgis & Bullock about and see their thoughts on it, so that's something I'm interested in taking forward.

It didn't assume I knew everything and gave me insight, and the ability, to look at my business in a different way, which was refreshing. I didn't really know what I was going to get although I knew it would be something. It's nice to get exposure with other like minded individuals. It's good to network as you never know when there might be crossover. As a business owner it's always good to get exposure. We're new to Burgis & Bullock so it was good to see their office and see how they do things, to reinforce the decision I've made; It's always a daunting decision moving accountants but I feel reassured in that decision. I think the main thing I took away from the event was the ability to look at the figures that we have as a company in a different way. I've always looked at them in method A if you like and they've shown me methods B and C, which spins it on it's head to show it in a new way. I also liked the little mantra; Turnover is vanity, profit is sanity and cash is reality. It's nice to have these little things and the words to live by.

I liked the quality of the speakers. I thought the first chap, from Burgis & Bullock, was very good. I thought the mingling conversations between sessions and at the beginning and end was very good; It was nice to be able to network and talk in a very open way. I liked that unstructured 'you can all just talk now' approach. I was a guest of Oliver who does the VoIP telecom setup for the group. He invited me to see if it was something I would be interested in, so I was there to scope out what type of people and companies were there and what makes them tick. It was exploratory for me. There was some useful information from the financial chap talking about ratios that was quite interesting, and I've still got his document on my desk. It was more sussing out the group of companies to see if its something I want to get involved in. It was a good session and if other firms were looking into getting into a niche network referring group I think it would be a good one to go for.

The Finance Seminar delivered by Burgis & Bullock’s Business Mastermind Group was very relaxed and informal, but very informative and professional. It was held in lovely offices, in a nice location and the staff at the office were all very welcoming, which is really reassuring when you don’t know anyone. The information presented by all the speakers at the Seminar was excellent! I learnt quite a lot about accounting , and I had a few questions which were answered during the Seminar which was great. The added bonus what that I met a few other people, (business owners), in the room who I didn't know previously and I now have a new potential client which is great.

I liked the atmosphere in which the event was set, and the opportunity to network both before and after the event. There was some very good quality information relayed during the presentations, and all the speakers conveyed that very well. I attended because I was looking to join the Mastermind Group and to network with some of the people I'd recently met. I took away the ratios that Sean presented. He very clearly explained the key ratios that I should be looking at in my business.

I thought the event I attended on 6th June was really good; I really enjoyed it. I'll almost certainly attend the next one. I had a completely and utterly open mind. The only ulterior motive I had was to meet somebody from Burgis & Bullock as another business colleague had suggested I might like to do business with them in time. I liked the topic of conversation and the presentations, I liked the fact that I got a copy of the presentation afterwards, and I liked meeting like minded people.

Overall I found the event very helpful and very useful. I like to have presentations on the latest digital news and what's going on so the Google guy was a very good one for me. Having just joined a new organisation who are signed up to Enquir3 I wanted to see what it was all about. It was very useful to understand a lot more about what's on offer and of course it's good to meet people.

I liked the uniqueness of the presentations. I found the one with the cartoon, Tickling Trout, very interesting as I hadn't seen that before. You go to a lot of these events and it's all the same sorts of things so it was nice to see something a bit different. The closeness of the venue to us was appealing and I think the topic as well was relevant. I think the marketing approaches were thought provoking. I also went away with information on the potential use of Google and also contacts as well i.e. other people in the room.
