50 local businesses exhibited at the best of Camberley Business Expo at Camberley Theatre yesterday, Thursday 21st October 2010. Each business was determined to display to their existing clients and potential new prospects that they were alive and kicking and ready to meet the latest economic climate head-on.
The stands were filled with many different businesses from Solicitors - Brooks & Partners and Heald Nickinson, Accountants - Fuller Spurling & Kirk Rice, Promotional Gifts & Clothing companies - Beechleigh Promotions & Connect Two Promotions, Self Storage - Access Self Storage and Courier Company - Scarlet Couriers, MOT & Car Servicing - Swiftest and Yateley MOT, Training Specialists - CMS Training and many other great companies at the top of their game.
Delegates were greeted by 4 six formers from Tomlinscote School, who also carried out other duties, including announcing the Speakers and collecting for our nominated charity - Help for Heroes. They were a superb bunch of young adults and were a credit to their School.
There was also one six former, Kevin Patrick, who had a stand displaying his printed team clothing Team Tops, which is already turning over £5000 per month, surely an inspiration and lesson in what can be achieved through hard work and innovation!
During the day, the delegates were treated to 8 speakers who all spoke very eloquently and interestingly on many different subjects including local businessman John Fairley on Strategic Planning, Steve Coburn from Project 5 on IT Support, Judy Campbell from Spear Travels on the personal touch only an experienced independent Travel Agent can give and Trix Wheeler Mind Body Coach - enlightened her audience with personal presentation skills. Joseph Cruickshank from Rspy demonstrated how by using his unique web based surveillance software, you could watch on your i-phone, your property or business from the comfort of your deck chair on a beach in Spain or the Caribbean.
Particularly interesting was local author, Nigel Cutts, who stressed the importance of persistence in reaching your personal and business goals. His new book LoveatWork is all about achieving genuine sustainable success.
Top prize for innovative and creative design went to the BNI Camberley stand, where Steve James of designpoint put together an amazing sequential display that linked all the businesses represented in the Chapter.
Other business network organisations like Surrey Heath Business Network and 4 Networking were also keen to attract new members to their growing associations.
The events of the day were captured by local professional photographer Rolf Evans who will also responsible for our next big project on the A30 Hoarding.
The Expo was a great success with a strong footfall of decision makers and order placers seeking out the best deals and the best service available.
We are already looking forward to the 20th October 2011, which is the date of the next bigger & better Business Expo!!
