Ciao Everybody!

During my second working day I understand more about of business.

Rodney, a very kind man, picked me up in his car and he brought me to work. Then I interviewed the “boss” Dave Barr, and I asked him a few questions about his work and about his private life. After lunch we went to Honiton, a small town 10 miles from Exeter for a business meeting. The meeting was set in a typical Devon cottage, in a room full of books, pictures, and things. There were 4 men around a wooden table who were waiting our arrival (me and Dave Barr). They were the organisers of the East Devon Business Club Lunch.

After a sip of fresh water they began to discuss about the lunch event on the next Tuesday, where all the people that own a local businesses can take part and try to find new buyers for their products and new contacts. They planned everything and also they repeated their challenge: “facilitate and increase the local business”.

When we came back, Dave explained to me in a simple way how business works in England and he showed me the cattle market in Exeter where thebestof Exeter had organised the Devon Business Expo. A very interesting location for the many farmers that live in Devon to come and sell their animals

Ops! It’s time to go home! What a busy day!

Passa un buon fine settimana! - Have a good weekend!
