I love the way we meet a huge spectrum of interesting Norfolk businesses - from Chris Batten (the Rainmaker), Kath Temple, a success coach who is referred work by Paul McKenna, Richard Maun, who has written some of the best books for new businesses that I've read, Roger Pemberton, a business coach who is involved in the Norwich Lanes, to a Norfolk catering company who have been catering for the stars.
Chris Batten, who has been helping to turn around businesses across the world, has decided to return to Norfolk and use his expertise to help local SMEs via his Rainmaker Club, which gives them access to his advice and help, along with a range of useful business materials.
Kath Temple is a personality in her own right - she has a knack of making everyone she meets feel special - and she, too, has helped big name businesses turn around their profitability and hit targets that they thought were unachievable.
Then there's Richard Maun - author, business coach and programme director at Cranfield University. Richard had already written 2 books - "My boss is a B@st@*d" and "Leaving the B@st@*ds Behind". He has now just published a book aimed at job hunters, with some invaluable tips and checklists. Featured in the Sunday Times, Job hunting 3.0 is a must read for anyone looking for a job or anyone interviewing people for a job.
Roger Pemberton is actively helping the Norwich Lanes, the independent shops which help make Norwich one of the top 10 shopping destinations in the UK. Roger regularly posts blogs on thebestofnorwich with snippets of advice to help local businesses.
One of our most recent clients has worked in desserts and the antarctic to feed film crews across the world, but is now looking to work more locally in Norfolk - alongside feeding film crews and catering at horse trials and events, The Event Team are looking to provide catering at local weddings and corporate events.
What makes The Event Team different is that, alongside providing the usual catering, they have hospitality trailers so that they can prepare and cook your food on-site and provide the marquee and seating for your event.
Ideal for weddings, corporate events, team building, or even secret meetings (where the trailer can be set up in the hidden depths of the countryside) the possibilities are huge.
Richard Curtis, producer of " The Boat That Rocked" told them that theirs was the best food he and his wife had eaten in fifteen years of film production.
So there you have it - just some of the hidden gems in Norfolk.
