Nice to see you again.
Friday’s blog a private peek?
So here’s a little glimpse into our Friday last week.
And you thought all we do is make stamps & stencils...
We attended the Annual Family Business Place Conference at the Royal Institution, London.
Fabulous place. Busy, interesting day.
You may recognise some of the Clarity Team mingling here.
Last year, I was honoured to be the Opening Speaker.
Must have done something right, because
I was privileged to be asked to speak again.
And you’ll never guess what my subject was!
Yep. Embracing the Social Media and the Power of Blogging!
I wished you all could have been in the audience!
We could definitely show them how it works!
This lady, Penny Power, was a veritable powerhouse in the field, and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to her.
This lady was fabulous, too.
Chairman and owner of Fortnum and Mason.
I was delighted to be able to spend a little time with my favourite, Peter Thornton, as in the chocolates.
See the lady behind Peter in the background?
That’s Helen Thomas, owner of Weston Ciders.
Now this lady, Anita Brightley-Hodges, is the Conference organiser. She and her family did a stirling job.
If you run a family business, and you want to get involved, then please email me, and I will put you in touch.
It’s a fantastic support service. And when you consider that
She is also a dear friend, which might explain why I got the part!
And I got to talk about blogging mostly.
About our community here and how we all get together most days. One lady in the audience asked me how much time I spend daily on blogging. I told her about 2 hours.
The audience gasped. You can imagine a room full of suits and corporate whiz kids would struggle with that notion.
So I laughed, and pointed out that,
not only was it the font of our business nowadays,
but that I REALLY ENJOY IT.
To be able to spend two hours of my day, EVERY DAY, being creative, is like manna from heaven.
Somebody else asked whether I couldn’t delegate it. (Obviously that person sat up and logged the business benefits of blogging, but wasn’t too pumped about wasting 2 hours a day actually writing one).
My answer? “No! I just said I enjoy it!”
To me, this blog is vital.
At so many levels.
Facebook and Twitter are great for spreading the word,
but the blog is my personal key to Clarity.
Long may it continue.
