The Friday Feeling – Networking Inspiration

On the 18th March 2018, we hosted our first Friday Feeling Breakfast. Combining a traditional networking breakfast with an inspirational speaker to gee us up for the weekend, the event went down a storm with attendees. We were so impressed with our speaker Laura Jones that one of our number even booked himself onto the New Forest Marathon an hour later.
Inspirational talk - Laura Jones
The format for the event was as follows:
0730 in the Fontmell Inn, a groovy local public house with teas and coffees for all.
0800 Full English Breakfast consisting of produce from the pubs very own pigs farmed a mile down the road.
0830 Laura Jones from Monix Adventures gave her inspiring talk on her journey of 7 marathons in the last year.

Laura’s story was both inspirational and humorous and we can’t thank her enough for getting us ready for the weekend. Tales of running in -40 degrees in the Yukon and losing her toenails on Everest made us all slightly jealous of her feats. 60 miles through the rolling hills south of Rome or over the highlands of Scotland look very tame in comparison. We also managed to raise a bit of cash for two excellent charities, the Jonny Wilkinson Foundation and the Scouts.
We are now on the lookout for the next speaker for May. If you know of anyone with an amazing tale to tell please let us know. it can be about sport, business, charity or anything that will give us a lift on a Friday morning. Have a great Friday everyone. #madforit
