Sally, Natalie and Julie ready to greet people on our stand at Surrey Business Expo

We experienced our very first live Business Event on 26-27th April, hosting a stand at the Surrey Business Expo. Our own woman-in-the-know, Sally, who had previously been involved in organising the event informed us the expo was back after a Covid-enforced hiatus and so we eagerly snapped up a stand in preparation.

And so, on Monday 25th we found ourselves in the expo hall working out the logistics of our stand, affixing our backdrop and wondering if the TV we were using was a little too big (it wasn’t by the way). It seemed surreal considering ActionCOACH Winchester Basingstoke & Farnborough began during the pandemic to find ourselves at a live event having largely existed in the virtual world, and you know what? It felt good to be back in reality!

Business Coaching AND cocktails….

Swygge's Rewfus Brode sharing his ActionCOACH experience at Surrey Business ExpoWe were extremely fortunate to be joined on our stand by Rewfus Brode and Emily Hooton, the co-founders of Swygge and winner of Entrepreneur of the year at the recent BizX awards. They came armed with their fantastic cocktails and spent their time pouring and chatting with visitors about their own ActionCOACH journey with us so far. We can’t thank them enough for giving up their time to help and for the delicious cocktails they brought with them.

Over the course of the two-day event we met a variety of business owners, both visitors and exhibitors, interested in how we can help them and their businesses. We were delighted to see one of our partners, Koox Agency were present at the expo as well as another of our clients, TaxAntics who should, in all fairness, win the prize for the best-dressed stand (sadly it doesn’t appear that prizes were being handed out….maybe next year?!). Overall this was a great show to be part of and we hope that some of those business owners and entrepreneurs we were fortunate to have met decide to join us to progress their business journeys.
