It has been been a great week this week. I have been at the Business Startup Exhibition at London Olympia with the team from Bizpro. They are a virtual assistant business run by Managing Director Kerry-Anne Orr. She asked me to go along and help to promote their business. There is a lot of synergy between Bizpro and PAH Accounting, our services compliment each other well, so I was only too happy to help out.
She enlisted the help of Simon West and Carl Wheatley of Nett Sales Resource. They were the geniuses behind the Hawaiian theme. That’s right we had a Hawaiian themed stand at a Business exhibition! One of the key things that Bizpro promotes is the fact it helps business owners to save time and concentrate on the things they are good at, leaving the administration functions to the experts. This is where the relaxed theme stemmed from.
As part of the theme our stand was kitted out with palm trees and deck chairs as well as real sand! All of the team members wore blue Hawaiian shirts and we were giving out Lei’s (hawaiian necklases). This really did draw us a lot of attention. Added to that we were offering 15 minute surgeries which also proved very popular.
The three other team members were Kevin Orr (Kerry’s husband!), Erika Smith and Alison Wiltshire (Bizpro Franchisees). This gave us a great team of people to promote the company.
Kerry also had a speaking slot which was extremely well received with a full room of attendees and some great compliments afterwards.
Overall it was a great couple of days whcih should lead to some great new business for all parties involved.
