Our next event was at G Casino in Salford hosted by Simply Networking. Here we met the lovely Neesha, who has kindly offered to host our first expo and networking event!

Our last event of the month was Greater Manchester Business Fair held at AJ Bell Stadium, Eccles. Here we met Vivienne, Account Manager at Concept Hygiene. Vivienne was telling us about the fantastic rates of hire for AED Machines (Automated External Defibrillator).

Over 70,000 people suffer a cardiac arrest in the UK each year, with less than 1 in 5 receiving the treatment necessary to save their lives. This can be prevented with adequate training and an AED machine onsite.

Why not book us to train your employees in First Aid and the use of an AED? We can train you on the machine that you buy or hire from Vivienne so you know exactly what to do!


**We are now taking bookings for First Aid at Work Training! We can also deliver CPR and AED plus Paediatric and Emergency First Aid drop us a line for more info.**

Dawn, Owner of Doing Biz For Yourself

Dawn doingbizforyourself

It was nice meeting you at the networking event Dawn, tell me about what you do.

It's lovely to meet you too. I provide local small and medium businesses with networking opportunities as well as educating them with their marketing. I also coach and mentor business owners, I take them from start-ups to successful businesses. I help them with their personal development, and I signpost to other carefully selected specialised providers, such as training providers and accountants if needed. I help businesses to both make and save money. I started up as a free Facebook community group to help other business members if anything goes wrong. Im passionate about what I do and I believe you should always keep going.

What song motivates you on a rainy Manchester morning?

Its a more recent song that's motivating me at the moment as I am going through a transition with my business, so it would be Pharrell and 'Happy'. I really like Pharrell and a lot of people don't realise that he has been going a long time, they first heard him with this song.

What is your favourite phrase or quote?

My favourite is from Richard Branson, he really inspires me. If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes then learn how to do it later! Doing this has got me to this point, you need to push yourself out of your comfort zone. For example, I was approached by Oldham Business Leadership Group to take part on the board of a Dragon's den style panel. I didn't feel confident and I didn't think that I would be able to do it or if I would be good enough. Im so glad that I did it, I didnt realise how much I knew. Im now on the steering group for the Oldham Business Awards.

Why do you think training is important?

Training is very powerful for people to develop themselves. The trick is to never stop learning! Knowledge is powerful. Everyone will do well from training.
