We picked 27 companies we'd like to meet.
Everyone's allowed to select 20. Some lovely software programme will match us with our preferences.
I spoke to the organisers in Mallow today. I was confused about the timetable. I was champing at the bit to know who we'd be meeting.
In our business we practise using the internet fully. We "Google" everyone we're going to meet. We check out whether the business has an internet presence. We even check out its personnel, especially the CEO.
"Have you googled yourself recently?"
Her advice was that you check yourself & your business out on a monthly basis.
The News from today:
- Frank Maguire of BNI Phoenix Chapter in Cork & McCorry Stuart & Co is sorting out a business card for us - at short notice. He's well worth talking to. Wait till you see the print of the design @sabrinadent did.
- Gordon Murray of Murrion Software sorted Paul O'Mahony's Twitter out. He'd been grappling with two identities @marketingwrite (business) & @omaniblog (personal). Solution @twhirl. How do you switch between the personal & the business on Twitter: @twirl is simple. (We'll post more on this another time.)
- Rubicon Centre on Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) campus is where I spent lots of today. Genesis is the name of a programme they run. It's a place worth visiting.
