Another thrilling instalment of Derby Hub, with a great turn out and plenty of new faces in the room.

At this meeting, the training was provided by Geoff Seymour (Bluu Sky Connections) on how to make the most of networking. Geoff is a seasoned networker (of more than 10 years) and his tips on how to network effectively, were excellent. Geoff explained how the the emphasis should be on, seeing networking as part of your 'working' day and how building relationships with people, at organisations like Derby Hub is the key to a successful business.

Also at this meeting, we had the second instalment of our 'Ask the Panel' feature. Pensions seemed to be a hot topic for our financial power house panel of; Karen Sheldon (Sheldon Flanders), Nigel Jones (Missing Element) and Tony Miles (Milestone). They also expertly answered questions about how the new government schemes will affect the housing market, skillfully answering rapid fire questions on various topics with ease, demonstrating their knowledge.
