For us, our Friday breakfasts aren’t just a chance to catch up. They are not an excuse to have that Friday fry-up (although, of course, they sort of are!). They aren’t even a good way to start the day with a positive spin.
No, the whole point of getting up early is business. And much as we like each other’s company, that’s why we’re all here. We track each member’s referrals: both those they give, and those they receive. We track both the opportunities, and how much money passes as a result of those opportunities.
Of course, the numbers aren’t 100% right. But in reality they are likely to be under-estimates rather than over the top. Unfortunately we’re not perfect, and a few of us forget to declare a few of the jobs that come good.
And so, what were the numbers last year? The 2019 scores are on the doors!
In 2019 we passed £205,328 of declared business!
Other interesting snippets:
- The person who passed the most referrals last year was Paul French! 33 referrals! Who knew that an ex-plumber would be so prolific!
- The person who received the most referrals was Oli Drake. Of course, everyone needs a great plumber!
- The person who came second in both referrals passed and referrals received was Bindy Gill. We all need a great electrician, and especially one that hands out good business referrals.
- Paul French also declared the most business received from the group. All we can say here is that what goes around comes around! Congratulations Paul.
