THE NEXT MEETING: MAY 11

 

THE MIKADO

 

Hosted this month by:

CLIFF FINDLAY, FOUNDER OF TRIBE160

 

A true believer in Word of Mouth Marketing, Cliff launched Tribe160, his own networking organisation.  There are four groups in London, with others opening in Birmingham and Brighton this year. Cliff has also built a WOMM platform to help networkers track and manage their face to face introductions and business, to be launched in May 2017.

 

Cliff will be talking to us about the key issues, and failings, of networking and how we, as networkers, can correct these and squeeze more out of our time to get the best results from face to face networking.

 

 

THE GUEST SPEAKER

 

Hosted this month by: 

PROFESSOR MICHAEL CRAWFORD,

PhD, FRSB, FRCPath

 

Professor Crawford is the director of the Institute for Brain Chemistry and Human Nutrition.

 

His research into brain chemistry lead him to assert in the 1970s that the brain would soon show the effects of changing nutrition and dietary fats.  Since then, brain disorders have become more prominent.  The EU estimated that the cost was 386 billion euros in 2005.  In the UK,  recent estimates by the Department of Health put costs at £105 billion, more than cancer and heart disease combined.

 

How can we deal with such a vast and growing problem?

Meet other business professionals in a friendly environment
