A bucket and spade graphic

Fancy a bit of pre Summer Holiday planning for your business?

A just over half a year review of where you’re at with things?

Some ideas and inspiration?

Some helpful feedback and advice from other business owners (and me)?

Some sea air? Maybe an ice cream?

Come and spend a day at the seaside in Poole with me and other brilliant business owners.

While I can’t guarantee the weather I can provide a great view and great company.

Where and When

Branksome Dene, Poole

What to expect

A chance to review where you’re at with your business plans for this year, share ideas with other business owners, and advice from them and me (Lucy).

You’ll get that ‘day on the business’ you’re always meaning to put in the diary. You’ll also get some real life networking thrown in for good measure.

This is a VERY CASUAL day but that doesn’t mean it won’t be valuable. Come in your finest beach wear, T shirts and shorts are more than OK. The venue is not fancy (at all!) – think village hall on a cliff top.

We will be providing lunch and refreshments so you don’t have to think about that.

This is very much a ‘day out’ on your business with whatever agenda you want to bring along.

It’s not a conference or overly formal event, more a ‘gathering’. An opportunity to chat and be challenged. To ask questions and get answers. A facilitated but not overly structured day of conversations – all designed to help you and your business.

You can choose to talk, listen or do both.

And when we’re done with the day?

Green stripey flip flops

Sit on the beach and plan your next actions.

Perhaps go for a walk, swim, paddle or whatever takes your fancy to plan, plot or ponder.

Or continue conversations you’ve started during the day.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much? (always the first question!)

£99 +VAT (ice cream with a flake optional)

Can I stay over?

There’s lots of accommodation options nearby. If you get stuck (or want my opinion on them!) let me know. The event ticket is just for the day though.

How do I get there?

  • There’s a paid car park next to the venue and free parking in nearby streets.
  • You can get a bus along this road
  • From the train station you can get a taxi (Branksome or Parkstone if you can) it’s a 10 min journey – 15 mins if you’re getting out at Bournemouth station
  • More travel details supplied with your ticket

It’s a 10am start (arrive from 9.30am) and we’re aiming for a 4.30pm-ish finish (we have to be out of the venue by 5pm). That said, we may decamp to the beach, or somewhere nearby afterwards to continue conversations.

Who’s attending?

You, hopefully, along with other smart business owners and people who do brilliant things.

  • How many people will be at the event? – I’m aiming for between 10 – 20. Enough people to make it interesting, but not so many that you won’t get to know everyone.
  • Dress code? Definitely casual. This is not a fancy hotel, it’s a community hall on a clifftop on the beach. I might draw the line at speedos, though (it’s not Love Island!)
  • Can I attend another time? I’m doing this event as a ‘one off’ for now. I may (or may not) do some more events like this in the future. So if you can make this one, come along.
  • When do I need to book? There’s only limited spaces so the answer is ‘the sooner the better’.
  • How do I confirm my place? Book below – your place isn’t confirmed until we receive your payment.
  • Can I bring a business partner?- Absolutely – just buy 2 places.
