Some are avid networkers, others avoid it like the plague. I’m in between. But yesterday’s do at Sam’s Brasserie was definitely one of the better events I’ve attended. I met some genuinely interesting people with whom I think I can do business. Conversation was eased by the most exquisite canapes I’ve EVER had! Sam Harrison and his team run a great neighbourhood bar and brasserie and I’m lucky enough to have them right next door. Mulling this over later led me to realise how very important (for me, at least) is the location of one’s business premises. The great infrastructure that is Chiswick, and my quirky office in the Barley Mow Centre where I’m surrounded by people running all manner of small businesses, without doubt contribute to a positive frame of mind and a spring in my step on the walk to work each day.
