It was great to pop into the Devon Business Expo last week and meet up with some of the most inspirational businesses in the county.
This was a flying visit for me as I’m up to my ears in that ‘orrible work stuff, but I was delighted to finally meet Mr & Mrs #DevonHour and admire the camper van lent to them by Devon Dubs. It was also a chance to catch up with some ‘old’ faces from the Deer Park Hotel, Cosmic Ethical and Devon Air Ambulance.
I arrived just in time to sit in on the media panel seminar and hear the latest from the good folk at the Express & Echo, Heart FM, Radio Exe, and event organiser, Best of Exeter. Also on the panel was Andy Cooper, editor of Devon Life, who wowed us all with his slightly controversial take on the power of the media!
It was fun to chat with some of the Best of Exeter team – it may seem strange that I know the Best of Wimbledon & Merton crew better than the locals, but that’s another story!
There was much more going on – I didn’t have time to take part in the speed networking and would have liked to stay for the Tweet Met. However, I’m delighted to report that even in the short time I was there, I hooked up with two new potential clients – next time I’d better stay longer!
Well done to everyone involved, there was a lovely atmosphere at the event and good to see so many businesses taking part.
