Alongside the solicitors, accountants and financial services (though don’t get me wrong – these services are indispensible!) you meet some really unusual and innovative businesses.
The stand-outs for me today were:
Gibbons Gardening who gave me a packet of meadow seeds and had a conversation about how wrong it is to weedkiller nettles. And anyone who has a monkey for a logo can do no wrong…
e-motion electric vehicle company who sell electric bikes. This may be the way forward for someone like me who lives in the middle of the countryside.
Red Penguin consulting for having a randomly coloured animal as a name.
CS Handwriting Analysis – though I was too frightened to show Christina mine…
Young at Heart – who will do an artery age check to see if you are furry on the inside
Inner Flame – who do team and confidence building through fun activities for 14-19 year olds
Solomon Training – who help unemployed people with their basic (and beyond) maths English and IT skills.
Severnprint for their total commitment to quality and eco-friendly printing (and because they gave me lots of free notepads).
And also: Frank Stobrawe from PAT Testing Services who gave me (dare I admit it) some handy tips on marketing via Amazon and QR codes!
