Sales Radar

We know what it's like to be super busy and forget to follow up. You're not alone as this is possibly the biggest reason most sales leads get neglected.

SalesRadar is cloud based software which can take care of all those needs. It can remind you of all your important follow ups; it can track your sales. It really can take control of all of that sales noise that is going round in your head, so your brain can focus on delivering excellent value to your clients.

Our system is designed to help you work in a structured way to ensure you never miss a client opportunity ever again. In fact it goes a step further because not only do we offer a simple and really easy to use system - it can actually help you find new clients too!



First Friday Network

The First Friday Network is a free business networking event held monthly on various Friday lunchtimes, currently with meetings across East and West Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, Hartfordshire, Lancashire and growing across the country! The network is looking to continue it's expansion nationally. The concept is: free entry, no pre-booking, no ‘lock-outs' - just an informal gathering in a welcoming environment - where people feel relaxed and under no pressure to perform a ‘60-second elevator pitch'. Every person that runs a First Friday group is a keen networker and understands the benefits of being known locally, reaping the rewards of the extra exposure to the business community.

The Biz Expos

"The Biz Expos is the UK's Number One B2B Business to Business Exhibition Show, with 5 shows throughout the UK, including Greater Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, Nottingham and Reading.

Everyone, from the biggest leading named companies to the work-from-home mothers has the same chance at the best stands.

Last year, we introduced the Airline Pricing Strategy for our shows: the first 10 stands at each show are sold for £149+VAT. The second 10 are sold for £199+VAT. The third for £249+VAT, and the rest are sold for £299+VAT. We also set aside a budget to ensure we have some of the UK's best motivational speakers attend our shows to give you the full benefit of how you can get the most out of and expand your business.

The Women & Families Resource Centre

The women & Families Resource centre is a registered charity based in Wolverhampton which supports, empowers and advocates for vulnerable and disadvantaged women and families to overcome their barriers and improve their quality of lives. We facilitate the integration of women into the community whilst empowering them to reach and achieve their full potential, focussing on preventative and early intervention services. We therefore, run programs and activities which encourage women to be self-reliant, to identify their own needs, make their own choices and create their own solutions.

Our services are free to any woman regardless of their race, culture or religion. Many of our service users have complex situations with issues such as poverty, domestic violence, rape & sexual abuse, culturally harmful practices, mental health difficulties and many more.

For many years, WFRC has demonstrated that women and families can be their own healers with the proper life skills and counselling. Even the most overwhelmed individuals can tap hidden springs of resilience and discover their own competence and hope; the most disruptive families can thrive when security and support replaces chaos and inconsistency in their lives. Families can change, and with that, communities can become more productive and independent.
