Our Last South Norfolk Business Breakfast of 2019
As the sun rose over the tranquil setting of Barnham Broom, guests started to arrive at the Hotel & Spa eagerly looking to get their day started right with a morning of breakfast and networking.
Upon entering the building, you sensed that Christmas was around the corner and this was possibly due to the fact the hotel had a recent delivery of 30 Christmas Trees. All beautifully arranged along the entrance, past the welcome desk leading up to the hall – a festive treat!
The mellow festive ambiance continued throughout the first part of the morning, where our guests had the opportunity to meet old acquaintances and new businesses.
Representing our featured charity was Zoe from Creative Arts East. She was raising awareness of the wonderful things they do, improving skills, health and wellbeing, decreasing isolation, making a real difference to those rural communities – all through the power of the arts.
Conversations were in high gear, trickles of laughter were in the air accompanied by the aroma of freshly pressed coffee, after which we were gently called to our seats for breakfast.
Once breakfast was finished, our guests welcomed speaker John Dolan to the stage. John works as a Counter Terrorist Security Advisor. He explained that he was part of the team ERSOU (Eastern Region Special Operations Unit).
We received an informative overview of how they can help businesses if ever found in a terrorist situation. Whilst this is a subject most would choose not to think about, it was quite reassuring to learn that there is a specialist team in place that could help in many ways and most importantly; at no cost.
Our event then drew to a close and all guests were ready to start their day.
