We at Glove Factory Studios have decided that after several years as ‘Holt Business Network’, Spring is the right time to refresh our monthly networking mornings.
Introducing: Rooster Talks.
Set in Holt, in the Wiltshire countryside, our morning talks are there to kickstart your Friday mornings, once a month. Delivering topics from local business people which serve to help you and your business develop, Rooster Talks also gives you the opportunity to meet inspiring and like-minded individuals over coffee and croissants.
Very few organisations know why they do what they do. Why is not about making money. That is a result. Why is the very reason the organisation exists. Why is its purpose. Richard Branson, co-founder of the B Team, describes their vision of the future as a world in which the purpose of business is to become a driving force for social, environmental and economic benefit. Frederic Laloux in his book Reinventing Organisation, views the next stage in the evolution of human consciousness, when applied to organisations, as an independent force with its own purpose, and not merely as a vehicle for achieving management’s objectives.
Putting purpose at the heart of strategy is a key element in the work Peter Quintana, of High Growth Knowledge Company, does with his clients. Purpose embedded in the DNA of a business sustains higher growth because it gives direction through rapid change and generates the momentum to drive through the growing pains and challenges experienced by high growth businesses.

B2B communications consultancy Content Coms and its partner company, Mike Garlick Design, are calling for businesses to re-think their approach to customer engagement by making a pledge to their Bring Back The Brochure Manifesto.
With consumer appetite for digital media apparently u-turning, a 21st century reimagining of the humble brochure could well give ambitious businesses an edge.
However, the drab and dreary brochures that are the ‘norm’ for so many SMEs are unlikely to hit the mark.
Dare to be different
Think of a brochure and the chances are a picture of a mundane, corporate sales tool comes to mind. But, best 21st century brochures dare to be different. They provoke readers with abrupt, surprising headlines. They include out-of-the-ordinary visuals. They draw people in through engaging storytelling and powerful creative.
1. A brochure doesn’t need to look like a brochure.
Or, at least, it shouldn’t look like the brochures we’re used to seeing. By daring to be different, a brochure commands its target’s attention.
2. A brochure should be unique.
Present your brand’s story in an innovative way. (Our own ‘Little Book’ series of micro-brochures are perfect examples of a format that delights, informs and engages.)
3. A brochure should aim for longevity.
Brochures shouldn’t be a short-term fix. Use great messaging and strong visuals to tell a story that lasts.
4. A brochure should show your personality.
Templated emails often strip brand personalities away. A brochure is a chance to show your human side.
5. A brochure should be memorable.
The sheer volume of e-communications that are fired out ensures each new e-message is but fleeting. A brochure should be notable – or even extraordinary.
Make 2017 the year your brochure collateral bounces-back, give us a call.

Do you find yourself having to pedal faster and faster just to stand still, or are overwhelmed by the burgeoning demands in your growing business?
Paul Wielgus is a qualified and experienced coach and facilitator. He works across a range of local and international projects, all unified by his passion for the transformative power of Mindfulness.
With over 22 years of meditation practice, and as a senior consultant and trainer with Potential Project (the global leader in corporate based mindfulness training), Paul is acutely aware that the current ‘fad’ for mindfulness can sometimes produce a yawn and possibly a copy of the ‘Ladybird book of Mindfulness’ for your birthday or Christmas present! However, the type of Attention Training he brings to both global and small growing businesses is very different, practical and highly effective.
It’s not just about stress reduction, resilience, and well being but also about team and culture building, productivity and operational effectiveness.
Paul’s brand of Attention Training gets to the heart of our modern personal and collective problem, which is the distraction epidemic we are all feeling during these turbulent times, and he will demonstrate how simple and practical Attention Training techniques can transform you and your business.
