Are you more a business Pessimist or Optimist?

A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities
and an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties.

Harry S. Truman

Reflection with thanks from Bond Street BRX business networking group’s wonderful, wise London Life Coach George Metcalfe … who always gets us thinking. If you know anyone at work, socially or in your family who needs assistance with a life or work transition, get them to give George a call for a non-obligation conversation to explore if he’s the right coach to do some work with … his office number is 0208 670 2122. Life’s too short to delay making change easier and smoother … : )

Our visitor / new member wish list

BRX Bond Street always welcomes new visitors and potential new members from a diverse range of industries – recent visitors have ranged from an artisan ice cream company to security services and a document shredding company. However, we recently had a meeting where we identified those professions we felt had particularly strong synergies with existing members and  so would be  very likely to get referred business regularly – and, therefore, for whom membership could prove particularly valuable.

If you fall into one of the categories below, it is highly likely our members could have contacts with potential business for you – so you could have a lot to gain by paying us a visit (every Friday morning 7.15am-9am):

travel agents


mortgage brokers

property search companies / relocation companies

hotels or other venues

commercial surveyors

estate agents

catering companies

events organisers and wedding planners

marketing strategy or PR

HR consultants

quantity surveyors

concierge companies

To arrange your visit:

Please contact BRX London Regional Partner David Coburn on 07860 162610 or email  David Coburn via this link. There is no pressure to join, and your visit is an opportunity for you to check out if BRX Bond Street would be right for your business – you are welcome to bring extra guests or colleagues. If your profession is already represented at BRX Bond Street David will be pleased to arrange a visit to another BRX London group so you can see how BRX works (only one representative per profession is allowed). BRX Bond Street is a particularly convenient group for businesses based in Mayfair / Bond Street / Piccadilly / Knightsbridge and surrounding central London areas.
