roofgardengroupx46.8.11.jpgCloud Bookkeeping recently invited the franchise owners and their partners to The Roof Gardens in Kensington, for a special lunch to celebrate the successful launch and running of their Cloud Bookkeeping businesses. We also thought it would be a lovely way to say thank you to all franchisees for the continued success of Cloud Bookkeeping.

The guests were treated to their own private dining room with balcony, overlooking the gardens and flamingos, which boast wonderful views of London. We are sure a great time was had by all and that was proven in the fact that it went on into the early evening.

Kent & London Business Show

Kent & London Business Show

business_networking300x217.jpgOn 8th July Scott and Michelle from Cloud Bookkeeping Bromley attended the Kent & London Business Show. The show was a great opportunity for them to communicate with motivated business owners, directors and other entrepreneurs who were looking for information, inspiration, advice and new ideas to help them grow or improve their businesses.

The event was a great success and Scott and Michelle got many hot leads; with 2 potential client meetings booked for this week!

Michelle and Scott both entered the speed networking – 1.5 mins x 40 sessions non stop…they were exhausted when they came out but buzzing!

The event was a brilliant opportunity to network as it unites all sectors of business and is the only marketing medium that brings the buyer, seller and products together at the same time and in the same place.

Managing Your Cash Flow

Managing Your Cash Flow

Ever had that feeling when you know your business is going well, but you have no money in the bank to show for it?  Where could it all possibly be going wrong?

With small businesses making up 99 per cent of all UK firms, according to the Federation of Small Businesses, there are many small business owners taking their eye off the ball; they’re so wrapped up in their business, relying totally on gut instinct, they are often in shock when it comes round to paying wages or VAT and the money’s not there.

Mandy Bagot franchisor of Cloud Bookkeeping explains just how you can learn to manage your cash flow effectively and not take your eye of the ball.  Click here to download the article.

Young Enterprise Awards

Young Enterprise Awards

photo300x225.jpgWhat a great night for 9 companies from 6 schools at the Young Enterprise Brent & Harrow final. They set up their stands, had interviews with the judges to discuss their business reports and gave their presentations in the magnificent Harrow council chamber.

This would have been pretty daunting for anyone and these pupils were aged only 15 to 17 years old! Mandy’s role, as a member on the board of Young Enterprise Harrow and Brent, was to escort the Mayor of Brent for the evening, seen here with the Mayor of Harrow.

Mandy said ‘I felt very privileged to be having tea with the Mayors in the Mayor’s parlour!’ Cloud bookkeeping were also one of the sponsors for the event. You can see photos of the night on the website www.harrowye.org

Business Start Up Show

Business Start Up Show

business_startup_show.jpgLast December I attended the Business Start Up Show with my mentor Rachel Elnaugh. The show was a great success for Cloud Bookkeeping and gave me the perfect opportunity to meet potential franchisees directly and talk to them about the different franchising options available to them, potential pitfalls to be aware of and also show them the benefits of partnering with an experience bookkeeping franchise such as Cloud.

As you can see from the photograph both myself, Rachel and our virtual assistant Charlotte Everiss had a fantastic time at the event and I am looking forward to doing lots more business exhibitions in 2011.
