Breakfast Networking with Dame Kelly Holmes!
Saturday, January 24, 2015
This week's Breakfast Friends networking event in Hildenborough wasn't only special because our very own general manager Steve was speaking, but also because it was held at the newly opened Cafe 1809 owned by the wonderful Kelly Holmes! Not only did everyone enjoy delicious coffee and a healthy breakfast (if you haven't been, you really must go, it's exquisite.) prepared by Dame Kelly herself, but we also all got to meet her in person, and what a lovely down-to-earth lady she is too! Steve was honoured to have been chosen to speak at such a special event, and as the day drew closer, and more and more tickets were snapped up, (eventually selling out days before with a waiting list in place), he was also more than a little nervous... but all went extremely well on the day, and guests commented on Steve's:
Slick, interesting and informative talk!Breakfast Friends invited Russell Harper Photography to capture the event, who has kindly got the images ready in double quick time to share with you all...
Steve's presentation touched on all aspects of the business
He held his nerve in front of the large audience!
And what an extremely attentive audience it was too.

Just one of the delicious breakfast choices at Kelly Holmes' Cafe 1809.
We were waited on by Dame Kelly Holmes herself! What a treat.
Such a good turn out for a lively networking session. The cafe was absolutely packed when we left- well done Kelly!
We had a fantastic time, thank you so much for being such an attentive audience and to Sam at Breakfast Friends for organising such a successful event.
If you haven't yet visited Kelly's wonderful Cafe 1809 then we highly recommend you do! Such delicious food and lovely atmosphere, we can see it will be a roaring success.
