I’ll be presenting at AMITPRO – 6th April, Arden Hotel, Solihull

A last minute reminder that the April meeting of AMITPRO, the Association of Midlands IT Professionals, takes place on Tuesday 6th April at 1730 at the Arden Hotel in Solihull.

The meetings normally take place the second Tuesday of each month, but this month we moved the date forward a little as we were hoping to accommodate a very special speaker from the US – the writer of one of my favourite blogs – Small Biz Thoughts – and author of many books, Karl Palachuk of KP Enterprises of Sacramento, CA.

Sadly, due to circumstances out of his control, Karl won’t be making it to the UK after all due. Many people put in this situation might rant about the injustice of the system, or the unfairness of life – but not Karl – you can read his article “Making Lemonade a Lifestyle Choice” over at the Relax, Focus, Succeed Blog to discover exactly how Karl dealt with the situation. We look forward to seeing Karl another time when he’ll be more than welcome to join us!

The show must go on though, and so yours truly will be speaking as planned, and we’ll have some prize giveaways and some bonus presentations and discussions on the evening. I’ll give you a tip ahead of time – BRING SOME BUSINESS CARDS!

“Just wanted to do a bit of shouting about our next AMITPRO meeting. It’s one we’re really excited about!

First, we’ve changed the date. Our meetings are usually on the second Tuesday of every month but we’re rearranged to accommodate one of our speakers. This means the date of the meeting is 6th April

So, the speakers, in no particular order!

Business Processes for SMB IT companies

How Richarduse them in his business, and how they can help businesses of all sizes rapidly grow. From the one-man-band where the owner is looking to take on his first employee but can’t find the time to take that step, to the bigger business where processes can help individuals grow in responsibility and encourage rapid business growth –  Richard will speak about the tools his company uses and the benefits you can expect from systemising your SMB IT business.

Richard has made great strides as a business owner in the years he’s been an AMITPRO member so it’ll be great to hear how something at the very core of his growth has been put together.

He went on to become one of the first IT companies in the UK to gain Accredit certification which is a testament to the hard work Richard put into the processes used to run his business.

We’re trying to encourage more content from within the group so it’s fantastic Richard has stepped up to do this.”
