Well we don't things by halves here at EBC so after the initial panic of lockdown was over we got to thinking how we are going to continue in the spirit of Get Inspired, Get Involved, Get Connected.
Now the committee had to find a way to get together to discuss all this - group emails just weren't going to do the job so over to Zoom it was.
It all began with our first committee meeting over Zoom which went brilliantly, it was just so lovely to see everyone.
We got so excited and felt so confident with it that we decided to go ahead with the AGM via Zoom too - there's no stopping us!
It was a beautiful and a bit emotional AGM on 23rd April, with the due formal updates but most of all with the heart-warming supportive spirit that distinguishes our wonderful tribe.
All due process was performed but also a lot of chat and support for each other too. Lot's of feedback and plans for going forward.
One of the highlights was Lynne McMurray giving us a wonderful testimonial and her top 10 reasons for taking the leap to join the club. It is so fabulous that we will give it a whole blog post of it's own. Thank you Lynn for your wonderful heartfelt words. We all got a bit emotional.
We reassured all members present that we are very active and ensuring that all trainings continue, albeit virtually, but of immense value as always. We felt that now, more than ever, that we will ensure you all feel part of something bigger.
Please keep in touch with us and let us know what you need - it's YOUR club.
Look out for plenty of virtual training's and even First Fridays!
Till we all meet again in person - we send you all a virtual hug!
Edinburgh can get a bit crazy over the summer so First Fridays and events take a summer break. However there's no break for our hard-working president Kate Bell.
Kate took an early start on 3rd of August to travel to Dundee to attend the Association of Scottish Business Women ASB EGM at Dundee & Angus Chamber of Commerce. Being part of EBC means that all our members automatically come under the umbrella of ASB too - bonus! This means that we have a great network of business women across Scotland with whom we can communicate.
Here's Kate enjoying the sun which came out for this fabulous pic with Oor Rabbie Wullie! She had a great day getting motivated to bring us more ideas for taking EBC forward.....watch this space!
Please get in touch if you'd like to become a member.
