Thanks to Sat for being willing to come over on Tuesday from Hansons Estates by Seven Kings station. Sat started working for himself at the age of 19 selling computers and he set up his estate agent and letting business 20 years ago. He also runs a travel agency in the City.
For Sat, putting time and energy into networking and helping others is important. He is Chairman of the Seven Kings Business Partnership that is a community group working to make the shopping areas (Seven Kings, Goodmayes and Chadwell Heath) attractive, vibrant and safe. The group is hoping to run a couple of pop up markets this year. He is also part of BNI (Business Networking International) and runs the local chapter.
Sat will give his tips on running a business, how the buck stops with you, the importance of good customer service, honesty and reliability. He is also willing to talk about work/life balance and how he has realised that he needs to change his to make time for important things.
As always this is a sharing and networking event and so we hope that everyone will be able to give something and everyone take away some practical help for their start-up.
