    Hi members,

    Just a quick hello to everyone.

    My name is Stuart, I help run a Private Training Academy, whom together with Government (funding) and Team Macmillan (sponsorship) are looking to help up to 2,000 business owners train in Google, SEO & Social Media.

    The owner-knowledge is a missing link between the business and their Web/Marketing people being able to help them better, so I am here to network, enjoy and hopefully help those that want to know how to engage in Social Commerce and how this ties in with Google & SEO strategy. Based out of Stockport, Training the Northwest, for the pilot!

    If you are a registered Charity, you get the training Free!
    Have a great day
    Stuart

    Hi Guys,
    Just joined tonight, looks a pretty decent site.
    I am a director of a medium sized company that is split between retail maintenance, insurance reinstatement contracts and general building.

    Regards Mac....

    Hi & welcome.

    I'm not in your area but would be interested in hearing more about your insurance reinstatement work. Are you an approved contractor for insurance companies or their loss adjusters etc?

    Does it bring in a lot of work?

    What are the rates like?

    Hi H.J.S
    Most Insurance companies go through a third party, then onto the contractors.
    Issue with that is you work to their rates and you have to have a decent team that work well together that can get in and out quickly and leave a decent job that will hold up to a guarantee.

    Rates can be poor, loss adjusters can be unreasonable, policy holders expect the earth with more than 50% trying for extra work or just being plain hard work.

    From the start of the job when your scoping, your looking for damage that's not related to the claim and this gets documented, so at the signing off stage no blame is cast at the contractor.

    Working with Joe Public in this sector does wane ones faith in human nature...:cool:

    New on here so saying hi to everybody.

    My name is Robert Orrell and I run an audio visual installation company called AV AIDE from the Ribble Valley, just outside Blackburn.

    We are a B2B company providing consultancy, project management, installation, service and maintenance services to Audio Visual resellers throughout the UK. I am also considering developing into residential installations.

    I have slowly grown my company and reputation within the industry and am now starting to see real growth potential. Therefore, I am looking to seek advice on how to move forward as I am very keen to develop whilst I have the opportunity. I will be reading through the forum and starting my own threads to try and pick the brains of all you experts out there.

    I'm very much looking forward to networking, chatting and exchanging ideas.

    Rob

    Ladies and Gents

    My name is Phil and I am a Business Development Manager for PaymentSense. I am located in the North West.

    In order to avoid sounding like a sales pitch I will just say that I work with micro, small and medium businesses to save them money on card processing and to help them obtain short term capital that may help increase the success of their business.

    The reason I joined UKBF was because I have run my own business and hope to help others whilst on UKBF with any areas in which I have valuable knowledge (and that doesn't just relate to my current role).

    but apart from that it's really easy. Seriously most insurers and loss adjusters go through networks, such as sage or polygon.

    Loss assessors (adjusters that work for the client and not the insurer) are a good start too

    Is anybody familiar with laws relating to the purchase of potassium cyanide in the uk? We are a company which deals in electronic waste materials and I personally would like to trial a process before taking it further.

    My enquiry is related to precious metal extraction and NOT for anything untoward as I have been asked by one company I called ( understandably I suppose ).

    Will I be required to obtain a licence given the small quantity needed is my question in the first instance.
