    This time next week you could be talking to lots of other friendly people also running or starting a business, munching on some lovely free sandwiches and drinking free beer/wine/water/OJ.

    Then settling down to listen to a sales and marketing experts tell us how to use the phone much more effectively.

    Followed by a trip to the pub for some more chatting.

    Interested?

    Simon of AtlasCS is coming, Andy of 10 Yetis fame often puts in an appearence.

    Anyone else want to come along and make it a mini UKBF get-together?

    I'll be going. As I've only been doing this UKBF-lark for a few weeks it'd be great to meet some members in person!

    You seem to love events that make it particularly hard for me to get home afterwards

    Excuses, excuses. Wassamader? Too posh to sleep on a park bench for one night? : )

    Seriously though - what time is your last train out of London and where from?

    Sleeping in rough places? Easy. I lived in High Wycombe for 13 years ;)

    London Liverpool St at 9:55, so could possibly make it.

    You'd be fine. Liverpool St is a short walk away (or one stop on the tube). A lot of us end up at Liverpool St catching trains anyway - although usually a bit later than 9:55.

    I've moved this to "Events" and renamed it seeing as it looks like we will finally get a decent numebr of South East UKBFers in one room.

    Bunch of Hermits! As soon as I change the subject line to what it's really about and move it to the events section it all goes quite.

    So, who've we got comming?

    Dan "The Big Boss Man" Martin
    Andy "No Penguins" Barr
    Tom "Expensive Chair" Cahalan
    Simon "Insert Approriate Comment" Swords

    Chris "Auto-Starting Audio" Kaday has threatened to make an appearence too.

    There must be more of us in London/South East that can make it?

    I couldn't even find the thread about you moved it to Events. Had to do a search on your name to find your latest posts.

    But, yeah, I'll try and make an appearance. As myself and Duane are a client of Andy, no surprises there who's going to be paying the bill ;)

    Thats one thing I can honestly say about Andy - he's more than happy to buy the drinks for 1,000 people in the pub.

    I wonder which client he passes it on to?

    I'll buy drinks for everyone at DLA if Andy gets them in at the pub : )

    I used to be an I.T. manager for a law firm for a few years where a tie was the norm. There aren't many perks being self employed but one that does exist is the fact that I absolutely positively downright refuse to wear a tie!!! Even my staff are tie exempt :D

    Glad you like it Dan.

    Simon, don't you think "No Tie Si" would be better? : )
