Newark Business Club
Eighty business people attended the meeting of Newark Business Club at the Everyday Champions Centre on Friday. Club chairman Amy Codd said the next meeting would include an open forum ahead of the General Election on June 8, for members to ask questions. Amy asked for questions to be submitted to her in advance where possible.

Annual report
Amy delivered her annual report and reflected on progress in some of the areas where the club is currently lobbying, as well as some of the more light-hearted activities undertaken in the last 12 months.

From the EU referendum debates and the Christmas jumper day, to the rail summit, We Love Newark campaign and the recent skills share, Amy was pleased with the development of the club and its activities and urged members to continue to get involved. Amy was re-elected as chairman for her third and final year and Lesley Pashley was re-elected club secretary.

Newark in action
James Fountain, chairman of the Action Group, shared his frustration at the lack of progress made on suggestions to improve the safety and traffic flow on the roads in and around Newark, and voiced his concern Newark could become a no-go location, especially on a Friday afternoon.

He praised Severn Trent for its scheme to improve sewage works across the town. James was pleased to note that businesses affected by the disruption would be compensated and that the overall communications by the water company had been very well delivered. James shared news of big investment projects taking place around the town which would be making use of construction companies and boosting the jobs market as well as housing development plans.

Finally, James urged all businesses to look out for opportunities to be involved in the Tour Of Britain when it comes to Newark in September. If you would like to attend the next Action Group meeting please add May 22 to your diary and contact James for location details.

Treasurer’s report
Malcolm Ellison presented the annual treasurer’s report to the club and said a recent increase in entrance fee helped the club to continue to lobby on a number of topics on behalf of its members.

It’s a Knock Out
Keith Girling from Newark Patriotic Fund invited club members to take part in the 2017 It’s A Knockout challenge on Saturday, June 24. Businesses are welcome to enter a group or come along and support from the sidelines with family.

LIVES Save a Life Campaign
Amy Rose and Kirsty Raywood from LIVES, a Lincolnshire charity that supports 700 volunteers who respond to 999 medical emergencies, attended the club on Friday and delivered a presentation about the vital care that LIVES delivers to the local community. The charity, which has been around for 48 years, helps more than 21,000 people a year around 58 people every day.

Amy shared some startling statistics about survival rates for cardiac arrests, stating that for every minute a victim was not receiving CPR after a cardiac arrest their chases of survival were reduced by 10%. Thankfully, Kirsty took to the stage to show club members how to recognise people in need and the correct way to respond. LIVES are aiming to train 10,000 people to deliver CPR in a campaign with BBC Radio Lincolnshire to improve survival rates.

Focus on… MindCoaching Solutions

Mental illness is estimated to cost the UK economy as much as £100bn a year; and £6.5bn is the figure mental health is reported to have cost UK business in 2015.

We believe these figures don’t need to be so high. We believe that through education, awareness and a better understanding of who we are and how our minds operate, we can learn new ways of thinking and therefore coping with life’s challenges.

MindCoaching Solutions have a passion for people and change, we have a passion for reducing the numbers you read above, and we have a passion for helping business become happy, healthy productive environments.

All trainers at MindCoaching Solutions have a deep understanding of therapeutic processes. We do the work because we love working with people and seeing people grow.

Our learning comes from the oneto-one work we deliver every day with clients. We are at the coalface in terms of what people are experiencing; we take this learning and deliver it back into business as education, enabling attendees to benefit from real-life situations.

We live it, we breathe it, but most importantly we understand it. Childhood learning or programming is responsible for how we behave as adults. Once we begin to understand more of our early life we begin to get a sense of who we are and how we operate.

The learning we then receive via MindCoaching Solutions workshops, equips us with the tools to survive the busy competitive world we live in.

If you suspect that your business is sluggish or not as healthy as it might be, then please contact us and let’s have a chat. All of the work we deliver is bespoke to your business and environment, ensuring you get the personal service needed to elevate your team. E: Tel: 01636 330007
