Last night we held our monthly business networking event at The Park Hotel in Kilmarnock with over 50 delegates and before dinner, we were given a mini-tour of the Kilmarnock Football Club:
- visiting the Board Room
- seeing the Trophy Cabinets
- walking through the Changing Room
- sitting in the original 1961 stand
- standing on the astro-turf pitch
Back in the Dean Suite and after enjoying a 2-course hot fork buffet, we were delighted to recognise a very special lady in our membership, Margarette Bryan, our first ABW Legend. An ABW Legend is a member who has been long standing and has shown great commitment to ABW, whom the Committee wish to recognise in terms of their positive impact and contribution to ABW.
The event was sponsored Ayrshire Hampers, run by one of our youngest members, Greer Phillips who did a fantastic presentation on her business and even brought along some shortbread treats for us to indulge in.
Our guest speaker for the evening, was our very own President, Linda Hill Miller of LAH Travel who offered loads of top tips on low cost advertising and even brought in her own Sushi dog mascot to entertain our guests.
We rounded up the evening with a prize draw for our charity of the year, Beautiful Inside & Out and delegates took home gifts of all sorts, including pumpkins to carve and a very special bottle of whisky kindly donated by Fiona Lees, Chief Executive of East Ayrshire Council.
