7 days with Mike Clyne fom FeMan Consulting

Mike Clyne is our April sponsor for our First Wednesday Meeting.  We talked to Mike about his typical week.

Tell us about your typical Monday morning.

As I work from home I do the school drop off and then often nip into Knole Park for a run.  This is without doubt one of the greatest benefits of working for yourself!  Once at my desk, I am catching up not only with emails that have come in over the weekend and checking social media, LinkedIn etc but also reading the papers.  Working on my own I feel this is vital to stop myself becoming too isolated.

2. Can you explain about FeMan Consulting and what you do? It is very simple – to […]

7 questions with Ten2Two

1.What has changed at Ten2Two over the last 12 months?

We have taken the next big steps to grow our business further. We’ve moved into our new offices at St Johns Hill, Sevenoaks and we’ve employed our first member of staff since we started out nearly 5 years ago.

7 Questions with David Dennis from Sevenoaks Plans

DAVID DENNIS FROM SEVENOAKS PLANS

Tell us about your typical Monday morning?

Dropping my son off to School is the perfect start to the week!  Once I am in the office, I touch base with my staff to check the progress of each project they are working on. I answer any enquiries I have received over the weekend and contact potential clients to arrange a meeting. I will then call the local planning office and speak to the relevant planning officer to check on the progress of my planning applications and of course ask them the million dollar question ‘when do you anticipate a decision to be made on the planning application?’ If I have any news I will give my current […]

7 Questions with Louise Knowles from A Plan Insurance

7 questions with Louise Knowles from A Plan Insurance 

1. Tell us about your typical Monday morning?  Monday morning starts the same as every weekday morning for me. I arrive in the office first and make sure everything looks neat, tidy and presentable. I have to ensure that the previous night’s electronic data transmission ‘passed’ with no errors then change the tapes over in our server ready to store the forthcoming days data. Due to confidential client information all our data is stored on a secure server and the tapes are removed from the building so that if the worst was to happen, the data would be readily available to use in another branch. I then check for any missed calls from the […]

7 Questions with Jason Hart from Firefly Payroll

Tell us about your typical Monday morning?  Monday is most often used as an admin day for me, in the office, catching up with non-urgent correspondence and ensuring the rest of my week is planned correctly.  I will usually have an update meeting with our Director, Noreen Munro, at some point during the day, including discussing any matters that need attending to for our existing clients.  Monday is often the day I will use to send out an email newsletter to our subscribers and clients, raising any topics or issues relevant to the payroll industry.

 

Can you explain about Firefly Payroll Services and what you do?  Firefly is a provider of outsourced payroll processing services to both public and private sector clients.  We […]

7 Questions with Liz Scully from EASi Recruitment

This Week we Talk to Liz Scully from EASi Recruitment about her recruitment business in Sevenoaks.

Tell us about your typical Monday morning?

A typical Monday will consist of making sure everyone who has worked the previous week get paid on time.  Although it is the responsibility of the temporary workers to get time sheets in on time we pride ourselves at EASi in taking the time to chase any missing time sheets and getting everyone paid on time.  You’ll often hear people moaning about money, not with EASi though.  Then we can get involved with filling any new bookings, setting up permanent interviews, making appointments for candidates to register.  There is always something different going on which keeps us on our […]

1. Please can you tell us about your typical Monday morning
A typical Monday morning would consist of researching any news articles that may have appeared over the weekend relating to the Bank, banking sector or the global markets.
