Being personal is something that needs consideration when looking for new business. Technology has transformed the way we do business and this week I had the pleasure of remembering the importance of being personal.
I’m on the committee of Children with Cancer and we have an annual event on the 14th May Tarrants Quiz Party and part of the preparation process was deciding on the food that was going to be served. I had the pleasure of being invited to the “tasting” to decide what the 300+ guests will be eating on the night.
I was asked to arrive at The Brewery, in London for 12pm and what a surprise it was to be walked through the kitchen into a specially designed room overlooking the madness that was unfolding in front of me, whilst the 30+ team of chefs prepare 400+ meals with special guest Tom Hardy.
There were three places perfectly laid out for myself, and 2 other committee members to enjoy four different starters, mains and desserts along with a selection of Red and White wines to compliment each course.
We were presented with our starters, to which Tom spoke to us about in detail (which I have to say were amazing) then disappeared until we had finished and re-appeared to talk passionately about the mains.
Must watch video of Tom talking about his passion: Why Being Personal Wins Business
An hour and a half later, I rolled out of the Brewery, thanking Tom for an incredible experience and vowing to write a blog about my experience.
The moral of the story… Will I ever forget the personal touch Tom gave us? NO. Will we want to book the venue next year for the event? YES.

I would love to hear your story of having a “personal touch”.
