Bridgwater's Breakfast Club - 20th December

The third edition of Bridgwater’s Breakfast Club took place this morning at YMCA Somerset Coast in Bridgwater.

The morning networking session feature a guest speech from Jerome Timbrell, of C2 Safety, talking about his life, how he’s overcome challenges and how he motivates himself.

Bridgwater’s Breakfast Club is a monthly breakfast networking event, organised by Red Berry Recruitment in association with New Leaf Life Design, Sedgemoor FM and YMCA Somerset Coast. It offers people from local businesses to get to know others in similar positions over bacon rolls and tea. Every month a different speaker is invited to talk on a subject.

Jerome Timbrell is the owner of C2 Safety, a Bridgwater-based firm who provide advice on safety. Jerome talked about the many challenges he has overcome in his life, including being held hostage at gun point, rapid weight gain and cancer.

In an awe-inspiring speech, he told attendees of how he turned his life around using running and motivates himself to succeed. Having had gastric surgery to help him lose over 10 stone, Jerome has gone on to run 110 marathons, including completing three runs (all longer than 26 miles) in four days. The content of the speech, as well the excellent delivery, left the audience truly inspired.

Just under 30 people attended this month’s session, which included a Christmas theme. Guests were treated to Bucks Fizz with their breakfast and invited to wear festive outfits. Chris Barrett from Auditel UK won a bottle of prosecco for best outfit, as he donned a busty ensemble.

We were also delighted to greet two young networkers from King Alfreds School. Sasha and Hannah have set up a company called Calore as part of a Young Enterprise scheme. They sell candles made up of completely recycled, environmentally-friendly products, under the mentorship of Hannah Hill from Poolbridge Accountancy.

2018’s first Bridgwater’s Breakfast Club will be held on January 17th, with guest speaker Russ Haworth talking about the use of podcasting in businesses. You can book your tickets for that here.
