Paco is a great friend of many years and is another person who features high in my network of business contacts. We have worked together for some 12 years and grew up together in the event infrastructure industry. I first met Paco in 1999 when I was part of a start up company, called Rola-Trac. Some 12 years later, the pitch flooring systems (we helped develop) have protected football grounds all over the world, when performers such as the Rolling Stones or U2 come to town.. That is just to name a couple! If you want, you could go on with the Police, Bruce Springsteen, the Cure, Robbie Williams, Take that, The Who, Genesis, Bon Jovi and many more yaddah yaddah!.

My friend Paco did the the full pitch infrastrucutre for Coldplay in Madrid. 36 hours later they staged the Copa del Rey Cup final between Madrid and Barce!

Read how they did it on BizNetworkGuy in Full..

So there I was sitting in a bar drinking ridiculously expensive Pinot Grigio in Dubai International Airport. I have been away from home for 4 days and this is the 3rd time I have been in Dubai this year. Sounds great but it puts a load of stress on those round you.

Some times it is hard for those you love to understand all the things you do. This may help explain some of the things that happen to me

Hope you’re all well? Video post above…

This week has been travel time, with a trip out to Dubai. It has been great on a number of levels. As ususal I have been networking away with a view to selling some kit; in this case Geostrut Carbon Fibre Masts. The trip came about bya spot of luck really. Orginally Craig Barker the CEO of Geostrut USA was going to represent the company interests at the Tetra World Congress in the Dubai Trade Centre.

I got  a call from Craig a couple of weeks back, explaining that his daughter was getting married and that to travel to the show the following day,  was probably a bit troublesome to explain to the family. He asked if I would mind going instead and when he explained that the costs would be covered, it took me approximately a nano second to agree to the trip.

Contains a video blog on how to get the most out of Trade shows! Especially the slow ones!

 So what is is all about?

Showing Off? Making your stamp? Improving you position?

I would say it is about all of the above. It is about getting some market authority and leadership in your field. It is about being respected by your peers for what you do in life. It does not matter what it is.

So what is it all about?

I have picked up some great tips in recent times from Gary Veynerchuk. In his book “Crush it”, he describes various ideas about how you can improve your standing with your peers, and improve your business profile. To enable yourself to do this, you have to do something you love. This is the only way you can sustain an approach over time.
