Thanks Dave.


Anyone that is coming to Banstead on 13th January Care & Share day) , please have a think what you would like to discuss this year. It might be easier to talk to real people and have a good old fashioned chat.

For everyone else, including lots of new people who have recently joined, please let me know what you would like to discuss in 2010.

thanks,
 Danny

a few things that spring to mind are:-

Booking forms - Do you use them, if so what do you include?
Time planning - If you are lucky enough to get more than one enquiry for the same day how do you plan it etc to make sure you not only have enough time to get to a job but set up on time and does anyone have any tips on convincing people to shuffle the times of their party around an existing booking.
Marketing - I know it has been discussed in the past but we are constantly getting new members who may well have a new take on the subject.
Websites - Are they important?  Prices or not? To be honest the options with this one are limitless.  Also any methods people use to stop others stealing their photos from their websites?

After that lot my brain has gone back to sleep but I may try and wake it later when my 3 yr old has finished playing his electronic drum kit as I really can't think with it on  :shock:

How about themeing your balloon act or balloon models to fit in with popular themes for childrens parties eg Pirates, Wizards, Wonderland, Superheroes etc?

Danny thanks for looking after this section of the forum for everyone, you have come up with some great topics of conversation via the typed word since it's been going and I'm sure a few will come up with other suggestions to keep the discussions going forward for 2010  :D
