Great venue and super way to start the day networking with the Dorset chamber team at Bulbury Woods Golf Club. This venue is just off the A35 and well worth a visit. Great healthy smoothies and fruit were on offer with a tour of the facilities.

I attended an early breakfast networking meeting this morning in Sandbanks at Rick Stein restaurant. The view is really lovely looking out over the sea and we also had a good view of the biggest cruise ship ever to come into Poole harbour. The MV Boudicca, docks at Poole Harbour’s South Quay as part of a free eight-day cruise marking the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
The breakfast was really tasty and the room was buzzing. It was good to catch up with members of the Dorset Chamber and to meet some new contacts. What a perfect way to start the day of business.
I attended another exciting Dorset Chamber networking event today where I got to view the virtual reality world for the first time. I went under the sea and saw marine life and not a diving suit or breathing equipment in sight. As I looked a sea turtle swam past and then some jellyfish! It was such a fantastic experience. I then had a go at a game where I zapped objects which were coming towards me at a fast pace. There was such enthusiasm in the room and excited buzz. Business networking with a virtual experience, yes please!!
Ouch attended the DCCI April Simply Networking event at Westover Lexus 25 April 2019.
Ouch attended the Dorset Chamber lunch at the Captains Club in Christchurch on the 10 April. The sun was shining and the event was buzzing with 10 tables full of Dorset networkers. It was great to see so many familiar faces and meet some new contacts.
Following on from the Dorset Business awards in 2018 where Ouch Training and our friends BWT Physio sponsored the Employee health and wellbeing award we decided we needed an event to share with others all the amazing things Dorset businesses are doing to support their teams wellbeing.
With the support of Anne Warner from the Dorset Chamber and with sponsorship from Hall and Woodhouse, together we organised a really positive morning of wellbeing on the 1 March 2019. The event was held at the Hall and Woodhouse Brewery site in Blandford. Liz Willingham President of the Dorset Chamber opened the event with Anthony Woodhouse. Simon Cassin, our Director talked about the benefits of the Middaymile. All of the Ouch team do this every day, whatever the weather with our four office dogs! We love it!
Other speakers included Gary from Blue Sky financial, Georgina from The West Hants club, Debbie from BWT Physio and Lucy from Organix, who won the Dorset Business Award.
There was also time to walk around and have a health check from Live Well Dorset, get your office furniture sorted from Osmond Ergonomics and have a go at hooping with Kim and even try yoga! We also had the fantastic team from Dorset Wildlife Trust, Hannah from Purple HR, Wessex water, Bournemouth and Poole college and Livability there to talk to the guests about all the aspects of wellbeing.
Thank you to everyone for making this morning such a big success and helping us to promote health and wellbeing in Dorset.
