You Don't have to be Sherlock Holmes to deduce that YBG is a good place to do business.

Date Posted: 31 Mar 2017

It was no puzzle to see why the latest Yeovil Business Group meeting was a packed room. The main event was Tim Marshall  from the Detective Agency but before the combined YBG brains were put to the test the usual round the table updates proved full of evidence that business is booming. Plus we had  a trio of ladies visiting us to introduce their business ideas.

  • Remus Graeme continues with perfect print that is good enough for any situation from Wimbledon to Village Fetes.
  • Bookkeeping Lee was relaxed in holiday mode prior to the coming of the financial year end.
  • Ice Maiden Julie runs a cake shop not a deli and with wedding season upon us she is to busy to try a career change into scotch eggs despite customer demands.
  • Detective Tim was back from his Big Bang Expo in Birmingham and buzzing following several fun forensic events.
  • Ewe Move Paul continues to provide top service to his landlords with his comprehensive lettings service that gives maximum yield with no hidden charges.
  • Mend it Mike has been doing some of his 'no request too strange' work repairing cat scratching posts.
  • Brown Ink Rachel has designs on growing her business futher but rules out another abseil from the local hospital with her logo on her back.

Of our Visitors we met.

  • An incredibly busy Dawn from The Emporium/ Waterloo Music / Yeovil Live. who still had the time to come and see our relaxed business group in action.
  • Wendy Blades a virtual assistant from SOS - Somerset Office Services. who can bring her 25+ years as a PA to your business either on site or remotely.
  • Daisy Benson who aspires to be the next Lib Dem MP for Yeovil @Daisy4yeovil on the twitter. With currently no election until 2020 she is on the longest job interview ever but it always pays to be prepared.

So what of the main event.

Tim Marshall from the Detective Project took centre stage. Tim combines his teaching back ground with the business founders Policing background and brings you fun educational science events for parties, corporates & schools. Whilst he decided not to drop one of his dead bodies on the YBG table next to the sausage rolls he did give us all a taster of his work. The audience split into groups and each given a box of evidence from which we could start making our assumptions. There had been a burglary at the local museum and in good old 'Death In Paradise' style the four suspects had been gathered. Was it the bankrupt curator, the clumsy brother in law, the security guard with a gambling habit or did the handy man get hand in the display cabinet. To be honest we only scratched the surface in the 15 minutes of the meeting but the entire room was actively engaged in the case with many random theories being presented based upon the evidence and crucially we all wanted to know more. As in real life all we could do was build our case for the prosecution to take forward.  In conclusion we discovered that Tim Marshall and the Detective Project are GUILTY of hosting innovative, fun thought provoking events and the true crime would not be to use him yourself to find out.
