Kilimanjaro success again for local health charity The Milton Keynes based charity Climb Your Mountain (CYM) is celebrating another successful climb of Kilimanjaro, the world’s highest free-standing mountain (5,895m). The team of 10 successfully climbed the mountain and raised about £10,000 for the charity. This was the 6th Kilimanjaro trip for the charity and they have an exceptional summit success rate. Charlie Wardle, the founder of CYM, who was on his 4th trip said “Once again the team were brilliant and fully deserve their success and experience of a lifetime. The preparation, training, fundraising and hard work was all worthwhile.”

Please email info@climbyourmountain.org for more info. Money raised goes directly to helping more people in the Milton Keynes area by offering a range of free courses and workshops covering a range of health topics including stress, depression, anxiety, confidence, nutrition and exercise. More information about these can be found on the website www.climbyourmountain.org

CYM has also linked up with a local orphanage in Moshi, close to Kilimanjaro and the team took over many bags of clothes, toys, pens and books and will do so again on future trips. CYM offers many of these challenges like Kilimanjaro, the Inca Trail, Everest Base Camp, Mount Toubkal and Great Wall of China and in the UK many weekend mountain trips to help raise funds for the charity and for people to have a great experience.

THE SIMPLE STRATEGY FOR INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS International Business Expo 3.0 event founders, Rapid Sales Solutions, reveal their simple four-pronged attack that transformed a passing idea into an international success story in just seven months. The very first international business-to-business exhibition created a tornado in Milton Keynes and the UK business community this month in the form of Business Expo 3.0, the brainchild of Buckinghamshire-based Founder, Victoria Beale. The exhibition, sponsored by Mazars LLP and organised by Victoria’s Newport Pagnell business Rapid Sales Solutions, was presented by Victoria to a crowd of over 1400 visitors on 8 March at stadiummk on International Women’s Day. Business Expo 3.0 made a statement to the world that one ambitious woman’s passing idea had metamorphosed into a monumental success in just seven months and MK Flyers can exclusively reveal the fourpronged strategy she used to attract global Blue-chip companies to the event, international media attention and robust political support for the new exhibition. “The four-pronged attack the team at Rapid Sales Solutions used proved to be simple, easily manageable and, without a doubt, very productive. The results speak for themselves! We attracted over 1400 visitors to the event on the day, over 80 exhibitors, including high profile Blue-chip organisations, and a wonderful line of support from politicians and business leaders.”

Vicky explains that the four key areas contributed equally to the success of the event and is currently being used by the Rapid Team to comprehensively develop businesses at a cost of only £1200* per month. “The key areas are Telemarketing, PR, Social Media Management and professional Video Production. Each and every factor both support and enhance the other contributing factors, steering the strategy to create success in every context. We take the stress out of applying the strategy and fully manage this for you, alongside our other bespoke offerings.” Business Expo 3.0 Road-show Seminars will soon be launched in cities around the UK, inviting businesspeople to ‘meet the experts’ and learn how to approach, manage and succeed in creating an international event. “We are also staging a Business Expo 3.0 awards evening later this year to give the exhibitors from this year’s event a chance to win some worthy lime-light and a VIP space at next year’s Business Expo 3.0 that is already set to be a full set out, just like this year.” Vicky comments. “It’s an exciting time for Rapid Sales Solutions! We’ve proved to the world that we can develop business both on a national and international level and we’re welcoming a full scope of new clients every day that want to be part of the success.” To speak to the Rapid Team about the ‘Magic Quartet’ strategy and other bespoke development solutions, to place a deposit to exhibit at next year’s Business Expo 3.0 (payment plans available) or to sponsor next year’s international event please phone 01908299050 or 07856234167 or email info@rapid-sales-solutions.co.uk

This is the magic ‘Rapid Quartet’ used as the strategy for Business Expo 3.0 (we co-ordinated the event from start to finish in just 7 months!) and this complete solution for business growth is now offered by Rapid Sales Solutions as a comprehensive package

MP’s Diary

By Iain Stewart MP, Conservative MP for Milton Keynes South

This month, in a slight change to my regular programme of school visits, I went to the Leadership and Training Centre (LTC) at Shenley Brook End School.

In March last year Shenley Brook End achieved National Teaching School status, this means they take a lead role in the training and professional development of teachers, support staff and headteachers from across the region. I was very impressed with the high quality professional training environment the LTC provides within the school. It is great that other schools can benefit from the high standards of teaching and training that Shenley Brook End has achieved. In a separate visit to the school, I answered questions from 6th Form pupils on wide spectrum of issues which were of concern to them, including the media and crime and punishment.

The airport already supports the local economy by welcoming air passengers heading for the motorsport hub at Silverstone. With the current demand for airspace and airport development in the South East of England, an already established site such as Cranfield will help contribute to local and international business going forward and I hope it will bring many benefits to the region in the coming years. I was recently fortunate enough to meet with Paralympic champion and double gold medallist Hannah Cockroft MBE to support the manifesto launched by the charity Whizz-Kidz. Whizz-Kidz is a charity that provides disabled children with the essential wheelchairs and mobility equipment they need to lead active childhoods. I was surprised to hear that Hannah Cockroft MBE actually received her first sports wheelchair from Whizz-Kidz in 2007, what a testament to the work they are doing. So, I am delighted to back Whizz-Kidz’s Generation Inspired manifesto. More information is available about their work on their website: www.whizz-kidz.org.uk.

I also visited Cranfield Airport to see first-hand the significant investment being made to attract business aviation to our region. During the 2012 Olympic Games Cranfield was one of the UK’s designated airports and saw an increase in small business aircraft during The Games. Closely linked to the work of charities like WhizzKidz is the ongoing Transport Committee inquiry into disabled people’s access to transport. If any local residents would like to share their experiences in this area I would be very happy to hear from them.

Introducing Secklow Sounds - your local radio station Currently available online at www.secklowsounds.org but with future plans to transmit on FM, Secklow Sounds is the local radio station serving the people of Milton Keynes. As a 24-hour station, in addition to live and repeat broadcasts, ‘on-demand’ show recordings are available through the website with many also uploaded to Spreaker and Mixcloud. The programmes are presented by an enthusiastic and committed team of 50 volunteers from all backgrounds and age groups, each bringing their own specialities on a wide array of music and other topics. The station is proud of its wide range of programmes that reflect the tastes of every type of listener. These include broadcasts on just about every kind of music genre, the arts, business, current affairs, religion, local interests and nostalgia. Secklow Sounds was the brainchild of station director and founder, Mike Johnson - winner of the 2000 Andrew Cross award for the best programme by a Restricted Services Station. The ethos is to create a friendly, family environment to bring people and communities together. In addition to the regular programme content, presenters interview local interest groups, entertainers, business people, charity organisers and others on-air and attend local events. This station’s role is succinctly summed up by Mike Johnson: “The intention is to bring together people from all backgrounds to produce an unrivalled variety of programmes celebrating the rich diversity of cultures, music, food and traditions that is Milton Keynes, and will include business, health, sports,

18 mkflyers

the arts, faith and non-faith groups. As a community station we will encourage participation from all citizens, defending their interest and reflecting their views. Cultural diversity is at the heart of Secklow Sounds and all ideas can be debated in our programmes, and a multiplicity of views will be fairly presented.” Secklow Sounds works in partnership with local organisations including Inter-Action MK who provide facilities at its headquarters for the studio. In return the station provides radio production and presentation training to its user groups. One

programme project: ‘The Groovy Gecko Radio Show’ involves young adults with learning difficulties. Shows are also presented by students aged from 14 to 16 and the station actively provides work experience for students studying media. If you have some free time, especially during the daytime and would like to contribute as part of Secklow Sounds’ family of presenters, please contact Mike Johnson on 07757 816316 or by email to mike@secklowsounds.org.

Small businesses will lead the way in 2013, says company whose tenants already employ 1000 people Milton Keynes will boom in 2013, says the town’s largest serviced business premises provider, as the number of people employed in its units tops 1000 at the close of 2012.

“As Milton Keynes business booms, led by small businesses, we are already identifying potential new units that can be converted to provide the premises needed for small companies to thrive without hassle.”

Bucks Biz, with over 400,000 square feet of space and 150 tenants in Bletchley and Denbigh, says it is already planning more units to cope with the expected growth in demand and bringing forward plans to develop extra space at the huge Interchange House in Howard Way.

Bucks Biz, with units all over Milton Keynes, is renowned for straight talking and dealing; not hiding costs and not charging for many of the little things that keep businesses ticking, but which can be annoying to the point of distraction. “We really believe that if our customers are happy, then they’ll be free to get on with their businesses, which in turn will expand,” added Dominic.

“Our units currently provide work for around a thousand people and we have seen that figure rise steadily,” said Dominic Muscat, a director of the company that owns the business.

POSITIVE LIVING A New Start…

No one knows your life journey better than you. The thoughts that you think; what you’ve been through, witnessed, gained and have lost. Yet would you believe that through it all - you were not alone? That someone; something; knows you even better than you know yourself? From the moment you are born and whilst even in gestation, you are conditioned to the circumstances that will surround you in early life. You take on information, some your own and some from others, you slowly build a picture of how you perceive this life to be – and then you live it – often until now without looking back. Yet no two situations are the same. You have your personal thoughts, your personal likes and dislikes, your place in life is not the same as for any other – even within the same boundaries of the same family. Even a few close friends who go together to see a movie will gain completely different viewpoints at different times… From early years until now you’ve gained exceptional information and experience, but this is just the tip of what is destined to be yours during this lifetime. To date has simply been a gathering of your personal tools, talents and gifts, a gathering of Karma that once you know how - can easily fall away as you move forward. During every stage that you have lived through, you supposed that you were living who you were – or were meant to be, but again this was just a facet of your whole journey still unfolding, for you are more than you can begin to wish or guess… If you are indeed the master of your own life – you can begin to alter what comes in at any time. You can redraw, reshape, refine or start again at any moment, not from the beginning but from now this very second, with the knowledge and experience you’ve gained to date. Draw a line on what’s gone before and start again. Begin to be aware of the words you choose to speak. You may be working towards a goal post – but your words may portray the opposite, you might be sabotaging what you really want to gain. Look carefully at your thoughts, are they as confident and clear as they should be to move you forward, or again do you sometimes doubt your own ability?

(I am I) Every day that you awake is a brand new page – a clean fresh start. It’s a new space that is unwritten until you use it. Yesterday is over, so is last night or even this morning, and the future though we speak of it is not yet here – it’s born of every action in every second of your NOW. Recognise your personal power and how you choose to use it. Do you choose to be life’s asset or do you choose to hold life back? You write the unfolding program you daily live. (I am I). The world itself is in the middle of the greatest shift that’s ever been since man’s arrival. Things are not getting worse – all is shifting - regaining balance, and collectively and individually this falls to us to help it work. Through our actions we take life forward or hold it back. Change starts individually within your own mind, within your usual thoughts and behaviour patterns. This is the beginning of a new chapter of mankind’s unfolding, understanding and self-discovery, with many chances to rethink, redraw and rechoose who you are and what you’ll give back during your time span here. Be strong yet kind and patient in self review along this journey... For us to perform a task as large as this one on our own would be impossible, indeed that’s how we got to reach this point today. When we let down our personal armour or protection we feel vulnerable or weak, so we keep it up, and expertly since early childhood we make it thicker. Yet we are not alone and never have been. We are surrounded by energy, by love and by Earth’s own live giving and guiding forces, and working with them makes us confident and strong. Change might not always be easy, but we are in this process together, with tasks and talents that lie hidden until we find them. Nothing is so difficult that it can’t be overcome. You simply need new insight, information that will help you win and take you on. (I am I) It is by right of birth that you will win though what you endure. Happiness and peace are there for all. You simply have to know how best to gain them. Every single soul is plugged into Earth’s web of life. You daily send out signs and signals that attract/ deflect the things you then will face. You are each live open vessels for creative energy to connect with and flow through. You are the intelligent force of NOW in physical action. (I am I) The channelled works of Stephanie J. King will help you understand this process even better should you wish... Visit:Stephanie J. King Soulpreneur & Divine Guidance Lady www.stephaniejking.com www.channelledbyspirit.com www.positivelivingmk.com (under construction)

Here’s what our customers say about mkflyers... Thank you for the excellent work you have carried out to successfully support and improve our local advertising with Your Local Flyer over the past 2 years. The whole process is simple, from your help initially designing our advert, through final proof sign off, print and web advert. The really good news for C & R Technologies Ltd is that we are seeing a great return on our investment in advertising on a monthly basis with you. For every pound we spend we are seeing a £4 return; now that is the Business at Our Fingertips. To sum up, I have found the MK Flyers Team to be reliable, efficient and very cost effective for local advertising in print and on the web. I have no hesitation in recommending you.
