It's Friday, it's 4:00pm, it's...

For all you people looking forward to the weekend, here's a great way to relax and enjoy fellow entrepreneurs, local business people and friends talking freely about life! Welcome to the 7thWave podcasting platform!

Every Friday at 4:00pm, new and old followers of these podcasts, will receive this short blog introducing them to the latest podcasts from 7th AirWave: the 7thwave podcasting platform. This is open to all and if you like what you are listening to, next time it could be you. We would love to hear your stories and tales and from the feedback so far, there are many of you in the Hope Valley and Sheffield area's who are enjoying listening to the podcasts; over 40 to date.

This week we are featuring Tracey Stead and Ben Smith, who met up at the Destination Depot networking event in Kelham Island, (7:15am every Tuesday). Early doors networking certainly concentrates the mind and helps to get the day off to a "quick start". Personally I limit the events to 3-4 times a month and build up a good rapport and trust with the regular attendees. An important ingredient to good business!

Tracey and Ben discussing big charities, people perceptions and shared experiences while also running their own businesses.


This week, again, there has been a definite spike in interest in the Climate debate, (Environment Bill,  Extinction Rebellion, United Nations Climate Action Summit updates and the dreaded Brexit..), this could be a trend over the next weeks, months and years! Checkout the latest community, Hope Valley Climate Action, setup around the climate change debate and what we can do ourselves to effect a positive change for the future of our planet. The podcasts and blogs are not only a great advert for networking and getting to know our neighbours but an excellent "goto" place for debate and discussion, what do you think?

Furthermore, the purpose of the podcasts is to introduce you to the many varied businesses and characters who live and work in the Peak District and its surroundings. Please take time to listen in and enjoy. All feedback welcome! Of course, your can explore the site to hear from many of the other contributions if you can't wait for the weekly stars!

These podcasts are un-edited and raw, which I believe brings a element of authenticity to the conversations and I'm unapologetic about the varying sound quality. BUT we're looking to improve this as we move forward.

Have a great weekend....the sun has returned again, time to take in some fresh air and enjoy the countryside...
