Constellation Travel Mini-Coaches  Networking & Learning Events :: June-July 2006

Increasing your area of influence has got to be one of the most effective methods for enhancing your chances of success in a globally competitive business world. Networking and Learning events are being regularly organised by Universities, Chambers of Commerce, Trade Associations, etc. These have often been funded or heavily subsidised by grants from Central Government.

The European Social Fund is a good example of how government attempts to help "combat unemployment, prevent people from dropping out of the labour market, and promote training to make Europe's workforce and companies better equipped to face new, global challenges". In the UK, BusinessLink is committed to providing 'Practical advice for business' and often sponsors business networking events.

The aim of Action Networking is to take advantage of events that are being held outside the immediate Salisbury catchment area. Modern communications, including the Internet, make it easier than ever to exchange information but are a poor substitute for meeting face to face. For those prepared to make a commitment to travel as a group, visiting those events further afield introduces a new dimension to traditional networking. Join the inaugural Action Networking trip to Milton Keynes on Friday, 23rd June (see below) leaving from West Dean at 8:45am. Regrettably, this trip had to be cancelled at 9:00am on Saturday, 17th June due to a lack of participatory interest from SouthWilts/WestHants business people.

Ample car parking at West Dean available or check out train times to Dean station on the main line between Southampton and Salisbury

Register your interest today and be kept informed of future networking opportunities. Posted on 12th June 2006. Tel: 01794-341405

Explaining the Power of the Internet

Printed on the reverse of this page is the current content of the Webpage published at This Webpage first appeared on 4th April 2006 and contained a schedule of Networking and Learning Events for April-June 2006.

On 8th May it was updated to reflect changes as the result of the passage of time. (i.e. new events added and older ones removed). The current version was updated on 14th June and this explanation is being added on 16th June.

In its online format, the underlined text tells the reader that further information can be found by navigating with the computer mouse control to other Webpages elsewhere on the Internet. By hovering the mouse over the underlined text most Web browsers will show the destination URL in the status bar along the bottom of the screen.

The original design of the HyperText Markup Language (HTML) engineered a change of colour for the text to indicate that the user had already visited the linked information. A link to another document can also be engineered from a graphic. Again, the destination URL (Uniform Resource Locator) should be shown in the status bar.

The printed reproduction of a Webpage is really only for illustration purposes because much of the important information is on related Webpages accessible only by means of the described Hyperlink navigation system that has made the Internet so powerful.

The practice by some web developers of deviating from the original HTML format may sometimes make it harder for new users to easily navigate the Web.
