A huge thanks to those that attended the Business Lunch yesterday. I trust that you had a great time and enjoyed the Irish entertainment that Conor organised. On that note, thanks Conor for making the effort to secure Michael & Seamus for the event.

As I mentioned in between the Irish frolics, we have now launched the Business Lunch App, and it is available to download from the I-Tunes app store or Google play or wherever you may get your apps from.

You will need to search for ‘The Bizlunch‘ (note the space !)

The App has been created to develop a link between all Business Lunch participants. This is not a public app and it will remain exclusive to those
that attend the event(s).

Using the App you will be informed about the next lunch and you will be able to RSVP directly. You will also be able to look up other participants
profiles and contact them directly.

There is also a news feed page where you can raise questions, provide feedback and see what’s going on, as well as being able to upload news that
you feel is relevant to the Business Lunch community.

Our regular Business Lunchers, Vincent and Francois from e-lixir ( ), have kindly developed this App specifically for our Lunch members. They have provided the time and infrastructure to develop and launch the App, so a huge thanks to them for their continued support.

Your email address has already been registered with the App. All you need to do is download it, type in your email address and the pre-set password is: 1111

Once in you can browse through the menus, under more you will see a link to your profile. In the top corner you will see a standard settings icon
where you can edit your own profile.

If you have any questions regarding the functionality of the app or need any guidance please let me know.

Kind Regards,
Chris Webb
