The format was a little different this time. We decided to crack on early with bacon baps at 8.30am and kick off at 9am. Richard Slater our MC kept everyone to time and the event flowed beautifully. We were inspired by Deri Llewelyn-Davies, given top operating tips from Janette Pallas from Warwick University (and holder of the ABM Commitment to Mentoring award) and enthused by the refreshing tale of Canny Milkshakes from Liam and Simon.
Breakout sessions included Crowdfunding Demystified by Barry E James from the Crowdfunding Centre and Resilience, Wellbeing and Success by Liz Wright from RWS. For the first time we had equal interest in the topics!
Dr Andrew Atter from Pivomo one of our Approved Training providers gave us a run down on DMAP the virtual learning platform which kicks of with module 1 on the 24th October and we heard from Janet Marsden of Weighing Scales ltd on her mentoring experiences which have concluded highly beneficial with hard, tangible results with Paul Aisthorpe, Mentor and Coach.
We ALL left feeling inspired and motivated post a spot on conclusion from our Chairman Simon Fordham.
Thank you very much to our sponsors and their teams for making this happen; CB Partners, Orvia and Boost Lancashire – Cant wait until next year.
