June Members Meeting 2019 – Digital Goody Bag

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend our Members Meeting on the 19th June. It’s such a pleasure to see so many people enjoying the day and learning from each other.

It’s really important to us that members have the opportunity to continue conversations after the event. That’s why we’ve created a slack workspace to make it easy to connect with other members. If you would like to be invited to join this online community, sign up here

In addition to this, Chris Williams (Change, Grow, Live) ran a fantastic networking session and is hoping to buddy people up based on the information shared at the event… watch this space!
