June Members’ Meeting 2018 – Digital Goody Bag
Thank you to everyone who attended our June Members’ Meeting. We had a fantastic day filled with great speakers, workshops and networking. It was such a pleasure to see so many of you enjoying the day and learning from each other. What made the day even more exciting was live-streaming the event up to Glasgow, allowing our members up in Scotland to take part in the day too!

So that no one misses out, we have put together a Digital Goody Bag for everyone to enjoy, which includes all the speakers’ slides, extra handouts and resources, and upcoming events.

Our next Members’ Meeting is on the 20th September 2018. Places run out fast so please register below if you can attend.
