Network Leader Days

Our first Network Leader Day on Time Management & Delegation was a great success! We have had brilliant feedback from those who attended, here are a couple of quotes:

"Thanks you for a fantastic network leader day on Tuesday. I really enjoyed the day and learnt a lot from it that I'm putting into practice today! Helen Ashton was an inspiring trainer, energetic, friendly and knowledgeable."

"Just want to say thank you for a great day. I wasn’t sure what to expect but you exceeded my expectations & I got a real buzz out of the day. It was also really nice to meet other WiRE members & network leaders & I know I’ll be keeping in touch with some of them."

The next date of our Time Management & Delegation workshop is Thursday 12th June, Grantham Lincolnshire.

If you are not able to attend a Network Leader Day do please pass on the opportunity to one of your helpers or another member of your group so that the benefits of these courses are not wasted!

  Conference Comments & Photos

We all had a great day in hot and sunny Yorkshire earlier this month.
As usual, all the thought and hard work we put into choosing, the right mix of speakers and the right venue- on our very small budget, paid off!
 All our events now have to be self funding (as the networks are) and we are thrilled that we are still achieving the high standards we set ourselves. But don't just take our word for it, here is a quote from someone who came along:

"Thank you so much for a great day. It was packed from start to finish with really useful stuff.  Inspiring, motivational, thought provoking to say the least.  I made lots of new contacts and handed lots of business cards out too. Took a leaflet from HSBC re electronic payments - something I can now cross of my to do list. Renewed "old contacts". Put faces to the names of the WiRE team and what a bunch of very enthusiastic and passionate people you all are.  I work from home in a tiny village and unless I have a client every day I can feel quite isolated. It's a good job I enjoy peace and quiet.  Some people might think attending an event like this is a bit of a "jolly" I think it did me a power of good, it charged the batteries up, made me re-think a few things and sent me off with a spring in my step."
