    This group looks like it's gone dead. Shame really considering how many people it has in it.

    This was worth every dollar! I gained so much from hearing the voices of others who have made it in the creative sector. I'll be there next time & I'll be sure to put the word out and bring a few extra faces to! Thanks so much for this Andy, it's given me a lot of extra drive to believe in myself. :-)
