To get the ball rolling... lets Meet and Greet!

Dear members,

Mark has suggested this date and venue for our first meeting. Subject to enough people being able to attend (please do respond to the poll and RSVP!!), this is now provisionally arranged - although if the date or location don't suit enough people, we may change these in the next week or so.

I'm really looking forward to seeing you all soon, and please email me separately with any additional feedback.

Isla

Original message from Mark:

Well, I joined this group for a reason, to meet more individuals like myself involved in careers coaching, guidance, development and employability related matters.

This is an attempt to try and get us together to meet, greet, share good practice, advise one another (without ego) and just generally network.

If this event is not convenient, then I hope someone else will keep the ball rolling and continue the suggestions.

I look forward to meeting you.

Warmest regards

Mark

    It was a pleasure to meet everyone yesterday! A very companionable and enjoyable evening altogether. I really appreciated being able to meet over a relaxing drink, and sharing our different experiences of working in career guidance. Thanks very much to Isla for thinking of it, and I look forward to seeing people again at future meetings.

    Many thanks to Isla for planning this event. It was interesting meeting other advisors working in different sectors. I liked the informal style of the meetup and learning about different roles within career guidance.

    Thanks to everyone who could make it; it was lovely to meet new contacts / see existing ones again, and I'm also really looking forward to meeting some of the folk who couldn't attend yesterday, at future meetings.

    For the first MeetUp, I am really happy, really really happy. My head and face hurt last night from smiling and laughing so much.

    I am really lucky that everyone is an expert in Careers coaching/guidance (well I think you all are anyway). Coming from an Employability background, it is good to see how others promote development in people and get a great sense of personal satisfaction. It was great to hear some of the things I thought would be a good idea was also shared and agreed with others. Very refreshing. I am really lucky to have met great people, learned plenty, looking forward to the next 'more structured' event.

    Thank you everyone for being so friendly and to Isla for creating the group!

    *One must remember to try one of those tasty looking ciders Isla was drinking last night!

    Unfortunately child care has become an issue. Faint ray of hope but on the whole looks unlikely.

    Hi all,

    I will be there between 6pm – 6:15 (fingers crossed), as soon as you reach The Grand Union, we should be using the down stairs bar, which is where you will be able to find me, trying to cool down and refrain from melting. {^_^}
