The conference held every September at the John Smiths Stadium is a yearly event in our diaries. It is a great way of catching up with people, old and new. Here is what Stacey got up to.
“I met up with some really good friends at the event, people I have known from way back when I first started networking. it was so good to see everyone again and share my news about going Ltd and becoming a director of Design that fits. It felt really posistive arriving at the event and announcing myself as Stacey Pratt, Design that fits.
The event was extremely busy with a large amount of exhibitors as well as delegates. I was amazed when after 10 minutes of being at the conference it was announced by Sheard’s that I was their first winner of the day of their competition! You can see me collecting my prize from the lovely team, images below. Hopefully they will have taken my advice and will be writing a very similar news article to this with a KBC12 update!
As always it was lovely catching up with Sinead at Ramsdens, she very quickly introduced me to their pick and mix stand which seemed to be working very well at drawing in delegates to the stand.
It was fab to finally meet twitter follower Cat from CatCreative who was, as tweeted earlier in the week, donning some amazing purple shoes.
A wander round and I soon found myself at the 4networking stand where, as usual Tom and Tony were seen promoting the popular networking group. It was so good to catchup with them both, and they were both really chuffed for me and my new venture. On the 4networking stand it was also good to see some of our work being displayed in the form of Business cards and leaflets.
Thank you to Sean, for my Huddersfield Place to Make it Badge, I have it on my blazer and will wear it with pride, and you never know, you may well encourage me to get to a town match at some point!
It was great to catchup with Tracy Sheldon of Brug Consultancy, who was there promoting Forward Ladies. We had a good giggle at some slight miscommunication/misunderstanding problems we had via text and realised that it is really easy to do when you can’t judge a persons tone and or when small words are missed out of a sentence, it can change the whole meaning of said sentence.
I ended up leaving the event also sporting a Huddersfield Place to Make it tattoo, to support the team on the stand who also were donning the tattoos.
Overall a brilliant event, well done to the team behind it, the organisers, Danny and of course the exhibitors and delegates. Will be looking out for the other events in surrounding areas and will see you all there!”
