Well I've been plugging on about it for months, so it would be sad to let it pass by for another year without giving it a hearty goodbye.
Every year conference grows, as you and your businesses grow. Our focus this year was on sharing real life practical skills and knowledge specifically to do with your Kids Bee Happy businesses, and the reason that you'll have see those magic "are you coming to conference?" words everytime you posted a question over the last few months is that there is a special magic in the room at conference that takes the advice, the tips, the knowledge that is being shared, and suddenly turns it from words you skim read on a page, to knowledge that you know and understand, and can see instantly how it will work and impact your business.
This year we introduced a shop, and craft demonstrations, we introduced the Year Book so that even if you couldn't get to all the workshops you wanted, you could still get the information and knowledge.
And many consultants got the opportunity to enjoy the spa facilities and the (very well heated) outdoor pool.
I always like to judge the warmth of an event by the level of noise in the room, and it is definitely fair to say that there was a large amount of chat in the room, and the bar, and the foyer, and even the lifts. It is great, as always, to see new friendships being made, and consultants from different teams meeting and chatting and sharing.
For Conference 2020 we will be returning to the Southern half of the country, location yet to be finalised but it will be in a town with a mainline trainstation to make it as easy for travelling as possible. Conference dates will be Saturday 10th October - and saving bank vouchers are already available if you wish to start saving.
