We enjoyed yet another successful South West Leaders event in October which kicked off a members Connect lunch. We were delighted to
have our newest Industry Partner, Craig Holland of Maker+Co along to speak about the wonderful programs on offer at Maker+Co.
The LED Knowledge Workshops commenced with guest presenter Tara Whitney from Whitney Consulting and her workshop for writing
winning tender and grant application. Unfortunately, Tara could not attend in person but with our hybrid model and technology
and expertise available at BREC, she was able to lead this discussion over Zoom. Yet another innovation for 2020.
Our HR/IR expert, Bridget Green followed this up with her workshop about 'Successful Management and Responsive Techniques where
participants learnt some leadership techniques for improving workplace culture. She followed it on with a robust round table discussion.
"Ask The Expert' Mentoring sessions deal with the operational part of our members businesses with our Industry Experts on hand for one
on one mentoring.

addressed the group with a Members Insight of situations to avoid as a business owner. We then enjoyed a Leaders Insight address from Tim
Langford-Smith of Jaz Creative.
