We’re on a Steve Jobs style retreat this week

In Falmouth

Okay not exactly a retreat more of a bit of a breakdown, re-energize and feedback on the year coupled with a bit of fresh air, shopping, exercise and we suspect some drinking (apparently Jacobs Ladder is the place to be). We’ve listened to the great TEDxBristol folk and will re:BOOT!

We have a lot of interest from companies wishing to engage and sponsor the Workshop Wednesdays which is great news. We will be putting together some packages to better support companies and enable us to feed ourselves (and pay for Falmouth! [just joshing as that’s out of our own pockets])

Whilst we are away though our lovely friends and members are stepping in for us to host our
