Monday, 01 Feb 2016


The Source Conference Centre in Sheffield saw a great turn out as La Jolie Ronde Licensees & Tutors from the Midlands and as far as the Isle of Man gathered for the first Licensee meeting of 2016.

La Jolie Ronde's General Manager, Steve Baker, opened the meeting and gave a full company update. Founder Colette Hallam together with Anthea Collard took an questions and answers session about the newly launched course programme.

After lunch Pivotal Education's Barry Stay delivered an safe guarding children. After the session licensees and tutors commented how helpful and important this subject was.

Finally the day ended with Licensee achievements which saw Licensee of the Year presented to Stephanie Kelsey who teaches French in the Isle of Man.

Stephanie was chosen as she is very relaxed and animated with her pupils and this clearly adds to their enjoyment of the classes. She delivers a good range of activities and plenty of resources to keep her children focused. Stephanie's enthusiasm for the subject is infectious and she has worked hard to grow and maintain a very strong business. Stephanie is a shining example of what can be achieved as a licensee with La Jolie Ronde and a very worthy winner!
