The Bristol Hotel

The Bristol Hotel, on the waterfront in Bristol, was the venue for this year's Licensee meeting. Steve Baker, General Manager for La Jolie Ronde, opened the meeting and welcomed existing and new licensees and tutors. He followed with a full company update then introduced Licensee and Area Support Advisor, Emma Hodder, who delivered a highly amusing presentation entitled 'A Day in the Life of a Licensee'. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it! Licensees then benefitted from group discussions on running your business and teaching classes. After lunch Licensee Achievements were announced as well as the much awaited "Licensee of the Year".

An excellent turn out
