The Source Training & Conference Academy

An excellent turn out

The Source Training and Conference Academy, at Sheffield, was the venue for this weekend's annual training meeting for Licensees around the Midlands & The North.

General Manager Steve Baker opened the meeting by welcoming everyone which he followed with a full company update. Steve then ran a short presentation, produced by Licensee and Area Support Advisor Emma Hodder, entitled 'A Day in the Life of a Licensee'. Slightly "tongue in cheek" but everyone thoroughly enjoyed. Before breaking for lunch the Licensee team 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".
