Fellows Dinner Review

Posted By Heather Ette, 07 July 2017

A Great Platform to Discuss Positive Change


The third Fellows Dinner, hosted by APM, took place in Birmingham and was a great success offering an opportunity for senior sector colleagues to come together to discuss key issues, network and share ideas, giving a real perspective from those at the heart of the employability profession.

“APM were really pleased to support this Fellows Dinner and to host it in Birmingham. The chance to discuss issues relevant to our sector without having to wear a corporate hat the whole time was refreshing.” Pat Russell, Integrated Health Director, APM.

“The event was a very interesting evening, full of very informed conversation and debate, the venue was also a good choice. The people present were great company and the evening overall was very enjoyable. I look forward to the next dinner to have the chance to meet more senior and highly experienced sector professionals.”  Richard Brooks FIEP, Setas.

“The Fellows Dinner was just brilliant, comprising of experienced and knowledgeable individuals, awesome food and a lovely environment.  Discussions were inspiring and motivational.  The event highlighted to me, that behind all the day to day practice in the sector there are individuals who are passionate, dynamic, creative and intuitive; who want to improve life chances for individuals by ensuring approaches are fit for purpose and effective.  I was privileged to be in the company of Fellows who represent a positive culture for positive change in the sector.  Being my first event I did not know what to expect, I came away feeling valued as I had the opportunity to share my experiences and learn from others.  Looking forward to the next event.” Sharon Baker, Curriculum Development Manager, APM.

“I had a thoroughly enjoyable and informative evening, sharing conversation about the challenges and opportunities in our sector with peers.  Having the opportunity to discuss thoughts with others in an informal environment was really welcome, and encouraged a degree of candid conversation that would likely not have been achieved in other environments. The diversity of attendees also meant the range of thoughts and opinions was fascinating.” Ayden Sims, Director of Business Development, Remploy.

“Absolutely fabulous food, great company and very interesting conversation. The forum was great and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Sharon and listening to her take on things which was hugely refreshing.” Teresa Scott, MBA FIEP, FCIPD, Founder and Chief Executive, Kennedy Scott.
