A Feast of Ideas at the Fellows Dinner
The IEP held its fifth Fellows Dinner in November, returning once again to Manchester. Supported by The Growth Company and hosted by Patrick Hughes FIEP. it was heralded as another successful event and the ideal opportunity for IEP Fellows to develop their combined thinking and grow their connections and networks.
This is what some of the attendees said:
"The best one yet. Many good conversations." Patrick Hughes FIEP, Director at Salientwork Ltd.
“The Work Company was delighted to support this excellent evening. It was a great networking opportunity to chat with luminaries from the employment field. At a time of great change and uncertainty, an excellent, structured discussion chaired by IEP’s Patrick Hughes, allowed us all to put the world to rights in what was an insightful and constructive debate over a fantastic dinner. I look forward to the next in the series and would highly recommend it to potential participants and sponsors alike.” Jerry Stokes FIEP, CEO at The Growth Company
“A thought provoking, interesting and thoroughly enjoyable evening. I look forward to the next event.” Steve Hawkins FIEP, CEO at Pluss
“Once again, an extremely valuable and interesting evening, filled with informative conversation and delightful company. The 'guided conversation' format of the evening helps direct discussion and enables frank exchanges on the matters impacting our sector, with people around the table that could truly make a difference. All that topped off with some great food and wine - certainly worth battling with the M6 traffic from Birmingham for!” Ayden Sims FIEP, Director of Business Development, Remploy
“The event was good from a networking point of view and we made some valuable connections.” George Baines FIEP, Managing Director at Standguide Ltd.
The next Fellows Dinner, kindly supported by Steps to Work, will be held on 22nd February at Bank, 4 Brindleyplace, Birmingham,. To book your ticket and find out more click here
