Phew, it’s been a busy week. I have done a lot of work. Don’t call me a hero, but I’ve done it all with a cold as well. Remarkable. It does mean that this week’s newsletter is a little shorter than usual as I’ve not had any time to mess around on social media do any research. Some good stuff though, so enjoy the news…
Sometimes subscribing to this newsletter does actually pay off. Not often, I know, but occasionally it’s actually worthwhile. Today is one of those instances, as we’ve got free tickets to Teach a Man to Fish’s ‘Education That Pays’ conference in London on 15th November. This year’s theme is “Learning for Life: Entrepreneurship, Employability and Skills for Success”. If you use the catchy code 100ETPCON2r1p1 when making a booking you’ll save anything from £95 – £195.

We kicked off our Third Sector Digital Leaders course this week and a number of people have contacted me asking when we are going to be running it in 2018. We’ve got two courses scheduled for next year: one in April and May and one in November and December. We’re limiting each course to ten places so book soon if you want to guarantee your place.
