EnglishUK in Bristol Management Conference 2014 – what a great time we had!

Once a year EnglishUK hold a management conference, the destination changes each year. This year it was held in Bristol, and five of the managers at LSI/IH Portsmouth attended. The programme that was organised was stimulating and thought provoking.  The refreshments were delicious and the venue, The Bristol Marriott Royal Hotel, was superb, an added bonus was that we were able to catch up with some old friends.

It was lovely to finally meet Mel from Keltic who we have only ever spoken to on the phone  before and for Lea to see his old friend from Keltic Hugh Butland.

It’s always good to see the new books that are available – here are a few Keltic had on show.
And we were so happy to meet up with Russell Hall, who used to work with us here at LSI/IH Portsmouth before moving to Manchester.

The hotel was placed in a perfect spot right next to this green.

And look who we found… We have the same Queen Victoria statue in Portsmouth!
