attending the ASE Conference 2016

ASE ConferenceI had the pleasure of attending the ASE conference on the 8th January, a fantastic event again, as it is every year. I would recommend going for the chance to pick up some of the ASE’s own literature at a bargain price alone, everything else is just the icing on the cake!

I have to admit to spending the majority of my time at the ASE conference wandering through the exhibition hall, simply because I like networking.  It is an excellent opprtunity to run into some of those old faces again and with so much inspiration around there is plenty to talk about too.  Too much to talk about even!  With it being close to home this year I felt like I knew more than the usual amount of people, so hello to anyone that I didn’t get a chance to stop and chat to in the end.

If you are a regular at ASE events then you are probably well aware of their fantastic Twitter conversation that takes place on a Monday night using #ASEChat.  If you are not aware, then get yourself on to Twitter between 8 and 9 on a Monday and get involved!  You can find all the details and the upcoming topics here – you can follow us on twitter (@PrimaryPracs) and I look forward to hearing from you next Monday!
