We arranged a series of interactive surgeries in locations around England. They ran from 10:30 to 15:30 and provided a great opportunity to spend time working with our business toolkit expert, Lorraine Walker. She showed delegates how to enter data onto the EYBZ toolkit and how to generate results, as well as answering any other queries they had.
There were a maximum of 8 delegates at each surgery and WiFi was provided for access to toolkits. Full joining instructions were sent the week before each surgery and free lunches and refreshments were provided. Everyone bought their own information, such as past accounts, staff data and number of child places etc. Lorraine then worked with each delegate on their own laptops, so any data being used remained confidential.
We had some excellent feedback from attendees at the various surgeries held during the summer in:
London (20 June) Huddersfield (27 June) Newcastle (31 July) Manchester (7 August) Birmingham (16 August) Milton Keynes (22 August)
“The surgery has been very helpful, reflecting on our business and spending time with my colleague without the distraction of a busy office back in the setting. It has been perfect timing as we are reviewing our budget in the months before September, so it is spurring us on.”
